  1. Seems that its in many European countries of course. Here in Greece it affects focus, c max, kuga, Mondeo, s max, Galaxy, Transit connect from 8/2012 to 6/2016 with 1.0, 1.5, 1.6 Ecoboost engines 6th speeds). In some German forums they say that they somehow test the clutch( put 6th gear and see if engine stops) and reprograme the pcm to recognise any abnormal temperature raising in the clutch plate and so to reduce the performance of the engine.

    Looking to buy a Mk3 1.6 ecoboost

    Does the 1.6 ecoboost use the same oil bathed cambelt like the 1.0 one ? Στάλθηκε από το Redmi Note 4 μου χρησιμοποιώντας Tapatalk

    Top Engine Mount

    Thank you JW 1982. I have the 125 HP version. Finally, i went to the dealer today. They made a ride with the car and they told me that since i have no vibrations on the steering wheel there is no reason to worry about. Στάλθηκε από το Redmi Note 4 μου χρησιμοποιώντας Tapatalk

    Top Engine Mount

    Since i don't want to open a new topic, could someone tell me if the top mount in the video seems OK ? Focus 1.0 Video was taken while engine was still warm. When it's cold, it has no movement at all.

    Oil catch can

    Since ecoboost 1.0 is a direct injection engine and having seen so many videos with carbon build up in the engine valves, i was thinking of fitting an oil catch can. Just in order to postpone as much as possible the development of the problem. What do tou think? Στάλθηκε από το XT1032 μου χρησιμοποιώντας Tapatalk

  11. No fiesta here, but same engine (1.0). Drove 20 mins at -7 celcius, everything ok, as soon as i stopped the car and remained inside with engine and heat on, i watched temperature level dropping significantly. I closed heater and everything went normal. Too bad for two thermostats and three coolant circuits ecoboost features.. Στάλθηκε από το XT1032 μου χρησιμοποιώντας Tapatalk

    Mk 3.5 Tpms deactivation

    No, it uses sensors at 433 mhz located in the valves. Στάλθηκε από το XT1032 μου χρησιμοποιώντας Tapatalk

    Ford focus mk2, Which Air Filter?

    Well i had the same problem when i tried to make the change by myself. You have to squezze the filter downwards and clockwise or anticlockwise, it doesn't matter, before you put it, so it will come to the right dimensions. Στάλθηκε από το XT1032 μου χρησιμοποιώντας Tapatalk
