  1. Mine is a 1.6 diesel 115 and feels the same too. I always switch off the start/stop too. Clutch feels strange and judders.
  2. Radio not working

    Sounds like it's a common problem then. I'll stick the heating on full for a few minutes and that might help. Thanks for replies! Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

  5. Radio not working

    Hi, my radio was working fine up to yesterday evening. What happens is when I press radio nothing happens and it’s stuck on AM. Pressed radio to change to DAB or FM and does not respond. When I change source to Phone, CD, or AUX it works but when I go back to Radio is stuck on AM. I was wondering if this ever happened to any of you and if it’s an easy fix. Thanks in advance.
  6. 63 Plate TDCI FOCUS DPF Regen

    Forgot to mention that I have been advised to change oil and filter every 6K miles and not 12.5 K miles.

    Sarah it's a great car with a fab engine. Not come across any major problems so far on the net. MPG is great too. I had it for 6 weeks now, done 2 K miles and not been on the motorway yet but did a couple of times were I drove in 5th gear @ 70 MPH for 15 mins. Not noticed any regens yet! Not sure about DPF cleaner but to be honest I don't like using these sort of cleaners and engine flushes.

    You should be ok as you do long motorway journeys but have a read on this: http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/topic/82842-16-diesel-worried-over-choice-of-engine/ especially the last 4 posts. There is a good explanation on DPF by Dee_82. Also if you read from the beginning you can find some interesting posts regarding our TDCI 1.6 engine.
  9. EGR blanking and cleaning

    I thing that i will leave it alone for now!!
  10. EGR blanking and cleaning

    There are a couple of videos on u tube regarding blanking mk2.5 egr's but haven't seen any on mk3 yet. To be honest I haven't looked yet but it should be similar. So if an egr is blanked does it mean that it does not need to be cleaned? Do i need to disable it too?
  11. Hi all I have a MK 3 Focus 1.6 tdci (115) with 32 k miles. Are these engines easy to blank the egr valves and do they need to be cleaned out or are they self clean? Thanks
  12. Slight gearbox/driveshafts oil leak.

    That's a point!! Do you know if theses cars have gearbox oil filler or do you have to pull the shaft out to fill. I could not see one but maybe i just not look at the right places.
  13. Slight gearbox/driveshafts oil leak.

    Hi Ian, it is not dripping and it's damp around the outer diameter of the seal. It is wet around the area which i wiped and will check again in a week or two. Shouldn't this oil have dried out after 3 years and 32K miles?
  14. Hi, have noticed a slight gearbox oil leak from the driveshafts. It's not dripping but noticeable. Is this normal as I never notice this on my other Fords that I owned. Also, anyone knows where the gearbox oil filler is as could not see it anywhere?
  15. Clutch smell when reversing.

    I'f only had the car 3 weeks, I have done the same hill start in reverse with several cars and never noticed any clutch smell from my previous cars. Maybe I need to control the clutch better. I will try again and see what happens.
