  1. By the way. How do you fix down things? You need something to put in by the end of the camshafts. But do you need the X to in bitween the VCT sprockets? Because the mechanic who now did it said that you don't need the X between the VCT sprockets you only needed that with the fix camshaft timing.
  2. I think the battery plugs have been removed, because my clock is off the radio. So I don't know if that is the problem. I was wondering if the ECU can be faulty to drop faulty errors that actually doesn't exist mechanically
  3. Both camshaft and crackshaft sensors have been changed and the faulty codes still come up.
  4. Hey! I have a Ford Focus MK2 1.6 TI-VCT. Since I bought the car, the check engine light comes on and the engine doesn't has the power it should have. Sometimes it does but mostly not. The previous owner from whom I bought the car got the timing belt replaced because of the faulty codes. Check Engine didn't came on test drive, and drove well, but it did the next day. The camshaft sensors have been replaced, didn't solve the problem. I took it to a mechanic, he said the timing is correct, probably the VCT sprockets are bad. I had to take it to another mechanic because this one couldn't do it for health reasons. They replaced the VCT sprockets. crankshaft sensor too, new timing belt. Didn't solve the problem Took the car to a 3rd mechanic, he said the previous one misplaced the timing, the exhaust crankshaft was off. Ok, new timing belt he said everything is in the correct position right now. Still the car doesn't has it's power, the check engine light comes on and has P0017 and P0341 faulty codes. This 3rd mechanic said, since everything has been replaced, and the timing is set rigt it is probably the ECU got faulty. He said that there was a recall even back then on theese models because of this problem. What is your opinion on this? Can ECU go bad and produce theese error codes? 8 months have passed and none of them could solve my problem. It is really getting on my nerves.
  5. I have a 2005 ford focus ti-vct. I had a problem that the water temeprature won't go above 70 celsius. The full thermostate has been replcaed like 2 weeks a go. After that the temperature was in center. A few days ago the temp won't rise again, but sometimes it won't even go above 60 celsius. The heating in the car is a lot weaker too. So if the thermostate is working fine, because it's new, what the problem can be? I thought the thermostate works fully mechanically.
  6. Hey! The timing belt, vct-sprockets, vct solenoids, water pump, thermostate has been replaced on my Ford Focus 2 TI-VCT. Before I had a check engine light coming up that the timing on the intake side is not right. Now the check engine doesn't light up, but the car doesn't accelerate as before. The engine is idling fine, no weird noises or anything. But at full gas even my dads 40 year old lada accelerates better. Also reacing 100km/h speed in 4th gear and then putting it in 5th gear the speed doesn't go up more than 110km/h with about 3200rpms. What can cause this if the the timing is now right with the engine?
  7. One thing that concerns me a bit is, I've red on other forums, that because of lack of maintenance, old oil can clog up the oil passages in the cylinder head, and though there are still oil getting to the sprockets it's not with high enough pressure. But I hope it won't come to that, that I haveto get a new cylinder head.
  8. I have a new belt actually, wich is unused. My mechanic just tried theese things first to see if it is necessary to change the sporcket and belt. He said it's probably enough to change the faulty one. I just have a fear - the loser I am- that after this is changed the other one will go bad, and the whole thing has to be started over again. My biggest fear is that the check engine will come back with the same faulty code even after the sprocket is changed. It's getting on my nerves. Modern technology, more things that can go bad, no such issues with my dads 40 year old Lada, haha. Thanks for you help!
  9. Yeah it seems it has to be replaced 😞 I've seen the sprockets can be bougth seperetaly, both intake and exhaust. I only get fault code for the intake camshaft being late. So is it enough to change only that than? Does ford have any regulations on this? I change both of them if I have to, but also don't want to spend all that money if I don't have to.
  10. The camshaft sensors were both changed and it didn't solve the problem. Cracnkshaft sensor wasn't changed. My mechanic did a fault reading and it said that the intake valves aren't opening up as much as they should be, or something like this. He did an oil change because it had black oil in it and said that VVT systems need clean oil to function well. Cleaned the solenoids, and tested them as in the ford tech talk video they work fine. Went on a test drive 60kms everything was fine, no check engine light, Previously it came on after about 10kms. Last day after 1km it came on again. It is driving me crazy. He said probably the valve timing sprockets need to be changed. It is pretty expensive though. He said if the oil hasn't been changed after the needed period it can ***** up the sprockets, or pulleys or whatever they call them. Sorry for my english, it's not my native language.
  11. Hey all! I bought a Ford Focus MK2 TI-VCT last week. Everything was ok. The timing belt and a camshaft sensor was replaced just before I bought the car. It starts easily in cold, accelerates good, no problem, After 50kms I got a check engine light. Went to a mechanic pluggid it on the computer said it was camshaft sensor. So the other one wich hasn't been replaced before got replaced. After about 10km the check engine came on again. Switched both out for a new one, after 17 km check engine again. Plugged it on the computer again we get to codes, P0341 and P0030A. http://www.kepfeltoltes.eu/view.php?filename=709ford.jpg If you look at the picture the two with the red circles got replaced. But what are the sensors on the left? Because some mechanics said there are 4 sensors, but the car shops said there are only 2. For Authorized Service said to change the timing belt again, but it has been change about 300kms before, and the car drives good, so we don't think it is necesarry. The guys mechanic who I bought the car from said we should take the car to an automotive electician, becuase probably not the sensors are the problem. Any advice why does it keep doing this?
