I am new to the focus life and forum as well. I have a few questions. 1, does zetec make a noise? (maybe a noise similar to a turbo) 2, What is the red-line? (rpms go to 7 but all of the numbers are white) 3, Im pretty sure my exhaust heat shield is half ripped off, is that important?

Thanks in advance,
Bob

1. No, should make normally aspirated, non-turbo noises. There is nothing like v-tech where it will change noise either.
2. around 6800, limited
3. Exhaust shield shouldnt matter, some have removed it all after not being able to stop it from rattling.

The noise you are hearing could be a vacuum leak, intake leak or any other various problems that can happen to an older vehicle.

The belt drive parts can indeed make a turbo like whirring noise, the 3 I have all do it. Normal. It sounds loudest at cold start idle then quietens up some. Combination of everything spinning there I think.

Manual or Auto?

Has the fluid ever been changed?
