Really Loud Ticking Noise In Engine????

Recommended Posts

Hi all

My focus has developed a really loud clicking/ticking noise in the engine. It gets louder if you accelerate but never goes away even on tick over.

had something changed that's near front of the engine that's connected to the auxiliary belt (don't ask me what its call cos i don't know lol )

anyway that didn't work.

so the garage have suggested it may be the air con clutch?? However the noise stays regardless of whether the air con is on or off.

Or it could be some other clutch drive connected to the auxiliary belt.

Has anyone else had this problem before??

Thank you :) x

If its the air con pump you will be able to see it working in and out more like a clip clap sound had it on my 2.0l the other day try spraying wd40 in the drive belt area to see if it disappears

it could be your oil needs changing or a noisy tappet, sticky valve, does the car run bad?
