  2. 2007 Focus MK2 1.8 TDCI

    I think that is normal for a mk1 of that age.It probably looks worse than it is but definitely needs looking into.When you had the springs replaced did anyone mention the poor condition the arms,that would of been a good time to replace them as well. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC

  10. 1.8 Tdci Flashing coil light Please Help

    If one or more of the injectors are leaking then it's going to be expensive unless you go down the reconditioned route.I wouldn't go as far as a right off but unfortunately you might have to throw some money at it.I would get it tested to see if you can rule that one out and take it from there.

    I know you said money is tight but you are probably best to take your car to a garage.If you go to YouTube and type in leak off test for diesel common rail injections that will give you an idea of what's what.Hope this is of some help Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
