In Topic: 1.6 Tdci Mpg

16 March 2014 - 07:23 PM

The computer says i am getting 69.8, it was 72.3 in the warmer weather, thats town driving and a bit on 40mph roads but no motorway. Thats taking it easy but once a month taking up the motorway to help the dpf thing. Mine is a 1.5 litre engine and have done a few 200 mile trips in it on motorways but the mpg dont seam to change that much, the average mph is 28.


In Topic: Ford Fiesta Zetec 1.6 Tdci 2008 - Fan Issue, Causing Flat Battery

27 February 2014 - 09:56 AM

I have had this on our car since new, when ours does it the fan goes very fast and makes the car shake, i can switch the ignition off and even lock the car up and it still keeps going, i allways keep switching the car on and off until it stops. The Ford dealer said it was regenerating the dpf filter but i dont believe it.

My first service is £152, due to be done on the 10th march. Got a loan car for the day not sure if that makes any difference. What got me was if i have it done by a Ford main dealer i get another years breakdown cover free, bargan!, 1.5 Econetic diesel.

In Topic: Drivers Side Pillar Rattle

Thanks for the reply, mine is coming from the pillar in the centre of the two doors on the drivers side or the top right hand corner of the door trim, its right next to your ear when you are driving, driving me nuts.
