I have a 2006 Ford Focus 1.6 TDCI. When i keep a steady speed the engine chugs and the rev gauge jumps up and down. I took it to my local ford garage and they found oil in the MAF sensor and cleaned it out. For a few weeks it was running fine until it slowly got back to the way it was. I have been to ford 3 times now to clean it until they finally said i need a new breather pipe that would fix the problem so i told them to install it. It still does the exact same thing so i took it to a ford specialist garage and they said the oil was from my turbo and eventually it will break. I then went back to ford and told them what the garage said and they issued a letter to me from their head office stating not to fix the turbo when this problems occurs but still cannot find the cause of the oil. Can anyone help me with this problem so i can tell ford exactly where to look as i believe they are not telling me the full story because i have read alot of bad things about the 1.6 TDCI engine. Thanks

id put money on turbo ive got one to do tomorrow. problem is oil thickens like sludge and turbo supply pipe and oil pick up in sump starts to get blocked resulting in turbo being starved of oil, turbo seals failing and usually ending up with a snapped turbo shaft. PLEASE TAKE NOTE most garages will buy and fit a recon turbo....shortly after SNAP!! another turbo needed. CORRECT REPAIR remove sump and clean pickup and pan>fabricate and join turbo supply and return pipes>flush engine and change oil and filter as many times as needed until the oil being drained is still golden. fit new turbo oil feed pipe and banjo bolts>fill turbo with oil and crank engine (without starting) until oil produced from turbo feed pipe>connect feed pipe to turbo>connect a piece of pipe to turbo oil return and run it down into a measuring jug>start car like this and allow to idle for 60 seconds (ford quote 300mls but you should have more like 400mls) pour oil back in car and test 3 times. if happy reconnect pipe check oil level and leave ticking over for half hour.(make sure car has water and cooling fan works and keep an eye on temp) after 30 mins turn off-recheck oil level-cross fingers and road test. dont thrash car hard for a thousand miles ish. the alternative to this method is as follows.....buy and fit new turbo, drive car until it snaps, :( buy and fit another turbo THEN FOLLOW MY ADVICE. if you are paying a garage to fix your car ask what they will do....if they say just fit new turbo find another garage that knows ford tdci and mitsubishi turbo combination or print this page and give it as a works instruction to garage. mods consider making a sticky with this how-to, regards steve
