Re: Cold engine lifter noise

They reckon the first of any new model has the most problems, you would think something as obvious as this would be fixed though. Maybe FORD just sit back to wait and see how many complaints they get before biting the bullet and fixing it permanently. Mines going in next week.

Re: Cold engine lifter noise

I had it in to get this looked at and they replaced the oil filter, aparenlty soem fo the return valves are stuffed, as a first stop, but they admitted the repalcement of the tensioners is a possiblitliy, but last resort, and a wait for parts of about 4 weeks..

Hmmmmm me thinks I smell a rat!!

Needless to say it didnt fix it... nice new filter, and they toped up the oil. now that suprised me...I have hope

Even though the dealer knew what the problem was i had to book it in first let them look at it ,then contact FMCO,then wait for ok and parts and then wait for loan car to be available,all up it was prolly 6 weeks and the rattle was from new,12 months i put up with it,dont stress mate its all good
Try dealers that are independent of FMCo if your not happy
