Hi All,

Im new to this but wondered if any pro's out there could possibly help me. Ive just bought a ford mondeo zetec 2 litre petrol 2002 reg car. Its a great car that passed its MOT in November with no advisories.

Couple of things ive noticed, when the car is running on idle there is a "tapping/clunking, rattling noise coming from near the cam belt area. It doesn't sound too bad but I know anything making noise like that in an engine isn't good!!! I cant hear it once the car is moving???? Also, there is a squeaking noise coming from the right rear side of the car? I am going to take it to the ford garage in the next week or so but just wondered if anyone could advise me what they could be as to prepare myself for the repair bill!!!! Thanks in advance. ;)
