Loud Ticking Sound From Engine.....


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

About 3 weeks ago I got myself a 59 Ford Focus Zetec. Ever since I've had it, it has made an unusual 'ticking' or 'clicking' sound whenever the engine is started from cold. The ticking lasts for around 2-3 minutes and then just goes away. It appears to be coming from the drivers side of the engine bay and gets quicker as the revs of the engine goes up and slows down as the revs decrease. Is it some kind of valve sticking? I figured it had something to do with the really cold weather so assumed it would stop, however, it is still persistent even now. Any advice and pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much!
