Just been told that one of the spark plugs is shot so this may be the cause of the knocking sound?????? Not too sure about that but wait and see. They are going to replace it and see if it makes a difference so I will update you all later.

 

If the plugs were loose it would be firing properly, it would be on 2 Cylinders and pretty much not go anywhere with lights on and all sorts.

Yeah mattdrx my thoughts exactly but will let them try and see what they say, but I'm not getting fobbed off anymore and want it fixed once and for all. The service guy at reception thought it was a pulley at first so this at be the next thing to look at if they can't solve it. To be honest I will be glad to get shut of the car next year because of the poor driving gears, poor mpg, engine noise, heater problems and tyre wear......and my wife drives like miss daisy too.

Hi all, just a quick up date on how things went at the garage today with the car. The engine noise was down to a shot/ damaged spark plug and coil lead?On the ecoboost there is 3 plugs and each have their own coil lead so the car can still run when one fails but apparently this has caused the engine to create a knocking noise!. They have replaced the coil and plug and all is okay for now and drives quieter and smoother too so fingers xd it fixed. Strange that something so simple as a plug could cause so much Trouble. Hope this helps but will keep you posted if any change.

No they didn't mate?........don't think they had a bag big enough for them parts! Main thing is its going okay for now and regardless of what's been or hasn't been fixed it's running ok.

Quite rare these days.  I have never had a spark plug problem but the last time the HT leads broke down was in the 80s in a Ford Cortina.  It was all over the place and kept cutting out and my dad had to come and rescue me !
