    Ecoboost Sudden death at 40K miles - Degas hose

    I had the same issue with the degas hose on my 2013 Zetec S in November 2016. My car just suddenly stopped one day. As I realised that the engine was dead I called Ford and booked it in and expected a big bill. When I called after a couple of days to check they said that a new engine was on order and they replaced the engine under warranty (which only had a week or two to run.) My car has NEVER been serviced by Ford.

    External mirrors

    Hi all. Anyone have any idea what the small 'protrusion' is beneath my near side door mirror? I was trying to get the casing back on earlier after someone had pushed the mirror the 'wrong' way last night. There isn't one on the drivers mirror casing. Struggling to get casing back on properly but that's another story Cheers

    Emergency Assist

    I thought the emergency assist was purely to enable your location to be transmitted to the emergency services in the event of an accident. I don't think it stores any information. Although I'm probably mistaken😜

    Bit slow to update. Took the car back to dealership who recently replaced the engine. It appears one of the injector seals was warped. They looked at it while I waited. Car all good again.

    Grrrrrrr!!!!!! Ran engine in slowly, serviced and MOT done. Coming home tonight, just as I approached house, engine symbol flashed up on dash and car seemed to want to cut out. Now runs, no symbol but idle doesn't feel as smooth as normal and petrol smell. Call to dealership in the morning.

    Focus MK 2.5 Service

    Focus servicing tends to be 12500 miles or every twelve months, whichever comes first.

    you know your getting old when....

    Can't remember being 40
  13. Surely if the car is unlocked you open the boot with the tailgate button? My boot doesn't lock every time I close it unless I've locked the car. Then the fob is used to unlock Maybe I'm thinking too much into this😄

    servicing

    I have a 63 plate Zetec S which I have serviced by a local garage. VAT registered and only genuine parts. I've used them for years and all our family cars are serviced there. I've just had the engine replaced by Ford under warranty due to the degas hose fail. No quibbles, questions or bull. Local garages are generally better value and often go that extra bit for customer service.
