In Topic: 60,plate Smax Engine Problems

14 June 2013 - 09:28 PM

Hi, I have a 11 plate S-Max 2.0 163ps and have noticed that on my car as well. As Mintalkin suggested it is the DPF trying to regenerate. These engines need to go on a cruise every now and then at a constant speed so the DPF can regenerate properly. When my car does this I keep it in 4th gear and try to maintain 2500rpm on a duel carriageway and this allows the regeneration. You will notice the exhaust note change back to normal and a smoother idle return

In Topic: Fiesta Mk7 Rear Wheel Bearing, Help Appreciated!

Won't be the bearing unless there is loads of play in it. More likely that he's hit your wheel as well and could have bent your stub axle (bit the wheel bearing sits on) or even bent the axle. Best bet is to get a 4 wheel alignment check done and check the camber for that wheel

In Topic: Dash Display Not Showing Outside Temp Following A Minor Bump

Yes most probably you outside temp sensor as they are located right behind the front bumper. How hard was your 'bump'? Check to see if your air con works, the light on switch will still work but the compressor may not be cutting in. If the 'bump' was quite hard then you may have damaged the air con condenser (air con radiator) and the hissing noise was the gas escaping. Bumpers are good at hiding hidden damage after a bump!!

In Topic: Fiesta 1.25 Zetec Clutch Problems

Sounds like clutch has worn right out, has the clutch been slipping prior to this happening? Is there a burnt smell from the engine bay with the bonnet open?
