  1. Past hour
  2. That's a hell of an age for an Ecosport. I'd know idea they had been around as long 🤣 You have to read through what he's saying very carefully. There are many other engines around that have wet belts and most of them have issues. Yes I might have read about that, think the guy was called Hans Christian Andersen, he wrote a few books. Although I don't recall the one about the reliability of the Ecoboost 1.0 engine 🤔
  3. Tbh I’ve no idea what’s going on half the time. First hybrid I’ve driven. Breaks are spongy , it sometimes says to take foot off the accelerator, sometimes taking foot off the revs drop to zero. So ICE is off at that point but whether it’s using the battery instead I’m not sure. It’s definitely a case of setting everything you’ll need before starting your journey. Sports mode though is a flick of the gear selector. My pals auto gear selector is a stick , don’t know if that means it’s a different auto box 🧐 The focus has 11 months lease left. If I get another it’ll be because they’re cheap but also fun to drive.
  4. Heya, 2013, 1 litre focus ecoboost. Got an overboost issue P0234:22-6C. Any ideas? ALso cat issue (turns eml on, not limp mode though)
  5. Hi there, I'm hoping someone could help me with a problem I just started having. So basically about 3 weeks ago I was driving along slowly when I lost acceleration for about 2 seconds. Initially I just thought it was my big work boots catching on the carpet or something and had slipped off the pedal. This happened once more about a few days later but hasn't happened since....until yesterday. So it happened again yesterday and it lasted maybe 5 seconds. Driving slowly, in an entrance to work, revs dropped off and I could put the pedal all the way to the floor and no response. As soon as I take the foot off the pedal and then put it back on then car accelerates like normal. There is no sense of the engine struggling or anything like you would expect with a blocked fuel filter. It happened again earlier today while going slow. Any ideas?
  6. Today
  7. weird because my mk7 1.6 ti vct 2012 fan never comes on unless i have the air conditioning switched on.
  8. The issue with the climate being poor at heating is because Ford removed the auxilliary resistive heater early 2020 as a cost cutting measure.

    I recently spent £6,500 on my Black Angus bull. I put him out with the herd but he just ate grass and wouldn't even look at a cow. I was beginning to think I had paid more for that bull than he was worth. Anyway......I had the Vet come and take a look at him. He said,, the bull was very healthy, but possibly just a little young. So he gave me some pills to feed him once per day. The bull started to service the cows within two days……. all my cows! He even broke through the fence and bred with all of my neighbour's cows! He's like a machine! I don't know what was in the pills the Vet gave him ... all I can tell you is they kind of taste like peppermint.
  10. No functional pump in the tank as far as I'm aware. Never come across one. If they did the pain the ***** bleeding wouldnt be necessary.
  11. Thanks for the help i able to get lucky took the wipers off removed top cover and got to the linkage sprayed them with wd40 and ran windscreen wiper they started moving sprayed more wd 40 when they where running then blasted them with acf 50 freed them up 100% replacing the linkage is a bit more involved glad i didn't have to do that bottom cover and both headlights need to come out.
  12. I can't remember in all honesty. I had to change mine because the spring seized in one position and the bearing sounded like a roller skate. When I fitted the new one, there was a lot of movement on it to start with. But I never consciously checked it again.
  13. Hi, Wondering if you can help me please. Focus 2005 2.0 TDCI drives fine when cold and idles well but once the engine is hot and at a junction, as I lift the clutch to pull away the revs are dropping off, so makes the car judder. Wondering if a sensor of some sort has gone bad? No codes are showing up. Many thanks
  14. Think the Ford Pass app came out in 2016 but if it picks up vehicles registered before that it will show info in the service tab.
  15. Don't know the tech side of voltages etc but the fact that the AA as you said removed part of the battery tray to make battery fit doesn't sound right. Did the removed part of the battery tray get replaced. Sounds like "ah lets drill hole in the side of the engine block so we can bolt on another part". Battery tray size was made that size by Ford for a reason, to fit proper sized battery, not to be modified by third party. Just a thought, when you take on car insurance one of questions asked is has the vehicle been modified in any way.
  16. Smax power tail gate gradually become stiffer when it closes and now so stiff it stops. No objects jammed or anything like that, just been progressive. Anyone had this issue? It’s booked in, but it’s unclear if the dealer will just want to replace the motor strut or not. If they do i might as well do it. Any advice of the same issue welcomed.
  17. My Impreza was noise tested at Elvington recording 102db. That was with the bung in the exhaust to keep the noise down. 😂 It was tested 1m away from exhaust tip, at a 45deg angle with ¾ max rpm.
  18. Yes, low end. As soon as you get to full pressure on the fuel rail, you're back to standard
  19. Hi all I'd like to get some help. I had my fiesta since 2023 June (bought with 22k kms now at 24k) and not long ago I have started noticing a muffled clicking or banging sound coming from around the gear stick, I assume it is related to something to the transmission in which topic I'm not an expert in to say. Anyways the sound is only hearable in 1st or 2nd gear especially at low speeds (up to 20-30 km/h). It does not effect the driveability of the car, clutch feels normal and car runs smoothly, but i worry i need to take it to a dealership to have look at it. I have read about a similar problem on other forums saying it might be the throwout bearing (previous owner rode the clutch to much?) but i hope it is not the same. I had a 2016 model (bought with 50k kms sold 75k kms) previously and have not met this problem. Anyone else had the same problem? Thanks for your responses in advance!
  20. Below is the door lock wiring. All wires are Black just to make it harder. Wire to pin 2 is the common for both lock motors. Note that it can be common positive, or, common negative, depending on whether the door is being locked or unlocked.
  21. When on 'radio' mode, do all 4 x speakers still not work?
  22. Big fan of cable ties on my wheel trims so have never looked for an alternative. You can also get cable ties to colour match, I hate seeing black ties on sliver trims! I would be really surprised if steel ties would significantly effect wheel balance. Though an easy experiment, drive without them, make sure no wheel vibration, then, try driving with them. If wheels give you a vibration maybe they do effect the balance.
