      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Mine was 5w30 semi. It had been driven 15k without a change so semi or full; anything was better. I'd say it stayed sounding like like a vacuum/buzzer for a couple of months, 4000 miles. Did no harm. Just annoying. And only when warm.
  2. Well. It randomly went away. On day it was making its odd noise then it just went. Nothing to note performance wise. Oil was ford spec. Who knows? Car died in many other ways anyway. On the Mondeo train now.
  3. Thanks for the info. Did they replace the filter again? I've read online some oil filters can vibrate and make noise. It is a random problem. I may drain the oil and refill it to see what happens.
  4. For me: No noise before oil change. Now a whining noise starts around 1800-2000 revs and carries on unless the revs drop again either by changing up or stopping. It whines on overrun as well. It only does this once warm. The first 5 miles or so are silent. The whine doesn't get more high pitch as you rev more. turbo? No split hoses. Started only when I changed the oil (ford spec, correct filter, correct volume)
  5. I've the same problem. Picked up a 1.8 tdci. Drove it for a few hundred miles without issue. Changed its oil. Now after five/ten mins it whines as it goes up the rev range. I put the correct oil in. Changed filter. Car drives fine. Any idea?
