Just got my first ford and very pleased so far - early days though. have tried to do service - filters and oil change but only got as far as removing top and bottom trays. it's a 2lit focus 2005 durotorq tdci estate. need a bit of advice -

1. sump plug - is this half way up side and if so do you need a pump or something to drain engine
2. when removing air filter can this damage sensor
3. are fuel and oil filters obvious cause from the limited view i got coundn't see
4. do haynes have workshop manual for this type yet cause cant seem to find one

hope someone has some advice for me that will save me running to a garage.

cheers

The sump plug is on the side like you say. Most fords are 13mm but a think yours might b an allen key (7 or 8mm). Make sure your engines nice and warm before you take it out and let it drain naturally.

If you've got a canister oil filter it will be above the passengers side drive shaft (should be white) Your more likely to have a paper filter tho. This is found when looking from the top of the engine. Quite near the front just right of centre. Can be quite difficult to spot when you don't know what you're looking for. Its a black plastic cap with a 27mm (might be a 32mm) sort of plastic nut on the top.

Cant quite remember where the fuel filter is but a think is in the same sort of place as the fiesta diesels (could be wrong) Its on the left hand side towards the back. Its got a black metal plate half surrounding it. Hope this helps

Cheers Gaz,

Found fuel filter day after posting and found oil filter from your description. When you say warm engine and let oil drain naturally does that mean you don't need a vacuum pump.

You should always change oil when the engine is nice and warm with any car.

Ive never used a pump or herd of anyone using one. Ford certainly don't use one at the dealership down my way.

Glad to help. Anything else just ask ;)
