Whining Noise

5 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I have started noticing a whining noise on my Focus 1.6 57 plate and I'm not sure where it is coming from. It only seems to appear at about 2800 rpm in all gears and speeds but if I dip the clutch the noise disappears. Does anyone have an idea of what it may be?

Thanks

:)

Hi chaps,

Thanks for the replies. Is it something to worry about or just live with? I mainly drive at 70 on the motorway so don't hear it much of the time.

a small whine is acceptable and common many fords have it and ford will tell you its to be expected my old vw had it 2 nowt to wotry about unless its very loud
