  1. Ford Focus Mk2 Common Problems Thread

    Update: Someone at work recommended a garage that would look at the issue I was having. They ran a diagnostic that pointed towards injector. First point of call was to check the Fuel filter to make sure that was good. Apparently a blocked/dirty fuel filter tends to throw up an injector fault. If there's not enough fuel getting to the injector, it flags as an injector fault. Turns out mine was very very dirty one and full of bits of crap. Fuel filter changed, injector cleaner run and the car now goes right through the rev range in every gear. £122 instead on £1100 odd. Big thanks to you and everyone else on here for your help and support

    Thanks for the reply. The car runs smoothly at idle and smooth when accelerating. I sometimes feel a bit of very slight holding back at low speed but nothing major and the odd bit of a kangaroo scenario at very low speed. I can quite often accelerate right over 3000 rpm in 1st and 2nd gear but it's not until 3rd that the power drops at 3000rpm. I have actually noticed that it does this when the engine is cold. I haven't taken it up to 3000 rpm since my original post and although there is a slight lack of power at times, probably due to the low revs, it drives fine. I'll definitely get a second opinion on it but you have given some hope, so thank you

    Finally been told what the issue is with my car. According to the diagnostic, it's an injector and possibly the fuel pump. I have been advised to change the injector and if the issue still occurs, to have the water pump changed. Total cost is going to be over £1100

    So last night on the way home, when the power went, I kept my foot on the accelerator to see if it would clear itself and the Engine Malfunction triangle light came on as well as the ESP light? The light that has the car and the skid marks behind it. I pulled over, turned the engine off and waited a couple of minutes. Restarted the car and it drove normally again and all the lights had gone out. Suffice to say I haven't put my foot down since and I am going to book a visit to my local garage
  5. Ford Focus Mk2 Common Problems Thread

    So just an update. I have got to the point now that if I accelerate in any gear to anywhere near 3000 rpm and sometimes 2500 rpm, I lose power as in it feels like the engine has run out of steam. As soon as I back off the accelerator, then put my foot down again, it picks up and can accelerate again. I need to get it into a garage at some point but wonder if anyone else has had the same problem on their 1.8 TDCI?

    Thank you for the info, I appreciate it

    Thanks for the info. The car was advertised with Hill start assist, which is why I mentioned it. I did wonder why the car rolled back on a hill .I guess it's best not to believe all you are told
  8. Ford Focus Mk2 Common Problems Thread

    Must be a Duratorq engine as it is definitely a diesel. I did look at the engine without my glasses on so that may explain it.... Great information, thank you. It has a FSH and was serviced not long before I bought it so I can only imagine the air and fuel filters have been changed recently. I'll have a check of the injectors, I'll check the site to find out where the batch number is on the injector. I did notice this morning that from cold it didn't seem to hold back at all but started when the car warmed up so i'll have to investigate that further too but i'll check the things you mention. To use Forscan, do I need other tools, like a laptop? I have googled it and can see it's a download but imagine you have to have something plugged into the car while you are actually driving
  9. Well i have now sold the Fiesta but the seat started working properly again one day
  10. Ford Focus Mk2 Common Problems Thread

    Hi All. I have sold my 2009 Zetec S TDCI and bought a 1.8 2009 Focus Titanium TDCI, mainly for extra space. It has the uphill assist thing going on though not sure it works as if I let my handbrake off on a hill it rolls back. Anyhow, my issue is the engine. So you guys all know it's a duratec and i need to know if there are known issues with it? It's done 72000 miles, one retired owner from new, FSH so pretty clean. However, it drives pretty badly in that it holds back in first and second gear but once it gets going it's smooth. If I put my foot down hard through the gears, in 3rd and sometimes 2nd, it hits 3000 revs then nothing, like it's in limp mode, but it isn't because if you back off for a second or 2, the power is there again. I am getting about 47 mpg average on a run, which is way down on the Fiesta's 60 mpg but not sure if that's about right or the possible problem I am having is lowering the mpg. I know I need to get ti to a garage for a plug in check, but wondered if anyone else has had this issue or knows what the possible cause could be Thanks in advance
  11. Thanks. I'll give it a go
  12. I have all of a sudden got an issue with the drivers seat in my 2 door fiesta. Up until a couple of days ago, after you pushed the back of the seat forward and then slid the seat forward to let the rear passenger out, you could slide the seat back and it would stop it the position it was set at. All of a sudden, when you push it back, it doesn't stop any more but goes right back as far as it will go. Which is really annoying. Has anyone else had or have come across this issue and if so, how was it fixed? Thanks in advance
  13. Evening all
