53 plate mk1 tdci zetec focus


Recommended Posts


lately my focus has had a problem starting and is progressively getting worse its a 53 zetec tdci and when turning the key it will crank the engine without firing for a while then it will fire but then engine will shake quite hard when started and make a clicking noise at first i thought this was the starter motor playing up as now and then it would start fine but its doing it all the time now i have also noticed the clutch pedal stays down when pressed when starting up and wont come back up smoothly maybe the clutch not disengaging so the engine cant start properly?

any help would be much appreciated cheers

It could be the dmf.The symptoms,certainly poor starting ,excessive engine vibration and clutch issues are connected to it failing at some point.
