Got a 2008 ford focus titanium... how do I know if I have it or not ? I have read through the manual but it's not really that clear on what to do..... Might be straight forward ?

Couple Of Q's

Hi All,


Right I don't think these are problems as such apart from one possibility.



1. My car sometimes struggles to start, Battery and Alternator test have come back fine. Starter motor is not noisy. It's a bit strange, it starts while struggling and it sort of struggles and hunts for revs a little and sounds a little rough to be fair.  Thoughts?


2. Car gets warm VERY fast well my temp gauge does it takes 1-5mins of idling from cold and it's at the half way mark. Does not go passed the half way mark but it gets there very fast. Just thinking if that's just a normal thing to happen with these cars?


Said car is a Ford Focus 1.6 Petrol Titanium 2008

Hi all,


Should my focus have a engine cover on.. There's a point on the rocker cover where it looks like one should be on there and a few fixing points near the front of the rocker where I think it should have one as well.

Ford Focus 1.6 2008 Ti

Hi guys.

Unsure about this bought a 2008 1.6 titanium with 36.xxx miles on... I have never had a ford petrol before but it seems like there there is a very slight whine in 1st and 2nd I don't know if this is just a normal Ford noise as from what I remember my sisters 1.4 fiesta petrol gearbox is about the same? The noise happens when you select gear and accelerate say to 3k after around 3k noise is gone!
