  5. 06 Focus 1.8Tdci Abnormal Turbo Noise

    When driving the car coming onto and off the turbo in each gear there is a very abnormal noise. the noise is identical to a sucking in of air noise. The noise only happens when driving the car. I have brought the car in checked the pipes coming of the turbo and going to intercooler and there is nothing wrong with any off these pipes. Could it possibly be the turbo is on its way out or has anyone ever came across this problem before. many thanks

    you can hear it at 1800rpm once the turbo kicks in and then it goes away at about 4200rpm
  7. How Do I Change Fuel Filter On Focus

    The fuel filter is right in front of the tank at the back of car driver side. There is a small bracket that holds the filter in place with a 7 or 8mm bolt in the bracket, Take this bolt out and remove half of the bracket, There is a pipe connection on either side of the filter, remove these two connections then the filter. Before you remove the filter make sure and take note of what direction the arrow is pointing on the fuel filter as if the filter is put on the wrong way around the petrol will not get through the filter properly and therefore probably wont start to well.

  20. Idling Problem

    i put a small amount of diesel into my petrol focus, got her home and drained all the mixture out of the fuel tank right up to the fuel pump. replaced the fuel filter. filled her up full of petrol, car went alright until the fuel level dropped down to just above the minimum on the fuel guage. The car started to misfire and was idling badly. i changed the spark plugs, ht leads and the coil pack, car went alright until the next time the petrol was low and same thing happened again. can anyone please help me.?
  21. Fuel Filter

    the fuel filter will be in around the fuel tank at the rear of the car. it comes in the shape of an inline fuel filter. normally postioned at the back or front of the fuel tank.
