Got towed home then straight to garage in the morning.
Soon as mechanic seen the diesel particulate filter he said thats your problem these cars are prone.
Took it apart anyway and yes he was right he does them all the time, so also need a new turbo as there was no indication its was on its way out.
Anyone else had these problems.
Anyway i got brand new turbo 6 month warranty £290
He said because they were cheap it may last 6 months.
So heres my main question sell or NOT?
Heard the ones without dpf are slugish but they are reliable just like a bit of power.

Why are 2.0 turbos prone to go aswell?

No dpf to worry about.

had mine on track a couple of times and it kept up with a few things... BMW 325 and honda s2000 are my most surprising moments!

the 1.8 is awesome remapped... think i timed mine about 7.5ish 0-60, but after that it still keeps pulling right up to...... 70mph of course..

you still on about diesels?,because thats quick for a cheap diesel.
I bought the 1.6 because there cheaper to run, diesel and tax but end up paying more on parts and mechanics oh well its getting traded in.

Does a chip do the engine any good and what if the mileage is quite high my 57plate focus has 112,000 miles.
I seem to buy them cheap with the high mileage..
