SOURCE: Loud noise frm engine area

We can not give you any kind of reasonable diagnosis without alot more information. Give us a some adjectives; banging, tapping, etc. Better yet, go to the auto parts store and get a machanics stethoscope. Put the metal rod of the scope on various locations on the engine, and tell us where the noise comes from. Since you say it is a loud noise, concentrate on the lower part of the motor. I am thinking a connecting rod.

SOURCE: 2002 ford Ranger 3.0 v6 (auto) rear end noise when accelerating on curves.

Grab the bed of the truck and vigorously rock the vehicle from side to side. If you hear clunking in the axle, you probably need to check the carrier bearings in the differential. I had the carrier bearings, wheel bearings, and seals replaced in my mother-in-law's 1991 Ranger for $280, and it rides like a new truck. Well, ok, it rides like an 18 year old truck with a new rear end. I provided the wheel bearings and seals to the shop, and they provided the carrier bearing, lube, and labor. While the axles are out, check the surface where the axles ride on the bearings. If they are worn, there are undersized bearing available, but it is usually cheaper and easier to just by new axles.

SOURCE: Ford Focus

Exactly the same problem.

2000-2003 Focus vehicles may exhibit a noise from the right halfshaft support bearing.

Due to the way the driveshaft is designed there is central bearing on the the shaft. On the front drivers side it has the tendency to hum at speeds over 40mph. This is the first sign that is the bearing is going. According to Ford it can be quite common in cars of 50-60k plus. If you don't notice the hum (I didn't really) you will eventually start to get a ticking/crackling noise at speed, which will gradually get worse and take less travel time to get going. Eventually the bearing will just seize, so it is worth getting it sorted.

Unfortunately even private mechanics will have to source the bearing, which isn't cheap, so it will cost around 125-150 quid at the garage to fix. It can be a pretty fiddly job, as the whole driveshaft needs to come out (not easy in high mileage cars due to build up of grime etc), so I wouldn't attempt to replace at home unless experienced.

SOURCE: 2002 Ford F150. Cruise control stopped working.

Did you have the recall done on it ?
recall 05S28. Description: Speed Control Deactivation Switch.

It could be a blow fuse in the recall harness, if you did have it done.

Try the self test, and see what the results are. If you do not get it into self test mode, it could be the fuse in teh recall harness that is blown. The 1st revision of the recall harness was an inline ATM fuse, not sure if the revision 2 was the same. If that fuse is blown, the switch is leaking, and should be checked.

Self-Test Diagnostics

WARNING:
This test is a key on engine off (KOEO) test only that is conducted in park only with emergency brake fully engaged.

1. Enter self-test diagnostics by depressing the speed control OFF switch while turning the ignition key ON, making sure the engine does not start and is not running. The speed control indicator on the instrument panel will flash once to indicate that speed control module entered the diagnostic mode. Five additional flashes at this point indicate a defective speed control servo. Release the OFF switch.

2. Press the remaining switches in this sequence: ON, RESUME, COAST and SET/ACCEL.

If the ON switch is not depressed within five seconds after entering the diagnostics mode, the module times out and the procedure must be started over.

The speed control indicator lamp will flash as each switch is depressed. Press each switch in the sequence immediately after the indicator light goes out for the previous switch.

Note:
There will be a slight delay when the last button is pressed and the lamp flashes.

3. A lamp flash with the last button (SET/ACCEL) indicates that the static test passed. If the lamp does not flash with the last button and there are no additional flashes of the lamp, the switch is defective.

If the lamp does not flash with the last button, and additional flashes occur, follow the chart below for trouble codes:

— 2 flashes - BPP defective, circuit is defective, brake applied, CPP switch or jumper (if equipped).

Ford focus cruise control


Once you have turned your cruise control on accelerate to desired speed press SET button on right hand side of steering wheel before lifting foot from accelerator, then remove foot from accelerator. pushing RESUME button will deactivate cruise control without turning it off. Then when clear of traffic push resume again to activate cruise control. It will automatically resume to previous set speed.

When I get up to about 65-70 mph with my 2004 Lincoln Navigator it makes a humming noise... very annoying.. Can anyone help me with what this is and how I can get it fixed?


Unfortunately, this is a somewhat common problem. Ford has issued several Technical Service Bulletins related to rear end noise. Without an extended warranty, this is something you will have to pay for.
TSB 05-23-3 11/28/05 REAR AXLE NOISE REPAIR FORD: 1997-2005 Expedition, F-150 2002-2005 Explorer LINCOLN: 1998-2005 Navigator 2003-2005 Aviator MERCURY: 2002-2005 Mountaineer
ISSUE:
Some vehicles may exhibit an axle whine or hum during acceleration, deceleration and/or cruise.
ACTION: An axle repair kit has been developed which incorporates most parts required for a comprehensive axle repair. The kit should be used instead of installing a complete axle assembly to repair an axle whine/hum. Replace Ring and Pinion with Axle Kit and Components.

I have a stock '02 RSX-S with 93K miles.I recently started hearing a ticking sound coming from the engine while accelerating at low rpm's in any gear (i can hear it at higher rpm's too, but at that point...


Sounds like an Exhaust Manifold leak on only one cylinder. The Gasket is probably blown out. Check around where manifold is bolted to the engine. Any leaks are usually evident by a black sooty deposit.

Ford Focus 2005 LX TDI 1.8 Estate - gratting/knocking/clunking noise from clutch (?) when accelerating, when engaging clutch at standstill, gonna take a look tomorrow - any ideas what to look for?


Most clutch problems are related to disengagement meaning when you have the pedal depressed. That typical noise is then made by the throwout bearing.
I'm not sure you have identified the source yet since accelerating doesn't have much to do with a clutch that is engaged. A worn clutch reveals itself by slipping; the motor runs faster than it should for the speed of the car and no longer synchronized with with the acceleration.

My 2000 1.6 ford focus hesitates when driving from a standing start


Is this when the engine's cold? check the auto choke

when it's warm -air ingress to inlet manifold - listen for air noise - you will also notice that it will hesitate when you accelerate
also check if servo vacuum is affecting the engine speed - when idling pump brakes if it is this then speed increases
Air intake sensor unit Now you need to get a garage to plug into the ECU [car computer]

Same noise


Just change the compressor it is easier than changing the clutch if you do dont forget to change the reciever dryer and the orfice tube and have a evacuation done on it.

2000 ford focus has started making noise when driving, someone suggested its the turbo... what do you think??


It all depends on when and where the "noise" is occuring. If it is while turning it could be a cv joint going out. If it is while accelerating and decelerating is could be a hub assembly issue.
