Retrofits For Mk3 Focus

14 June 2015 - 07:42 PM

Well finally got rid of the 2008 MK2.5 Focus Titanium TDCI and moved onto a 2014 Focus Titanium Navigator 1.0 ecoboost. Was disappointed to find it didn't have some of the toys I expected. Mainly DRL. But my question to anyone in the know is what can be retrofitted easily to this car and what would affect the remaining two years warranty?

Dtc Codes

03 May 2015 - 06:19 PM

I have a 2008 Mk2.5 Focus TDCI. I read the DTC codes this afternoon with ELMCONFIG as the power seemed down.

I got the codes P2458, P0299, P0087, P2459, P1180. I googled what each means and seems to be pointing to several problems. But I really dont know where to start to sort it out. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

Focus Oil Sump

11 February 2015 - 07:16 PM

I have a 2008 Focus 1.6 TDCI. Today its gone in for a service and MOT. No problems. Apart from a bill for £160 to replace the sump as the threads are stripped? I believe there are only two causes for this. Overtightening and cross threading. The same dealership done the service and oil changes for last three years. Would i be right to assume this damage been caused by the technicians or put it down to wear and tear? Would be good to be armed with information before i pick it up tomorrow. They have had to keep it overnight as it wasnt completed despite being dropped off at 7.30 this morning. Any information would be much appreciated. Thanks
