Hello I have a Ford Focus 02 ghia 1.6 when driving it makes a loud ticking noise that has got worse in the last few days. I checked the oil a month ago when it started and it was V.Low I topped it up but...


The ticking noise, if related to your engine would get faster and slower "with" your engines' RPM. If it isn't matching the engine then I would be wary of a possible wheel bearing getting ready to take you for the U-Turn of your life! Try pulling (very hard) on the top of the tire closest to that area to see if you can feel looseness or "play" ...cuz there shouldn't be any "play" or noises at all.

There is a rattle in the top right on the drivers door I have had the panel off three times and cannot see where the rattle comes from it is a 2006 2.0 focus ghia


one surefire way to locate a rattle is for a mate to place a stethoscope(long handle screwdriver placed to their ear) whilst you are driving to replicate the noise.....sometimes comes from far away from where you think it is......(trying to dignose a rattle from afar is very much like describing flavours......)

I HAVE A 2001 AZTEK AND WHEN ON AN UPHILL INCLINE STOPPED, YOU MUST KEEP FOOT ON BRAKE OR VEHICLE WILL ROLL BACKWARDS


This is normal, depending on the depth of the hill. This is frequent with standard/manual cars on uphills, they can roll back, but with automatic vehicles they usually have a small amount of throttle, (you'll notice this when putting your vehicle from park into drive with your foot off the break, it'll start slowly moving forward)
Now on the hill, if it's a steep incline your car will move backwards, it all depends on how high your throttle (the car itself) is, and the incline depth of the hill.
