  1. Hi Everyone

    Hi guys (and girls!) I'm Arrow and I currently drive a 1996 Ford Ka 1.3 First Edition. I've had a Seat Ibiza 1.4 (also from 1996) before but that car broke down almost every 100 yards. So, I ditched it, saved some money and bought myself a 1996 Ka. Lovely car, very few problems so far. If there's anything else you'd like to know, don't hesitate to ask!
  2. Hi there! When I started my 1996 Ford Ka 1.3 Endura e last morning the engine made a strange ticking noise. The noise appeared when I started the engine, during low gears and when I depressed the clutch in high gears or when I took my foot off the throttle. Several people on the internet indicated it could be one of the tappets, but the sound doesn't get any faster/louder when I accellerate and it sounds nothing like the sound in this video I'm not too familiar with car mechanics so I'm hoping one of you is able to provide me with a possible explanation or fix for the problem, as I don't want to waste a couple hundred of euros on a garage if it's something I can fix myself with a spanner. Thanks in advance!
