Hi John

 

Glad they helped.

 

As for the oil that's to be expected so nothing to worry about there.

Thought I'd post an update, since cleaning the valve body as described above, touch wood, I've not had any issues since.
One, very happy man :-)
Thanks to all that helped

John - glad to hear this seems to have solved it for you, and happy to know it's not just me to have experienced it!

 

Naz - it's called an anti shudder valve. If you give it a quick search you'll find quite a lot about it, but more often related to VAG cars. There are pictures of location on the previous page, but it's not something you'd find on a petrol car though (unless I'm very much mistaken).

Hi Sam

 

All diesel models should have this valve. Easiest thing is to look under the bonnet!

Thank you for posting here about your experiences. I bought a car (4 yrs used) on Sat and it broke down on Sunday. RAC couldn't get it started and it was taken to garage. Garage managed to get it started although intermittent starting problems as described by others here. No errors on diagnostics. Warranty wouldn't cover Main Dealer, garage couldn't find a solution and said only main dealer could fix it. Car Dealer did offer to pay Ford Dealer costs but it was completely impossible for me to get out of work to move car across.

 

Anyway, researched online and found this thread and asked garage to check out this butterfly valve on the air intake. They did and it I had a phone call from garage calling me a Superhero. They tried cleaning it but that didnt make much of a difference so they replaced the valve. Problem sorted!

 

Thank you for sharing this information.

Old post I know but I'm having the same problem.
I have cleaned the throttle body although it wasn't that dirty it did get stuck a few times when pushed closed, is there any way of testing this on the car to see if it closes correctly or closes at all.

I have a focus c max 2.0tdci.

You should try undoing the jubilee clip and disconnecting the fat hose and have someone else start the car a few times and watch the flap. It should o ly close while the engine shuts off. If it sticks, that's your prolem. Good luck.

I'll give that a go.

Thanks.

Anyone know the cost of the new valve?

On the pictures on previous page, just below the dip stick is a cap with a pipe coming from it I Beileve it to be the turbo pressure pipe, underneath that is also another cap, can anyone tell me if there is a pipe connected to this??

Thanks.
