My car makes this strange almost ticking sound. Almost sounds like a valve tap. Does anyone else have this noise? Is this common for the '02 SVT's or is there something wrong with my car? Thanks for any help.

It's a Focus sound. My car does it as does every other Focus I've ever heard.
If it becomes really loud, I would take it in, but I'll bet it's the sound we all hear.

I've had the problem before, it's not typical but it happens once in a while. Does your ticking go away when you put the clutch in?

It is the injectors and the tappets. They come together in a harmony that sounds like a valve tap.

Very disconcerting at first. Doesn't sound healthy.

Whatever. Everyone says they have it, so try and put it out of your mind.

My car did the same thing....I was told it's the injectors. Whatever it was, once I switched to AMSOIL synthetic, the ticking sound is gone...??? So, that's why I'm not sure it's the injectors....I think you need to be careful because it could be the injectors but if it's really loud, it's probably something else.
