  1. It's been like it since I've had it (About 2 1/2 years now) and I think it has got louder. The oil is changed around every 6 months or so, my husband checks all that over. Would un"gumming" them be a difficult/expensive job do you know?
  2. Hello everyone, I've got a 2003 Diesel Fusion and I'm noticing a smell coming into the car whilst idling. I've had a look at the engine today and I can seem a little smoke coming out from the top and back it seems. I've not had a proper look at the exhaust for corrosion or holes yet. It's also got a tapping noise from the engine, perhaps something to do with the valves - I've been told they could be "Coked up" about a year ago when my Husband asked the local garage - and has gradually become a bit louder over time. I'm trying to decide whether I want to get it fixed and keep the car as it's been so reliable or whether I want to sell and buy an automatic, which I prefer. If anyone could give me any suggestions and advice on the faults and rough estimates on how easy/difficult it may be to fix or get fixed, I'd be very grateful. Thanks Harri
