  1. Do here goes. I sent my focus 1.8 tdci into the garage for a water and thermostat to be replaced the garage rang me to say that the timing belt went around the water pump and do I want the timing belt kit to be replaced which I agreed. Upon picking the car up it had a slight ticking noise and the car seem to have loads of power. About 4 or 5 days later the vehicle broke down then the garage and told me that the the chain had snapped and the crank shaft had seized. Apparently the garage didnt release that the car has a timing chain aswel. Would a incorrect timing belt make the crank shaft and timing belt slip etc Advice is much appreciated
  2. Stef123 How is the best way to check them in the car as been informed a pain in the ar** "to take out.
  3. I've got a 2008 focus 18.tdci Recently I've noticed that in a morning when cold the car takes some time to start but when it does it throws out a decent amount of white smoke which looks like a back up diesel after trying to start. When the car has started it's fine for the rest of the day. Ive been looking people are saying Glow plugs, temp sensor or starter motor. I've had the battery changed as it needed anyway. Anyone had the same problem or any ideas what it could be Cheers
