#248066 Focus Tdci Has No Oil Pressure At All

Posted by Captaintess on 31 March 2013 - 09:07 AM

Hi Guys, just a quick update on the focus! Checked the camshaft and bearing shells, show no sign of wear and tear! took off the oil pump and this seems to working ok, took it apart and shows no sign of wear and all parts are complete! very concerned now as i feel that the bottom end may have perished! waiting for a bit of sunshine before i pull the engine out!


Been looking into this and i cannot find anywhere where the oil pressure is zero! 5psi is low but the was nothing! i checked the oil pressure tester on another car and the tester works ok.


Thanks guys

Hi, i assume you mean the camshaft bearing shells, the camshaft was polished and the shells showed no signs of wear! i will strip down the top end again to have a look, hoping the crankshaft has not perrished as this is an engine out job! not a problem just don't want to spend no more time/money on it!


Thanks again! i can agree with the boy racer thing as the chap i got it off stated that he sold it three times but the buyers backed out! should have known better as half of the engine was in the boot! Oh well.... we live and learn.
