2009 Ford Focus. Consumer states problem with ticking noise the consumer stated there were engine/exhaust noise emitting from the vehicle after it was turned off. According to the dealer, some Ford vehicle may exhibit a ticking/pinging noise from the hot exhaust after the engine is turned off and the exhaust cools down, which is due to the exhaust system expanding and contracting during heating and cooling cycles. The ticking/pinging should be considered normal. The brake fluid light illuminated and it was determined the fluid was low. The tires were found to be out of round, the air bag light illuminated. The TPMS light illuminated due to low pressure in one of the tires. It was determined that one of the tires had a leak.
