Hi guys. It might be a very long shot in a dark but I will try. I've heard ppl talking that in 1.8tdci ford diesel engines fuel injector failure is very common. Who could clear this out for me ? :) and how I can prevent them from failure? I fill my focus with shell nitro+ diesel I assume that helps lol

the only problem i have had with the injectors is the seals *4, (chuffing noise) but i recon this is just wear n tear.... whilst they were out and being re-seated i had them cleaned and spray tested......... diagnosic read/clear n re fitted

They are ok I have no probs at mo but sone ppl really scared me of saying u bought a bag of ........ injectors fail on the most of the times an so on. I've heard about 1.6 and 2.0 that they not well built I though that 1.8 would be the best

ur right about the 1.8tdci its the best solid lump going...... if the injectors do go, then its only wear and tear.... the only thing i can suggest is good proper fuel, and maybe a injector cleaner of some sort, along with every service..... so like a bottle of red-x twice a year, and fuel filter once a year, oil/air filter n oil twice a year.......

I use shell nitro+ diesel. I've just changed fuel filter etc. I do think of buying wyyns injector cleaner which goes straight into fuel filter to prevent any dirt from a tank blocking injectors.

Thank you for your answer :) oh there's another thing. When I put my foot down I've noticed some black smoke coming out of exhaust. I know it's diesel it should have some coming out.but I guess because it stud at dealers yard for at least 3-4 month need a bit time.
P. S I never drive away before engine was running for at least 5 min. Should I wait longer?

i wait around 1 min, just time for oil to circulate...  black smoke is common, now if there is excessive then maybe a problem.... 1 of the cheapest and most beneficial mods you can do is purchase a egr valve SOLID blanking plate, this costs around 4 quid of the bay and doesnt throw any eml lights up.... this will help with turbo lag, better economy, better pull off, less smoke, more mpg (in some cases) cleaner running and the inlet wont get choked up of carbon deposits..... this is a must... please do.. order 1 tonight..... straight forward fitment under 5 mins......

My car doesnt go over 80mph and I have the same car. Itstarts shaking a misfiring like crazy when I try and simply wont go. Could it be an injector fault?

possibly but it sounds like something else, when was it last serviced?

 

Might be worth starting your own thread in the focus section so that we can help you specifically!

Hello a lot of common problems I come across with the diesel from 2006 focus onwards is the diesel particulate filter clogging up and causing no end of trouble , bad design on a lot of the newer diesel models , also not many of them doing the "regen" process as specified within the set up

That's why I chose the 1.8 mk2.
No DPF to worry about.
