Hello,

Just a quick one about my 2009 Mk2.5 Focus (1.6 115bhp Petrol).

When stationary and the engine is at idle, the engine seems to make a tappy noise. Sounds like a quiet diesel engine, quite hard to explain.

Sounds quite like my 1.2 litre Fiesta to be honest! Anyone else notice this on a similar engine?

I probably sound mad...

Have something to contribute?
