Focus 1.8Tdci Zetec. Faults!

25 March 2013 - 09:45 PM

I bought my focus approx 7 months ago, when I bought it I noticed the drivers side front tyre had a lot more wear and tear than all other tyres. When I asked them about it they said they'll change the tyre, which they did. They explained that there was a whirring sound but they couldn't point out where it came from. Said the wheel bearings were fine. This whirring sound is ongoing and has been the whole time I've had the car. It only ever kicks in when I'm driving over 30mph and gets louder the faster I go.
They said they'd given it a full service and mot before I bought it but yet still had to have a new water pump fitted as there was a leak. I then had to change the turbo pipe myself as it had split and warning lights came on. The pipe was easy enough to fit and has been fine since. I have recently noticed a power loss in the car. Not necessarily in pulling away but more in the higher gears 3rd plus. Anyone have any ideas about any of these mysterious faults??? Any help is appreciated

Hello, I'm Aaron from Kent. I have a 57 plate Ford Focus 1.8tdci.
I have a lot of questions about my baby and why it's not doing what it's supposed to.
But plenty of time to query.
Nice to meet you guys
