  1. I have a 2008 focus st face lift model and I keep getting a problem which keeps repeating itself. About a year ago I noticed that my oil temp and oil pressure gauges were not working properly coolant fan was on lacking in power put a code reader on and came up with po111 since then I have a map sensor fitted but it still come back on four times ,in December it came on again but after 4 days the fault cleared itself but was advised to have a maf sensor fitted (not cheap) then last Tuesday it came on again but it cleared itself on Saturday going to work. went for a check with code reader this morning and it is still showing "air intake temperature senor" Has any body got any ideas please.
  2. I Can Smell Oil From My Focus St

    took car today and was diagnosed as a oil breather valve needs replacing can't do any thing till next week, does any body know what they are or the cost?
  3. This may be a strange one for you but I keep getting an oil smell whilst I am driving my car sometimes just a whiff sometimes quite strong and sometimes never. Checked the oil still full. no leaks visable, a couple off people I have spoken to have said possible split in my breather pipe, has anybody ever come across this before?
  4. I have had a dianogstics test done today and it came back with fault code po111, now search time on google
  5. I have a 2008 focus st and I have noticed that my fan is on all the time whilst the engine is running my temperature gauge is showing normal. I have checked all the fuses and they are all ok, I can only assume that there must be a sensor some where on the car has anybody else come across this? or know where the senor is located?
  6. Declare To Insurance Company?

  7. St Badges Replacments.

    I have been down to my local ford dealership and they didn't know anything about it, they after many minutes keyboard bashing they found it, but to my disappointment it only covered the FORD front and rear the guy in parts learned something new today anyhow, but thanks for your replies.
  8. St Badges Replacments.

    Thank you for your replies please could you tell me more about the badge replacement program as my car is six years old and the badges look a mess.
  9. St Badges Replacments.

    I have a focus st facelift model and the badges on the wings need replacing(looks like they have worn away some how) I have priced up two form my local ford dealership but I am wondering how to take the old ones off with out causing any damage and to put the new ones on and making sure they stay on. Any replies would be very grateful.

  13. Stone Chips

    Thanks for your replies, Ive had the car since December it has done 59k I have put nearly 2k since Ive had it,it is 7miles each way to work and back all motoway but the chips have only started to show the last 2 or 3 weeks, certainly not on the car when I got it from my local Ford garage.
  14. Stone Chips

    After a good wash and polish on my focus this weekend I noticed that the front of my car was covered in stone chips, my car is performance blue in colour. Who would you recommend to sort this out. my local ford dealer or chips away or similar? mt car is an 08 plate.
  15. What Mpg Should I Expect On A 2008 St?

    Thanks for your replies, I didn't buy the car for the economy as I do about 30-40 miles a week some times less plus weekend trips. I have just returned from a long weekend in Newcastle and om the motorway at 70 ish mph I was getting 33 mpg, my last car was a 2ltr diesel that was excellent on fuel but not as much as the st to drive. Once again thank you for all the replies. :D
