  1. Focus Tdci 1.8 Cutting Out

    Hi Guys, thought i would let you know the car is eventually sorted. After much wasted time and stressing over nothing, turns out there is a small o ring inside the filter housing, and that was all disfigured and split so popped a new o ring on and a new filter and bobs ya uncle. Sorted! Thanks for the help :)
  2. Focus Tdci 1.8 Cutting Out

    Hi guys. Ok so got filter changed. Primed it made sure the injectors had been bled so no air in system now car is even worse. Won't start and when it eventually does it just dies basically straight away. Any ideas
  3. Focus Tdci 1.8 Cutting Out

    Hi Guys, So found out that there may be water in the fuel system because i have been using a barrel to store diesel and then transferring it to my car. Seems to only be cutting out when it is near the red - Going to get a new fuel filter fitted and use some redex and see if that helps. One garage told me i would need to get the tank emptied but another said as long as i changed the fuel filter it should be ok. Any thoughts?

    Ok, well my partner said something about the housing moving up and down which he doesnt think should happen... He is going to take a closer look tonight.

    That was my first thought - The fuel filters should be ok though as i have just had it serviced. I was thinking of putting some injector fluid in the tank to clean it up abit as well...

    Ok thanks for that - Think i will have to get it plugged into a diagnostics machine this weekend. How much do you reckon either of those will be to replace?
  7. Focus Tdci 1.8 Cutting Out

    Hi, I have a Ford Focus Titanium 1.8 TDCi 2007 It has about 70k on the clock. i have recently had it serviced just over a month ago. In the past couple of days it has cut out twice and then would not restart for a good 10 minutes. All filters are basically brand new so cant be a problem with those. I was hoping someone could shed some light on this for me before i take it to a garage and fork out a fortune. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
