  1. Sounds like something is vibrating. Maybe something has gotten loose. You could be able to locate the source of that sound by just sticking your ear near the engine bay and listening where it comes.

    Automatics

    Ford Puma is getting a dual clutch transmission with 125bhp 1.0 Ecoboost soon. No mild hybrid in this case.
  3. Just be sure that if it's the timing belt pieces blocking your oil pump mesh you change the timing belt also. I think in that thread a mechanic states that it's the timing belt pieces blocking the mesh and causing the oil starvation.
  4. I would be cautious about this since what I believe is that sludge blocking the strainer is parts of the timing belt. At least it has been like that in a few cases. This means that the belt can snap at some point.
  5. Just curious about this: Was yours the newest version of 1.0 Ecoboost ? (Fiesta mk8)
  6. I admit I could've chosen my words more wisely and been more polite. I was just ***** off because sometimes I feel people do not make any effort of finding out about things, but instead immediately ask from others. The aforementioned thread about 1.0 Ecoboost low oil pressure is the second link in Google search when typing "Ecoboost low oil pressure". I'm sorry for being sarcastic. I don't want to be that person who scares people away from asking things here. Maybe this is what I should have answered instead: Have you considered the possibility that your timing belt is breaking up and losing fibres that continuously block the oil pump mesh ? Or maybe the pump has some fibres inside it that you cannot clean without disassembling the whole pump. (if it's even possible to disassemble it?). Anyway, this thread should be useful for more questions about this topic:
  7. Maybe next time Google first instead of starting a thread about something that's been discussed here a lot before.
  8. In Finland if the engine would go boom before 10 years/150 000 miles the car dealer that sold the car would need to replace the engine, but the owner would probably need to pay some part of the bill because the car gets into better shape than it normally would be if it got a new engine.
  9. I wouldn't let the car go 10 years or 150 000 miles before changing the timing belt. Maybe 8 years or 100 000 miles more like. I've heard about timing belt fibers blocking oil pump mesh way before the belt change was due. Also Haynes manual for Fiesta 2013-2017 suggest to change earlier than 10 years/150000 miles. Don't remember when though πŸ™‚ maybe 8 years or 100 000 miles. The belt change costs about 1000-1200 € in Finland so I'd assume it's close to 800-1200 pounds in UK.
  10. Check engine light can become lit for various reasons. The coolant bubbling is normal for 1.0 Ecoboost when driven spiritedly so I would not necessarily think it's the head gasket unless more proof for that was found. You need someone to read fault codes from your car and maybe do not drive it further but take it to a Ford dealer if you're unsure of what to do next.
  11. Just press The aux Button again to switch to Bluetooth music view. At least that's how it works in my car. Your menu looks different from mine so maybe you've got an older version though. Maybe you should try to find out your sync version /software version and Google if it can be updated. That would definitely be the first step before buying any new hardware.
  12. Where I live (Finland ) the trend version of Fiesta seems to have halogen daytime running lights as default.
  13. Maybe it keeps secretly updating and rebooting itself like a Windows computer πŸ˜„ Or its just a case of Ford quality...
  14. It depends on what engine you have ? For 1.0 Ecoboost the timing belt change costs a lot. (Over 1000 € in Finland). If you got the 1.25 liter engine the price you quoted sounds ok to me, but I don't know how much cheaper or more expensive the prices are in UK.
  15. MinΓ€ has always been slightly overfilled after maintenance. Last time I checked I noticed that it also depends on which side of the dipstick you check the level πŸ˜„
