Question about 2010 Ford Fusion 2.5
I took a 30 minute phone call via bluetooth and foolishly had my engine off when I did so. After a while the bluetooth dropped out and the dash went a bit weird. When I tried to start the car, the starter made this rapid rattling/knocking sound that I've never heard a starter make before. Is it just a simple drained battery? Again, it's not a sound I've ever heard, but then I've never had a battery die on a late-model car before, so I'm not sure.
Sounds like the battery disharged. If the key was on along with the lights than 20 minutes would be enough to drain the battery. Try a jump start. it should get you going. I would have the battery tested after driving for at least an hour at highway speeds just to make sure it is good.

SOURCE: Bad Water Pump??
A hot motor will spark-knock but not under normal temperature. I know someone that has a taurus and it would only overheat if you drove it. He changed the thermostat and later the radiator. Still had the problem. He asked me about it and I told him to change the water pump. They have plastic impellers on them. He did replace it and found that all of the impeller blades were gone on the old pump..

SOURCE: I've spoken to several mechanics on my Explorer. I lost oil pressure and drove it home from work around 30 miles, it started knocking really bad. I had just changed the oil, they are stating I wou
Yes, I agree. Overhaul, or new engine time. Loud knocking indicates your crankshaft bearings are toast-it won't be long before a piston rod goes through the block, or the engine siezes up. Overhauling an engine with a bad knocking means a complete teardown and rebuild-very time-consuming, labor intensive, and very, very expensive. You might want to consider a used replacement engine with low miles as a cheaper alternative. Good luck.
