#262626 Focus 1800 Diesel Engine Problem

Posted by brian_c on 24 May 2013 - 07:16 PM

Hello all. I have a good news update. Our mechanic fetched the car away from the dealers and has managed to sort the fault. Yes it was eventually the Turbo which he has sourced and installed. Our Final Bill around a quarter of the prices that we were originally being speculatively quoted, so whilst it has cost quite a chunk of money we are quite pleased that after all this time we now have the car back ok. With a part fitted that was actually required.
I am more than pleased that the guy at the garage we use has managed to sort out everything for that price I know he has spent a considerable amount of time and substituted parts from his own car to check things out. Not to mention managing to sort the Ford dealers charges.
He was genuinely concerned that when we finally needed to buy a part it was in fact required and not just fitted in a process of elimination.
So we are up and running again my confidence in ford cars dented but not terminally, I have been using them too long and this is our first major headache.
Anyway kind regards to all and safe driving.

Hi my name is Brian and I have just joined the forum. I have a 2008 focus Ghia 2 litre diesel. That I tow a caravan with. My wife has a 1600 Sport petrol 55 reg and our daughter has 1800 diesel Ghia 57 reg. so we have a bit of a monopoly of focus cars at our house.
Best regards Brian
