Mate just called - he has new Focus Titanium Eco Boost 1 wk old and tonight the revs dropped very low and feels as though it's gonna cut out and burning smell ? AA told him they won't move it till tomorrow and must re book ? Not a happy chappy !!!!

a crank issue i wonder if its the sensor wiring being melted like my neighbours did. it wasnt clipped in so the wire was touching the head.

i have sympathy its not what you want or need after just a week tell him to push for a goodwill gesture...

very strange issue on a new car hopefuly he gets a quick diagnostic and fix. spoke to the neighbour and she jus said a sensor in the engine had melted the wires where it was touching the engine so im assuming its the crank sensor as her car did stall and wouldnt restart.

The dealer says sensor too ! He had just been over some speed bumps when it happened so maybe the wires had come in clipped and touching something to cause burn smell ? Cost him 25 to put the sales mans Zetec S on his insurance so told him to ask for fuel top up on his for when he collects !!!

they should have gave him a courtesy car on their insurance.it will be interesting to see what the diagnosis is and see if it may be a common issue. it does sound like the bumps dislodged something
