Ford Focus Ecoboost 125 (2013) sluggish


Recommended Posts

The past month or so we have been experiencing problems with our Ford Focus 125 Ecoboost (2013) in that you are casually cruising along and then there is this very slight jolt and then a noticeable loss of power - particularly "turbo" power.

An example was driving up a hill today, on a dual carriageway in the outside lane (overtaking), 6th gear, when I suddenly felt this jolt, and it seemed like the turbo just cut out and it felt like an old banger trying to get up a steep hill, where you have your foot to the floor but there is no power.  I didn't do this of course but found myself pulling back in behind the car I was trying to overtake.

This has happened on a number of occasions (in particular on this hill which I have to tackle every day) and we have just had the car MOT'd and serviced and for which they found no problems.

Is this the turbo failing or more importantly breaking?

It seems very sporadic and prior to today hadn't happened for maybe a week?

Any help/advice much appreciated.

Knowing how long 6th gear is, using it to go up a hill is likely labouring the engine, so not good practice anyway.

Has your car had the recall done on the coolant pipe?

6th gear is normally fine going up a hill.  Normally it has no problems.

But yes had the coolant pipe done a couple of years back.
