What gearbox - auto or stick? Have you checked the oil level of the gearbox? Have you replaced it lately - it should be replaced every 2 years for the best reliability.

2002 ford focus 2.0l sohc blowing white smoke and loud noise like a knocking from the bottom of the engine or/and rough idle,what could cause these

If a vehicle is smoking then it is obviously burning oil, loud noises from bottom of engine usually indicate main bearing failure, but that wouldn't usually make smoke are you sure it is from bottom of engine. Sounds more likely to me that you have either valve or piston problems, a valve seal gone would result in smoke as oil leaking into Cylinder chamber would burn producing smoke. Piston ring failure would also produce smoke and most likely a significant loss of power with possible noises resulting from broken pieces of ring in the cylinder impacting on head, this may have also unseated a valve causing the smoke. To check ring or valve failure you need to do a compression test, to check for bearing failure I am afraid it will require inspection either by removing sump pan ( oil pan) and removing bearing covers to check for damage.Whatever the cause it sounds as if it may be quite expensive and age and condition of vehicle should be taken into account, after all with the cheap cars on ebay it may be more cost effective to cut your losses and replace the vehicle.

Rumbling noise under neath car

I am at a loss knowing what gear box your referring to and if the rumbling noise began before or after changing the box. There are many things that could simply be loose underneath a vehicle. A wheel bearing can definitely make a rumbling noise. Sure you changed the right one. Can be hard to tell which one sometimes. Sorry I couldn't help more than I did.

I was driving on the highway and the engine lost power, got over to the side of the road and everything else was still on such as the radio, and other items. After a minute or so, I lost power completely....

Sounds like the BCM (body control module) has a loss of communication with the engine controller. You will need to have it scanned with a proper scan tool to retrive the fault codes that are stored in the memory...I hope this helps.

Last night after coming off the interstate i made a sort of hard left then went to accellerate. Thats when i noticed a dramatic loss of initial power and loud engine noise. The engine noise persisted... have spun a rod bearing the engine nose is the piston hitting the bottom of the cylinder head, because the rod bearing has spun and have stacked on top of each other, sounds like you are going to need an engine, but the good news is there a lot of used ones out there, check with your local salvage yard.

Ok, here's a doosie for ya, I have a 91 civic, 5 speed manual with 185k miles on it. A few weeks ago it started making an awful noise coming from the area of the bell housing. It sounds like metal...

I think your gear box will have to come out, because I believe what you're hearing, is a damaged bearing....I can't recall if your car uses a pilot bearing, but I believe it does and that one would be a suspect.
Another of the bearing's that could cause the problem, is the clutch release bearing. If that has been over adjusted and is in constant contact with the pressure plate (clutch cover), it will give the symptoms you talk about.
As the box has been removed during the past, have you checked the gear box oil level?
If it's dry or the oil level very low, the gearbox input shaft bearing could be damaged.
I do not believe the noise has anything to do with the starter motor!
As the noise is obvious during idling, start the engine and while it's idling....With a very long screw driver, pin point the noise in this way.....Take off anything dangling from around your neck and don't wear loose clothing....Give your neighbors a treat, and if necessary.... remove anything that can get caught anywhere....
Take the long screw driver and place the business end in firm contact with the engine block behind the front of the bell housing, close to the starter motor and press your ear to the handle....You'll hear the noise....Now change the place to listen on top of the bell housing.....and then to the gear box side of the bell housing....If the noise is loudest in the front, then suspect the pilot bearing....Middle or top,...suspect the thrust bearing....With this one have someone press and release the clutch pedal while you listen for any changes in frequency ....Gear box side input bearing....
Once we know more about the problem, if you would like to tackle it yourself let me know and we'll go on from there....
Now put your shirt back on and wave to all your new friends....Best regards Johngee10

Total loss of power steering on Ford EL futura.

The first thing to do is, isolate the problem. Crack the
the pressure line loose at the back of the power steering pump. If you can get at it, if not, jack it up put a stand under it and try to loosen it from the bottom.Or you can loosen the pressure line into the
rack.(or steering box as I don't know the year of the car) Snug up the line, and put on safty goggles.
Have somone get behind the wheel. Make sure the
ps fluid is full. Start the car and slowly loosen the line
a bit so the fluid shoots out have your helper turn
slightly to the right and back to center, then slightly
left and back to center. Each time the wheel is turned
the pressure should increase, if that happens, the
problem is in the rack.(or box) But if you have weak
pressure from the pump, the pump is bad.
Hope this helps. G,Day

89 Ranger 2.9L 150k mi. Lifter noise, power lose, oil pres zero

the lifter noise might have been a bearing going bad or a piston ring. if you lost power you probably lost compression on one cylinder. Try checking your compression with a compression tester screwed into your spark plug socket. here is a site with a procedure.
