My 2005 Jeep Liberty has knocking noise in the motor. What is causing it to make that noise?

Asked by Aug 16, 2014 at 02:46 PM about the 2005 Jeep Liberty Renegade

Question type: General

My Jeep Liberty leaked  the oil out of it around the oil filter and then it started making a knocking noise. I put more oil in it and started it up and drove it home. The motor made a knocking noise all the way home. It would get louder when you stepped on the gas. Does any one know what is making the knocking noise in my Jeep Liberty.
