Focus 1.8Tdci Smokey

Morning all can I pick your brains My car has developed a fault, when I drive and the turbo starts I get a whooshing sound from the engine also lots of black smoke out the exhaust now when I drive slowly it's fine there's no smoke also I've had the engine malfunction light with the triangle come on three times now the car does not go in to limp home mode or lose any power I've looked under the bonnet and can not find any lose hoses or anything really,the car ticks over fine , I put the car in to self diagnostic mode and no codes came up any ideas thank you Colin....

Hard To Start From Cold

12 March 2013 - 06:17 PM

Hello all well I've been enjoying my focus for a while now with no trouble but in the last couple of days it's had me scratching my head, I have a make 2.5 1.8 tdci and on cold it's hard to start , I cheeked the levels and the antifreeze was low so I've topped it up ,again on cold cranking like mad then after a while she starts, could it be the glow plugs ? And are they easy to change I'm pretty good with car stuff any advice would be hugely appreciated .
