Question about 2003 Ford Focus

Open Question

2003 ford focus, 2.0l spi engine, making an odd ticking noise - not an exhaust leak at the manifold,looks like the gears for the timing are walking out, is there a bolt in there that holds that into place that could have broken? vehicle still runs and drives, but I don't want to take any chances

SOURCE: ticking noise in engine and blue smoke in exhaust

the tapping are the lifts tapping because there is no oil getting to the top of the motor. the blue smoke is the oil burning.could be the head gasket is going bad or the piston rings are done in.

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Escort ZX2 2.0L engine knock and no power.

Get yourself a compression tester and remove all spark plugs and proceed to check the compression for this motor the readings should all be above 110 psi, the car may have jumped a tooth on the timing belt and requires a new belt to be installed.

There is a tick noise that comes from a failed exhaust gasket or cracked manifold. You will have to remove the manifold to replace the gasket. To go to all that trouble I would have the manifold machined to ensure that it is straight as they have a tendency to warp from the heat and from incorrect tensioning sequence of the manifold bolts/studs

1983 f150 with 351 windsor. Recent problem of bogging down when climbing moderate hills. Also sounds of ticking noise, lifters or manifolds leak? Any help much appreciated.


A leaking exhaust manifold could make a ticking noise. So could a lifter or valve. The exhaust noise would be louder under load.
If the carb is running too lean, or you have a vac leak, the lean fuel mixture could make the exhaust leak worse, and cause the loss of power.

you may have a vacuum leak or a restriction in the exhaust system check around under the hood to see if you can narrow down the noise. a restriction in the exhaust causes the excess exhaust to push back threw and make a whooshing noise. hope this helps

2001 FORD FOCUS LOAD TICKING NOISE


it very well can be that depending on the severity of the ticking noise, if it sounds like its coming from the top of the engine, place your hand on it only when you first start it up and if you can feel it knocking slightly and if the noise dies away once warmed up id say its your lifter, if its a heavier knocking rather than a ticking and comes from below or bottom end of engine it may be big end bearing, not good. try putting some engine treatment through the engine oil and make sure you run it in as directions state then change the oil and filter and see if that helps :)

Exhaust manifold gaskets


the ticking noise when cold is an exhaust leak.If it is the exhaust manifold gaskets,depending on the vehicle they can be very difficult to replace.in some cases you must remove many other parts even to see the manifolds.make sure when manifolds are off that they are checked for warpage,this is a simple test needing only a straight edge and feeler gague.ask your tech if he can see any broken manifold studs/bolts and if quote covers time for removing broken manifold studs/bolts,because if any are broken,this can take quite some time to extract the broken studs/bolts.
