  1. looking at them now although the 1.6 is a little off putting after reading about problems. maybe another fusion 1,4 lol
  2. thanks for that. I didnt realise the they all had the same. I like the height and look of fusion but they are a bit basic. focus does look nice guess a regular service is essential
  3. Hi all my 1.4tdci fusion has been written off today so I need to replace. I travel 300 miles aweek and need fuel economy. Ive seen some good deals on the years 2008/09 on the 1.6 models. The help I need is what is the more reliable motor, the focus cmax or fusion. I know the 1.6 fusion suffers the imjector seal issue as did my previous 1.4 but i enjoyed over 60mpg and I got that upto 160k and 35k of that was mine. seals never leaked but at pull away you could always smell some exhaust fumes with window open for around a minute. only repair i ever made to it was clutch and inlet manilfold rings. found a nice 2008 focus but have read some pretty dire things about the 1.6. But I need the cheaper road tax and MPG
  4. its fixed. was just the rubber
  5. So took manifold off and think I have found source of leak and whoosh. The rubber oring in that corner is buggered. Pic attached. Gonna clean put back together will let you know if fixed.
  6. Hi thanks running is ok but i do have a loud whoosh when accelerating. All pipes are ok. Im thinking of removing rocker manifold to investigate. Im guessing where ever the hissing is coming coming is pushing it out to the pipes.
  7. Interesting taking pictures into manifold from them pipes and spotted this rather wet patch
  8. I have the 1.4tdci duratorq engine and standing in front of car looking at engine the rear left is wet top to bottom also with spray/splatter onto brake servo and pipes. Assuming its oil but pipes are ok. Could it be diesel. The injector seal area is a little gunky but dry. Any ideas where its coming from? Where to look? Is it worth removing rocker cover checking the orings on manifold. Also when driving i get a faint smell of exhaust only when windows open. When i stop i get a small wiff of diesel
  9. Did you resolve the issue
  10. Hi did you resolve this problem. I have a hissing and a leak from mid engine drivers side
  11. Could a leaky injector seal make a loud wooshing noise?
  12. Hi yes this is my first ford diesel. Never had it on my vauxhall dti. Thanks for info ill double check it all
  13. So having a look around stood in front of car looking at engine I can feel some air and the back left. Cant see why
  14. Hello all. Im new to ford and have started off purchasing a fusion zetec 1.4 tdci. Performance seems really good for a 1.4. Problem is when driving and getting upto speed you can hear a vacum type noise. Lots of air been sucked..when cruising gently can't really hear it. Is this likely to only be a hose? Thanks guys
