Car died... trouble starting.. when it does knocks really bad? Possible coil?????


Asked by Aug 18, 2015 at 04:02 AM about the 2002 Dodge Intrepid SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Driving down the road my car died..will barely start, when it does.. I have to keep foot down the pedal or it will stall... also when it does start it knocks really bad, like a rod gone or something... a guy who helped push the car to the side of the road said it sounds like eletrical and the coil is bad... any info would help.. Thanks

1 Answer


Find out what the knock is first, if it is a rod then the coil is a mute point as the engine will have to be overhauled. I have never seen a coil make a rod knock sound.
