The more I tried to gain power by accelerating the more the car seemed to struggle to get up the miles. Mind you, I too had heard that ticking sound, maybe a week ago, for the first time. Once the car is idled, maybe for 30 seconds, the noise stops. My check engine light did not stay on, and I was able to drive on home safely, as if nothing happened, but my boyfriend seems to think it was a case of bad (water in it) gasoline. My car now has 80,000 miles on it, with the bulk coming from interstate driving. I guess I will be going back to the dealership on Monday, seeing as this is my first issue with this car.
Yea i think ford should do a recall... mine cracked at 40,000 miles... i mean come on... but thats the reason i went with headers... now i dont have to worry about it ... i think ford should just upgrade us all to headers!!!lol like ford would even think about that!
