MK5 Fiesta td strange fault

26 November 2009 - 09:13 PM

Hi, could anyone shed some light on my problem, i have a 2001 1.8td Fiesta van that has just hit 30,000 miles today, i had been on the road for 2 minutes this morning when all of a sudden my van lost 1/2 power (felt as if turbo had failed) and at the same time i noticed that the fan had come on, there were no warning lights or anything, i lifted bonnet to check it wasn't too hot and engine bay was fairly cold as it was first drive of the day, i stopped van for a few seconds and restarted and all was ok, i then travelled 30 miles with no probs, i thought at first the handbrake could have been sticking and causing it to run hot and feel as if it was lacking power but it seems free with no binding at all, any thoughts or ideas?, thanks, Steven

Hi, i need to change a rear wheel bearing in a 2003 festa and was wondering if it is a diy job or not, i have heard they can be a nightmare to press out, any ideas?, does anyone know the procedure?. Thanks,

Hello, just out of curiosity, how long should my thermostat take to open at idle on my 1.8 td fester van on an average May evening?, cheers.

Mk6 1.4 eating catalytic converters

10 April 2009 - 10:27 AM

Hi, i have a 2003 i.4 zetec fester.

The engine light illuminated a few months ago and was diagnosed by GK Ford Carlisle as having a blocked cat, we had a cat fitted supplied by TMS motor spares, about a month later the light has come back on and Ford have diagnosed once again a faulty cat, is there any common faults with the mk6 that would cause it to damage cats i.e. running rich etc, it does use a very small amount of oil but nothing other than normal usage, it had new lambda sensors, plugs and ht leads when cat was fitted, it's currently on very thin ice as we've had it 4 months with nothing but trouble!, cheers.
