Check your power steering fluid level. If it is low that is probably what is causing the noise. The pump is running dry. If that is the problem it means you have a leak somewhere. I have had this issue with my Focus for awhile. I just check the fluid often. I don't fix things until I absolutely have to. Check your manual my Focus uses transmission fluid for the power steering system.

That could be a loose belt. Sometimes it is caused by a vacuum leak. It could also be a transmission sound. Check the transmission oil level. That sometimes causes a whining sound.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Hi, I have a

nick,the best way to sort out your car is to get a diagnostic done(a main dealer has the kit,as does kwick fit)that way you can decide if you want to do the job or pay them to do it.(its too expensive for us to buy the computer)ask for a full diagnostic,not just the codes.

Check for vacuum lines going to transmission or any vacuum line under hood. It is possible an animal chewed on the lines or wires. We get a few reports of that at Fixya.

You might also look under the dash by the pedals for a vacuum leak. There are vacuum switches for parking brake release and the neutral start switch.

How to put a timing belt 2000 ford focus


If it's like mine,the ZETEC engine,I'd wholeheartedly recommend letting Ford do it.They only charge 185 dollars labor and will do it right.
In my shop manual,it takes up FOUR pages of instructions on this job for the ZETEC....................that's too much trouble for me.
I took mine to Ford at 130,000 miles and they did a great job.All parts considered,it cost 413.00 dollars because of the kit and belt and new tensioner for the drive belt. don-ohio

Are ford zetec engines more problematic than the LX engines


I have owned both personally, and I really liked both engines. The Zetec definitely has the power to do anything you want, and the LX was very reliable. I actually had a Green Focus LX Sedan, and that got me 186k miles on the same clutch no less before I traded it in, still no issues at trade in time......The Zetec was a hatchback, but I still got 140k on that before I bought a Silverado.....Great motors in my opinion.
