    focus zetec 1.8 tdci
  1. It went because it had a engine hesitation, which it went back and forth to the garage for many times,it was simular to a petrol engined car with a bad spark plug,they never did manage to solve it properly,it was letting in water in both footwells in the front of the car,it jerked like a kangaroo in slow moving traffic,i just had enough of it,i believe the french design of engine in the 1.6 and 2.0 diesel cars are great,mine was the 1.8,it had electrical faults too!it,s a shame,i lost money on that car but i;m glad it's out of my life!!.
  2. My Focus 1.8 tdci 08 plate has gone!!!can't put up with it any longer!!now have a BMW 320D Touring,and love it,(so far!!)
  3. Windscreen and bulkhead leaks i was told by the garage who did the work,it's all ok now!!

  7. Could someone please tell me where abouts the MAF is on my 1.8 2008 tdci,and how to remove it,i want to give it a clean as the car has become jerky when moving off and it seems this could be the problem,thanks.
