      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. Hi all I'm new to this forum, just bought a Fiesta Econetic 1.6 Lovely car but there's a strange ticking noise coming from the engine when cold. Its a rhythmic tick tick tick tick sound, about 3 or 4 per second, and goes away when cold. Any ideas?
  2. 1.8 Tdci Ticking Noise

    hi, I have a 2006 1.8TDCI done about 82k. When the engine reaches its normal temp an annoying ticking noise appears, more noticably inside the car, recently had a cam belt and pulley change. I have tried a flush, oil and filter change with no joy. There is no other running problems, runs sweet. Any body had a similar problem?
  3. Dear fellow KA owners/enthousiasts, I have been driving my Ford KA (first car i owned) for about half a year now. I never had any serious problems with it untill now. Today i wanted to drive to the store but my car wouldn't start. I did not hear the engine or starter turn over, but i did hear a ticking noise, which i believe comes from the relais to the starter engine. I made videos of me starting the engine (both from the drivers seat and under the hood) to maybe help you guys pinpoint the problem. View My Video View My Video All electrical things like radio/windows work so i know the battery is not dead (it's a battery that was installed when i bought the car). I did change the bulb in my left headlight the day before, but afterwards i drove to a friend and back without any problems. Is it possible that a wire was close to being disconnected because of my headlight fix and then disconnected due to vibrations when i was driving? Is this maybe a moisture issue in the distributor/starter (it has been raining the last few days)? We have tried a few things, being: - reconnecting the battery connections. - putting it in second gear and pushing to turn over the starter one turn. This did change the sound a bit when i tried to start it afterwards, but then it almost instantly changed back to the old ticking noise. - pushing the car with the clutch down and letting the clutch come up slowly to try and start it without the starter engine. This didn't work, but we only tried it once since it was just the 2 of us. I have some knowledge of car engines since i study mechanical engineering, but i lack experience in the practical application, so any tips, help or suggestions on what to do would be appreciated very much!! I don't have a multimeter right now, but will be able to get one tomorrow. Sorry for any spelling/grammar mistakes, i'm not a native English speaker ;) Looking forward to a response and thanks in advance!
  4. Need some expert help to locate an error, hope someone can give me some good hints. My ford has a new sound in the engine compartment. Its best described as a ticking/clicking sound which seem to be in more or less in sync with the "speed of the engine". It's quite loud and distinct. I dont think its from the engine it self but likely in connection with the drivebelt. Not sure though. It looks like I have a small wooble on the belt tensioner for the drive belt. is it likely that this is the cause, and in that case how easy/hard is it to fix DIY? Any other obvious things i want to check out? I might also add that it's drinking a descent amount of motoroil.(mileage:100 000) Im afraid it might be something critical. Hopefully it's something I can fix myself. Greatful for all tips and hints! i tried to attach a sound file. Hope it's working. ford.wav
  5. Hi I have a MK2 2005 Focus TDCI LX. Recently it has started to make a clicking/ticking noise while the engine is running. It usually happens at around 1200 to 1800 RPM, above or below this it does not seem to make the noise. The mileage on the car is 123k and I have serviced it regularly every 6k miles since I bought the car in 2011 when it had 88k miles on it. At every service I have replaced the air, oil and fuel filter. With the most recent service I bought 10w40 semi synthetic oil. I have a feeling that this oil is the problem, or that the timing belt is about to give up the ghost soon. Thanks in advance for your help.
