  1. 2013 1.0l Ecoboost engine rust. Problem?

    Ford have agreed to cover 100% of the repair cost. Delighted! Thanks all for your help, without the knowledge on this board i'd have continued driving the car and would now be facing the repair costs of a new engine.

    Well, my Fiesta now has a new turbo and degas hose too. Total cost for turbo and labour was £1090, thankfully the mechanic at trust ford has described the original turbo rust as a manufacturers design fault so Ford CRC are currently negotiating how much they will contribute to the cost.

    Update on mine - dropped the car off at Ford Walthamstow this morning. Guy at reception didn't say much other than i asked him the cost of a replacement turbo and he said roughly £1k including labour. Obviously i'll be asking Ford CR to contribute to this cost, but if you have minor rust on these pipes i'd get it sorted before it becomes a problem like this.

    So, I can't get the Ford looked at by an official dealer in london until the 29th! Madness. Confused as what to do here - slightly terrified the pipes could corrode through at any time so loathed to drive the car, but also can't let the battery go flat as i have to get it to the dealer on the 29th. How long can a fiesta be left without being driven before the battery dies? Last big trip was two weeks ago. Ford customer relations have replied, simply saying the complaint has been passed onto a manager and they will get back to me.

    Well i'm resigned to the fact i'll need a new turbo, just hope Ford customer relations pay up. Would be very strange if they didn't consider Ford Denmark does over the same issue. Ludicrous such a vital part of the engine should be so corrosive within 4 years. I'll also get them to replace the coolant hose with the metal insert, as it too is showing signs of corrosion. Not good!

    Will do Matthew and thanks everyone else for your advice! Calling my local ford dealer tomorrow to arrange service.

    Anyone know how much a replacement turbo + labour costs from a ford dealer?

    After a bit of internet research seems this was a problem in Denmark?! Fingers crossed it's an easy fix. https://translate.google.co.uk/translate?sl=da&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fnyheder.ford.dk%2Fnews%2Ffakta-om-taering-af-koeleroer-til-turbo-paa-ecoboost-1-punktum-0-l-201287&edit-text=

    Surely just those pipes are replaceable rather than the whole turbo?
  12. Hello all, First post here. I recently bought a 2013 1.0l ecoboost fiesta that has full service history and one previous owner. 33k miles on the clock. I've noticed some rust and corrosion on some of the engine parts, specifically two metal connectors that seem to go from the coolant pipe to the engine and then also possibly to the radiator (?) Should i get these replaced? Would it be a fairly cheap part replacement? Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers. Cameron.
