I have the same problem with my '06 Spectra 5. I haven't noticed the knocking sound though. The weird thing is my rear window washer works fine which leads me to believe that the washer pump is still OK but what do I know :D

Well I had this issue and the only way these can be replaced is by a machine shop who will pack new barrings with a high pressure machine. The practical thing to do is to get a whole new hub assembly(the metal assembly by the brakes) from a salvage yard or online since this may very well be cheaper. The tool to replace the hub can be rented at Auto zone.

Hello, my name is Mario.
1. Disconnect battery negative cable.
2. Drain engine coolant
3. Remove bolt and nut for thermostat housing
4. Remove the old thermostat
5. Put a new thermostat and gasket (Install thermostat into cylinder head with jiggle pin positioned up.)
6. Place thermostat housing
7. Fill radiator with engine coolant
8. Connect battery negative cable
9. Start engine and check for leaks.

it is probably the starter assuming the engine isnt locked up. I would check to see if you have battery voltage at the starters solenoid wire with the key in the start position if you do i would check the fuses and starter relay

It might have a partially blocked fuel line or ait intake supply.
Try to check the compression, it might be loosing compression when you demand the engine to move the vehicle.
