A week ago my '96 Ford aspire clonked out. It wouldnt start actually. It was in the driveway. And it wouldnt start, when I turned the ignition, it wouldnt even make a noise. Well, a few days before, or less, the car was really riding on fumes. So much that I believe the car started to make a new noise. One that I havent heard before. It sounds like its making a "hydrolic" noise now. Ever sense, it hasnt started. So I jump start the car with a battery charger, and it jumps right up. Let it sit on idle for about a half hour, then we went to the store. And We thought it was safe to turn it off by then. But it wouldnt even start. So we get a jump from a good sumaratin, and just as soon as we made it to another store it clonked out right in the parking lot. So I call a cab to get another jump, we go about a block and then it clonks out right on a green light in the intersection. We ended up pushing it out into another parking lot. Very frustrating. So we call chevron Triple A services to take a look at their shop. They put a new battery in it (even though we put a new battery in it just 4 months ago). And they checked the alternator. And cleaned the terminals. Thats all. At least thats all I thought it was. So it rides real nice for about a day and a half. Until today, when I go to turn it on, AGAIN! It wont even make a peep when I turn the ignition. Why is it not making a sound? IT cant be the battery. Im geussing so lose connections hear!> Why does it not make a sound when I turn the ignition, and if I need to jump it to start, why does it clonk out? What do you think is wrong?
have the same problem?
