In Topic: Focus Diesel Sudden Power Loss Then Stall

I wasn't expecting it to be that expensive. It didn't happen all at once. They'd repair one thing and I thought it's sorted now but it wasn't. I'd invested so much in the car, it seemed right to do it.

Had I foreseen the situation, I'd have jacked it in and got shot right at the start. Lol -_-

The total bill with everything came to just over £1200 with parts and labour. -_-

After all of that, the service is due now and MOT next month! Lol.

I usually use Morissons fuel. I think the problem with the power loss was down to a catalogue of problems.

The oil filter ruptured due to vibration / rubbing.

Turbo was connected to the engine block without a gasket.

The intercooler pipe was badly split in a difficult to see place.

All of these issues are apparently quite common (except missing gasket).

This was all very expensive along with getting the DPF replaced!

Seems to be great now it's sorted.

Been a long time but I removed the expensive after market audio and put the ford one back with the addition of the IO Play 2 audio system. It works alongside the car audio.

All problems immediately ceased. It appears these cars can't cope with not having it's own audio installed.
