2003 Ford Focus 78,000 miles...clacking noise

2003 Ford Focus 78,000 miles...for about a week everytime I crank the car up in the morning there is a loud clacking noise..when I rev the motor it gets even louder..almost like when you need oil...My husband checked oil and all fluids. The funny thing is once I run the car so that the temp gauge goes to normal it stops making that noise and idles normal? Any ideas...

    Could the lifters need lubrication? or is that something that is continually making noise?

There is a problem with dirty injectors. Please clean those by putting high octane fuel in your car or putting an octane booster in your car also you may lube your cluch look for a valve itatake under the car for that.

2003 Saturn L200. Car will turn over but will not


I have the same model. Congrats you made it over a 100,000 miles! Most of them failed after as little as 20,000 or around 78,000 miles becaue there was a design flaw in that the timing chain did not get any oil to it. I had the 78,000 mile engine. Mine failed while driving at 65 miles an hour on the expressway. Pretty much wrecked the engine. The problem with putting in a used engine is that no other type of engine will fit in this car and you can count on engine failure again at 20,000; 78,000 or from what you tell me after 100,000 miles. You would be better off investing in a down payment for a Toyota made here in America that gets over 50 miles to the gallon. I used to be an oldsmobile man and then reluctantly switched to Saturn but am fed up with GM completely now and all american car manufactures.

1997 ford expo makes loud clasking noise


If it was your cranshaft making that kind of noise.your motor would have frozen up already.it seems more like a tranny problem than an engine problem. Take it to a good mechanic. It sounds like your tranny is about to go.
