After a recent weekend away travelling in convoy. I was told that my focus is smoking during accelleration..
My oil level was down and I was concerned. I had it checked out and the o ring wasl leaking. the fuel injectors were sooted up.. He sorted this out and put some additives to the fuel & oil to clean it out. I was told to drive the car hard for the remainder of fuel left in the tank and this should stop smoking.
This has not changed anything.
It was 4000 miles since my last full service and a new triming belt was added.
I just seem to lack power in setting off and in 2nd gear and it smoking as I accelerate before the turbo kicks in. In 3rd, 4th and 5th the focus is flying.
I realised that I may have to see a diesel specialist but i was wondering if anyone else is experiancing the same problem.

I have the exact same problem, before I bought my focus, I had a quick blast in my mates 03 1.8 TDCi and it seemed to fly like a rocket especially in 1st and 2nd, which is what made me want the car in the first place. Now I have my 2002 1.8 TDCi focus, it doesn't seem to be nearly as quick as my mates in 1st and 2nd which I noticed on my test drive (the reason why I bought it was because it had a full ford service history :D).

Some days it doesn't seem as though the turbo kicks in at all in 1st and 2nd, which is incredibly frustrating :angry:

might be worth getting the egr valve off and clean it out. also any of the pipework and galleries related to it.

Cheers mate! I'll have a go at that. I don't suppose you know where I can find a "how to" as to the process :rolleyes: ?
