Focus Fuel consumtion/temp computer extra info

17 April 2009 - 04:04 PM

While sitting in a traffic jam today I was messing around with the consumption computer.
When I held the S button down for >4 seconds the computer constantly bleeps and shows all segments of the lcd display.
If you keep pressing S you seem to get a load of extra data including what looks like remaining fuel in LTR and Gallons, something that might be pressure in the manifold, and a few others that I have no idea on.
Any knowledge of this anyone?

How often do Ford change the oil filter?

22 March 2009 - 12:18 PM

I have just replaced the accessory belt on my tdci Focus and noticed the oil filter looks like it has not been changed in ages. As Ford mechanics would never consider not changing the filter :ph34r: I was wondering how often they are supposed to be replaced?
Shall I give the engine a flush do you think?

More power from the 1.8 tdci

04 March 2009 - 11:05 AM

I am looking for a cheap way to get some more power from the focus 1.8 tdci and have seen a number of in line boxes that install between the fuel pressure sensor and the ECU. There are a number of them for sale on the famous auction site but is there a better option without spending more than 100?

OBD II On Focus Diesel 2003

26 February 2009 - 05:58 PM

I am very confused with data I am finding on the net. According to a number of sellers selling the ELM327 on the famous auction site, my 2002 tdci 1.8 is not OBD compatible. However there is a OBD port below the steering wheel.
Is this an OBD port? Anyone have a clue what software will work if it is?

Focus TDCI down on power when cold.

14 February 2009 - 08:00 PM

I have noticed my focus seems to have little power until the coolant temperature has reached half way on the scale, which can take 15 miles if the temp outside is below 0C. Is this normal for this car? The engine runs fine apart from that.
