ford fusion duratec

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!

I am from India and I have a Ford Fusion 1.6 petrol Duratec 2006 model.I have the following queries:-

1) What is the difference between Zetec and Duratec?

2)My car is over revving and not gaining speed as quickly as it should.Also pick up is poor. Can a loose air inlet hose cause the engine to overrev?

3)My car dealership has fitted a Ford Ikon Ignition Coil as original Ford Fusion Ignition Coils are not available anymore.Would it work properly?

Duratec refers to the engine type whereas Zetec is the build level.
Concerning the engine performance, it could be a worn clutch plate.

Quickest I've replaced a clutch was at 9,000 miles on a Nissan Almeda that had been thrashed senseless.

 

The Fusion has a Duratec engine, and a Zetec trim level.  The confusion arises due to the engines prior to Duratec being called Zetec too, so you could have a Ford with a Zetec engine and any trim level, including Zetec.  This was confusing, so with the revised engines shared with Mazda the name was changed from Zetec to Duratec, and the Zetec name was reserved solely as a trim level

No wonder I get confused.

My '93 Morgan 4/4 is an early "Zetec" engined 1.8.  :)

Cheers,
