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: will a transmission for a 2002 ford focus fit a 2004 ford focus(both are sedans)?

If the engines are the same they will fit, the splitport and the zetec use different trans.

Hi mate.

This sounds like a fuel problem.

Some one may have have filled up with petrol. If so you will have to drain the feul tank and change your feul filter.

If only diesel has been put into the tank then carry on as follows until you solve the problem.

Change your fuel filter and air cleaner for a start.

Check your timing.

If you still have the problem, then have your injectors cleaned and reset.

If the problem is still there then you will have to have the fuel pump reconditioned.

You can also check your leak off pipes between the injectors to see if they are in good condition.

I trust this will help you.

2005 ford focus makes a roaring noise while in park when you press on the gas. Sounds like it's come from the back of motor where exhaust connects to motor. ????


My friend's 2004 Focus was doing the same thing - especially loud when accelerating from a stop. When it reached stable speed, it got much quieter. We thought it was exhaust also, but couldn't find any cracks, gaps, or obvious leaks. We brought it to a garage, and they found a bad motor mount. When the engine was under load, it would torque (against either the frame or firewall) and make the loud, irritating noise. A new engine mount, and it sounds almost new again.

I have a 2004 ford excursion with 233,000 miles it makes a load humming noise when it idles but when you give it gas it stops. Sounds almost like air leak some where did replace the ERG valve recent.


There is a rubber vacuum elbow behind the intake plenum of the engine. After awhile, the rubber vacuum boot tends to collapse on itself (cavitates) and makes weird funny noises at idle when engine vacuum is the greatest. But you won't hear it when yo begin to accelerate. Common problem with these vacuum hoses. Verify that the hose is the problem and the dealership carries plenty of these replacements.

Front end noise


A suspension part is worn out - lift the front of the car and check the bushings (most likely), the pivots and the ball bearings.

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]

Strange idle, A/C click, stumble (7 second intervals)


That is indeed your A/C compressor kicking on and off. Your a/c is driven off of the engines crankshaft and uses power from your engine to run the system.

It's possible that you have a slightly loose belt that causes the engine to hesitate a bit when the compressor turns on and off.
