  1. Intermittent engine rattle on idle I've recently noticed an intermittent engine rattle on idle over the last couple of weeks. Never thought to do so earlier but I opened up the bonnet and managed to identify the source. It seems to be above the drive belt on the left side of the engine bay. I've taken a pic. Does anyone know what it is ? There's a visible rattle to this item when it happens however when the engine is off there's no play in it whatsoever. It's s 1,5tdci Thanks in advance
  2. Good evening all, First time poster in need of some assistance. The wife came home this afternoon and got me to look at her 02 Plate Fiesta (1.3l Duratec). She said she could see some steam (not much) coming from under the bonnet. She had just driven 2 miles accross Stafford. After popping the bonnet up I could see a little steam coming out. Upon further inspection I could see a rough bulge on the side of the coolant tank, and then when I peered at the back of the tank I could see a very slight crack where the coolant was coming out (all be it very very slowly). Is it a straightforward case of getting a new coolant tank or is the fact that there was a small amount of steam coming from the radiator be a worry also ? Dare I say head gasket ??? :( Many thanks in advance Richard
