  2. https://www.honestjohn.co.uk/news/miscellaneous/2018-08/urgent-appeal-to-owners-of-ford-10-ecoboost-engines/ this may clarify things for you , it appears that your fiesta is ok according to the photos in that link
  3. I have read somewhere that coolant pipe issue was related to the 1.0 ecoboost focus and not the fiesta , it was related to the coolant return pipe from the turbo to the coolant reservoir , it was made from cheap plastic that couldn't handle the pressure and eventually blows off. even if the fiesta is also affected, a 2013 ecoboost fiesta that's still trouble free up till now means that either it was recalled and fixed, or it has the redesigned coolant pipe that has no issues. according to the posted pics also I think its the same pipe I has in my 2019 mk8 fiesta, I guess no need to worry.
  4. UHHH the major recall of ecoboost engines between 2011 and 2013 because a lot of them are setting themselves on fire due to a faulty hose aparently , search facebook for fordecoboostnightmare... there is a class action lawsuit as well apparently
  5. I have a ford fiesta 11 plate 1.4 edgeTDCI diesel are they meant to come with a spare tyre ? As I got one I see no tyre just a bag with some break down kit in it and a pump no jacks ? If so what size wheel is needed ? X

    I'm all in favour of re-mapping; I've had my diesel done years ago, although I did find the video above quite entertaining; Have you tried consulting the tuner? Could be an EGR issue or MAP sensor
  7. Looks like it's in the wall 🙆‍♂️
  8. Guys I'm not happy atall, Two weeks ago I ordered a custom made height chart for our kids room to replace a section of the wall where the wife has been documenting the heights of our three kids, She found this website that does a solid Ash wooden ruler with customisable text engraved in it, cost me €80/£70.48 delivered, I've had it in my website bookmarks list since last October, but due to the price tag; I've only gotten around to purchasing recently as the kids bedroom was almost completely renovated; I thought well now is the time to do it, So I ordered it two weeks ago, and well it arrived today and I'm almost ready to put it in the car and drive all the 186 miles one way journey over to launch it through his 😬window. I've sent an very educational email across to the company this evening and I'm awaiting response aswell as seeking instruction, Here is the images from the listing Heres the full detailed description; no mention of holes anywhere: And well here is the item received with four 6mm holes depreciating the natural finish of the item. Why has someone drilled four 6mm holes down the centre of an oversized replica of an wooden Ash Ruler, when its supposed to be a custom item meaning they do what "YOU" want; Theres no mention of any holes in the listing, theres no sign of any holes in the pictures on the listing, So why would I need to specify "no holes" in making my order? When theres no sight nor sound of them in the entire website. Ive asked "Should I be like the edge from U2 in the Song "Numb" and speculate all the potential do's & don'ts with my order?" I've sent them an email; expressing my sincere disappointment at receiving an item which wasn't as expected despite everything on the website seeming very transparent; given the images of what to expect and the option of customisation; what could have gone wrong; the images don't show any 6mm holes. I then went on explain that the height chart weighing 1.7kg was indeed a "non weight baring item" meaning it wont be supporting any weight; I then pointed out the two foot wide & five foot tall steel radiator which is to the left of the height chart recieved; that radiator is 178kg with water inside; ironically it's also fixed to the wall using four 6mm screws, difference it really needs them; Why does a solid ash height chart weighing 7kg and not expected to support any further weight atall; require four M6 screws to be fitted in the centre which completely depreciates the flow of the natural finish. I had planned on fitting to the wall using some unibond No More Nails, Had there been any indications of holes being drilled on the custom item; I would have specified not to do this, I was expecting to receive exactly as saw in the images, I'm not currently in a position to purchase again specifying "no holes" until next payday, and by doing so; I would then be reciveing exactly what is shown in the website images an ash height chart with no holes. Sorry for the rant but I've been looking forward to this item arriving; its intention was to document history for our kids and would remain on there wall at the back of there bedroom door for centuries to come, A natural piece of Ash which has taken time to grow itself followed by time to craft in to something which is then used to document the growth of our children which we can all reflect on in time to encourage strength in moving forward. Yet the whole natural finish has been depreciated by four holes which are not required atall and not what I paid €80/£70.48 to receive.
  9. Today
  10. The Ford ones go off with all the other interior lights, they're also not as bright as the CEUK ones (more subtle) which match the interior lights perfectly
  11. Having a problem woth my car after getting it mapped to 170bhp, its a red edition ecoboost fiesta 2014 When accelerating it goes okay but not what it should be then gets to 3200rpm then it seems to loose all boost for maybe 2 seconds then it goes again any ideas?
  12. Hi All, So i am looking at buying a 2nd hand fiesta 2013 ecoboost and need to know if it has had the recall work done to it. can someone tell me how it's looking , i have pics below https://imgur.com/0bfcrMQ https://imgur.com/vVM9bA6 https://imgur.com/P0fzetg https://imgur.com/9r5AStm https://imgur.com/JD3KwgL https://imgur.com/9D8lSGw https://imgur.com/vIVcI8B
  13. There's a picture on page one, is this the plug?
  14. I'll get a plug in fan in there 😂😂
  15. They said the sniffer could detect a slight leak inside the car. But then they said that about the condenser but the leak wasn't there
  16. We are both on PCP, the missus doesn't do enough miles for a service to be needed before we renew but I wonder if having the check on the books might make it worth on trade in?
  17. Thanks for this, looks really good...can't say this for my DIY skills 😀
  18. Could they see or hear the leak there? Or is it the usual MK3 Focus invisible leak so they just say it's behind the dash...? I tried the leak fix in mine, didn't work unfortunately. Maybe you'll be lucky but I doubt it!
  19. It sounds like the barrel rather than the switch to me.
  20. Wow, that's bad luck, that's exactly the place I said I hoped it wouldn't be as they are nearly always beyond economic repair once you need the dash out! I hope the 'leak' stuff has some positive effect for you...
  21. I've gone with AutoAid this year, £48 Nationwide recovery & Home start (essential when you're a DIY mechanic on your local street). Had to use them as well (when the EGR shut down completely 😄 ) . No complaints!
  22. Most places let you tailor a quote to your requirements, so a higher deposit for a lower monthly payment or shorter lease period for example. CarWow might be able to help if you're looking at brand new cars.
  23. Vinyl wrap is basically just a big sticker! I don't think you can buy it pre-cut in the shape of the Ford airbag yet so you would have to buy a large peice and cut it to shape yourself. There's a good guide showing the process here. https://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/mk3-interior-mods-upgrades/551098-vinyl-steering-wheel-wrap-peeling-silver-trim.html#/topics/551098?page=1
  24. I have a lot of respect for him, both as a driver and for the way he always told it like it was. Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
