The fuel filter doesn't need to bed in. The only thing I could suggest is don't use supermarket crap and don't let the tank run to low as you maybe getting some rubbish going through the fuel system. Try some redex diesel fuel treatment cos someone who owned it before you may have used supermarket crap. If not check to see if your model has a DPF filter if so it may need a clean.

In Topic: Ford 1.8 Tdci Good Or Bad?

I've had different focus models 1.8petrol very pokey, 1.6 petrol that was good, 1.8 tdci 115 bhp sold it cos the dark grey was a devil to keep clean and showed all the marks was not good condition either. So brought another focus 1.8 tdci 115 bhp with low miles
In silver as this doesn't show the marks and looks clean from a distance when dirty I've had it serviced in October 2013 my friend does it as he works at fords he says the 1.8 tdci is the better engine.You can't beat the comfort and it's very pokey.

I found using supermarket fuel hasn't got the same goodness as branded fuels . I use shell fuel save diesel and runs fine and it's quite
And runs more smoothly. I also use redex diesel treatment every 2-3 months to keep the system clean.

It sounds to me that it could be the DPF filter is getting blocked that's if you have one fitted?
If you have one fitted to your model then to clean it you need to drive your car down the motorway in a low gear with high revs.
A new DPF filter is expensive or try and have it cleaned for you.
I believe reading on the forum a while ago that you can have the DPF removed and remapped for around £200.
I hope this info helps
