Rising Oil

01 November 2011 - 02:07 AM

I bought a 1.8 diesel 2006 focus in July after a few weeks I checked the oil and noticed it was much higher than the level so drained some out then after another few weeks did an oil change , from when I had it the warning light kept coming on and took it to a dealer who said I needed a new turbo which was done and had failed due to soot. I got the car home and checked the oil level again and was again higher than the mark? Anyone got any ideas??
Thanks in advance

Turbo Problems

01 October 2011 - 04:10 AM

Hello ,

im new to this so sorry if in wrong section

Bought a focus 2006 1.8 td a few months ago and it does have some warranty on it but i have to pay and claim back , however the engine light keeps coming on so took it to ford and the problem is P0299 turbo under boost , they had it 2 days and couldn't find the fault and said it was ok , paid the diagnostic drove it that night and comes on again!! they said to try it for a few days and if happened poss look at new turbo. Trouble is there , touch wood so far, is no loss in power, smoke that would suggest the turbo could be on way out it drives fine??! anyone help?!

thanks in advance
