Ford Focus SVT Problemsunknown noise
im hearing a whinning noise from somewhere in my engine bay towards the left if you are looking straight at the engine. I have no idea what it is and its not causing my car to act any differently but it worries me. I drive a 6 speed manual and the noise seems to be loudest when accelerating in 1st and 2nd gear. Once I get any higher then that the noise calms down a lot.
The 2002 Focus SVT used unreinforced rear trailing arms; this was changed for the 2003 model year. The trailing arms on the 2002 can break where the anti-roll bar is attached. Results are catastrophic.
4th leaking housing since new. Plastic cracks or oring fails
