      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Afternoon, having a bit of trouble with finding a solution to an engine noise I've got right now. When I start the car up from cold it's super loud - sounds like a tapping or knocking sound that will eventually fade off when the car heats up. There's also a similar sound when you rev the engine either cold or ran in, and it'll make a loud noise as it's dropping revs. If you can imagine accelerating from 1,500 - 3,500 revs and then changing gear - as you're changing gear and the revs fade down whilst you slot into the next gear up it'll make this raspy growl. It's also audible when revving the engine in neutral on a cold start at the same spot as you take your foot off the accelerator and the revs go down. I've filmed a short video last night of the sounds as best as I could. The engine noise is audible once the window is down on the recording, although in real life you can hear it inside the vehicle with the windows up. The rev sound is there too. You might have to turn it up to hear the engine rev sound as it's just as it's coming down after revving. It's the same engine knocking getting louder and then at the very bottom end of the rev it's like an rrrrrr sound. The car is a 2009/59 plate Ford Fiesta Zetec S with just over 50,000 miles on the clock. Recently serviced and has had replacement air and oil filters, replacement oil and new spark plugs within the last 250 miles. The guys that did the service listened to it and couldn't hear anything off, but I KNOW it's not right. I also took one on a drive where I forced the noises to happen but he said he couldn't hear it. I've had the car 18 months and it didn't sound like this when I got it. Admittedly I do drive fast but don't usually take the vehicle to breaking point but I fear that my driving style might have caused this. :( Link to video is: http://youtu.be/X3dBOb-PUPc
