  1. Definitely interested in some kind of guide / how to! Where did you get the parts from? eBay?

    Coolant leak

    Had a similar issue recently on mine (they found it during the service), didn't take the tray off so couldn't tell you exactly where it was coming from, but it was a little damp on the tray. They replaced the water pump and the problem has since been fixed.

    Amazon Echo Dot in mk3 - do it!

    So want to try this. What's the response time like on the cell network? Do you have to wait a while for it to respond to you?

    Focus MK3 Squeal - Clutch?

    My MK3 has exactly the same issue, noticed it doesn't always do it, seems to be when the clutch is 'cold' for me.

    Nice! Absolutely love the black and red combination. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I went from a MK2.5 1.8TDCi to a MK3 125ps and actually felt like it had more power (in fairness, numbers wise it does have a tad more HP), feels more punchy which is still mind blowing for a 1L 3 cylinder engine! Love my MK3 Titanium X, sounds like the 3.5 has some good improvements. Although looking through Alex's list above most of the things I've never considered 'problems'.

    If you don't mind me asking, what kind of price is that going to work out to be with an engine swap?

    The new RS

    That would be very interesting if they brought the AWD system to the version of the Focus for us mere mortals! I've just got my MK3 Focus so hopefully np plans to upgrade soon aha.

    The new RS

    Was passing my local Ford garage this morning and out of the corner of my eye saw the distinctive blue of the new RS, had to turn around and go in for a look! (Bonus Mustang but pffft, common cars! ;) ) One day...for now I'll keep my 1L Ecoboost!

    Sensitivity of auto headlights

    I've noticed mine (MK3) don't seem to be super sensitive, when it starts to get a little overcast towards the end of the day and you see a lot of other peoples lights come on, mine still seem to be off. The one thing I would say is that mine seem to come on just a tad earlier than I would turn on the lights in a manual car (which I consider a good thing). I'm wondering if there is some kind of timer? I.e. the sensor has to detect below a certain threshold of light for X amount of seconds, hence the reason they don't always come on going under bridges etc?
  12. I had a slightly similar issue on my previous Focus, it would "stutter" between 1.8k and 3k and above that be fine. Ended up being the fuel pump that was disintegrating by itself. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Finally back in a focus

    Guess you're glad that nightmare is over! I've just bought a 62 plate Ecoboost so fingers crossed, just about to pass the 5 day mark aha. Have been looking at one of these sets myself, you'll have to let us know if it's any good. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    santa pod classic ford show

    Ooooooh might have to have a look at this as I only live in the neighbouring town to Santa Pod! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. It was 'juddering' under load for a couple of weeks before it went in for the clutch/flywheel (wanted to wait and see if the two were related). After I got it back it just got worse and worse, as soon as you hit around 2k rpm it just started shaking, above 3k it would die down again. Took it in and the diesel 'specialists' plugged in to all the injectors and they were all going, went to drive away (to get a second opinion which I'm glad I did) and they must have done something as all of a sudden diesel smoke out of the rear etc! Turns out in the end, the fuel pump had started to let go and little bits of brass from it where getting into the injectors. Glad I didn't just go ahead and get the injectors done as it would have just kept happening (Ford wanted £450/injector x4!!). Have since swapped it for a 62 plate Ecoboost with 27k miles, hopefully will last for some time now!
