I am getting a weird ticking sound from the engine. Not sure what it is but it's concerning.
Sway bar end links were shot and replaced. Took about 20 mins each.
Passenger inner tie rod replaced. Took about an hour because I had to make the tool to loosen the old one.
Someone needs to make an aftermarket valve cover for this 2.0 Duratec. Mine is cracked around the spark plug holes. Cannot find a new one anywhere. I haven't tried the dealer yet though.
Massive Speed System makes an aftermarket valve cover.
Do you also have a CEL to go along with the ticking?
