Slow Fuelling/strange Noise

25 June 2013 - 11:56 AM

Hello everyone!


Has anyone experience an issue filling there Fords with fuel? my 2010 1.6 TDCI Focus for the last 2 months has become a ball ache to fill up with diesel! I literally have to fill at a snails pace or else the pump just clicks like its full, I've tried 5 different petrol stations of different brands and still the same issue.


I also have a strange noise coming from the back right in the last month (coincidently near the fuel nozzle) when I go over bumps and pot holes I can hear something rattling.


I had my 3 year service last month and reported the issues to Allen ford, they put it down to me refuelling incorrectly even though I've had no issues in 2 and a half years!

and the rattling was a suspension brush which they lubricated to stop the rattle, as soon as I left the garage the rattle began again so there basically useless.


Any thoughts?

Thanks to Steve's guide on how to remove the Lip i thought id give it a go and I'm very pleased with it and recommend it to anyone with a MK2.5 Focus.

Diesel Remapping Or Bluefin Chips?

15 July 2012 - 02:16 PM

Hey everyone,

Has anyone had any experiences with the above? I have enquired at a local Ford specialist Grahamgoode.com and they have told me that they only offer the bluefin chip at 399.99. Which will give my focus an extra 21bhp. Anyone reckon it's worth it?
