  1. No they didn't mate?........don't think they had a bag big enough for them parts! Main thing is its going okay for now and regardless of what's been or hasn't been fixed it's running ok.
  2. Hi all, just a quick up date on how things went at the garage today with the car. The engine noise was down to a shot/ damaged spark plug and coil lead?On the ecoboost there is 3 plugs and each have their own coil lead so the car can still run when one fails but apparently this has caused the engine to create a knocking noise!. They have replaced the coil and plug and all is okay for now and drives quieter and smoother too so fingers xd it fixed. Strange that something so simple as a plug could cause so much Trouble. Hope this helps but will keep you posted if any change.
  3. #will.
  4. Yeah mattdrx my thoughts exactly but will let them try and see what they say, but I'm not getting fobbed off anymore and want it fixed once and for all. The service guy at reception thought it was a pulley at first so this at be the next thing to look at if they can't solve it. To be honest I will be glad to get shut of the car next year because of the poor driving gears, poor mpg, engine noise, heater problems and tyre wear......and my wife drives like miss daisy too.
  5. Just been told that one of the spark plugs is shot so this may be the cause of the knocking sound?????? Not too sure about that but wait and see. They are going to replace it and see if it makes a difference so I will update you all later.

  8. Hi all, with regards to the engine noise, mine has been having the same problems over the last 3 months, and it's getting worse as time goes by. When I took the car for its first service I did mention the loud engine noise and the mechanic said he would check it out but when I returned to collect it I was told all was ok and it was the characteristic of the ecoboost engine and nothing to worry about. The thing is it's intermittent and happens on a cold and warm engine while idle,but it's getting louder and more frequent aswell. The car drives and pulls away ok too, but with this engine noise it's starting to take the fun out of driving it. I'm having to take the car back in on Friday for re- work on a faulty heater box( heating controls inside car?) as they need to take the dash out again to fix a bolt so I've mentioned about the engine noise again and hope to get an answer. I've also taken a video of the engine noise so will try to post it later. The car is a 13 plate 1l ecoboost with around 11800 miles on the clock. Thanks Mike.
  9. Hi paulospanda with regards to your question on the ecoboost engines I have a fiesta 1litre ecoboost with 900 miles on the clock now and I'm not sure if I like it, but this may change in time. This is my wife's car but have driven it a bit myself and there are a few things I'm not sure on. First is the engine vibrations and noise and yes I know it's a 3 cylinder but still takes some getting used too, and like you mentioned the gear ratio to speed? I have to drive in 3rd gear to keep the car at 30mph and if I shift to fourth it feels like it will stall? Anyone else have the same problem? And as mentioned the mpg is a bit low around 41 mpg but hope this will change when more miles are under the bonet. Otherwise the car is great, well equipped and fast, and an improvement on my 11 plate zetec 1.25 (82) but just wish the mpg, gear ratio/ speed will improve to tick all the boxes. P.s sorry if this post is in the wrong place or layout as I'm still trying to get used to the site! Which I think is great by the way.....later.
