  1. Hey, I am having a "problem" with my Mk 2.5, EURO 5, Focus 1.6 TDCi 110HP (72k miles). After driving for long time (like an hour or more) at motorway speeds, the check engine light comes on and i get the P0234 Turbo Overboost error. The strange thing is that the car drives absolutely fine when the error occurs. No limp mode, no loss of power. There is no way to know the car is having the error without looking at the dashboard to see the check engine light. I tried to reset the error code, but it keeps reappearing in the above scenario. Tried going full throttle from 1st gear to 3rd changing gears at ~4000rpm and the problem did not occur. It seems to me like it only happens at higher gears/higher speeds. I have to mention I got the EGR mapped out at a local tunner, but I am thinking that the EGR was closed anyway at those speeds, so I doubt this could be the cause. I also have to mention that my DPF Differential Pressure is about 13 kPa ~80mph at full throttle and 0.6-0.9 kPa at idle, which seems a little bit high to me, but no errors logged yet about DPF. I was considering the clogged DPF causing too much pressure hence, the overboosting. Are those values indeed high or am I wrong? Is there any risk driving the car with the overboost code as long as limp mode doesn't occur? Any ideea that can help me diagnose my problem? Thank you!
  2. Hi I'm getting new alloys for my focus mk2 pre facelift. I'm lowering it 40mm with eibach pro kit springs and getting 18 inch wheels. Although I like the mk2 st alloys I don't wanna be a sheep and look like every other focus. Has anyone any idea how the mk3 rs alloys would look ?? Any pics??? Or even other suggestions, I'll post the alloys in talking about below. Thanks
  3. Ok so I'm having a fair bit of trouble with my engine. It's pretty high mileage (151800) its misfiring and the turbo is also on the way out due to carbonated oil and lack of oil changes by previous owners. It's never been the best running engine but it's got really bad in the last couple days. Because it's such a high mileage engine I'm reluctant to pump money into parts to keep the engine going when it would be cheaper to just replace it. The engine code is DVA6TED4. These engines are notoriously weak and prone to problems, would other 1.6 tdci engines fit or would they be too much hassle with different electronics? Are there newer versions of the engine that don't have the problem with the dfp causing back pressure? Any help is appreciated thanks in advance :)
  4. Hi, My diesel fiesta has just started stalling on start up. It now does it every time when the car has been left a while i.e., when the engine is cold. It will fire on the first attempt but immediately run down and konk out, with immediate repeated attempts seeing the engine turn over vigorously but not firing. At this stage there is an engine malfunction warning. If I return after 30 minutes and warily keep the engine turning over with a little pressure on the accelerator the engine usually fires. When it fires I maintain high revs until it warms up. Once warmed up the car, engine, idle speed, etc., are excellent in every way, and should I stop when warm it will restart without any difficulty. When warm the engine malfunction warning disappears.. It seems to me that as the car works perfectly when warm it must be a heat as opposed to lack of fuel, computer or pressure issue, leading me to suspect the glow plugs. The car and its glow plugs have done 80k miles. I see online that many Ford diesel car owners have suffered a similar start up issue to this but alas I cannot find a posted solution to the problem. Can anyone help with a diagnosis? The car is regularly serviced, has a brand new battery and wants for nothing. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi Guys, I've using the ODBC cable recently with forscan to get a more indepth knowledge of the health of my car. In particular I wanted to read stats on the DPF including the distance to ashful (when i'll have to fork over upwards of €1000 to replace :( ) and tracking the regens. However when I go to forscan, add the PIDs and start recording the DPF values give me nothing. Theres no pressure, 0.0, 100k km to ashfull (assume this is a default value?) and 0.0 since last regen. Is there something I'm missing here? is it my cable? I have an ELM327 cable that I got from my dad. It can read the RPM PID just fine so I assume it is working.. Im just idling in the driveway here as well but I wouldn't have thought I need to be driving to read these values.
  6. I'm in the middle of buying some lovely leather Recaros out of an Mk2 ST. However will the rear seats fit in my Mk2.5 5 door focus ? TIA
  7. Focus tdci boost problem

    Hi, having a bit of an issue, my car is grand when it's cold it has power but just as the engine starts to get warm theres absolitely no power in all gears, there's no engine light on, its not throwing a code and it's not in limp mode. From reading other forums I've been lead to believe that it might be the boost control solenoid. Does anyone know anything about this problem and could someone help me locate the solenoid, thanks a lot!
  8. Hi Guys, I am currently looking for a new car, particularly the Focus TDCi Zetec S models and I'd like some input, please. Does anyone have the service booklet for the below car? What is considered high mileage for a diesel and what should I be looking for as the car has 78k miles, and would this put you off? Can I get some opinions on the below, please? I think the price is too high, thoughts? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2010-Ford-Focus-2-0-TDCi-Zetec-S-5dr-/322641190207 All thoughts welcome. Thanks, Tom
  9. Hi All, I thought I would try and make this more open to the public as Ford seem to be doing everything they can to not tell customers about this issue. I own a 58 plate (Registered 09) Ford Focus 1.8 TDCI Duratorq, since the car was new it has suffered from 2 issues. Issue 1 - While driving on the motorway the car will have intermittent hesitations when accelerating. This will usually happen then naturally allowing the car to decrease speed by taking your foot off the accelerator then applying it again. This can also happen when just cruising in 5th. Issue 2 - This cannot be replicated however randomly you can get a violent jolt forward with the error displayed on the dash "Engine Malfunction". The car will go into limp mode then when you pull over turn the ignition off, wait a minute and start again will be cleared and free to drive normally again. My car has been into Ford for this issue during its warranty period and after it expired to be told there were error codes relating to a particular injector however they were telling me all 4 needed replacing at £1500. The issue was so intermittent and could go months without it happening I have not yet had them replaced. I cover 350 miles a week commuting and can got weeks/months with no occurrences of this. Ford have never told me about a known issue with the injectors until recently when I took my car to the Ford dealership in Eastleigh, Hampshire. One of their service department told me they were aware of a known issue with a batch of injectors ending in the part number 3. While my car was in for diagnostics they advised all 4 of my injectors ended in 3 and would need replacing at guess what... you got it £1500. I argued that surely if this was a known issue with a bad batch Ford should replace these. They said not and the car is out of warranty so I will have to foot the bill. I asked whether there was any documentation on this however they said no, even their customer services director categorically told me nothing existed after checking with their service desk. I have since found out online and from help from the guys on this forum and other that there is in fact a TSB (technical service bulletin) released by Ford documenting which cars are affected and saying what I had been told about the injectors ending in 3. The TSB is TSB 27/2012 dated 14/05/12 and affects 1.8L Duratorq-TDCi (Lynx) engines between 2008/2009. It affects the Focus, Mondeo, C-Max, Transit connect and Tourneo. The title of the bulletin is "Excessive combustion noise and or hesitation during light load acceleration with the engine at high operating temperature". I don’t believe I can post the bulletin in full due to copyright however I can pm this to anyone interested. The bulletin states that there are PCM calibrations released to try and help the injector nozzle performance however Ford failed to tell me about the TSB or the PCM calibrations once in all the times my car was in for diagnostics. I have raised a complaint with Ford regarding this however they are unwilling to replace the parts at their cost, I have told them I am willing to pay for the labour however I don’t feel I should foot the bill for the parts given they were fitted from brand new faulty. I have so far got them to discount the price from £1500 to £1100 then recently a further 30% off this price. Still not happy as still leaves me with a £6-£700 bill to replace faulty parts they fitted. I would advised contacting Mark Ovende via this email address - movende1@ford.com He is the MD at Ford Motor Company. Mark will not respond however you will get a call back from the Ford Head Office. I was initially told they wouldn’t do anything however after continuous emails and phone called I have got them to discount the total initial quote by around 50%. It appears Ford are doing whatever they can to not tell customers about this issue so they have to pay out a fortune to replace parts that were not fit for purpose. Ford should issue a recall as this affects a lot of cars and is potentially dangerous. The fact they are not even telling customers there is a PCM update which could help is shocking, the go straight for the replacements instead. A free or £95 PCM update or £1500 to replace all 4 injectors....... disgusting. I want to try let as many people know about this as I can so they dont get lied to and forced into spending thousands when a PCM update might fix it. Ford should replace these parts at their cost not the customers regardless of warranty on the car. This whole situation has put me off buying another Ford especially from the dealerships I have dealt with. Regards Allister
  10. Finally a Ford!

    Hi there It's taken me 29 years, but I have finally got myself a Ford. After growing tired of continually having my Alfa towed by the AA, I have gone and bought myself a 2008 Focus - TDCi 1.6 Zetec So far, so good It needs a few cosmetic touch ups/replacements, but I am stupidly excited to now be part of the 'family' Speak soon (though hopefully not because of problems) Also, the reg ends in FOC!! What are the chances Chris
  11. Right. Seriously not looking to start a discussion here about what tuning method is best - I know we all have different ideas based upon different experiences and different research. Originally I poopooed (heehee ) the idea of these tuning boxes, having read many horror stories about problems with engines after installing. However, this was based upon (my) zero knowledge of different tuning methods or reading myself on how these boxes work. It seems that most of the naysayers are folk who are really talking about the 'early-days' tuning boxes, ie, a resistor in a comparatively giant plastic box that eats turbos, however looking for actual reviews on Arachnids specifically there seems to be nothing but good from all walks of life, on all vehicles and for months and months after installing (presumably the owners stop banging on about it after a while but it still continues to work flawlessly!) Stephen @madmole, I'm really looking at you here - as the biggest advocate for these things (I saw what must be your review btw =)) I'm looking for as much information as you can give if that's ok? I don't really want a sales pitch as I've been on their website already, but as much detailed information about installation, setup, usage and removal (if you have) from your own personal experience as you can would be massively appreciated and just maybe, we might be able to encourage a few more folk that this could be the way to go? I've got the thing sat in a cart with the FOC30 discount code already applied (thanks for that). There was apparently a 'sp40' code for 40% off, but that's now expired. My finger is hovering over the 'pay now' button and I think I need that final push. The other thing I MUST consider is the insurance impact. My insurance already almost doubled when coming to this car from my 1.6 petrol Mk1 as I was halfway through the year and want to get the NCB (I went on my own insurance quite late on and only have 4 years). If this is going to massively hike it then it may put the kibosh on anyway cos there ain't no way in hell I'm not telling them about it. Obviously I know that noone can really tell me but my insurance company but others' experience would be welcome. Anyone else who has one, please share - good and bad. Anyone else who HAD one and went for something else with better results, please share - when and why. Anyone else who is going to tell me that it will kill my engine and not to buy one: unless you were on the design or build team for them or unless this happened to YOU and not your cousin's sister's dog's breakfast's brother; thank you but no thank you.
  12. Hi all, My 2006 Ford Focus 1.6 TDCi came up with an engine systems failure message today just coming off of a dual carriageway (70mph) accompanied by a red light next to the trip computer. I think it went into limp mode (severly reduced power, unwiling to rev much), so not good when you live at the top of a hill! Two other times when starting the car it has briefly displayed an error message (once it said "steering assist failure", and yesterday it came up with the same engine systems failure message"). Both times I have restarted the car and it disappeared. The car is a 2006 on an 06 plate, and has currently done 73500 miles. I bought it last may at 65000 miles, and it had a service just before I bought it. As it had just turned 6 years old/65000 miles, I'm presuming the DPF would have been changed then? Does anyone have any idea what's wrong? Thanks in advance, Minnis
  13. Hello, would anyone per chance happen to have a wiring/pin out dagram for a bosch pcm/ecu 7m51-12a650-ua Many thanks in advance for any assistance ( :
  14. I have a mk2 '07 2.0 TDCI. I've had it for a six weeks or so and I rather like it. Apart from the stupid bonnet lock thing. Seriously, the ford engineer who designed that needs to be dragged into their foyer and strung up as a warning to their other engineers. >_< I've just removed the EGR pipe, blanked the valve end with plate and gasket, and the inlet manifold with a plug and o-ring. I didn't actually know what to expect from this, but as I don't have a DPF in my exhaust and the kit only cost me £17, and it was easily reversible, I thought I'd give it a go. Interestingly, as I didn't know what to expect, it does seem a bit smoother and crisper, less of the pogo effect off from a standing start, but will drive it a bit more before I make up my mind. But, while I was in there I had a look at the inlet manifold where the EGR pipe would connect and there was a thick black... gunky buildup (greasy carbon?). So I took off the throttle body so I could get more access to the inlet (plenum?) and there was a LOT of gunk just in the bits I could reach with rags and a finger. We're not talk a single dirty rag bad, this was a few mm thick everywhere I could reach, including the throttle body. I went through half an old bath towel worth of rags smothered in this black nastiness, and again that was just the couple of inches I could reach. So I did what every hungry idiot does in the rain and cold (*take a guess, answer will be at the bottom of the post), and removed the inlet manifold to see what was underneath, and it looked like this - The head ports buildup is obviously more baked on and hardened, unlike the inlet which is more greasy, but that is a lot of carbon there. Is this something to be worried about, and if so, what do I need to do about it? Any help seriously appreciated. While I was last underneath it, I did notice a small (I think) oil leak at the back of the engine, but didn't have time to properly investigate. * If you guessed 'Not eating' you were right! ;)
  15. Vacuum hose?

    Whilst changing my turbo hose (the 90 degree one) I've managed to break the little black plastic pipe which comes off the turbo. I'm making the assessment that it's a vacuum pipe, and I've wrapped a whole load of tape on it for now. It seems to work OK, the turbo kicks in with seemingly no loss of power, but it's far from a permafix, so I have two questions: A) What is it? B) how much will it cost me to fix it properly? Thanks in advance
  16. Hi, i have installed a K&N 57s into my Focus MK3 ST TDCi however after a min or so the car goes into limp mode. I have checked the filter is fitted correctly and also reset the KAM but still get the same issue. Has anyone got this filter fitted to the same car and got it working? Thanks Chris
  17. After searching high and low for information on this I'm resorting to starting a new topic. I've got an EGR blanking plate ready to fit in my 2.0 engine but I can't quite figure out whereabouts it goes. I've followed the pipe down to the inlet on the front of the block but after looking at the end of the pip its evident that it cannot fit in this location (oh how easy life would be if it did). I've found a guide on here which related to either the 1.6 or 1.8 TDCi lumps but would this guide also be the same for the 2.0 engine? If it doesn't, can any of the 2.0 guys who have fitted a plate on theirs give some indication of where it does go please.
  18. Focus rear diffuser

    Hi guys sort of stuck at the minute . I have a 09 focus tdci and was curious does the st rear diffuser just bolt on ? Thanks in advance 😁
  19. Is a remap really worth it?

    I've been looking recently at Remaps for my 1.8 Tdci, but for £350 will i actually feel much difference ? What's your guys experience with Remaps? Tia
  20. Hey guys, I've recently been looking at how to change the fuel filter for my Diesel 2010 TDCi and have come back with some mixed feedback on how difficult it is and what you need to do it. This took me less than 15 minutes including me faffing around and flapping about ti going wrong. All you need is; Fresh diesel ( in a can) Turkey baster/large syringe fresh fuel filter bucket for the old filter to go in tissue That's it really, on the newer models they've made it easier to do apparently. I didn't need a pump or anything to get rid of the air in the lines or anything, I used a technique from another forum to do it and it worked a treat. Locate your filter remove the electrical fitting on the left hand side of the filter head, underneath that metal bracket. tissue at the ready to catch the overflowing diesel, there's not a lot. remove the filter head and put to one side, wide the inside because diesel sits in the top of there. lift the filter out and let it drain into your filter body. once that's done, get it into you bucket out the way. new rubber seal in and place your filter through the middle of it. with the fresh filter in, it will only partly fill, leave it for a couple of seconds to absorb some of the diesel. get your turkey baster and jerry can and start getting some diesel in there and fill it to the brim, you'll have to lift it out slightly to get as much as you can in. when your'e near the top, get some more diesel down the centre of the filter so it's full to the brim all the way round. screw the filter head back on finger tight. key in the ignition to the second position so it starts the electronics and spools the filter. repeat about 8-10 times, press the pedal if you want. then start the engine. I had no dramas doing it this way what so ever. less than 15 minutes all in. My old filter was absolutely minging, looks like it hadn't been done in the full 75K on my clock. There's all sorts of fine fibres in there which look like wet cobwebs tangled in it. What I did find was no black smoke over 2.5K revs and a much smoother rev as well. mine's just chock full of s**t i guess.
  21. Ford Focus 1.8tdci 06

    Hi I have just won a Ford Focus 1.8tdci on eBay which seller says needs a Brake Servo replacement. Is there any cause of this issue and is it advisable to go ahead buying the car, any other issues to be worried about? Thanks

  23. I have a 2009 1.6 TDCI (110BHP) with 116k miles. I got my car serviced at a local independent garage. The spec for this car if I'm not mistaken is 5W-30. On the receipt from the garage it looks like they have put in 10W-40 instead. Does this really make any realistic difference? Should I considered having this replaced to 5W-30 ASAP? I've always been under the impression it is fairly vital to stick to the spec for the car but a few people have told me that it realistically makes no difference and if I change the oil every 6k miles there is no difference. Is this true or are the people who I have spoken to overlooking this completely? I had also been extra cautious about only using 5W-30 in the past as this is my first diesel and car with a DPF. Would the have any affect on the DPF? I've heard of things such as low-ash spec oils before.
  24. Hi all, I have a 2009 focus MK2.5 1.6TDCI zetec with about 116k miles on the clock. I've just come back from work and for the first time that I've seen the 'engine malfunction' error come up on the dash. The car drove perfectly on the way home. no weird noises or limp home. When mentioning this to my wife she apparently saw the error thursday last week when she was moving my car but didnt tell me as she thought I was already aware . however I've used the car for 10+ trips since then and I didnt see anything. However since the first time I saw the error it seems to be consistent now. I've used forscan and found the following codes: PCM: Code: P0704-28 - Clutch switch input circuit malfunction Code: P2585-61 - Fuel Additive Control Module Warning Lamp Request FACM: Code: P2409-60 - Fuel Cap Sensor/Switch Circuit Range or Performance Code: P1922-60 - Fuel Additive Level Circuit Code: B1317-20 - Battery Voltage High The last time I checked codes on the car was probably 5-6 months ago. The only code then was the first one in the FACM P2409-60. I've tried resetting this and it keeps coming back. I have a feeling the magnet is missing from the fuel filler flap. This code has been there since I bought the car, 1 year ago. So I was aware of this one. It never caused any harm so I never bothered with it. Some of these codes could be old but they dont really point me into the direction that is causing the error. If the fuel additive tank needs topping up I was expecting P1927 or P1932 to be present. Any insight would really help. If it makes any difference, I'm fairly sure the DPF has been gutted on my car by the previous owner. I've also attached the DTC log for full analysis. My next course of action was going to be jacking the car up and visually looking at the additive tank to assess if it is empty or near empty. I was also going to reset all DTCs and monitor which ones reappear, i.e. presistant issues. However Im far far from an expert here which is why I came to you guys DTCs.txt
  25. Hi all, I'm fighting a losing battle against rust with my MK2 Focus saloon and starting to consider other options as a relatively cheap replacement. I know the 2.2 TDCI in the MK3 ST is the Ford Puma unit but struggling to find out if it has a dpf? (I know they fitted a DPF when it was fitted to Jaguars after a certain build date) I've enjoyed the bulletproof reliability of my 1.8 TDCI Lynx engine with no DPF and have no desire to add to the stress in my life by waiting for a DPF to block! Could any of the regulars that have had a MK3 ST TDCI or still have once confirm if the model ever had a DPF fitted?
