Forum Newbee, Mondeo Mk3 Engine Query


Recommended Posts


I have a Mondeo Mk3 Zetec 1.8 (2001) with 131,000 miles on clock, and having a problem.

When I first bought this car, I had all wheel bearings apart from the front passenger side replaced, as I was gettting a bad humming sound.

It sounds a lot better now, and up to 35mph I dont have any issues that I`m aware of, but as I get to 40mph, I get a humming sound that is hard to locate.

When reaching around 50mph, the sound isn`t as obvious.

Holding the clutch in does not affect this sound.

I am also loosing oil and water.

The thermostat was replaced recently.

I don`t seem to be leaving white smoke behind me, and I don`t have pools of oil on my drive.

Can anyone shed any light on this?

Many thanks.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Is it an engine related noise?

Out of shape tyres can produce a humming noise like a worn wheel bearing.

Many thanks for your reply.

Will swopping the wheels front to back help me?
