  1. Hi all, I have got a Fiesta 63 plate, with a 1.0-litre engine (Ecoboost). I had a warning light notification come up for low oil. Dip-stick checked and everything was filled okay. Whilst car was running, I removed the oil filler cap (wanted to see if oil was getting to the top of the engine; didn't seem much there; see video). What struck me was the noise - Ford has said these engines usually sound like this, but I'm not convinced. Please, could you have a listen and get back to me? I can't upload on here as there is a 2MB limit :/ Please see youtube for the video: https://youtu.be/AFK2OVs3pSU

  3. Find myself asking for help more than I’ve been able to help on here haha i put a cobra sport cat back on my fiesta ecoboost 1.0 and it sounded so good. I’ve recently part exd it for an ST, but kept the cobra exhaust. Would this fit onto the ST? i get anything can be made to fit with the right sleeves or cuts, but I’m wondering if it will just... fit? cheers!
  4. Just curious about how many miles have people done with their cars equipped with 1.0 Ecoboost engines. Also it would be interesting to hear if you've had any problems with them and what kind of maintenance/fixing the engines have required during that mileage. My car is late 2014 model Fiesta with 125 bhp 1.0 Ecoboost. It has been driven about 27 000 miles (44 000 km) now. During my ownership I've driven about 7000 miles and had no problems whatsoever. No oil consumption or leakage and no loss of coolant.
  5. Hey guys, i was driving the car today and as i revved up to 4k rpm the power dropped off, i got the above engine warning light, the power significantly dropped until i got home, i drove it 2 hours later(no engine warning after restart) and it was fine until i gave it hard acceleration and the exact same problem reoccurred. the car has 57k miles. i wont be able to have it looked at until next week, any ideas on what could be the issue? thanks in advance for the advice guys :)
  6. Recently read some posts from people passionate that REVO provide better remaps than Bluefin - anyone have any experience with both? I currently have a Bluefin remap installed on my 125ps Fiesta, but I do notice my fuel injectors sound louder? (That’s what I was told it was anyway..) so what’re people’s opinions?
  7. Strange experience today. Car got to the supermarket fine. When I powered on to go home the car started but no dashboard, radio, or lights. Got home with hand signals. Turned everything off, opened the bonnet, couldn't open the fuse box. Started the car again and all was well!! Has anybody else experienced this?
  8. Hey! i recently changed my dipped beam for a Phillips race vision and it’s nice, but not as white as I hoped :( when I had a look at the assembly, it looks like there is another bulb on when my headlight is on, is this the sidelight? Or am I looking at it wrong? If it’s the sidelight, would installing a brighter side light help boost the light? i was going to change out the sidelight, but if it’s just a case of needing HIDs for the brightness I want, I may not bother cheers!
  9. Hi all! ive been a bit of a ghost as of late, but finally back onto messing around with my car! I changed my headlights today (first time, which probably explains the damage I caused..) but I managed to snap the little clip on the headlight connector. I don’t have a photo at the minute, but it’s the connector that plugs into the headlight in the engine bay. Will this cause any massive issues? It seems pretty comfortable in there, but if I can get that clip replaced ideally I’d like to do that! any recommendations would be great!
  10. Hello, i was wondering if anyone could help me by suggesting tips to put on to the end of my tailpipe https://imgur.com/a/ZRUNk there is no cut out on my bumper unfortunately. Cheers.
  11. Just spotted this used induction kit on eBay... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Fiesta-1-0-Ecoboost-Induction-Kit/253405183172?hash=item3b00203cc4:g:bhsAAOSw1GlabGmd so thinking about putting in a bid but not sure if this is a good idea or not without a remap, my car is pretty much standard under the bonnet? read a few other posts about the importance of getting cold air into the filter than warm air from around the engine bay and how this could affect the smooth running of the engine. would really appreciate any advice on this as the auction only has a day left to run! 😳 Many thanks
  12. P0420 Error

    Hi, A garage apparently changed my cat converter last week because the engine light kept coming on.At were not sitting right and the dash had been popped out. At first, I thought they'd just took the bulb out the engine light but it still shows up when I turn the ignition on. However, this morning I scanned the car with my own diagnostic tool and it's showing the P0420 error but no engine light. Could he have disabled the engine light from the Cat converter? Thanks
  13. Hello guys over the past few months my ecoboost 1.6 has starting giving me very poor mpg lowest currently 23.9mpg!! I used to have it in the 30's at least another thing I have noticed as well is a smell of petrol through the heating vents when the car is sat stationery with engine running
  14. Hello to everyone, This is my first post to this forum, sorry for mistakes(I'm Spanish), and sorry if I had anything to do previously to post the first post... I've just bought the new Ford Fiesta ST-Line, with EcoBoost 1.0T engine (100cv/HP), and I was thinking what is the difference between the 100HP, 125HP and 140HP engines, maybe are exactly the same, but only with limitations at the ECU? With different map? If any of you have information about these engines and also if these are exactly the same as the Mk7 I will be pleased to read you, THANKS! Also, if you have a Ford fiesta mk8 with 125 or 140HP, and can take a photo of your engine to compare with mine, it will be great. Thanks to everyone.
  15. Hey folks. Just had my oil and filter change plus MOT done by Arnold Clark today ( I know... It's my last "free" one with them) and they have noticed there is a recall for my car. Apparently it is not urgent but it does need doing and I am now booked in for it on the 5th Feb. Recall code is "17S09 Recall For 1.6L GTDI Cooling system" https://ford.oemdtc.com/2754/17s09-coolant-level-sensor-system-installation-2013-2015-ford The only info I can find on this online is all American. However it seems the risk is the engine can go on fire, which I find a bit weird to be classed as "not urgent". So, is this a thing for this country? Anyone had it done? I've done a search of the forum, but it came back with nothing...
  16. Hi guys, I own a 21013 fiesta 1.0 ecoboost zetec, yesterday evening I was driving and the car just would not go into any gear. I had it towed to a garage and the issue seems to be the clutch. I don't understand how the clutch can be gone with only 52,000 on the clock. Has anyone else had any similar issues? The mechanic is saying that it needs a new bearing and a a new clutch, he's quoted me £390 for the job, does that price seem okay? Also the car is need of a service, he's quoted me £120, does that price seem okay? New clutch, new bearing, new brake pads and service, looking at a £520 bill :/ Thanks, Zak
  17. Hello guys! I've come across a slight issue with my new Crossover pipe from R-Sport. It seems there is a breather pipe of some sort which connects to the right hand side of the new crossover pipe as seen in the picture and when it came to fitting it, this hose will kink badly, blocking all air from passing through. This obviously in turn will put the car straight into limp mode. I've tried all sort of ways of connecting this hose but it just seems to bend and kink. Has anyone else had this issue and managed to overcome this? I really don't want it to be the case of £100 wasted. Any help will be brilliant, thanks.
  18. Hi, I bough a used Fiesta with 125bhp Ecoboost couple of months ago. Since I'm aware that the engine can get destroyed in a case of coolant loss I decided to have a closer look at it today. I noticed that the coolant hose that is going from turbo to the radiator has been worn out a bit by the heat shield that is protecting it. The head shield has bitten 1-2 mm into the hose and I see that it might potentially cause a slow coolant leak. For now I haven't lost any coolant but since these engines seem to need a proper cooling all the time I'm a bit worried of these kind of small imperfections in the cooling system. Im going to get my hose changed asap. Below is a picture of the hose and the heat shield.
  19. Ecoboost or 4 Pot?

    Hi all, looking to trade in an existing car we have for another fiesta, but a basic and early facelift version. Is the difference in price between the 1.0 100ps and 1.25 worth it for a car that'll only be kept for 3 years max and used as 15 mile round trip taxi? Anything to watch out for on 40k mile versions of either of the above? I've got a 1.0 140ps and had a 1.25 but neither were near 40k miles and the 1.25 was too long ago to remember. Any help appreciated, thanks
  20. Hello I'm a portuguese 22y/o guy that recently bought a 5/2017 Ford Fiesta (that I think it's 7.5 cause I don't see 100% accurate info). I hope I can find here good information to make some visual/engine changes to my car in order to get it the way I love. and of course help the way I can the other members. Greets Carlos Gonçalves
  21. Supraking's Zetec S 125

    hey folks, gunna re do this post as photobucket put a stick in the works so my candy blue zs got it a year and half ago with 12k on the clock, now getting close to 26k sailed through two mots and has only needed a set of front tyres when i got it i cleaned it to within an inch of its life, clay bar, full wheel off clean type of job. and have pretty much just been keeping on top of that over the time ive had it the only mods done to it so far are a colour coded ST diffuser and a debadge and that brings us up to today, did the vinyl number plate thingy, had to cheat a little bit, doing it myself meant the full width wasnt working. its a tad rough around the edges, but you have to get close to notice
  22. Problems with 'SYNC media'

    Hi all, I'm currently having issues using the SYNC media function in my fiesta ecoboost. My android phone connects to SYNC via Bluetooth as usual but when I go to listen to music the message 'play music from device' appears. It does not say connect a bt device so I'm unable to play any music through my phone. This did happen to me a few months back where I ended up using the AUX instead and then it magically started working again. If anyone know what this is please advise as it's getting a bit annoying now. Kind regards, TheScoobyCollector.
  23. Mk7 Fiesta Heater Problem

    Hi, I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction as to what the issue is with my Heater. The heater/blower blows cold air regardless of what temperature the heat is set to until the power is set to number 4 where you can hear a 'pop' type of sound and then will blow out red hot air. Then the only way to get cold air back is to completely turn off the blower and wait for another popping type of sound and the heater will then blow out cold air. Does anyone have any idea as to what this issue is as it's getting pretty frustrating trying to equalise red hot air with cold. Thanks
  24. Hey all, basically looking for some info with different Remap companies for my Ford Focus St-Line 1.5T 150bhp. I am really interested in the Superchips remap system (Bluefin) but am told Ford can pick it up on Warranty. Someone also told me Revo are another good brand to look at. Looking for advice and hopefully someone has the same engine or similar and gas had a remap. Does it male a difference? Is it worth spending the £400 for the extra 40-50bhp? Any advice given would be much appreciated. Thanks
  25. Ecoboost Rattle?

    Does anyone else’s ecoboost focus have a rattle at the low end when putting the revs on? If I’m stationary and put my foot down, not hard, there’s a rattle as the revs increase. Not sure if it’s somethibf loose inside the car, something rattling in the engine or if it’s all perfectly fine and that’s what they do? It sounds like a chain rattling. I’ve filmed it and uploaded it here if anyone can advise?
