How do you know if it is a piston My 2002 Ford Focus starts but has a very loud noise afraid to drive it
My focus was in pretty good shape...then when into store..came out ..it started but had a very loud noise...was afraid to drive it...how do you know if it a piston
Well since we can't hear what you're hearing over the internet, I would have it towed to a REPUTABLE mechanic. Have him/her listen to it and go from there.
Is it smoking? Rattling? Shaking? It's unlikely a piston, more likely it's a timing issue.
