  1. Just had a quick Google image search of this engine and it does look like this is how it leaves the factory
  2. Yes my thoughts exactly, the car is an x-fleet car and has a full ford history but I can't say for sure if that tatty pipe hasn't been replaced, it is an original ford pipe because it has the FOMOCO logo stamped on it and some sort of aligning white marker paint on the pipe and the cable tie. Hopefully more users with this engine could confirm?
  3. Thanks for the reply
  4. So I've just purchased a 14 plate Mk3 Focus 1.6 TDCI which I got for a fantastic price, I've just had it in to a main ford dealer for a service and they have picked up on an oil leak from around the throttle body housing (which they say is covered by the manufacturers warranty) and it's booked in for this repairing next week. Here are a few pictures of the leak, just wondering if anyone with this engine has has had this ? Also I've noticed this pipe which is in between the air box and turbo , it's held on with cable ties and it looks a bit tatty which makes me think it's been off before. Is anyone elses the same? Thanks guys
  5. Does the car have drum brakes? If so mine does it in the winter time when it's left wet and not used for a few days. A few more revs than normal and they make like a pop sound, it's just them sticking
  6. Mine is the same it really annoys me I think every other car I've owned when you lower the window it clears the rain from the glass but guess the focus likes to be different
  7. Know this a really old topic but did anyone try the op method. Did it cure the problem of rain water going all over when opening the boot? Thanks
  8. Thanks again, like you say lots more reading :)
  9. Thanks for the reply ,I've been looking at other threads and this site has been great on information about the elm. I guess I have a lot to learn on how exactly the software works, I'm going to order the one I've linked and see how it goes. I currently have an 08 mk2.5 petrol focus that I'd like to tinker with, and I've just purchased a mk3 14 plate focus diesel that I'd like to keep an eye on the dpf. Time to get reading :)
  10. Hi, I've been thinking of getting a modified elm cable I've seen a few on eBay but I'd like to know what you guys are using. I've seen this on eBay would you think this would be alright? Thanks Edit: does all the software work with windows 10?
  11. I saw these on a popular deal site hope they could be use to someone on here. Spread the word a genuine set of ford alloys for only £99.99
  12. Are you sure she didn't put petrol in............. It happens!
  13. Thanks for the reply
  14. Hi there, My 1.6 petrol 2008 focus zetec is at that age for the timing belt replacing (mileage is 70 thousand). I'm thinking I should have the belt and pullys changed. Would you recommend having the water pump and coolant changed at the same time? (I have with previous cars) Also has anybody recently had this done and what sort of price I should expect (thinking of an indie garage) Thanks for any help with this :)
  15. Wow very lucky!
