Ford Focus ST Mk2 whirring noise - help please!!

11 posts in this topic

Hi all!

My car is making a noise similar to this one : 

In the comments they are saying that manifold screws were lose.  Does anyone know where to locate these and is it something that can be easily be done yourself?  Any pictures/diagrams etc would be great.

Thanks

A bit more information, The noise only stays for like less than a minute after starting the engine.

Would Kwik fit know where to look?

Thanks

So I had the breakdown guy take a look, he reckons its the cam variator as the oil is drained out the engine when the cars off and when it starts up it takes a while for the cylinder head to fill up with oil at which point the noise also stops/lessens.

I can't find much online about this.  Any help please?

Thanks

this is correct

I have the same engine by the sound of it it is a common problem  on  the 225 engine it probably is the oil filter diafram in the oil filter assy. .Unfortunataly you will need to replace the whole oil filter assy. to the new modified type that is made to stop this fault  .I think its easy to change three bolts I think After you take out the air filter assy. that is in the way. And yes it makes that exact same whistling  noise when it goes. Look on Ebay there at loads there.

It is not that. I had that issue a while ago and already had it replaced.
