2011 ford focus 1.8 clicking noise when start engine


Could be several problems - check the battery terminals to make sure they are clean. Next check the battery to see if it is fully charged. If both those items checked are OK then the next step is to check the starter.

Now the starter has a selenoid which engages and provides power to the starter motor when you turn the key to the start position.

If you only get a clicking noise then it could be the selenoid valve itself or the starter motor.. Some fords have the selenoid mounted on the firewall others are mounted on the starter motor itself.

So what you need to do next is bypass the selenoid valve and provide power directly to the starter - if the starter turns the engine over then the selenoid valve is the problem. If the starter motor doesn't turn the engine over then it's the starter motor and a replacement is necessary.

Hope this info helps.

Check engine light and car runs very rough


Sounds like you need a new ERG valve and/or ERG sensor.
It supplys oxygen to balance the amount of the gasoline and oxygen your engine recieves if the balance is off it can make a car do what yours is doing
.If you can drive your car over to a auto parts store in your area and they should have a code reader to test your car for free.

What are the symptoms of a bad erg valve and where is it located on a 1999 dodge duranlgo


it is located at the rear of the engine behind the intake, the most common symptom on this is just a rough idle or in most cases a check engine light that stays on, no matter what is wrong with the valve it will set a fault code and turn the check engine light on, so unless the light is on the problem is not the EGR

Missing some was running great new plugs,cap etc. Maybe air leak? or defective ERG valve??


Check fluid levels and make sure they are topped off and not dirty.  Check ERG valve, check fuel filter, check air filter, check oxygen sensor, and check spark plug gap.  Also, hook this thing up to look for fault codes.

Check engine light


yes you will have to hook it to a scan tool and erase the dtc or the light will stay on. sometimes you can unhook the battery for 30 sec or pull a fuse or turn the key on and off a couple of times
