Open your hood there is a box on the right and open it there are plugs take out the plug that has a 3prong should be the one in the front the cost for that part is about $4.00 no more then $10.00 It took me asking about 20 auto mechanic's and still nothing one day my cousin pulled it out told me to get this and starts every day and if it is not that clicking is usually the starter. Do you have the code on your drivers door? Do you know it? I know how to locate it if you are having problems finding it.

Would likely require a complete tear down and rebuild of the engine. A loose piston rod will cause a loud knocking noise. You said very very loud, so I think that would be the engine lower end, a rod or crankshaft or piston problem.
If that's the case, you'd be better off just replacing the engine.

Grinding noise when braking, very loud what do I need to do


I would pull all the wheels and inspect the brakes. If the brakes are grinding it should be pretty easy to spot.

Typically C/V joints will start to click when the get really bad. Especially when talking tight turns at slower speeds and accelerating.

1993 subaru loyale is making a horrible knocking/clunking noise


Hi the only other thing it could really be is the wheel bearing itself, usually in subarus they grind or clunk with wheel movement so if you go faster so does the noise, a garage would be able to tell you strait away as you cant really pull them apart without the right gear. Also check the strut, very unlikely but if a spring is collapesd it wll make a similar noise but wont speed up etc, its also worth noting that a cv can make the noises you describe but it would have to be completly destroyed and quite noticable hope this helps

Sounds like the starter need to be replace or rebuilt.
The clicking is due to the starter still partially engaged. Grooves are worn on the contactors and the plunger is sticking in the starter.
