  2. Focus 1.8Tdci Smokey

    Morning all can I pick your brains My car has developed a fault, when I drive and the turbo starts I get a whooshing sound from the engine also lots of black smoke out the exhaust now when I drive slowly it's fine there's no smoke also I've had the engine malfunction light with the triangle come on three times now the car does not go in to limp home mode or lose any power I've looked under the bonnet and can not find any lose hoses or anything really,the car ticks over fine , I put the car in to self diagnostic mode and no codes came up any ideas thank you Colin....

  7. 1.8 Tdci Loosing Power!

    If I'm right there should be no play , I had a problem with mine not long ago it turned out to be a split pipe causing a loss of power , I had a quick look on eBay and found a few company's who did a recon replacement turbo for 400 quid.
  8. Xenon Bulbs

    As we're on bulbs what are the best for a white light I've just put some night breakers plus in mine and there still yellow :-( as I've fitted my drl and led side lights they do look out of place
  9. Hard To Start From Cold

    Right all in at a local garage new starter and thermostat housing kit fitted with 12 months warranty £210 quid , what are ford thinking trying to charge near 800 quid the dirty buggers. I feel sorry for people who don't know much about cars there getting ripped off.
  10. Hard To Start From Cold

    I know I've told them to leave it robbing gits. How hard is it to change the housing and the starter ?
  11. Hard To Start From Cold

    Right service done at ford they have told me the glow plugs are fine but the starter motor is on its way out 400 quid to fix ???? And the thermostat housing needs replacing ? Another 300 quid now I know I've lost a bit of coolant but that sounds a lot .
