Ford Focus Tddi Turbo Only Kicks In First Thing

30 May 2013 - 11:09 PM



I have a 1999 focus tddi 1.8 i recently replaced the gaskets as was running rough while doing this i removed the turbo to check was all okay and running freely which it was, put all back together and found that the turbo only kicks in each day on its first run but as soon as i slow down then pull away again theres no turbo pull....


I wouldnt no if it was like this before as i bought it needing the gaskets replaced and didnt feel like the turbo was pulling then especially as there was probably no air getting to the turbo anyway due to the gaskets.


Ive noticed that theres plenty of air coming from the turbo, thru the pipe in2 the intercooler as the pipe expands but the other pipe from the other side of the intercooler doesnt expand...didnt know if this may be the problem or whether this wouldnt affect it? there also seems to be a sensor on the side of the intercooler, ive unplugged this when the car is running and nothing changes but then again, i wouldnt no if this is supposed to make any change lol


Anyone have any suggestions?



Turbo Not Pulling Focus Tddi

01 May 2013 - 08:11 PM

hi i recently bought a ford focus tddi 1.8 which seems like the turbo isnt kicking in. Ive taken the turbo off and seems to run freely, put it back on but is still lacking turbo power....feels like its running completely without the turbo but theres no lights on dashboard and no smoke.


It revs fine, starts first time but just cant pick up speed very well and cant here the turbo spin.


Can anyone suggest any faults?
