Ford Fiesta 1.5 diesel cutting out


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a 2013 Ford Fiesta 1.5 diesel. It started cutting out a few weeks back. I would start it and cut out instantly and a message would come up “engine malfunction service now” my car drove fine for a few weeks after. Same happened where it would cut out even while driving and kept getting worse. I had to call RAC as I couldn’t drive it a mile down the road without it cutting out.

RAC plugged it in and a general fault code would come up but it didn’t say what was wrong. (P06A8) 
I took it to a garage they’ve had my car for 2 weeks and they still don’t know the problem. They’ve checked everything they cleaned everything out like the wires and the connectors. Before that they said my car got worse and wouldn’t barely start. Now after cleaning a few things they said it starts but still cuts out ever so often. They even changed a sensor hoping that would help but it didn’t. 
the garage said I have a small coolant leak and that he thought it could have defect something because of the leak, but still no idea what’s going on.
Has anyone had a problem like this? The garage keep saying it’s a mystery and they can’t figure out what’s wrong with it. 
someone pls help

have you checked for consistant compression on all cylinders?

They told me I didn’t have pressure. But also said to me they still don’t know what’s wrong. Starting to think I chose the wrong garage.

Have they tried changing the fuel filter?  I assume it's fuel pressure that's lacking rather than compression.

Realistically you need to have the faults read with a Ford specific code reader though.

if they are saying you don't have fuel pressure its probably a clogged fuel filter of the pump, if they are saying that you have little or inconsistant compresson its either the piston rings, the head gasket, or the valves

I changed the fuel filter myself a few weeks back
