  1. Focus 1.8Tdci Low Mpg And White Smoke On Start Up

    Hi many thanks for remembering me.........had my car in for diagnostics,....no faults showed so they put some injectors off of another focus to see if there was a difference,, unfortunately no change there!!! Still misfires terribly on first start up..so yesterday had my original injectors put back and seals redone...a wire was almost through on one of the injectors so that's been repaired but not the problem either.... Have bought some forte injector cleaner to put through but next step is to replace either the fuel filter or the car!!!!!ford garage have absolutely no idea what's causing the misfire so anythings worth a try at mo....such a shame asthe car is fantastic once it's warm...runs a dream and so responsive....takes on any boy racer!!!LOL...

  3. Focus 1.8Tdci Low Mpg And White Smoke On Start Up

    Thanks for asking about my car..I had the turbo pipe checked as apparently that can cause these problems and that's ok so ford are doing diagnostic on it on the 25th...now it's just a case of wait and see....fingers crossed its not the injectors as I've been told cost is around £1000......when I get more info I'll post it for others to see...
