Report Need help. Ticking/clicking sound from engine compartment. Ford focus 1,6 in Repairs & Maintenance Posted February 12, 2014 The same day as i was planning to drive my car to the workshop the sound disappeared. I do have an issue with the oil thou. It seems to be burning oil and i constantly have to pay attention to this. (ca. 1liter pr. 1000Km) Always park in the same spot and can't see any signs of a propper leak. The spark plugs are relatively new. Prob about 5000km. Something funky is going on thou. When the engine is running on a low "speed" and i push the throttle hard the engine stalls/jumps a couple of times. Last time I changed the spark plugs this problem went away. But it came back just after 2000KM on new spark plugs. Anyone? Thanks for any good advice!
