2007 1.8Tdci Leak Off Pipe Problem

13 February 2014 - 12:57 AM

Hi all, i did a quick search but not found 100% what looking for.


Anyway my car leak off pipe is leaking diesel from one off the leak off pipe seals. It looks like the rubber inside has got a slit (furthest one to the right hand side of the engine) and is leaking diesel. I was wondering if i could just replace the rubber if so where can i get the rubber and how do i fit it or will i need a new kit. The annoying thing is the kit already on it is only12 months old.

Hi i have been having intermittent starting problem on my car for a while. It sometimes starts and stalls then takes ages to start or starts first time now problem. I've found when i've let the engine warm its usually fine. The car is a 07 1.8tdci and it's only started happening after i had my MAF/MAP sensor replaced due to a pipe was loose on it. I purchased a used one would this cause the engine to start and stall/not start?

Faulty Sensor

Hi going back a few months ago my 1.8tdci (2007) focus temp gauge would always stay at 60 degress on my trip to and from work from a cold start (i work 1.8 miles away). Then just before alternator went on the car the gauage would rise no more than 75 degrees. Since getting the alternator changed i find that within the short journey the temp gauge will go mainly between 60 and 75 (usually half way). When its warm warm it stays just below half way never goes past but on cold start will go up and down a bit (i.e. waiting at lights). I am not loosing oil, coolant etc so just wondering if its normal or maybe a dodgy sensor.
