Hi :) Usually in Fords this happens because they are not adjustable and have to be replaced. The lifters sit on the lobs of the cam shaft and have a flat end that gets indented from the round shape of the lob hitting it as it get more play in it the louder the sound gets so since the are not adjustable they have to be replaced. You can try thicker oil or put a cup full of Transmission fluid in the motor oil it will loosen the lifters and quiet them down.

My 2006 Ford Fusion has issues. When driving, if you take your foot off the accelerator, it jerks so bad and slows down...I mean JERKS... as it slows down, then when you want to accelerate again, it sticks...


Most likely issue is your accelerator position sensor. Recommed you remove it and test with an ohmmeter. I don't have the pinout, but there are only four pins. Find the two pins that have a change in resistance when the arm is rotated. The resistance should change smoothly as you rotate the arm. If it jumps around, replace it. Cost is about $75.

I have had a small tapping noise in the engine for a while. yesterday a loud bang now its a very loud putting/banging noise. still runs but something very wrong. you can smell the odor of gasoline coming...


It sounds like you had either mild lifter lash or a plug wasn't gapped properly at first which has now gotten even worse. The gas smell that you have may be caused by a plug not firing due to misgap or a lifter that isn't functioning due to breakage. I recommend parking your vehicle as soon as possible. Have it towed to a dealer or trusted repair shop if at all possible. More use of the vehicle may cause irrepairable/ more costly damage.

Clacking/Flapping sound coming from engine compartment


Best thing to do is take it in to see if the oil pump is working properly. A oil pump not pumping properly will lead to what people call a "dry valve tap". The moving parts in the engine will make noise when there is no lubrication happening. Especially the parts that are moving the valves. That why they call it " dry valve tap".
Has the engine light stayed on at all?
