We have a 2000 Focus (140 thousand miles), and when we start it up it
sounds like the fan is going to jump right out of the compartment, the
cat/converter is loose, or maybe the entire motor will explode. Last
night it was about 18F, and it took about 10 miles of driving to get it
to quiet down.
I'm going to open the hood, and feel the various intake areas today,
but what could this be? Should I briefly put my foot on the exhaust
We were told it has a sloooow transmission fluid leak, and the fluid
has never been drained, etc. It seems to be at "full" when I check...
any help greatly appreciated :+)paul
