Just got back from a 3.5 hr journey from Cornwall to Dorset, about 170 miles and as I was going round the roads leading up to my house it sounded like the fan was on.
I pulled up to our gate and as I got out, the fan must have been on full blast, I could literally feel a strong draught sucking through to the radiator. The temperature reading on the dash was normal, the needle right in the middle.
The fan on its own wouldn't have particularly bothered me as I had been driving pretty hard on the way back, but then I noticed the exhaust sounded odd, I put my hand behind the exhaust and it felt like the engine was misfiring, with big pops of air, almost spluttering.
After about 10-20s of idle it stopped. Exhaust pressure was perfectly smooth and fan turned off completely.
I have heard of the fan running during a regen, although the car seemed to wait a long while into the journey to do it, but not the spluttering exhaust. I guess if it is that, the car must be somehow creating extra pops of pressure to try and clear the dpf, but I don't want to just assume that is the case.
Every now and then I check up on how the 2014/5/6..? Mustang is coming along. Basically the next one, which will be a global car (as with all new Fords) and officially sold in the UK as RHD (coRrect Hand Drive). I know I'm going to really want one of these when it comes out, I just hope Ford keep them reasonably priced and not make only the £30k+ expensive versions available over here.
Couldn't see anyone else had posted pics, so thought I would share the latest spy shot from Car Magazine. It's looking to be real purdy imo.
My 2012 Focus Titanium X 2.0 TDCi after her first wash, the weekend after I picked it up. Completely stock at this point, just with the Appearance Pack (Keyless Entry & Privacy Glass) and Sat Nav & Reversing Camera as factory fit extras.
