    Is this coolant?

    Yeah it hurts, But I'm hoping that with all of this done now the coolant system on the car is as safe as it can be now. Hopefully worth it in the long run. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    Is this coolant?

    So Garage work done. £630 later I've had the following done: Degas hoses changed to mk3.5 versions, coolant tank and cap swapped, electronic coolant pump retrofitted... and to top all that, garage confirmed it was the engine mount leaking, so had that changed too. Hopefully my worries over the coolant system will now go away. Shame the mount replacement wasn't covered under my warrenty, that was a £200 job on its own.

    Such a shame...

    Hey guys, another question for you. I'm having the coolant pipes changed tomorrow for the mk3.5 ones Im just wondering if this would affect any ford work I have done in the future? Also having the coolant pump retrofitted. And the fluid mount replaced. Expensive visit coming up, it's being done by an independent ford specialist in my area. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    Top Engine Mount

    Need to know guys, I drove for about 10 minutes today come home checked under the bonnet and there's a lot more fluid now. I've got it booked in at the garrage on Wednesday and don't intend to drive it again until then, but will it be ok driving to the garage on a proper duff mount now?

    Is this coolant?

    Ok I think this is defiantly the engine mount. It got worse last night and today, see attached. You can also now see around the rim of the rubber on the mount where is now missing... Anyone got any idea on a price this may cost? Also a part number for it would be great if anyone has it. As I doubt ford will quote a decent price so if I can source it myself. I dabbed the fluid with my finger and it a very dark thick liquid with a tinge of red. If it was coolant I'm sure it would be a lighter red and thinner?

    1.0 ecoboost cooling pump question

    Another question around this if I can. Is the coolant pump needed even if we're conscious of idling the engine for a minute afterwords before shutting the engine off? Thanks.

    I've been told all ford tanks are prone to it. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    Help - Locating Ford Part

    That's the thing, I don't exactly know where it would come from or what part. I've filled out the details of my car, but it didn't come as standard, so I'm not sure its showing correctly.

    I'm getting my mk3 coolant hoses changed over to the mk3.5 versions next week. Also looking into fitting the additional coolant pump as well. This will hopefully sort our my coolant worries.

    1.0 ecoboost cooling pump question

    Hi all, Sorry to revive an old thread, but I've had a garage agree to fit the pump when I can find the parts, I've already booked it in to fit the mk3.5 hoses to my mk3. However they've said they cant do the PCM update. Does anyone know if the pump can be fitted, but without being configured until a later date? That way I can go and find someone to do it later down the line while being able to have all the components fitted at the same time as getting the new hoses and coolant tank fitted? Thanks

    Thats what I would like to think... The Coolant Tank is prone to cracking and leaking coolant... Found a few on mine and waiting to get it replaced. Luckily they seem to only be on the top of the bottle, so its not leaking, but you never know - I cant take the bottle off to see. Ordered a new one online and awaiting delivery for then to have it fitted.
