My 2012 Ford Ranger turbo-diesel auto is very noisy. It's only done 11,990 km, but when the engine is cold, or on a hot day, it is excessively noisy. The noise sounds like the engine doesn't have oil in it. It is noisiest between 1500-2000 rpm. Have you heard of this problem from anybody else?
We contacted Ford on your behalf and we understand that they inspected your vehicle and found a faulty injector was the cause of your problem. Why it took the intervention of headquarters to determine that is beyond our comprehension.
Worn injectors are a regular problem on common-rail diesels.
