help me find a thread about or davise
I have a focus h/back 02/2004 1753cc diesel LX TDCI 95,000 MILES.
It is gutless until it hits 2,000 RPM when the turbo kicks then it is a dream to drive.
just done an all belts, filters and fluids service and no change to low revs power.
What do i check, sensors, Valves, CPU, or anything else?
please help me sort out yhe Better 1/2's Car
That's turbo lag.
Chech all pipes to the turbo for splits, leaks or squashing.
You may consider a remap if necessary to reduce the lag considerably.

Is this a common problem with a Duratorc engine? I had the intercooler off yesterday and there was a film of oil inside the pipes, is this normal?
All Ford turbo diesel engines have lag, maybe not quite as bad as yours though.
You may want to bung some BG244 engine cleaner through and see if that helps.
As to the oil, sorry i can't comment on that.
I'm sure someone else will be able to throw more light on the matter.

Cive thanks for your help,

Is BG244 some kind of fuel additive & who sells it? i have never heard of it before.
Only top draw fluids and belts used on service.
If you search eBay you'll find it.
I've used it a couple of times and it does what it says on the tin.
It's not cheap but it is worth it.

So sorry about the late responce.
After using that "BG244" it feels like we are driving a different car. power all the way down to 1,200 RPM. No puffs of smoke on acceleration, MPG up LOADS, Very happy bunny, thanks Clive.
Thanks for the reply, glad to hear you're happy with the results.
glad to hear the BG244 stuff worked for you, i was going to say remap but if its sorted then leave it as it is.
