#436175 Focus 1.8 Tdci Duratorq Issue

Posted by IINexusII on 12 December 2014 - 11:51 AM

you must be there when they run the tests, and make sure you watch the device they use to test, otherwise they will make you buy something you don't need

#435971 Cambelt + Water Pump Costs

Posted by IINexusII on 11 December 2014 - 05:00 PM

his car is nearing the 100k mark, there are usually no signs of the cam belt wearing, until the thing snaps and takes the engine along with it.


in my case i bought the car around 105k, and only found out the water pump was leaking a few weeks later, i replaced the cam belt along with it.


personally i wouldnt go up to 100k again, 80k is a good time to change

The only thing with the 1.8 diesel is the DMF failures and fuel injectors at 100k+ mileages, apart from that it is nice. EGR blank is the first mod to do.


but to be honest if i were to purchase again, id look for the 2.0 tdci. i would love having a 6th gear on the motorway, but then its made by peugeot...

#429599 1.8 Tdci 2010 Focus, Turbo Problem

Posted by IINexusII on 19 November 2014 - 10:24 AM

the dealers will charge you over 100 for a filter replacement. the filter should cost around £20 for the genuine ford one and it can be done in less than half an hour so i would go to a cheaper garage to get it replaced or change it yourself.


make sure that you or the garage fills the filter housing to the brim with diesel and you shouldnt have any issues starting it up

#426295 1.6 Tdci Turbo Protection

Ford dont recommend using oil flushing additives, 


There is a magnetic sump bolt which you can get that can collect metal bits as the oil is flowing around, and it will come out with the old oil on an oil change, something i use myself and does pick up alot of tiny fragments

Best protection is to sell it and get a 1.8  :D  


#423824 Oil Change What To Use

Posted by IINexusII on 29 October 2014 - 01:48 PM

get the EGR blanked and get your injectors tested, i wouldnt put any oil additives in the engine itll probably make things worse
