    1.6 tdci engine noise

    well, I wasn’t brave enough so my local indie did it for me. £300 but the noise is gone. He did advise that the cluch is high and the flywheel makes a noise, which I noticed myself but that’s £790 that I don’t have right now. Thank you all for your replies.

    Thank you, that’s really detailed. I’m doing an oil change tomorrow so I’ll assess the situation from there...if I dare or not 🙂

    Labour hours varied from 2.5 to 3.5 and the cost of the kit from £150 to £200. I did see a gates kit on ebay for £95 just one of those things where I’m worried I would wreck the engine. Would a haynes give you a step by step?

    Thank you! I might just drive it for a while until I get more funds and keep an eye on it.

    Thanks. At least you’ve put my mind to rest, I do need to factor in a new cambelt as apparently it’s due one but just lack the funds this month.

    73500. Local garage said that I need to change the cambelt asap as it’s due. All the quotes in the area are about £320 part from clickmechanic that quoted 255 but read some horrible reviews about the work that some mechanics do for them

    1.6 tdci engine noise

    Hi all, I’ve recently came back to fords after a good few years. Used to have a 53 reg mondeo that I got on really well with, I even modified it to give it an auto open boot( fitted a couple of springs on the boot gas struts) i have a 10 reg 1.6 tdci ford focus with a few weird noises coming from around the engine area that don’t sound healthy. The one that I’m more worried about is a belt/ bearing rubbing noise that’s coming from the back of the engine. anyone had this before and know what’s it about? My best guess judging on position is either the water pump or fuel injection pump. We use the car for commuting and want to make sure it’s safe. thank you in advance.
