Hi there , good morning to you and sorry for the delayed response

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to assist/ offer you advice you to today

ok what size of engine is fitted to your focus

Is the whistling noise more a drone than a high pitched whistle

Does this only happen in start up or is it when vehicle is idling

Is it there under normal driving

Does the engine run lumpy at idle

Kindest regards ***** *****
