#367516 Top Speed In A 1.8Tdci Mk2?

Posted by ben1191 on 24 May 2014 - 12:24 PM

125? what were the revs showing? on  private track ive not even touched 110 as I wasn't too keen on high revving the diesel engine.
my Leon Cupra did 125 easily on the same track.

They were on around 3500,do you reckon it's been remapped then,I couldn't see it myself as the last owner was a vicar lol

Driving styles,people who don't rev their car now and then will do it more harm than good,it needs a good clear out now and again.

#355641 Air Suction Sound Under Acceleration

Posted by ben1191 on 21 April 2014 - 04:11 PM

Found the split and sorted it by putting a layer of wax/glue from a proper glue gun,used some super glue to help close it then put another layer of wax glue ontop to seal it,wrapped electrical tape around it then a bit of gaffa.fixed for now.ImageUploadedByFord OC1398096048.574657.jpg ImageUploadedByFord OC1398096060.230196.jpg

The split was hidden from view,and because it was right next to the moving belts there was no way of feeling the air escaping either.

#348458 Mpg

Posted by ben1191 on 28 March 2014 - 09:00 PM

I really do not understand how people on this forum manage to get such low mpg,I can only put it down to your poor driving styles and doing 80 down the motorways. I can get 70mpg sitting on 55/60 down motorways,60mpg on a roads and going at the corners with it.even if I'm spanking it down A and B roads Etc I'll still get 50mpg.i get around 45-50 in city.

My mother that uses the car seems to get 35mpg on the same routes I can get 45-50 on.its all in the driving styles.

#321638 Does An Electronic Fuel Pump Have To Be "primed" Before Installation?

Posted by ben1191 on 14 January 2014 - 06:36 PM

Hi guys.

Will be fitting a new fuel and oil filter in the next couple of days.

I know the oil filter has to be primed but does the fuel filter need priming too with it being electronic?
Is it just a case of turning key to number 2 position and let it prime itself?

Silver cylinder on top of the engine above EGR by the way.

Focus 2009 (59) 1.6 diesel.


Take it to a local garage an have them do it for you,I attempted changin it half knowing what to do and couldn't get it started again.had to call someone out and it took them a good 40 mins to get it started after I'd had a go at it lol
