Frequently asked questions
Q. I have a Ford Fiesta 1.4 TDCi with a ticking noise coming from my engine especially when cold but it gets less as it warms up. Further there are terrible fumes in the car if the heater blower is switched on and I am not moving. I have an idea it could be an injector seal or seals failing (it’s done around 111,000 kilometres). Is this a difficult job to do myself? Are there any pitfalls I should avoid?
A. It sounds like the exhaust manifold is cracked or damaged to me. It would either need welding or replacing.
