2006 Fiesta Tdci Zetec S Turbo Pipe Sucking In Flat ??

4 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

Ive just purchased a fiesta tdci 1.6 zetec 6 about a week ago, And have had nothing but problems with it, I got all the injector seals replaced by Hendy ford in eastleigh southampton. And they also told me the glow plugs need replacing as this come up on the diag. However driving it last night the car felt like it went into limp mode but with NO LIGHTS on th dash.

I pulled over opened the bonnett and the rubber hose/pipe coming from the bottom of the intercooler in to the turbo (i think ) was getting sucked in flat when the car was reved.

Its the top part of the pipe going into something under the air box i think.

Has anyone hear of this problem befor.

I was thinking,

1.week hose and needs replacing.

2.blocked inter cooler

3. turbos Sh***d and needs replacing.

The turbo does sound ok etc and i can hear it working.

When the hose is sucked in there smoke what comes from exhaust and wont rev above 2000 rpm.

Please help.

The hose has just given up the ghost, fit a set of sillicone ones and you'll not get that problem again.

Is this a common problem then. ? Hoping it is just a hose.

Standard hoses can perish and lose integrity.

Not common but does happen.

Silicone ones are stronger and far less likely to cause problems.

Samco hoses seen to have a good rep.
