    Default Ford fusion engine noise

    Hi, can anyone give us some advice on a Ford fusion 1.6 petrol with engine noise /tappets being loud. I have just bought it and the car has service history one owner and only 16.000 miles on it but I think it's a bit noisy. I'm just not sure if it's me but sounds a bit like a diesel. Are the 1.6 engines like this? Any ideas would be much appreciated as its driving me mad and it's on an 11 plate. Thanks.

    First think to do is to check the oil amount. If you havent changed it after taking the car from the old owner, that should be the first think to do after buying used car. Other pissibilities could be valves that need some correction or need to be changed, or even may be some of the oil roads are jammmmmed. Last possible variation ( I dont think this is the problem, otherways the car would be dead by now ), noit working oil pump.
