Re: TDCI noise when starting..Please help
To the drastic move this morning the start up the Focus, just to see if anything happened.
Nothing, just normal tickover, even blipping the throttle, normal service.
Left it running whilst did a couple of other jobs then after about 15 minutes, the dreaded 'knock/bang' arrived again but not constant.
No movement of the engine in whilst ticking over.
But when the engine is killed, there are a number of bangs, almost like the exhaust hitting the underside of the car on several occasions.
Oh well, I'll talk to someone tomorrow who may know. I daren't drive it unless I am absolutley confident that all will be OK.
