Ford Focus 1.8 TDCI 2007 Issues

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

I've a 2007 Ford Focus 1.8TDCI Sport Limited Edition, and in the last week I've noticed my car has began to puff out a lot of black smoke, I keep getting an engine system fault message & there's definitely a slight loss of power. I have no EML faults, I've checked using my diagnostic machine and I aint getting any errors. Anyone know anything that could potentially be?

Check all air hoses for splits and cracks. 

My Mrs has a 07 1.8tdci Ghia which when under load would throw out black smoke and lose power with warning light coming up on dash. 

Tried Forscan diagnostics which indicated an airflow issue. 

Turned out there was a split towards the bottom of the rubber intercooler to turbo air hose.
