    Fiesta Zetec-s TDCI MK7
  1. Morning Not sure what's going on but twice now I have been going along about 1minute or so and its like there is no boost. Pushing down in the accelerator the revs wont increase but the car itself idles OK and no lights on the dash are flashing. But as soon as I turn the car off and on its fine?? Now I had filled up with different diesel between the 2 times its happened in case it was a bad batch but no change. Stripped airbox down to see if its blocked but nothing. So now I need some advice.
  2. Is that a zs or a titanium as its got chrome fog surrounds???
  3. Did you get the springs designed for the diesel or for petrol? As thats the lowest i have seen a mk7 on 30mm eibachs. Might get them instead of the aps.
  4. i purchased these the other day, going to slightly trim mine a bit as its not a perfect fit but cant complain at that price. ford wanted 157 for the whole kit
  5. I went a few years ago and I paid at the gate. So think you can again. There is a website for it. Hit Google up
  6. It won't help cos its a boost gauge.The vent on the side between the door and dash does that job. Tho its never got that steamy in my car.
  7. I did think about drilling the plastic part but then thought about replacing the ribbed part. But maybe I will go back to the plastic. Cheers
  8. right i have done some bits but i have hit a problem. My pipe from my turbo is slightly different. Its not a flat pipe its got lots of ridges and no where to get a flat surface to get a decent air tight fixing. As seen here: Going to see someone tomorrow and see what ideas they can come up with. But on the plus side i have sorted a place for the gauge to go: Going to rediret the air away from the back of the gauge, thinking towards my feet.
  9. Owned a vxr corsa for about a year and can say the actual drive of the car was very nice. Seats very comfy and I really liked the car. Just not very reliable so got rid. Personally the St does nothing for me, think its quite a lame effort by ford on the design front. Rather go for a couple year old focus St.
  10. i am rolling a 1.6tdci, will read your guide and report back. cheers
  11. Has anyone fitted one to there mk7 tdci fiesta? I have one which i got for another car but sold it so thought i could put it in the fiesta. Any pictures of where you ran the air line pipe and also where you put the t piece in too???
  12. it was a 1.6 lol with fake dials
  13. Here is mine when it was lowered on ap coilovers so you can see the difference between standard and pretty much as low as they will go.
  14. my 2009 tdci 1.6 is having problems in this weather. I start it wait a while for things to warm up but once you go and the revs drop it stalls. Engine malfunction comes up and i have to start again. Very lumpy and now thinking a trip to ford is in order. But since reading this i am wondering if i need to let it warm up for longer. it was -15 last night and is now -13 so think its struggling in this cold snap. Anyone else struggling with there tdci mk7 fiesta then let me know
  15. i have the older 1.6 and i know need info on this 144bhp fiesta....any links to the diesel forum?
