#507761 Focus Mk2 Cam Belt

You can replace the belt with a chain: Video is about the Mondeo but the engine is the same (at least on that side)

#504726 Hassen's Ford Focus 1.6 Tdci Build Thread

Posted by IINexusII on 21 July 2015 - 08:48 AM

 

Thought the Prius was FWD? Or I'm I mistaken?

 

I don't think it would be any good on a motorway as it was designed for city driving. Noisy and not fuel efficient at motorway speeds, if and when it decides to reach 120km/h :P

 

yeah the electric engine only goes upto 25 or 30mph? its a taxi car here in london, on the motorway it will just be a 1.5l petrol engine

Another thing with any ford car though is that youll get the heated front windscreen (i think skoda and VW have it too now)




#504350 Hassen's Ford Focus 1.6 Tdci Build Thread

Posted by IINexusII on 20 July 2015 - 09:51 AM

if i were you id go for the bmw e90 :ph34r:

 

i do about 70 miles a day and i do get annoyed by the road noise, and sometimes getting stuck in traffic makes me feel like i should get an automatic. i was thinking to myself to maybe get an older e39 525d/530d, whcih is probably much less economiical but it will probably be much more comfortable and relaxing to drive :rolleyes: those cars were designed for motorway driving and have very good sound insulation

 

but then you have done alot of mods to your focus so it must be hard trying to let it go!




#503351 Focus 1.8 Tdci Fault Codes

Posted by IINexusII on 16 July 2015 - 08:59 PM

put the blanking plate on and also change the fuel filter, then see if the problem re-occurs.

 

im at 152K now with EGR blanked off and fuel filter replaced every 20k miles and no fuel rail issues yet, also running with a bluefin remap

#499654 1.8tdci Juddering At Idle

Posted by IINexusII on 01 July 2015 - 12:08 PM

yeah i had the sachs flywheel and clutch installed too.. and mine is gone after 10k

 

it could be, but if the mount was bad you would be getting knocking when changing gears

 

going to be changing my dmf/clutch next year and ill be getting LUK this time, as thats what Ford used originally




#499419 How Much Oil Is Required For Change?

Posted by IINexusII on 30 June 2015 - 02:48 PM

a5 is technically better as its higher in spec but if its alot more in price dont worry about it. your car was designed to work with the A1 spec so itll work fine, however if you can get it the same price then why not

 

i purchase the A5 spec from here: http://www.fordparts...2265_c_1044.htm

 

its 5 litres and the whole bottle is enough for me




#499377 Aircon Intervals For Focus?

Posted by IINexusII on 30 June 2015 - 12:27 PM

i think its recommended to get it recharged every 2 years, keeps it nice and lubed up, you should also use it at least once a month to keep the thing working and not drying up

 

£32 is very cheap for a clean + regas, i would go for it especially with the heatwave incoming




#498310 Will Mk2 Facelift Alloys Fit On Non Facelift Mk2?

Posted by IINexusII on 25 June 2015 - 01:02 PM

yep 17" are fine, just remember that tyre prices are much higher than 16" ones :D




#498212 Will Mk2 Facelift Alloys Fit On Non Facelift Mk2?

Posted by IINexusII on 25 June 2015 - 08:09 AM

yes they will, the car is exactly the same mechanically. I have the MK2.5 17" alloys fitted to mine as you can see in the profile pic

on the donor car, clip the lead onto a ground near the battery, i think thats the best practise
