Sounds like something got burned upped. And yea I know how ya feel about the tune issues. I need a new tune but ether way I go I'm going to have to drop some more cash. I'm lucky I have two focus's now so I have one to fall back on. Yeller's been sitting up waiting on a few parts while I drive the SVT around.

And that's a good thing. That sound right there are the valves.

Either they dont have enough oil, or they are off so much, that the valves are just tapping the Pistons.

Yes, the car can run a little while doing that ... I know that first hand.

SVT Focus are considered Interference engines, meaning if the valves just tap that pistons. So if you are off at all, that can be catastrophic and you would need to rebuild the head.

Funny thing is that sounds real close to the noise my Kona started to make when the tensioner got lose. Little arm was bouncing back and forth going tap-tap-tap. Not as bad as the video though.

I dunno if I'll be able to make it to Chris's tonight. Chris I tried calling you but get no answer. My son might have broken his wrist or something, we're debating if we should take him to the ER or not. My wife picked him up out of his highchair by one hand and she must have twisted or something I dunno? I'm so in concerned parent mode right now. I may be out later have to play this by ear.
