In Topic: New Project For Mk6

the engine will fit in no bother and run fine also with all the same sensors etc but you wont see much gain out of it unless you get a 1.4 ecu to run it also.,,

all those engines are the same aslone as they are the black rocker cover, ive recently put a 1.6 focus engine into a 1.4 ghia because i didnt have any 1.4's left, and left it runing from the 1.4 ecu.. run alot quicker but if i had have got a zs fiesta ecu it would have all the potensal.

personally id put a 16 into it as it wont be of any or much of a differnt cost and then hunt the breakers and get a zetec s key ecu and clocks and give it a proper upgrade as it will run with the same wiring loom.

you could do the rear wiper arm to the flush plastic arm and blade, think its an astra rear arm and a 08 onwards blade. though i think you can buy a bosh arm and blade the exact size now rather than shoping around for both seperate.

In Topic: Fiesta Zetec 1.4 Tdci Cam Belt Change

24 August 2012 - 08:55 PM

the cam belt on a 1.4 tdci is 125,000 though id change it a little earlier and its best to change it as a kit changing bearings/tensioners also as these can fail as well as the belt brake.

In Topic: Flood Damaged Egnine

having fixed hundreds of ford flood damaged engines from the newer engines rite back to the older engines i can tell you that only a small amount of water was injested and has bent the piston connecting rod ever so slightly and most likely rite across the line and thats why your engine runes fine and doesnt seam out of power, basicly changing the timing slightly but not enough to cause upset, now for the ticking, a complete over haul or engine replacement is your only way out because what has happened is the rod is bent ever so slightly so that when the piston is rising to top dead center the rod is not interfering but tapping the bottom of the cylender and thats the tap, if its out of your own pocket drive on as it mostlikely wont fail rather just annoy you. if it fails your going to need a replacement lump(bottom end)

In Topic: Ford Fiesta 1.4Tdci 2004.. Injectors And Turbo Fault (Also Injector Part Numb...

1.4 will not need re codeing and dont worrie about the part numbers as long as the makes are all kept the same.. use another set of copper washers as the last ones have been squashed to the tightening point for the prevous seal, also if you didnt replace the locating shim the last time replace it this time, thats the plastic spacer part at the top of the injector when fitted as that stops any movement to gain a better seal.
