  1. Is the dct 250 the one that is also fitted to the Fiesta in 1.6 petrol form?
  2. Have you had the scanner connected whilst the EML is illuminated as not all codes are stored, some are on 'visible' to a reader when being displayed on the dash.
  3. Make sure it isn't a Powershift Auto!
  4. I recent cleaned the throttle body on the MK2.5 1.8 petrol that I bought the wife as the car was hanging onto revs. The throttle body was BLACK inside but a can of carb cleaner and few washing up scrubbers saw to that. I'm not sure how easy it is to remove on the old 1.6 engine but I'm sure some of the more knowledgeable people will be along shortly to walk you through it!
  5. Unless you want to pay Ford prices I'd suggest scrappies on ebay.
  6. I had mine off my MK2 1.8 TDCI for a couple of months when I replacing the front wings due to rust. The engine bay way minging just for driving for a couple of months without the tray on, I'd get one cheap from a scrappy sooner rather than later mate.
  7. Impossible to say without seeing pictures of the areas that need work doing.
  8. When pressed the AC button should illuminate regardless of whether the AC system is actually working properly.

    As long as the hybrid doesn't have a noisy CVT gearbox and ride quality of a Toyota Auris! (Has several as hire cars and it really was like driving a milk float).
  10. As per @Frembrit's advice I'd get the battery checked 1st as a dead battery would typically present the kind of symptoms you've described. As a bonus if it does turn out to be that it's an easy fix.
  11. I think the cambelt is 100K miles or 10 years, whichever comes 1st.
  12. What about the 2.0 TDCi?
  13. If you put your vehicle VIN into it should list any outstanding recalls for your vehicle.
  14. Have you checked your oil level since the whining started? It could be that you're low on oil (not good for the life expectancy of a turbo).
  15. When I 1st got my 1.8 TDCi it kicked out all sorts of crap on a cold start and run rough until it started to warm up, replacing the glow plugs sorted it out.
