Ford Fiesta - 06 1.25 Slight rattle engine noise

Hi all,

This is my first post on a motoring forum so forgive any ignorance.

I've recently bought an 06 (56) Fiesta 1.25 style and I have to say I'm very happy with it in general. Its done 20k miles and just had its second service.

What is slightly annoying/worrying me though is the slight rattle I hear from the engine when accelerating hard. I hear it most often when moving up from 50mph-75mph in 4th and 5th, or whenever I really put my foot down.

Now is this just normal engine noise/vibration or does it hint at something else being wrong?

To describe the sound its like a very light rattle, like a nut is shaking or something.

Interestingly I used to get a similar sound from my 1998 (s reg) 1.25 fiesta that had done 92k miles - hence why I am a bit worried about this one.

Would appreciate any advice.

Thanks

Really hard to diagnose without hearing noise , but from what you describe it sounds as if engine might be " pinking " There are various reasons why this happens from over advanced timing / mixture weak / getting too hot/ incorrect fuel etc. etc . You say it has just had the second service ? was it doing this prior to going into w/shop ? if not , return to garage who serviced car .

I've filled up a couple of times with premium fuel and it seems to have done the trick. Thanks for your advice.
