54 Plate Tdci Sub 0 Starting Issues

17 January 2013 - 02:45 PM

I have a 54 plate Fusion 1.4 tdci. When the outside tempreture is below zero the starter motor will only turn over for about one second then stop, it will do this for up to five or six times then it will start fine. Usually once it has started, I dont tend to get any other problems for the rest of the day.

I've had a service on it with oil and filters change, including the glow plugs, but still get the problem in sub 0 conditions. Usually when it is cold enough for the ignition coil flashes on for a second is when I get the problem. If its warm or above freezing its fine.

Any ideas???

Changing Glow Plugs

11 February 2012 - 12:24 AM

Hi, I plan on changing my glow plugs on my 1.4 tdci 2004 fusion. I have a haynes manual, but it looks like I have to dismantel most of the engine to get to the plugs, anyone got any tips or ideas?

Also, most glow plugs I know of have a nut fixing on them, but the ones that I have bought which are suppose to be for the fusion, dont have a thread on them, is this actually the correct ones?

Thank you


Ignition Coil

04 February 2012 - 08:04 PM

I have a Fusion 2004 TDCI 1.4 which starts and runs fine. However I've noticed that the ignition coil light doesnt appear to light up when I first turn the key. I still wait about 5 seconds before starting the car (I know what diesels are like) and the car starts fine. I thought maybe it was a bulb out so I performed a dashboard test and when I got to the bulbs, the ignition coil lamp shows up fine. So any ideas why the lamp works when in TEST mode, the engine starts fine, but the lamp doesnt show up on the dashboard through normal ignition procedures.

Thank you and sorry again for this being in the wrong place if it is.


2004 Fusion Tdci Windscreen

I recently purchased a 1.4 tdci 2004 fusion 2, and am wondering if the fusion 3 heated windscreen would fit and is the wiring there already like most other models of ford.
