Hey, is someone out there going to advise me? Following my coil going,
then my speedo, my fuel guage is now stuck on zero (that has happened
before)! Anyway that's an aside for now: no-one's yet made any suggestion
about my mystery noise, so here is the post again:
"I have a Ford Focus zetec estate 1596cc (1999, 130 000 miles). It makes
a noise - rattly sort of noise(sounds like front offside) - when on the
road. You notice it when coasting (foot off accelerator) but it goes when
clutch pedal is depressed. Also, it slows right down with road speed as
you come to a halt.
Three garages have been consulted - two of them Ford dealers. They want
to start replacing parts and possibly removing transmission and clutch
just to see if it cures it without finding out the cause for sure first.
Any sugestions? It is bad enough for me to think it needs fixing rather
than just living with it. One other thing: it seemed to develop suddenly
rather than gradually over time."
Can anyone pleaase help?? (Please?)
