Question about 1996 Ford Contour

1 Answer

My brother is having a problem with his ef falcon sedan, the muffler makes a strange loud sound on starting and turning off the car, you can hear it also when you are driving but not as loud. It is coming from the middle part of the muffler and sounds like there are tin cans rattling inside it. What could this be it is getting worse.

Could be a loose exhaust clamp, rusted muffler, bent exhaust system allowing it to clang into the underside of the car

    No it is defineatly coming from inside the exhaust, it isnt rusty or loose and is only 12 months old. Thinking it may be a sensor not working as I have just changed a few on my commodore which made the car run smooth again after 6 weeks of it running like ****.

Micra K13 Loud Noise at Higher Speeds


I've just bought a K13 Nissan Micra and it doesn't sound quite right. The noise I hear also seems to be coming from the back but it sounds like when you chop down a gear in a manual going down a hill and the engine revvs, well this is the noise I get in the automatic speeding up and slowing down, even just cruising at a steady speed. Any ideas people? Apart from this noise I love this car.

What type radiator fan do you have? Fixed cconstant , viscous variable speed or electric?
Does it run cooler at highway speeds above 35 mph?
What is the pressure range on the radiator cap?
Is the coolant mixed at approx. 60/40?
Is the condensor and radiator clean and able to pass enough air?
Is the fan shroud on?
Genuine concerns, let me know, good luck

EF & EL are 1,5,3,6,2,4
EF has a coil pack under the inlet manifold the EL has a distributor
EF uses a waste spark system so 2 plugs are fired at the same time eg 1 & 6 - 2 & 5 - 3 & 4
