Hi,

I have a 2.0 TDCI Focus with 94k on the clock (I bought the car in Dec 08 with 90k on the clock). The car has a full Ford Service history, starts first time every time, pulls well in all the gears and generally seems to go ok. However one thing has been playing on my mind. Reviews of the TDCI engine mention how quiet it is. I would not describe the engine on my car as quiet, in the morning it sounds like a diesel (!) and on the move even when it warm you know that you are driving a diesel. On the motorway allthough it goes well the sound can become quite intrusive (however I believe that Focus's do have an issue with tyre/wheel noise and refinement). Question is as my car generally fine is the noise anything to worry about? Is it just me being too optimistic and that I need to realise that a diesel no matter how good will always sound as it does? The other day I noticed some oil on the manifold near to where the glow plugs and injectors are. Is this connected and should I be worried about it?

Thanks.
