  • Auto Gearbox/Poweshift issue

    Hi All, I have a 2017 Focus Auto Powershift.  Just had gearbox replaced with a reconditioned one, soon as this was done I have a noise from under bonnet, like a loud rattle, slightly lower when in neutral but generally the same doesnt change at speed etc. Mechanic now unsure what is causing it. Suggesting Flywheel, another big job after a very expensive one, anyone come across this? End of my tether (and bank balance!) with this car!!

I have a 2011 Ford Fiesta Zetec S 1.6 TDCi 95hp, my clutch pedal bit point has gradually shifted higher up, I am wondering if anyone knows if there is any adjustment and if this will be cable or hydraulic? Thanks

      Motorway generally seem to be the best option.  Though I didn't have a great experience with them myself.  Ended up selling the car on eBay after they failed to turn up for the appointment.  They also have strict criteria for age and mileage etc. Cazoo paid an excellent price for my part ex, and paid off the finance.  But they were the dealer at the time, they now just work on behalf of dealers (albeit not for much longer). WBAC will give you 'something' if you just want it gone, but they don't seem to be best for price or customer service. If it's worth £500 or less, probably least hassle just to call the scrap man. I do understand not wanting the hassle of a private sale, and have health issues myself that prevent managing viewings now.  But after all the hassle I've had with dealers over the past 5 years, selling cars on eBay was actually the least hassle option.  If they have a kind and helpful relative, perhaps they'd be willing to manage any viewings and the handover on their behalf.

      As you're going to dilute it and if you live in a hard water area, I advise to use deionised water, 2.5 litres for £1.50 in Asda and Tesco.

      Don't forget the 155 (and some 125s) are also mild hybrid.  The generator takes some of the stress away from the engine.  The engines are also built to withstand the pressures of direct injection and turbo boost.  The idea that small 3 cylinder engines are all automatically 'weaker' simply isn't true nowadays.

      Use only Ford Coolant do not mix with other types. Only ever top up when the system is fully cold. Never fill above the Maximum line. See your Ford Owners Handbook page 342 for full details. https://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/Catalog/owner_information/CG3654en-202012-20201214103157.pdf
