Hey all recently got myself back into a ford its a 1999 2.0 16v focus.
unfortunatly it seems to have developed a problem under moderate to heavy acceleration the is a heavy clunk / bang from the engine bay area the car seems to run reasonably at a constant speed although just after the clunk there seems to be a clicking noise and engine seems nosier than normal this does settle down once at a constant speed.
not sure if this is related but theres also a small notch when turning the steering wheel right worse when cold seems to go away when warmed up
and the car seems to loose power intermitantly never more than a few seconds usually split second and usually feels like im driving into a strong headwind.
seems alot but the car was basically free (swap for a car i was going to scrap anyways)
i have a few ideas but im no expert in diagnosing problems......
any help appreciated
