Looking to buy a Mk3 1.6 ecoboost

Hi there. My first post! Looking to replace my existing car and get a mk3 focus. Looking at the 1.6 ecoboost as I've ready good things and seems to tick most of the boxes. Is there anything I should be looking out for when looking at cars? What is the service schedule like for these engines?

Going to test drive a 2012 one tomorrow.

I have a frozen white focus Zetec s 2012 and it grate, one of the things I would check for is water in the boot, mostly in the spare wheelwell, and a damp smell in the boot area, this mean's there is a leek, and it comes from a very strange place and is a pain to fix,

or have a look at my thread

I hope that helps.

Thanks for the tip there. I'll be sure to check the spare wheel well!

The 1.6 ECOboost engine has a timing belt. The prescribed changing interval for the timing belt is 125000 Miles or 10 Years (whichever comes first).

Service is scheduled every 12500 miles or every Year (whichever comes first).

Does the 1.6 ecoboost use the same oil bathed cambelt like the 1.0 one ?

No, the 1.6 ECOboost has no wetbelt but a normal (dry) timing belt.

The 1.6 ECOboost is basically based on the old Sigma (1.25/1.4/1.6 Zetec/Duratec) engine family. The 1.6 ECOboost (also called 1.6 Sigma GTDI) is a direct injected, turbocharged further development of the 1.6 Duratec TI-VCT engine.
