97 Ford Probe. 2.5L GT, 107,000 miles. Two days ago I tried starting my car and it died. It took 3 tries and revving the engine before it would stay on. After I drove about a mile it started making this loud " knocking" or rattling noise from the engine. The oil guage jumps up and down and the clutch wont come all the way back up when you pres it. I know my car needs some work, but what can this be. When my spark plugs, wires and slave cylinder were switched out the guy told me that something was leaking down into 1 of the plugs. I was having problem with the car for a while and then it sat for 2 months and it seemed to get better but now worse. Can someone please help me? I'm tired of getting screwed
