Good morning all,

I am having some serious issues right now with my focus. Something in my engine is ticking at idle and driving. It gets worse and louder. I am taking off my fswerks exhaust tonight and will be selling it too incase anyone is interested but anyways I'm going to the dealer to drop it off tomorrow and pick up my loaner. I originally thought it was a valve tapping or a bent valve but now i think it could be a spun rod bearing. Possibly a cam bearing. The oil is fine and has only been serviced by Ford. The ticking gets louder as a accelerate and i dont know what it could be. I'd appreciate any input. Has anyone else had this issue?

Hi Vuj311,

I can assist by getting your case into the hands of your regional customer service manager. To get started, send me a PM with your VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name. I'll do the rest!
