  3. 2008 Focus Tdci Starting Issue

    well I had RAC out to it this morning to put there fault reader on it, it came back with a "fuel rail low pressure" DTC. It has a warranty so I have taken it in to the garage and let them fettle with the thing I have had an extensive look at the fuel system but i cannot see any leaks or anything that causes concern, but I am sure there is air getting into the system somewhere

  7. Hi I fitted a new battery and glow plugs to my focus about a month ago. All has been fine up until yesterday. I got in the car started it (first turn of the key) it ran for 30 seconds and just as i went to set off the engine just died. I tried to restart it, it was cranking fine just no attempt to start. Half an hour later it finally burst into life and was fine all day. Came out to the car this morning and the same happened again. once its started its fine all day it just seems the problem happens when it has been left over night. anyone else had the same or similar ? and if so what was wrong with yours ? thank you
