Heat shield biting my Fiesta 1.0l Ecoboost turbo coolant pipe

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I bough a used Fiesta with 125bhp Ecoboost couple of months ago. Since I'm aware that the engine can get destroyed in a case of coolant loss I decided to have a closer look at it today. I noticed that the coolant hose that is going from turbo to the radiator has been worn out a bit by the heat shield that is protecting it. The head shield has bitten 1-2 mm into the hose and I see that it might potentially cause a slow coolant leak. For now I haven't lost any coolant but since these engines seem to need a proper cooling all the time I'm a bit worried of these kind of small imperfections in the cooling system. Im going to get my hose changed asap.

 

Below is a picture of the hose and the heat shield.

I would be worried. as you know the reputation of these engines for self destruction when coolant leaks. don't take any chances

If that's the coolant pipe that fits into the turbo you'll not be able to order it without buying a whole turbo from Ford anyway.

Ha ha in that case you'll be fine to get the part from Ford.

Might be able to get it replaced under warranty as it looks like it was assembled that way.

When I saw this post I had a look at mine. Same problem. Contacted Ford Main agent in Exeter (Vospers) as still in warranty , just. Very quickly booked in and hose replaced under warranty. The heat shield looks different and is better finished at the ends. Good service from Vospers.
