      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. fiesta ecoboost engine faliure

    It must be a massive coolant leak if it drains it in 5 minutes. And it goes thru the engine, thats were the smoke comes from. It has all the characteristics if a detective head gasket or cracked head. It is however unlikely that two engines in a row exibit the exact same symptoms like that. Did you reuse the turbo from engine 2 to 3? Being water cooled, and if its cracked somewhere, the coolant Will be fed directly thru the engine and fast at that. I suspect a faulty turbo.
  2. As far as i remember, this is the engine made by psa? If so, there has been heaps of problems with this engine, due to the drain plug of the Oil pan not actually being at the lowest point of the pan. Hence when changing Oil, the Real dirty debris filled Oil remains in the engine, at the exact spot where the Oil pump pickup Oil. In Denmark where i am from, car makers using this engine has gotten alot of complaints about broken turbo specifically, as the debris in the Oil clogs up the small filter located on the Oil feed pipe at the turbo, and then the turbo goes unlubricated and blows. Anyhow, some of the sparepart shop has made a new Oil pan, with a better located drain plug. This sounds like that problem, but more like the pump is clogged.
