  1. 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.
  2. Problems with 'SYNC media'

    Hi all, I'm currently having issues using the SYNC media function in my fiesta ecoboost. My android phone connects to SYNC via Bluetooth as usual but when I go to listen to music the message 'play music from device' appears. It does not say connect a bt device so I'm unable to play any music through my phone. This did happen to me a few months back where I ended up using the AUX instead and then it magically started working again. If anyone know what this is please advise as it's getting a bit annoying now. Kind regards, TheScoobyCollector.
  3. Ecoboost Rattle?

    Does anyone else’s ecoboost focus have a rattle at the low end when putting the revs on? If I’m stationary and put my foot down, not hard, there’s a rattle as the revs increase. Not sure if it’s somethibf loose inside the car, something rattling in the engine or if it’s all perfectly fine and that’s what they do? It sounds like a chain rattling. I’ve filmed it and uploaded it here if anyone can advise?
  4. Mk7 Fiesta Heater Problem

    Hi, I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction as to what the issue is with my Heater. The heater/blower blows cold air regardless of what temperature the heat is set to until the power is set to number 4 where you can hear a 'pop' type of sound and then will blow out red hot air. Then the only way to get cold air back is to completely turn off the blower and wait for another popping type of sound and the heater will then blow out cold air. Does anyone have any idea as to what this issue is as it's getting pretty frustrating trying to equalise red hot air with cold. Thanks
  5. Hey all, basically looking for some info with different Remap companies for my Ford Focus St-Line 1.5T 150bhp. I am really interested in the Superchips remap system (Bluefin) but am told Ford can pick it up on Warranty. Someone also told me Revo are another good brand to look at. Looking for advice and hopefully someone has the same engine or similar and gas had a remap. Does it male a difference? Is it worth spending the £400 for the extra 40-50bhp? Any advice given would be much appreciated. Thanks
  6. Hi everyone, my name's Andrew. I Live not far from Swansea. Just had delivery of my 2017 Ford Focus St-Line 1.5T 150bhp Auto. I am looking for any advice, problems, solutions etc. Hope to hear and see some of you guys. Thanks
  7. Hi all, I was hoping to increase the power from 123hp to the max the turbo can take which is around 170-180, I would like to go to the 200 mark however I believe the engine and gearbox won't cope? Would anything else be needed other than an exhaust, intercooler and remap? I've heard the 1.0 ecoboost engines can get quite hot and do require a significant amount of cooling. Is an induction kit needed or would a panel filter suffice? Also is there anywhere to find parts cheaper as it seems to get an extra 50hp it's going to cost over 2k fitted and thats before spending money on brakes, clutch, exterior bits, etc. Kind Regards, TheScoobyCollector
  8. I'm hoping to get some advice on this £4,354.05 problem but first I need to tell the story ! I bought this 2013 Focus titanium 1L Ecoboost 2 years ago and had been very happy with it up until April when it suddenly lost power on the motorway with no instrument warning lights. Nothing much to see except a bit of steam and plenty of coolant splashed around the engine compartment. I was far away from home, visiting a relative in hospital in the West Midlands and I had to stay to make arrangements for them. Unfortunately I had limited internet access (just a small phone) so had no idea about these ecoboost engines being equipped with defective degas coolant hoses. I booked the car into a small independent garage near Cradley Heath railway station, returned home (North Yorkshire) and then went on holiday abroad a few days later. When I finally found out about the degas hose problem I contacted Ford who at first dismissed any notion of responsibility since I'd taken the car to a non-Ford dealer to get it repaired. But they gave me a reference number to pursue the case further once the repairs were complete, which they now are having paid £4,354.05 (reconditioned engine and turbocharger from Ford, other bits, labour & VAT). So any advice on the following would be a real help: How do I deal with the issue of not having used a Ford dealer? I found an independent garage, SMB Autocentre, that sounded competent, was well reviewed (on Motor Ombudsman site) and was near a railway station for ease of travel. They repaired the car with Ford parts and a reconditioned engine from Ford. An important point here is that I'd chosen this garage weeks before I discovered this was a preexisting problem with many ecoboost engines Frankly I don't see how my choice of repair garage detracts from Ford's responsibility for installing defective coolant hoses in the first place. Does anyone know of any car owners taking legal action against Ford for this same problem? Any useful tips in getting some cooperation from Ford? As yet I haven't got back to Ford with list of final repair costs. For all I know they might be quite helpful, I just want to be prepared really. Thanks in advance for any help, Nick
  9. So I've just recently picked up a 16 plate Zetec S 1.0 ecoboost and I have to say I'm hugely impressed! My dad has the st which I've driven but this in itself is a fantastic car, great smooth ride, quick, economical and an all round great car! My only qualm is how quiet the hiss from the turbo sounds! My question is what's the best modification to increase this sound? I'm not looking for something to necessarily make it louder when accelerating, just something to make that hiss from the turbo louder... My budget is £100-£200 and I'm just looking for some advice, much appreciated!
  10. Hello guys new here just looking for some help on my focus OK so I drove it all day no problem parked it up jumped into it as usual the next day tried to start the car (push button)And nothing all lights on the dash come on you can hear clicks going on but still nothing battery is brand new 2 weeks old I did a test in the engine fuse box with a wire were the starter relay would be to check if the starter motor was dead but no engine turns over as if it wanted to start as normal i have also tried jump start obviously i can only think it's some kind of electrical problem some were any body had this problem?
  11. Last week I finally got to pick up my Zetec S, in anticipation of getting my car - I spent a serious amount of time (probably too much) watching Youtube videos and looking at threads about Fiestas, and modifications in general. This gave me a lot of ideas for what I wanted to do. After having the car for a week, I have added a white grille 'S' badge and changed the foot well bulbs for blue light panels - it is pretty much stock. Here's a short list for the things I had in mind for the future: Team Heko wind deflectors (duh) 'S' gel wing badges Replacing all exterior bulbs with brighter ones TRC eyebrows TRC splitter (possibly with a white pinstripe?) New alloys - Black Possibly wrapping the roof and wing mirrors black That is all I have in mind at the moment, but I am open to suggestions and would like to know what you guys think would look good. After having the car for a week, I do love it stock. But there are just a few cosmetic changes that I think make the MK7.5 look even better. Here are a couple of pictures I have took so far:
  12. Hi Guys, I have had my 2013 fiesta ecoboost for 1 year now and have been averaging around 27 mpg I do 100% local mileage with most trips being less than 5 miles. I get around 250 miles on a full tank, is there something wrong with my car? Thanks
  13. Help - Fiesta keyless battery low

    Hi all, The battery in my keyless fob for a 2013 fiesta ecoboost titanium X is low and needs replacing. Which type of battery do I need? I went to Halfords and they advised it would need reprogramming from the dealer, is this true? This is the only key I have aswell so don't want it to die. Kind regards, The Scooby Collector.
  14. Hi guys. - apologies if this has been already asked, I have searched the forum and spent the best part of an hour flicking through topics on this section.... I've recently picked up a 1.0 125 ecoboost zetec and I'm starting to look into the mods that I can get for it. So far im looking into the bluefin remap, airtek intercooler, turbosmart dual port valve and a replacement air filter (either itg or pipercross) im reluctant to look at induction kits as they sound horiffic and im looking for more of an understated build..... With that said, Im looking around for a replacement exhaust, now i know Milltek sell sports exhausts for the Fiesta, but I cant seem to find anyone who makes them for the Focus... Are there any about (looking for cat back ideally)? or is it a case of popping to my local Longlife centre for a custom s/s exhaust (luckily theres one about 15 miles from my house and have used them before for my old focus) Many thanks in advance.
  15. Hi guys Welcome to my progress thread! Well, my old mk6.5 was written off unfortunately and my friend who works for Ford recommended the new Zetec S to me, and after a few weeks of looking around I decided it was the sensible choice for me. I picked up my Panther Black Zetec S from a Ford garage on the 31st of October, it's the 1.0 Ecoboost 125ps, 1 Owner from new, 6,471 miles, one service on it and there extras consist of; Privacy glass, Upgraded 17" alloys, City Pack and Start/Stop pack. It was one of the ford guy's girlfriends car, only sold it back to them because they got an upgrade because of his job, so something nice and legit, and no dodgy reasons! I don't have a proper list of what I want to do just yet, but a Stage 1 Revo remap and new exhaust system is on the cards. But for now I'll just be adding bits on here and there but will be sure to post about it! Ordered a pack of LED's last night so hopefully they're going to turn up some point this week. Here are some of the photos the day I officially bought her! And the day after, picking her up! Couldn't quite believe how clean it was... Thanks for reading :)
  16. Hi all :) sooo im completely new to all this, and I've been reading all the threads for the past few weeks but have decided to bite the bullet and do my own! i currently have the 1.0l 125 ecoboost Fiesta, and I've been looking into the mountune MP135 upgrade but have no clue where to start! i have the Ford warranty so most other options are out of the window for me unfortunately, but I just wanted to know if I could just get the MP135 kit to start off with, or if I'd have to upgrade other things along with it, or if not what would work well with it? Does anyone have any experience with this and what it's like for fitting? Could I do it myself or would I need to have it done? I also wanted to get the mountune sport spring kit, again does anyone have experience for fitting? How's the ride afterwards? sorry for the 18288229628 questions haha I'm just a newby trying to find my feet! any helps much appreciated, thanks guys! :)
  17. Hello All I have got a 15 plate fiesta 100ps ecoboost. Please can you advise how to open the bonnet? I will need to do this at some stage to top up washer fluid I have looked the manual - but there is no context regarding the location of the latch to open the bonnet. Any help welcome. Just saves a trip bck to the dealer for help. Many thanks Bev
  18. Few issues with my ecoboost...

    Hi all, Have just got a few issues with my 5 door mk 7.5 fiesta titanium x that I was wondering if anyone could provide a solution to. 1. Start Stop doesn't seem to work anymore 2. One touch only works for the passanger window 3. Aircon doesn't work - probably just needs regassing? 4. The button for the windscreen washer doesn't work. The previous owner use to disconnect the battery quite a bit for security reasons so I think that may have caused some of the issues. Regards, TheScoobyCollector.
  19. Expansion tank/resevoir

    Hello I had the degas hose on my 2013 Ford Focus 1.0 Ecoboost replaced in March this year as it split. I noticed the other week that the expansion tank has a very small crack that is dripping fluid at a very slow rate. Does anybody know the part number for the expansion tank? I bought the car second hand in '14 and had it serviced with Ford in '15, then serviced independantly in '16 & 17 so doubt Ford will replace the tank for free. I'm also assuming replacing the tank is straight forward job I can do myself. Thanks in advance
  20. Hi guys, The handbrake button on my 2013 fiesta is stuck in, last night I pulled the handbrake up and the button stayed in (didn't pop out), the handbrake still works but it's quite annoying. Hoping someone has a quick fix. Thanks
  21. Looking for some advice here so please feel free to comment... have owned my fiesta since new, now just had its 3rd birthday and showing 16k on the clock so think it's pretty well run in and fancy giving it a little bit of oomph! have looked at Revolution, Collins, Mountune, etc but really looking for experienced owners to give me some feedback on the best way forward and what the best products are. look forward to hearing back from the community... my first post btw so please be gentle! 😉
  22. I'm picking up my 2014 zetec s fiesta on saturday, and i've been looking all over for little mods that make a big difference. Seen a few lads with white led headlight bulbs and it looks so clean. was hoping someone would be able to help me by providing a link to where i can get them and also how to fit them because headlights are something i've never messed about with. Also so if you've got any suggestions on appearance mods for me to do i'd love to hear them
  23. I'm looking to do small modifications to the exterior and interior of my new car 👌 not looking for any engine modifications ... Yet :b just focusing on more of the looks at the moment to make it stand out a little , anybody got any recommendations on what I could get for the new car? :)
  24. 1.0 Ecoboost oil leak

    So Ford had my car for a day to investigate an overheating problem and yesterday I find it's now leaking oil. I'm guessing they ragged it to try to get the temps up, as it was fine when I dropped it off. Many ideas where the leak might be?
  25. How to turn traction control off?

    Hi all, I own a 2013 fiesta ecoboost titanium x and was wondering how to turn the traction off? I looked in the manual which says to go through the settings but I couldn't find an option to turn it on or off. If anyone has any ideas please share. Regards, TheScoobyCollector
