#448814 Mot On Monday

Posted by IINexusII on 26 January 2015 - 05:38 PM

im suprised how many people are worried about MOT's for this car


since owning mine the only issues i've had are advisories, one for a nail in a tyre and the other for a worn out number plate. my second MOT last year was a clean sheet


next one due at the end of feb 

#445402 Ice/snow And Brake Grinding Noise

Posted by IINexusII on 17 January 2015 - 01:53 PM

thats how the abs works i think, makes that sound.


youll also feel that the brake pedal doesnt go all the way, it sort of restricts your pressure

#440109 What Are The Oem Tyres On A Mk2.5 Focus?

Posted by IINexusII on 29 December 2014 - 09:09 AM

Im not sure about the goodyears, put them on my front two a few months ago (205/50/17 93W XL) and they dont feel any grippier than my part worn Avon ZV5's i had before. didnt notice any difference in noise either.

#436175 Focus 1.8 Tdci Duratorq Issue

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

Plus the 1.8 responds best to remapping ;)


something i am interested in doing in the next couple of months :D

#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

#435959 1600 Or 1800 Diesel

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

Posted by IINexusII on 07 November 2014 - 05:51 PM

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
