Ok so here goes on Saturday I'm returning home and accelerate down dual carriageway no issues, come down slip road to island and start to hear an odd noise like clanking noise at first I thought it maybe something had come loose on roll bar as that was last thing I messed with. As it was late decided to investigate the following day, as I had to go and retrieve my jack got in the car started it up. Heard the noise again this time I'm stationary clearly nothing suspension related. Lifted bonnet and sounded not got sporadic clunking noise like metal against metal towards left hand side of engine. Drove to ford dealer on driving there it shut up on its own couldn't replicate noise when I got there. So went away drove round Sunday no issues, Monday morning over take someone drop off the speed then engine malfunction service now appears. Switch of engine start off again and drives ok to work. On way home after about 5 miles same thing happens again warning. Also car now feels sluggish. I've left it garage but I'm guessing something to do with variable timing?
