In Topic: 2013 Fiesta St Camshaft Position Sensor Fault

I have just read all this and this is from a car with only just over 2k.

And the place you have taken it too, don't get me started on that.

Its your pride and joy and when a person uses a pop bottle cut off to fill oil.

:angry: :angry: What can we say.


I've since moved on. If that car I posted about above is my old car I feel bad and a bit guilty for the new owner.

First my apologies for abandoning this thread without a conclusion.


About two weeks after my last post (Jan '14) and with the oil consumption issue still ongoing with no help from Ford CS or dealers I decided to sell the car back to the supplying dealer which cost me £3k plus.


One reason I've brought this back from the dead is that I have just read a report about a ST at the HonestJohn website that sounds eerily familiar:



12-8-2014: Engine of second hand 2013 Fiesta ST bought in March 2014 at seven months old started to rattle and needed 2.5 litres of oil 1,700 miles after purchase. Engine died and was replaced underwarrantyicon1.png.


Timing, age and symptoms all match my car and was wondering if it was anyone here or knows any more details? I feel guilty that someone else may have got this car but at least it seems a new engine was put in.


Thanks and sorry again for such a long delay in replying!
