Mums focus key fob has broken,so she can only open the car with the actual key and everytime she does the alarm goes off lol,also cant get into the boot because manual release doesnt work.

Input Shaft Worn?

11 September 2014 - 02:22 PM

Had the seal changed on the gear selector rod couple of months back as it was leaking,Attached File  ImageUploadedByFord OC1410444591.915315.jpg   91.34KB   23 downloads

It's begun to leak again just as bad,was told it may be the input shaft that's worn so isn't sealing? Did a little google and they're talking about pressing the clutch and a noise goes away,well mine does this too.

Could an input shaft also cause judder on pull away as I think I need the clutch doing aswell.

Is This Normal Of An Egr Blank?

11 September 2014 - 10:08 AM

Was taking off the right angle intercooler hose as it's got a split in it,noticed the residue around the egr valve Attached File  ImageUploadedByFord OC1410429429.474020.jpg   99.29KB   10 downloads

On the note of the hose though,the long one I repaired with gaffa tape and a hot glue gun has lasted over 6000 miles and is still going fine aha

Jerky Acceleration

26 July 2014 - 06:17 PM

say im rolling in gear at 30mph,if i press the throttle progressively,nothing will hapen for the first 3mm and then it will jerk,theres no smooth delivery of power.


the only thing i can think of is the air box,its not held on tightly as 3 of the 5 screws or w/e are threaded so i can literally half remove the top cover by hand.Or could it be anything to do with the MAF or anything else inside it?Also dont like the way it coasts along it feels jerky in itself and the revs appear to stick although im not 100% as ive only done about 300 miles in it over the last 2 months :P


i've had a split intercooler pipe on the focus and it didnt jerk but i presume thats a different thing.


When i stab the throttle in neutral it makes the sporty sound it has but you can hear a tssss but its not there throughout the reving. I'll post a video of the sound.


any ideas?
