EA oil usage, hard starting, ticking noise
Guys, if anyone has any answers to these queries it would be appreciated. Cheers!
"To Jack Travis
About a year ago I brought an ea2 fairmont ghia, its in great condition inside and out. But recently a few mechanical problems have become apparant. Firstly it burns a litre of oil every 2000kms, no leaks at all though. Second it is hard starting, except when its dead cold or just been running. Also there is a sharp ticking noise occuring only when the the throttle is applied slightly. Have you heard of this before or know what is causing this?
Other than that is the best car I ve ever owned. Great site, we need one in NZ
