  1. My last focus needed a new turbo and lost power the same but went into limp but my issue today seemed to rectify itself. went for another blast later on but no issues accelerating at 70/80 thankfully Would a regen take so much power as to slow down the car on a flat dual carriageway ?
  2. Focus tdci1.6 2008 Dpf estate just have DPF last week fuel filter , air oil and filter 3k ago. Accelerating to around 80 on dual carriageway way and suddenly lost power then felt like missing on/off for a few 100yds. Seemed ok after as drove up down carriageway a couple of times . No warning lights Anybody know what the prob is?

  9. Hi , my Ford Focus mk2.5 2008 power steering malfunction light come on. Drives normal . Recent new alternated and Bosch battery . wheelsspinning up a snowy hill yesterday but surely this can’t trigger it as only come on on start up this morning. Does low fluid effect this ? Going to check thanks for any help
  10. Got same issue on my focus 2008. No interior lights or glove box light haven’t bothered to get sorted with this pandemic as yet
  11. Deco Euro 5 with DPF £30 yr rd tax
  12. Hi mentioned on here a couple of days ago my focus went into limp with blocked dpf. Garage has changed oil/ filter as contaminated from dpf . Also chemical flush through dpf . All good now . Last test from cold tomorrow before I pick up. My driving habit due to job is stop start (window cleaner) Any recommendations on additives to protect / clean DPF I can regularly use? I intend to give it a 20min drive or so once a month from now for a full regen to complete Want to try and keep in good health Thanks

  14. My old man tested it . Going to have a look again tomorrow as getting car back from cleaned dpf . The interior lights were working before. The only reason I noticed the interior lighting not working as I was online and found Footwell lighting bulb holders with wires connected so went to euro parts for some nice white bulbs to find they didn’t work to notice none of interior lighting was working either
