Wierd Noise, Where From?

08 August 2010 - 07:05 PM

Hi guys, my dads 1.4 02 focus lx has aquired a wierd noise. Whilst driving, when you get to 4k revs in all gears you hear a high whine/rumble which sounds like a rev limiter, you can also feel a slight vibration. Up til 4k its fine, nice and smooth. With the car standing still, take the revs upto 4k and over, and theres no whine/rumble at all....any ideas as to what it could be? My guess is a bearing, but which bearing, wheel, gearbox etc....?

found a local garage which had just had a R reg red escort GTI in. Went to look at it he wanted 1200 for it, got him down to 1100. It has 25000 (must be 125000) on clock, mot til october. Body work is mint, totally standard everything, 2 owners from new. I can see welding been done on underneath sill area, engine no signs of leaks. When i rev it the revs drop down low then come back up to idle, is that idle control valve needs cleaning? Theres a little ticking/ratteling noise now and again which he said is the cat, does that sound common? He said because its a R reg they aint needed for mot's, is that correct? Its local so no traveling needed to buy one now, which i was going to have to do to get one. What you guys think?

Which Multispoke?

Which 17" multispoke wheels look like OZ super turismo wil fit Y reg focus? Been looking for a nice set of multispoke but cannot get away from OZ turismo...but they are to expensive. Anyone know of another brand that do multispoke like the OZ? Team dynamics do the monza, but i want the spokes completely straight/flat, team dynamics sort of bend in at the end of the spokes..just me being fussy, but its what I am after....
