Refitting new plugs won't stop it the plugs have a foam seal this saturates and leaks only sealing them will solve the issue been there done that sometimes they work for a bit then leak again poor design plain and simple ford know this

Hey guys new to fourm!

 

I have a 2007 focus, 1.6 petrol.  Noticed the power steering gets really heavy to the point where there is none at all when the engine isn't under load.

 

Am I to fear the worst that it's going to be a new power steering pump?

 

Thanks

I have a 2009 ford focus zetec 1.6.. When i got it, it sounded fine, then it started to sound a bit tapperty. So i serviced it (new plugs. Oil/oil filter. Air filter) and it was still tapperty? I serviced it again today and no change! The engine splutters now and again aswell and it is idling at 900 and sounds like a diesel with the bonnet open! Is this common? And how do i fix it any ideas?

P0087/P1180 Fuel pressure low I would suspect a dodgy fuel filter.

my missus 56 plate 1.6tdci kept cutting out ONLY under heavy throttle and all sorts of odd codes popped up, it used to cut out saying power assist failure, I replaced the fuel filter and tickety boo all sorted , and been good the past 6 months.

 

The Diesel Really does require a regular fuel filter change and I keep to that now.

Need to get this fixed too:

The heated windscreen can fail on one side either its a simple fuse issue to which there are 2 1 for each side or some cars under the scuttle panel have the electrical ribbon loose which gets rubbed by the wipers when in motion causing it to fail.
