Any Etis Experts In Here ? (Got A Pcm Update Available)

25 July 2014 - 11:29 AM

I just checked ETIS for my car, and it says an update is available for the powertrain control module (PCM) - does anyone know what these kind of updates contain ?


Or in other words: Is it worth it to go to a garage and get the update ?

Is The Aircon In Fiesta Ecoboost Just Poor ?

22 July 2014 - 08:54 PM

I've got a 2013 Ecoboost ZS 1.0, which is fitted with manual air condition (not climate control)


My wife's got a 2014 Ford Ka, which is also fitted with manual air condition.


When I press the A/C switch in the Fiesta, it takes around a minute before the air cools even slightly.


When my wife presses the A/C switch in her Ka, it cools in about 2-5 seconds.


Also the temperature doesn't really get all that cold in the Fiesta.



So before I contact the dealership I want to know if the Fiesta's air condition just is this poor ? (No point wasting their and my time, if it cannot be helped)

Does The Fiesta Store Driving Habits ?

18 July 2014 - 10:46 AM

A colleague of mine mentioned that his Mini stores his driving habits, and if you've been driving it slow/carefully you'd get a much sharper throttle response from resetting these stored habits.


I was wondering if this could be the same on the Fiesta?


The reason is: I find the throttle response very slow on the 1.0 ZS - the turbo takes a long time (IMHO) to spool up, even when doing around 3.000 rpm.


I did drive it very carefully when it was new - no more than 3.000 rpm for the first 1.000 miles or so, and never full throttle until around 2.000 miles.




So has anyone tried something similar?



EDIT: Now that it's run in (and has been for a while - it's done around 7.500 miles) I'm driving it a bit harder, and this is when the throttle response is annoying me.

Which Engines Will Be Available With The New Focus 2015?

09 July 2014 - 11:42 AM

Just curious if anyone knows whether the 1,6 ecoboost or the 1,5 ecoboost (from the Fusion) will be available on the new Focus for next year ?


So far all I can find is the 1,0 ecoboost and the ST version - it seems like a rather large gap to me, so I'm hoping they bring in something in-between.

Anyone Got Some Times For Overtaking Accelerations ?

27 April 2014 - 06:54 PM

I've got the 125bhp Zetec S ecoboost, and I was wondering what acceleration times are for e.g. 50-70, 30-50 etc. (The common overtaking accelerations)


Does anyone know of some official numbers, or a test which has these numbers ?


EDIT: There are theoritical times here, still I'd like some measured times as well  :)  (Link: http://www.automobil..._titanium.html)
