  6. hi i tryed starting my focus this morning it was dead ignition on but wouldnt start. there was i clicking noise coming from the starter motor. i know im gunna have to replace it but is it best to change the solenoid at the same time cheers
  7. Hi im replacing my egr valve because mine is stuck open/closed causing the car to loose power. ive heard about replacing the vacuum horse helps as they oftern collapse.how many vacuum pipes need replacing ???? thanks in advance
  8. He was guessing it was the egr valve. he said 9/10 it's the valve thats stuck i think i'll take it to ford to get a diagnostic on it before a splash out more money on it
  9. Hi my focus wont go above 3k revs. i;ve took it to a garage and they have said the egr valve keeps sticking. can i sort this problem myself by cleaning it or does it need replacing. Thank you all in advance for your reply's
  10. Hi over the last month ive spent a lot of money getting my focus fixed. ive got a leak coming from the oil cooler and got priced £150 for cooler and labour. I picked a oil cooler up today for £40. I was just wondering if this is to much of a big job for myself and am i going to come across any problems taking off/replacing oil cooler
  11. /=-44It stops bang on 50mph and the engine management light isn't illuminated on the dash.
  12. That's wot i was guessing limp-home mode but someone said it could be an open valve aswell.
  13. The engine came off a 04 plate focus it was in a back-end smash resulting in a write off. the mileage was around 75-76k my old engine had done 160+k. The car is booked back in the garage on tuesday to sort the loss of power/3k rev max. And the oil cooler i have to pay to get that replaced myself as it was off my old engine and not under the garage waranty. Hopefully after the car is running correctly ill change my mind about parting with my focus and fall back in love with her.
  14. Here goes had new engine fitted 2nd hand (all my old parts went onto the engine). The car wont go above 2-3k revs which is anoying with a 50mph speed limit. Now i have an oil leek coming from the oil cooler. I thing the best place for it could be with its mother in scrap yard
  15. I got............... 9359 ..........B1359.......... Ignition Run/ACC circuit failure. wot is this i have just had the engine from a 2004 focus fitted in my car. My car has also lost power it WILL NOT GO FASTER THAN 55MPH. is this due to the code???????????
