Wonder if any of you can offer advice. I have an 06 Ford Focus which has 78,000 on the clock. Months after buying it I had to replace the turbo with was costly enough. Now the engine is making a noise (which settles down after a while) but the engine oil light is coming and going off periodically. Checked the oil and that seems to be OK. The garage are now saying that to resolve this problem I would need to have the engine stripped down and more than likely replaced. Not being mechanically minded I now know that Fords of this age had problems with their engines being starved of oil as the filters became blocked. Would changing the tappits / oil filter / oil help resolve this problem? I dont want to spend too much on this car as I was going to get rid of it anyway. Already spent over £2000 on the car which originally cost £5500.
If this doesnt solve the problem does anyone know where I can get shot of this car as I dont need the hastle and if I had known that Fords had this problem when I was working at the Ford dealership in Inverness I wouldnt have touched them with a barge pole.
