I think the EGR is at fault 😂

#425752 Nice And Quiet Again

Posted by TerrieA on 10 June 2018 - 08:56 PM

I don't suppose anyone will read this(!), but I'm pleased to announce that, after replacing the clutch, DMF, aux belt and pulleys, replacing the decomposing brake rod boots and finally solving the curious rattle from the rear of the car (wheelbrace rattling on the floor in the boot!), my ST TDCI is now smooth and quiet again! I hadn't realised quite how much those annoying noises had spoiled the driving experience. The rotting brake boot was interesting in that (if you search for ST56's post on fixing it) there was no evidence of the bigger of the two rubber parts having ever been fitted from new. More Ford cost-cutting I guess.
The only other thing which may become a problem is that there's now a high-pitched whistle when it's on full boost, which has only developed after putting turbo cleaner through it. No idea what that's about. Apart from that, it's a joy to drive again, which can't be bad for a twelve year old car.
