Could be either a bearing, or a brake pad in need of replacement. Are the disks in good health?

 

Also could be something silly like a bushing needs replacing...

If the breaks are new check the pad's are still correctly attached and they haven't come loose. Also check there is no grit or debris between the pads and disk. Bearing's can begin to make noise before they start to show other signs of failure so i wouldn't rule that out ether. 

 

Does the noise stop at 30mph?

I would also make sure that when you installed the pads that they have had copper grease applied to them. The vibrations they can get by driving can cause noises such as these.

Surprised nobody has mentioned water leaking into spark plugs on the 1.6 & 1.4 petrol engines ! judging by other threads on here it appears to be very common, I've just had this issue on my own 55 plate Zetec  :-(

Hi there guys, i was looking for some advice i have recently developed a flat spot on my throttle. At around 2000 revs the car start to stutter, the engine light came on with engine system fault and limited speed setting.

managed to get it home and got the diagnostic machine on it and it came up with the code P2135 something to do with the throttle switch. It was able to drive a short distance today but still with the flat spot but then the engine system fault came on and limited the speed cut out, but then i got it restarted and nursed it back. 

 

Any ideas to me its sounding expensive.

The throttle (inc. potentiometer) is not hard to change, just fiddly! there's loads on ebay, inc brand new ones. I got one for £30.00

I bought this

 

ebay item 190918422012

 

basically just remove driver's side lower dash, remove mounting screws and  electrical connectors then swap over.

I have an 06 1.6ltr Duratec TiVCt no problems until now........I have this sound like someone blowing a French horn under the bonnet when applying the throttle and it is really worrying. me.  If anyone has any ideas as to what this could be and could give me some idea of how much this may cost to repair, would be really appreciated.

 

PS sorry new here so not sure this is the right topic to post this too.
