There are a lot of steps involved in replacing a crank shaft where a simple mistake can cause problems. The bolts and end caps need to go back in the exact same position and direction facing the front. The crank needs to be stored upright or it can be damaged simply by its own weight while lying down. The bearings need to be the correct size and installed in the proper position lining oil holes up and greased properly. The bolts need to be torqued in the proper sequence and to the correct torque. The Crank then needs to be tapped with a hammer and torqued again.

Sounds like something was missed if your getting a bottom end engine noise now.

My 2001 ford focus is making a clocking noise.


Te first thing to do is to locate the noise source. You can do it with a long screw driver touching the tip on the engine and the holder at your ear. A needle stethoscope can do the job better. The noise might be a overhead cam tick, crank shaft knock, bad bearing or anything else.Hope this will help to narrow the problem.

1997 Dodge Caravan won't start - has a tick tick sound


It sounds like the crank shaft sensor is hitting when you spin it over. It is probably in too far. There is a piece of card board stuck to the end of most of them to set it correctly. If it is not the the magnet will pull it to the metal reluctor. Pull it out and see if the end is rubbing. Then take a piece of card board from the box the sensor came in, put a dab of grease on the end of the sensor eg: magnet and put it back in, when it spins over the card board will be rubbed of. That should give you enough clearence for the magnetic sensor to work and not rub eg: the ticking noise.
