Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.
When it gets noisy does the check engine light come on?
Why did you change that phasers?
It sounds like a bad phaser. Do you have a scan tool with live data?
No problem. The site automatically offers a phone call. Just decline it.
I dont think so. I think its a problem with the phaser. What are the phasers doing when it starts running bad?
So youre telling me that a base engine mechanical problem would wait a few KM to appear?
Mechanical problems as a rule do not tend to come and go. Electrical problems do.
Again that points to an electrical issue but you are telling me its a mechanical issue.
The noise is mechanical but the symptoms point to the cause being electrical.
Check the readings on the phasers when its running bad.
Let me know what they are showing and we can move on.
