XR6 problem for all BAs?
ive noticed a lot of people posting about a mystery rattle in their cars - well heres my experience...
came out of work and noticed a loud tapping noise coming from engine. Pulled over popped the hood and listened - very loud tapping noise from left side of engine - sounded like tappett noise (thought either no oil or a thrown valve). Not wanting to take any chances i drove straight to Ford in Penrith and got a mechanic to check it out.
Verdict - the noise is a rattling PURGE CONTROL VALVE - and he has ordered a new purge control solenoid - he also said three other BAs have been in this week to fix this problem.
Hope this helps anyone with this noise!
ps wtf does a purge control valve do?
