Hi im going out of mind here, my 55 plate focus tdci has developed a loud rattling noise when i rev the engine, the red oil check light has came on but has gone off, and there is nO power at all, downhill its ok but uphill i struggle to keep it 40 on the motorway! It happened once before but by the time i got it to a garage it was normal again and i was diagnosed with paranoia. But now it has happened again and its been few days, the last time no faults came up on computer, has anyone got any ideas on what it could be???

I am having the same problem with mine same car same year but no oil light or loss of power but it is burning oil. Did you find out what it was mine is currently in the garage waiting to hear. I would appreciate it if you could let me know what it was and was it costly? Thanks

Silly question... Have you checked the oil level? when was the car last serviced, and the oil filter last replaced?


For that matter, when was the oil last replaced?
