Hi all my mk1 focus has made a strange noise since i bought it (1 week ago) it's done 123k miles with no history.. Happens with turning on and off. The garage thought it was the alternator tensioner and belt so replaced all that FOC. Still an issue they think its the waterpump. Has anyone come across this before?? Its 1.8 tdci 54 plate.

 

I've done all the filters and I'm doing Oil/Glow plugs/Cambelt/Waterpump next week anyway but wanted to check if the Waterpump could cause this?

 

Many thanks josh. - Vid below.

Engine mounts?

 

I didn't think of that. Would it not be making a horrible racket when running if that were the case though? Or is it because it moves/vibrates so much on turning on/off that it's doing it?

 

Thanks.

Yeah obviously the engine vibrates quite a bit when turning on and off, thats what made me think of that, could be the exhaust rubbing against something too

Did they change the auxilary belt aswell, Could be the aux belt tensioner causing aux belt to squeak?

You could have a issue with the ac. Might be seized or the pulley.
