  2. Im So Stuck Here :( Anyone Know About Focus Engines, Please Help!

    Hi haz93 thank you for that :) i remember before actually speaking to mountune performance about 2 years ago for an upgrade to my engine, but exactly what you said, the fiesta and focus engines are not compatable, even tho there both 1.6TiVCTs :( shame because it seems that theres alot of interest in upgrades for these ... Hi artscot79:) you can prob remember me about a month ago on my old post asking about an engine, well, update .. i bought one of those showed to me on ebay, unfortunately the engine that i received was completely different from shown! the cheek! !Removed! garages! haha :) Ebay listing picture ->http://sinewavesounds.co.uk/ebaypic.JPG What i received-> http://sinewavesounds.co.uk/received.jpg My actual engine i need ->http://sinewavesounds.co.uk/IMAG0589.jpg After speaking to some idiot for an hour, he finally realized the wrong engine was sent and was asking if i knew what one was compatable .... urmmmm, thats why im on here again asking for advice because atleast you guys know :) So artscot79, your saying that the cmax and fiestas engines are no good? shame, theres loads of them! :) i really dont want to go down the road of repairing my old engine, it was cursed with bad luck and hadnt been playing fair for a while now thinking about it, i think new engine swappy will just do the trick (if i can !Removed! find one!) :D cheers guys
  3. Hi guys, im at my witts end with this problem, no one seems to know much about these 1.6tivct engines, im soooooo stuck! i own a ford focus 2008 (08 reg) Mk2 it is a 115bhp zetec climate ... i need a new engine and the problem i have is that everyone sends me a standard 1.6 engine, the root of the problem is that the engine code starts with 4m5g and that is what im after but the engines they send are the wrong ones, there is no solenoids on the cam shaft covers and the exhaust manifolds are in the wrong place .... cut a long story short ... does anyone know EXACTLY what engine i need? i have found loads of focus cmax and new fiesta engines that look 100% like what i need ... are these ok to put in my car? will it work with no problems? heres what i found so far __>> http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/150465153520?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649#ht_1267wt_989 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/320959016103?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649#ht_2123wt_1185 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/180971467276?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649#ht_867wt_1185 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/200810167935?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649#ht_2352wt_952 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251156045399?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649#ht_500wt_1202 will any of these be ok? thanks guys, really appreciate any help :)

    artscot79 _ Really :( i hope i haven't been had :( - thanks for bringing this to my attention .. i don't know alot about engines, i bet these buggers have taken me for a ride! i was a bit surprised when i was told all of that, especially when they only had the car for a few hours and it was virtually impossible to do all of that in a few hours? i got a new engine, and it was going to be delivered to the same guys that done all of these "diagnostics" but after what i have read, i think ill have it delivered elsewhere for someone else to do! The frigging cheek of some people! im tempted to name and shame the b*****s! thanks so much for asking your mate, you have probably saved me alot of time, money and effort :) il buy you a pint if i ever see you haha :D right, time to get on that blower and sort this out, ill keep you posted, thanks again :)

  7. Pleaassee Expert Advice Needed :)

    Thanks again guys for the advice :) i got a bit of a dilemma and its making me scratch my head so much im starting to go bald! :D @artscot79 those engines that you showed me on ebay, are they for my car? Reason i ask is they are 4M5G, they look like exactly like my engine to me but .... the Engine code on mine says 7M5G >http://www.coteks.co.uk/IMAG0443.jpg and i cant find those anywhere!! This one you showed me > http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FOCUS-HATCHBACK-TITANIUM-1-6ti-150-2004-2009-COMPLETE-4M5G-ENGINE-/330755676292?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item4d02931884&clk_rvr_id=381211462888&afsrc=1#ht_3228wt_1185 That says 150 bhp? will that fit? I also think that came off a Titanium model and might have a 6 speed gearbox? im sooo confused :S Sorry for asking so many questions guys
  8. Pleaassee Expert Advice Needed :)

    Thanks guys for the advice :) i really appreciate it :) The tappy sound was never there before, its very very loud, defo not the injectors, it only happens when the cars ... not under full acceleration .. if that makes sense ? I think a new engine job is under way to be honest, i can spend £500+ sorting the head gasket out and the tappy sound still there, id rather buy a second hand engine, and "attempt" to fit it myself :) i got the lifting arm thingy to lift it out and back in .. :) Another question if you don't mind me asking is .. I'm looking at a more powerful engine to be put in there (like most of us focus fanatics) could i get the head re bored to allow bigger pistons, would that make much difference? or would like ... say a 2 litre engine fit in there ok? cheers guys, thanks for the help ) :)
  9. Pleaassee Expert Advice Needed :)

    Hi everyone, i really need some expert advice as the local ford garage where i bought my car from is full of useless monkeys .. I own a Ford focus 1.6Tivct which is 4 years and 2 months old from brand new, done 42,000 miles, nothing really for an engine and i have had overheating problems for ages now. The real problem started about 4 weeks ago, i was driving up a hill and the engine started to lose power, i pulled over and the water reservoir was completely empty and filled with yellow/brown sludge ( i believe this is oil) so i went and filled it back up and as a precaution, dropped the oil and changed the oil. After a few minutes, the car seemed to be working fine, until i stopped, the car was making a tappy sound when it was revving, but only nearer 1000 - 3000 rpm but under full load, it didn't seem to do it. I didnt really think this was a problem until i drove it out and the car engine went absolutely scorching, i then stopped and put the car into diagnostic mode ( holding the trip computer button for 5 seconds to access more menus) and went through until i had the engine temperature mode, it was showing 180'c! I allowed it to cool right down before driving again and the coolant had disappeared again and it smelled of petrol coming though the reservoir, every time i put water back into it, it seemed to shoot straight out of the top and what looks like at the bottom of the water pump, i also noticed that it seemed to smoke a little white when i managed to get water into the reservoir ... I believe that the head gasket might have gone, which i can probably afford but the ford technician said that because of the tappy sound (which happened before all this overheating) that he would definitely recommened a new engine, had a quote of £5400 + VAT and also would need new hoses everywhere as the oil had contaminated them too!! As you probably would have guessed, i was really P***** off with this but if a new engine is the only solution, my 1.6TiVct are sods to get hold off .. Does anyone know what other engine could fit into this car without major major work or if anyone has done a project by increasing the cc of the engine like this, could you / they give me a quote? I wouldnt mind "upgrading" the engine to something bigger bit i certainly aint giving ford another penny of my money for a like-to-like engine swap basis .. Thanks guys for reading this, really appreciated :) :)
