Advice needed - Engine Problem

Had a look at my dads car today as he has a nasty noise coming from the engine at high revs. I really struggled to locate the noise and ruled out the pulleys and belts. I took the top off the air box and took the filter out and the noise seems to be coming from the engine and echoing through the air box.

Anyone have any ideas what could be rubbing inside the engine ?

It's a 2003 V6 2.5l Mondeo.

Cheers

Appears to be known as Moosing !! Yeah I know.... only a ford can have a fault called Moosing !



A few cures for it but I'm going to have a fiddle first and reposition the pipes and make sure everything it tight

Re: Advice needed - Engine Problem

As crazy as it may be that does sound like my dads car !!

Most advice seems to be to replace the air intake or buy a K&N. Apparently the plastic/rubber goes brittle causing the resonance of sound ?
