2002 ZTS 75,000 miles making noise? Help!?!
My 2002 focus with 75,000 miles on it has been starting to make a noise when I pull away from a stop sometimes... The noise is almost like a grinding slash sticking noise. It really only happens when I brake and then press the gas again but goes away after about two seconds. The noise also started happening when I release the break and just start rolling at idle speed. Once again, the noise does not happen all the time, but every once in a while. The sound seems to be coming from the front passenger side. I read online that it could be the engine motor mount but I replaced that just a few months ago. Could this be my brakes sticking or would that not cause noise? Any input is appreciated!
