Mk7 Turbo Question

3 posts in this topic

Hi all,

This is my first post, and im just wondering something......

I have a 2009 (09) 1.6 TDCI.

Ive heard lots of horror stories about the turbos failing on the engine due to the engineering between the hoses, the sump and the turbo (its the same as in the mini, pug hdi, citroen etc ive been told?) From what ive read it seems that they are "garrett" (if ive spelt right) turbos.

However.....

After looking at my engine and turbo, nowhere does it state garrett on the turbo body it just states various numbers.

Also there are marks on the bolt heads and bolt housing, where it looks to me they have been marked for the correct torque settings for when the turbo unit is removed and put back on.....Why would someone do this for a car with 23k on the clock?

Ive taken a photo so you can see (i hope its right size etc for the forum as i dont know how to scale it)

Also do the new TDCI units still suffer with this problem of turbo failure, as again when reading i get mixed responces. Some people say yes but only on focus and others say no, it was rectified on the MK7, and then there are people who say yes the turbo fails on all TDCI's

Please help/advice

Cheers

Liam

the markings are done when it is first assembled, so they know they did the bolt up, they will be all over the car

cheers, i was just wondering if someone else had done it post factory.

Well it drives fine, and i spoke to a mechanic who recommends an oil service every 6 months outside of guidlines just to be safe (and for £25 i think its worth it!)

Beautiful fiesta fordpartsman! :-)
