I can almost guarentee 100% certainty that it is the bearings from one of your front tires. In fact I can say it is for sure if, when you're driving, you turn your wheels and it gets louder or quieter it's your bearings that are gone.

We can not give you any kind of reasonable diagnosis without alot more information. Give us a some adjectives; banging, tapping, etc. Better yet, go to the auto parts store and get a machanics stethoscope. Put the metal rod of the scope on various locations on the engine, and tell us where the noise comes from. Since you say it is a loud noise, concentrate on the lower part of the motor. I am thinking a connecting rod.

2005 ford focus makes a roaring noise while in park when you press on the gas. Sounds like it's come from the back of motor where exhaust connects to motor. ????


My friend's 2004 Focus was doing the same thing - especially loud when accelerating from a stop. When it reached stable speed, it got much quieter. We thought it was exhaust also, but couldn't find any cracks, gaps, or obvious leaks. We brought it to a garage, and they found a bad motor mount. When the engine was under load, it would torque (against either the frame or firewall) and make the loud, irritating noise. A new engine mount, and it sounds almost new again.

Why is my car overheating?


Open the hood and find out where that loud sound is coming from first. Make sure the fan is not bent or blades damaged.

2002 ford focus 2.0l sohc blowing white smoke and loud noise like a knocking from the bottom of the engine or/and rough idle,what could cause these


If a vehicle is smoking then it is obviously burning oil, loud noises from bottom of engine usually indicate main bearing failure, but that wouldn't usually make smoke are you sure it is from bottom of engine. Sounds more likely to me that you have either valve or piston problems, a valve seal gone would result in smoke as oil leaking into Cylinder chamber would burn producing smoke. Piston ring failure would also produce smoke and most likely a significant loss of power with possible noises resulting from broken pieces of ring in the cylinder impacting on head, this may have also unseated a valve causing the smoke. To check ring or valve failure you need to do a compression test, to check for bearing failure I am afraid it will require inspection either by removing sump pan ( oil pan) and removing bearing covers to check for damage.Whatever the cause it sounds as if it may be quite expensive and age and condition of vehicle should be taken into account, after all with the cheap cars on ebay it may be more cost effective to cut your losses and replace the vehicle.

Hello I have a Ford Focus 02 ghia 1.6 when driving it makes a loud ticking noise that has got worse in the last few days. I checked the oil a month ago when it started and it was V.Low I topped it up but...


The ticking noise, if related to your engine would get faster and slower "with" your engines' RPM. If it isn't matching the engine then I would be wary of a possible wheel bearing getting ready to take you for the U-Turn of your life! Try pulling (very hard) on the top of the tire closest to that area to see if you can feel looseness or "play" ...cuz there shouldn't be any "play" or noises at all.

2002 merc cougar 2.5 liter has loud whistling


Sounds like a vacuume leak, use some carb cleaner in a spray can and gently spray the engine. When you find the leak the engine will stumble, check in that area for the leak.
