Hello.

 

Im after some advice about servicing.This is my first Focus.

 

Short story on history:

I purchased a 1.8 TDCI late 2005 Focus back in Feb. Advertised with FSH.

After getting the car home, I could not locate the sevice book. Seller could not locate it.

No biggie

 

So, I want to get it serviced.

Car is just hitting 90k miles

 

What items should I get done.

 

Obviously Oil change and filter (what type of oil?)

Air Filter ( is it a round one or a flat rectangular one?) Anyone used K&N filter or am I wasting money

Fuel Filter? Which type? I have been quoted £18-£45 depening which one

Glow Plugs (smoking when cold starting recently - now warmer weather not noticable - when should I change?

 

Anyone recommend an inexpensive location to have this done in Bedford or Milton Keynes ( or a national company name?)

Alternativly - are these things easy to do - Last car I tinkered with was a Mk3 Escort back in the early 90'!

 

The Cam belt was changed last September, and last week I had the DMF & Clutch changed.

 

Car has to last me a few years so I want to ensure I look after it.

 

All suggestions greatly welcomed.

 

Thanks

 

Glenn

oil - 5w30 (5.6 litres with filter change)

mine is a rectangular one, but check inside your engine. - KN in my opinion is waste of money

fuel filter - basically its the round paper cartridge with rubber seal...check my link in sig

 

Glow plugs - use google for videos on how to test, if faulty replace.

 

clean the EGR, this can cause problems on this engine.

 

These are all easy if you have a haynes and some common sense :lol:

Cleaned EGR. Big difference straight away. Serviced with new oil, filter, fuel and air filter. Goes like a rocket now :-)

You'll find a new fuel filter every year will be a good idea
The 1.8 seems to be hard on fuel filters and a manky filter causes an engine system fault warning when it clogs
Other than that it's bullet proof.
