    Ford Fiesta Ecoboost Mpg

    Looking into possibly getting a Fiesta with the new Ecoboost engine, was just wondering if the quoted figures from Ford for MPG is anywhere near accurate. Have seen between 55-70 advertised depending on style of driving etc.
  2. Hi guys! So I recently bought a 2005 Fiesta Zetec Climate, and yesterday one of my indicator bulbs blew. I can sort that out fine, but I thought I'd check the rest of my lights at the same time, and I only have one rear fog light, and one reverse light My question, however silly it feels to be asking, is this how the car was manufactured, or is there supposed to be two for each? I know most cars only have one light for each, but I've been searching the internet trying to find out for over an hour now with no luck Thank you in advance for any help!
  3. Hello all, First post here. I recently bought a 2013 1.0l ecoboost fiesta that has full service history and one previous owner. 33k miles on the clock. I've noticed some rust and corrosion on some of the engine parts, specifically two metal connectors that seem to go from the coolant pipe to the engine and then also possibly to the radiator (?) Should i get these replaced? Would it be a fairly cheap part replacement? Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers. Cameron.
  4. Ok before I get into detail ill post the specs of the vehicle at the bottom of this post. My car is currently sitting on road broken having no idea what's really happened and it sucks because my partner needs it desperately we both have no knowledge on cars which is stupid considering its 2018, but I guess there will be some grease monkeys on here. it all started with the oil warning light on the dash board it kept flickering then going off so I just thought it would be a false negative, so I kept driving it then all of a sudden smoke came from the hud, so I stopped and checked underneath and the oil cap had melted a little there was green gunk inside and smoke was coming from the inside, I also noticed that there was black oil on top of the coolant tank so I had to check inside there too looked like there was diddly squat so I topped both units up and the car was fine then when I get to a side street all of it leaked out real fast I think coolant and the oil and the car kept getting weaker and I herd some pretty scratch banging noises so I had to instantly stop and leave it there but now It wont start at all. it isn't the first time I've had problems when I jacked the car up before for some reason the right wheel would start turning on its self without the peddle being on I don't know if that is normal or not but I thought all the information I can provide could give someone on here a more accurate idea for me. Any idea what this could be? head gasket problem maybe? what's best action to take shall I just scrap the car? Specs: Ford fiesta TDCI 1.4 mini van diesel / 180k miles / mot runs out in 10 months All help is highly appreciated from me and the partner :)
  5. Hi anyone have any idea how to get to the starter motor on a 2004 1.4 tdci fiesta van. Everyone says it is under the battery tray but seems as though mine is on the opposite side of the car right at the back of the engine. Not sure how anyone could get at it?
  6. I like the look of dual exhausts on fiestas. I’ve made an offer on the type in the attached image, second hand. Looks to replace the back section of the exhaust only. I’ll probably get the rest of the cat back and fit together. I want to increase flow if possible but there isn’t any info on the pipe diameter but claims to fit all fiesta mk7s. Anyone fitted one of these?
  7. Hi everyone, my first post here so sorry if I got it in the wrong place. I've just got a 51 plate Mk5 fiesta and I can't figure out how to reprogram the central locking key fob to my car. Could anyone help me out at all?
  8. Hey guys so i am completely new to the whole car scene however i am confused about my fiesta. So currently i have a 2015 fiesta zetec (non S) ecoboost 100BHP however i don't like the rear diffuser on it at all. Ive seen tutorials on how to switch a zetec S diffuser to an ST one but is this different to just the standard Zetec version due to it being less "sporty". Any advice or answer would help me massively as i want to put the ST one on but don't want any nasty surprises . Thanks , Alex
  9. Hi everyone, So I've had my Fiesta for just over 6 months now. The problem I'm having is that when I'm reversing, the car makes a groaning or moaning noise, as if it's struggling. Seems to have got progressively worse over the past week. Also, the difference between in reverse and out is so minute I end up grinding half the time! Has anyone else experienced this with their Fiesta? Thanks!
  10. Hi All, I've just bought an 09 plate fiesta 1.6 tdci 93bhp and am now just founding out that some ford diesels use a DPF fluid called eolys and employ a tank that adds this to the fuel to assist in the cleaning of the DPF. My car has done 79k miles and I'm not sure if it's fitted with one of these eolys tanks or not. I've failed to find any confirmation about this via the usual google search and the does not menchion it. I'm hoping someone here will know if my car has this or not and also if it is fitted with one should I be looking to get it refilled as I've read this should be done at certain intervals? Thanks in advance for your assistance.
  11. Just replaced the head gasket, timing belt, water pump, Thermostat, coolant tank and cap, oil and air filter and completely flushed and bled coolant System many times. It is a 2005 Ford Fiesta 1.25 Zetec. Engine Code (FUJB) Went for an NCT yesterday and the car had passed on everything but emissions and a coolant leak into the exhaust. they had it on the the emissions tester and revved it up and then a load of thick white smoke started coming out of the exhaust. All was running well until the NCT. car was driving perfect and still does but coolant is being burnt off. The coolant tank also expanded and popped on the way home so I'm thinking there's a block somewhere in the system and the pressure from that is somehow leaking coolant into one of the cylinders and burning off that way? From the looks of things a previous owner put the wrong rad in it as there is a dodgy looking rad hose held together by two clamps at the very bottom of the rad connecting to thermostat housing. Do you think this could be the problem? Wrong rad? Engine tends to overheat also, getting up to around 124°C on some occasions. Engine fan also only cuts in at around the 110°C to 120°C range. I had done a sniffer test previously and it had passed with no problems and then I had replaced the thermostat and housing gasket and then it started burning coolant. The car is currently parked up at a Petrol station and will be towed back today so I'll do another sniffer test to make sure head gasket is still ok. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks
  12. Hi, So I'm getting bonnet vents put in in the coming months and was wondering if it's fine to have the car running with a cone filter or if I'd need to go back to the OEM airbox as not sure about water getting into the engine and all that. Looked around some different forums to see if there was anything solid to go off of but there were mixed opinions from everyone. Another thing is the battery, spark plugs and all that, would anything need to be done or would they be fine as is? Appreciate any details, Cheers
  13. Hello, I have a Ford Fiesta Zetec 2007 (MK5) with 3 Doors. I have an issue with the passenger door shutting but showing on the dashboard as being open. It often must be slammed repeatedly in order for the car to lock properly, as the car thinks the door is open and automatically unlocks it. Sometimes while driving, the dashboard will suddenly show the door as being open, usually after going round a sharp bend. I have lubricated the latch mechanism thoroughly, but the fault still occurs. I have accessed the GEM unit below the steering wheel but there are no wires that are obviously loose/damaged. Another forum thread explained that cutting a wire and terminating it to ground/earth cures the fault as the sensor will always assume the door is shut. Can anyone confirm exactly which wire to cut and attach to ground/earth?

    MK6 Fieta Power Steering Leak

    Hi All, apologies if this is a repeated thread, I can't seem to match any of the others with my issue! My MK6 Fiesta (Pre-FL) is leaking power steering around the engine mount area, or this appears to be the location where the fluid is dripping. I have tried to chase the hose however to no avail. All of the hoses at the top end are dry, but it appears to have a problem near the engine mount area. Unsure if anyone has had a similar problem to this. Any help would be appreciated! Cheers
  15. Hi, My partner has a 63-plate Fiesta Titanium Ecoboost (face-lifted version with larger grill) Up until about 1pm today, it's been largely issue free, but all of a sudden the car will not lock with the remote fobs unless standing right next to the car. It's not been a gradual reduction in range to indicate a expiring fob battery and the issue has occurred with both fobs simultaneously, which is telling me it's a hardware issue on the car. Are there any known things to try before I book it into the dealer for the inevitable expensive diagnostic & parts replacement routine?

    2010 Fiesta Zetec

    Hi, Picking up My 2010 Fiesta Zetec today, it needs lots of TLC and a really good clean (been neglected for to long) any ideas how I can bring the best out of it ? Need bits for it, any suggestions where to get these ? Spare wheel rim, brace and jack, complete set of wheel nuts (including locking) centre caps for alloys. Want it to look stunning when all done 🤞🏻
  17. I've my current Fiesta Zetec 1.4 TDCi for 8 years now -- it's a 3-door model as when I bought it my dad had a Motability car (due to my sister having autism and learning difficulties). Unfortunately a brain haemorrhage cost him his licence in 2012 leaving me as the only driver in the family, and my current car isn't very practical when my sister comes out with us (even though she's only 4'10"!). My annual service/MOT last month also revealed an axle problem that could require an expensive and time-consuming repair in the near future, so I'm looking to replace it with a new 5-door model. I've been driving Fords for 17 years now with no major problems so I see no real reason to change manufacturers, but I'm torn on which model to go for: my mam likes the look of the EcoSport, but after reading so many bad reviews I'm wary of this model. Personally I'd rather stick with a Fiesta, although I'd have no issue in meeting her halfway by going for the Active model. I do roughly 13,000 miles per year, the vast majority of which is my commute to work in Newcastle, although I also take my mam for shopping (with my sister sometimes coming with us for a look out) on Saturdays. Every 2 or 3 weeks are so we get a big shop that currently requires some bags go on the back seat (or on the floor behind my seat). I'm also still not quite decided on whether to go for petrol or diesel although I see an increasing consensus that a mileage like mine is no longer quite enough to justify diesel – the new 1.0 Ecoboost petrol engine, road tax changes, and the prospect of Low Emission Zones and diesel tax hikes in the near future are all factors that have change in petrol's favour since 2010. I'd be interested in what thoughts the regulars here have concerning my dilemma... George
  18. Hello, I have recently bought a (new for me) 2009 Ford Fiesta Zetec from a private seller. It only has the aux port (no USB connection) and when I press the phone icon it comes up with 'MUTE' and a speaker symbol with a cross through it - same for aux. When I plug in my aux cable nothing happens my phone is unable to connect to the car and when I search for the car to sync on Bluetooth no options come up. I was really looking forward to playing my music in this car and having the hands-free option to answer my phone from my steering wheel but I am at a loss. If you could help I would greatly appreciate it. Kind regards, D

    New Owner

    Hi all. Just recently purchased a 2013 Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost Zetec S 125. Thought I'd join the Forums as I'm bound to have some questions. In fact, I already do hence arriving here. Will post in the appropriate thread. Nice to meet you.
  20. Good morning, I’m Neal. I bought a 64 plate Black edition fiesta. I love it. So checking the oil, I discover the standard dip stick has a kink in the stick, which when checking the oil it rubs on the side of the tube making my reading unreliable. Am I being an idiot? Or is there a special way to get a good reading? thank you.
  21. Hi recently had my insurance cancelled on me 😩 what’s the cheapest quotes you’ve all been given on a 1.0 (125) fiesta, first year of driving? (No black box) Any help would be appreciated!
  22. Welcome to my build thread for my brand new Fiesta ST3 (with options of reverse sensors and a spare wheel). This is my second build thread having started one last year when I did a lot of work to Eve (Focus Mk2 Zetec Climate 2.0). We’ve now become a two car household and Eve will now be Mrs P’s car – build thread here – so I’ll still be updating that one every now and then. I purchased my ST through DriveTheDeal after getting some very good advice on the forum – see this thread for more info. I ordered the car on 18th April and was told to expect to wait 10-14 weeks before delivery but received a very surprising phone call last Friday to say that I would be able to collect the car today after a wait of just four and a half weeks. I spent the weekend sorting out insurance (ended up with AXA – best price and accept my planned modifications without altering the policy) and GAP insurance (5 year policy with Easy Gap). So here he is at the dealership: There’s a tiny paint defect on the rear bumper – I tried to get a photo but couldn’t capture it effectively – so the car will have to go back for a little touch-up in the next few weeks. Other than that the car is perfect and I enjoyed my drive back home. Having learned a lot through working on Eve I’ve already got a few modifications planned and I’m not going to hang around to do them either… Over the last few weeks I’ve been very busy researching and buying parts so that I can get Bastian just how I want him ASAP. I’m really not a fan of the ST alloys, so I knew they’d have to go. After a lot of Google image searches and trawling through online car forums and wheel shops I ended up buying some Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 (which were the wheels I always wanted anyway) in Anthracite Gloss. For those who are interested the original wheels on the Fiesta ST are: Diameter 17”, Width 7J, PCD 4 x 108, Offset ET47.5, Hub diameter of 63.4mm. The Team Dynamics are: Diameter 17”, Width 7J, PCD 4 x 108, Offset ET38, Hub diameter of 73.1mm. I bought the wheels from Demon Tweeks who supplied a fitting kit (spigot rings to cater for the difference in hub diameter and appropriate nuts) and I also bought a set of McGard locking nuts. Team Dynamics recommend an offset of 38 for the Fiesta and from my research on the web, consensus seems to be that offset of 38-42 is preferable. I received the wheels a couple of days ago and had fitted the spigot rings ready for installation. So, having driven home from the dealership this afternoon, I loaded up the boot and the back seats with wheels and headed to my local tyre shop to get my alloys swapped over with just 66 miles on the clock! (The ST alloys will be up for sale soon – PM me if you’re interested). Going forward I’ve got the following modifications planned (I know I should have done the security mods first but I was too excited about the wheels): Security Install dummy OBD port and relocate original Tracker – Rewire Security TK102 and hard-wire kit Cosmetic Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 alloys Rok Blokz Mud flaps Silvatec indicator bulbs Replace number plates Performance Mountune MP215 Audio Subwoofer – Alpine SBG-1044BR 5-Channel Amplifier – Alpine MRV-V500

    Fiesta 1.25 60ps to 82ps

    Hey Could I get some clarification on the difference between the 60ps and 82ps version of 1.25 fiesta. Is there any difference at all and its just a different map? If so what would be the best way to change a 60ps to the 82ps version. Cheers
  24. Hello everyone, I currently have a 2015 Fiesta Zetec 1.25 and have purchased an ST Rear Diffuser with the spats for it, however, I don't know how to add the spats to make the diffuser fit as there are already some there. If anyone could help me I would really appreciate it. Below is an example of what the back end of my car looks like at the minute and what I want it to look like after.
  25. Realised the other day that my coolant level is below the minimum mark on my MK6 Fiesta. Would i be alright just adding some deionised water to the fluid that's already in the tank or should i go and buy the ford specified coolant/antifreeze mix and just add that? General rule is always 50/50 coolant/water mixture right? or can you just add ready mixed coolant to the tank and not use any water? not sure whether the current fluid is just 100% coolant or if its a 50/50 water coolant mix thanks. Should i; Just add deionised water to the fluid already in the tank? Buy a bottle of coolant and just add it to the fluid already in the tank? Do a complete flush out to be safe?
