Hi all,

I am a current owner of a Ford Mondeo 2.2tdci Tit X which has been an awesome car however I am looking at something slightly cheaper to run.

I have seen a 2008 1.6 110 bhp tdci Focus which I like the look of however I am a bit put off about all the things I am hearing about turbo and dpf problems. Can anybody give me some feedback about the diesel engine.

Thanks in advance

Tony

From what I gather this, and the 90bhp version both suffer from turbo issues so it's something to be wary of as you say. I read that it's down to both insufficient oil supply due to the feed pipe becoming blocked and also a faulty injector seal on cylinder 3 allowing diesel to get into the oil if memory serves. Makes it sludgy and thus prone to repeat failure unless the leak is fixed and the sump is removed and cleaned out etc.

Hoping the later 115 version that I have doesn't suffer the same fate......

Hmm thanks for the info, think I will be steering clear.
