  1. Hi, new member here, sadly first visit is with an issue. Have a 2008 2.0tdci estate with manual 6 speed. Problem I’m having is that all gears work as usual except for second. Lever moves into position but no drive or noises. Is this a common problem on these? I’m guessing either linkage out of adjustment (hopefully) or something serious has happened inside the box. Anybody had any experience of this? Any advise on the matter would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Good evening, First time here! I have a 2008 Ford Fiesta Style Climate which has done approx. 78,000 miles. Not long after I brought it, it started 'chugging' whilst driving and idling and eventually the amber 'cog' light came on on the dashboard, the car went into limp mode and I had to get towed home. It has since been to the garage where is flagged up injector 2 to be faulty. So a new injector later and a few weeks of driving it, the same thing happened again, flagging up injector 2 again. Back to the garage it went where is has been since May (yes, really). He's a good mechanic whom we trust so not worried about getting taken advantage of. After speaking to him now, he has had the whole dashboard and computer, keys and everything sent off for testing and subsequently fixing. Now the car does seem better as long as you warm it up before going on a journey (which we tend to do anyway out of habit i.e. not taking off straight away and flooring it!) however there is still something not quite right with it and it still does 'chug' every now and then. Our mechanic now seems to think that it is something wrong electrically as it went through the MOT absolutely fine and flew through emissions so indicates that the engine and everything is fine. However, looking for the electrical fault it like looking for a needle in a haystack. Does anyone on here have any experience with this issue or have any ideas as to what it could be?! Some people have talked about similar problems but have not posted back with any solutions. Someone suggested the wiring loom but never posted back as to whether it worked or not or a Forscan reset. Any help would be much appreciated! ETC
  3. Hi everyone - i was driving home from work today and coming upto my home i put my foot down in 3rd and as the turbo engaged it immediately jolted and then 'engine malfunction' showed on my dash. So as i came to the lights before my road i stopped and turned the engine off and then it would not start again. Just turned over until after about three trys it made a clicking sound. So i gave up pushed her back and called green flag. They subsequently told me i had a flat battery and without seeing the malfunction they had no advice for me, the fella even red lined it to no avail. I drove to the gym before and it was fine. Turbo perky as usual and no weird noises (for a diesel with 107000 miles on it) Any advice would be welcomed. 2009 Ford Focus 2.0 TDCI Titanium Thanks.
  4. So... as promised New Car, New Thread! As with the last one, this isn't a project thread, as I'm not planning on doing too much to it! But I do have some small things planned for the car, so will use this to keep everyone updated! The things include: K&N 57s kit (luckily I can use the one off the ZS!) Remap (Bluefin or otherwise, maybe a custom one if I’m feeling particularly frivolous with cash) some colour coding, not sure what colour or what exactly yet! Maxton Or TripleRComposites front splitter Maxton Rear RS Style Diffuser Carbon Gel Badges all round De-Tango front and rear end (Chrome Bulbs already bought!) Hydraulic Bonnet Struts CEUK LED Reverse Light Upgrade and a little surprise mod... that will be secret for now! That’s it for now, the car is staying with me for a while! So there’s plenty of time for all this to happen. So to add to the history, carrying on from before... First Ford I owned, was a 1.4CVH Fiesta Freestyle... First Car, did me well for 3 years! My Second was the Mk1.5 Focus Edge 1.8TDCi 115.. I owned her for 8 years in total! Had ST170 Cosmetics (Lower Grille with TDCi Badge on, Headlights, Foglights), colour coded front grille surround, Twin Reverse Light Conversion, De Badged, Mondeo ST Rear Badge. Dragon CRDII Tuning Box, see graphs above, gained about 10bhp and 40lbft! I knw not as good as a map, but we all make rookie mistakes when young lol! K&N Panel Filter. I had some ST170 alloys too, that i bought about a month before things went wrong! Loved this car, still do! I hope whoever bought it at the auction does her proud, and makes a nice little project from her! The next car, which was bought as a replacement when the 1.8 blew up on the side of the A1 was my Focus Mk2.5 1.6TDCi 110 Zetec S, She has a K&N 57s filter, colour coded front bonnet lip, carbon badges all round, custom Zetec S door sills, twin reverse light conversion, S badges all round, footwell lighting, among some other bits. I never got round to remapping this one, or adding cruise control! Sadly she’s become uneconomical to repair after the MOT, and with some other bits that needed doing, an electrical fault that’s impossible to find! It causes the headlights to flash on their own, the temp gauge to swing around like a kid in a playground, and numerous weird things with my dashcam and the traction control being almost super sensitive! Add everything together that needs doing, and it was time for it to go! So... the moment you’ve all been waiting for, onto the new one... My Car Number 4, which is my Ford Number 4, and... Focus number 3! Members of FOC, please meet... TDCiST’s Focus mk3.5 TDCi ST... Bout time I had a car that matched the username!!! I pick her up on Wednesday!
  5. How’re things, new to this. I have a question regarding putting the 2.2tdci lump from my Mondeo into my mk1 focus tddi, I’m not too fussed getting it in just wondering does anyone know if the driveshafts from the Mondeo can be used on the focus hubs ? or would it be a matter of knocking the outer joints off and putting the focus ones on the Mondeo drives ? Any info appreciated, thanks

    Ford Fiesta Ghia Tdci 2006

    Hi looking for some technical advice here. My Ford Fiesta Ghia wont start, I’m a learner driver so this car isn’t in frequent use. The battery started to go flat and after jump starting it everything appeared to be fine. After starting it everyday for a week to check that the battery wasn’t going flat, one day the car wouldn’t start at all. Initially, we believed the cause to be the battery. After buying a brand new one and installing, the car still won’t Crank and start. The radio lights etc come on and work, but when turning the key there is nothing there at all. can anyone offer some guidance? This is my first car and am stressed about having a huge garage bill. It would be useful if anyone could suggest some things to try to at least rule out some possible faults. Thanks in advance
  7. Does anyone have good knowledge of starter motors? Are they different with a start / stop system? Almost certain that mine is goosed and looking for a replacement.

    Car won't start

    I drove my car as normal, went to work, finished to go home and car wouldn't start (not the first time this has happened). The start power button, on first press, displays all dashboard lights, radio, wipers etc but when you push clutch into start, once glow plugs have heated up, there is just a faint click. I left it for 12 hours, returned and the car started fine and is still working fine now. I have carried out battery and alternator checks which show as being fine. Key fob battery has been changed. Has anyone else had this problem with their focus? Possibly a dodgy starter motor? Could this be a glow plug issue? I would hope that a 64 plate focus would not require new plugs. Someone has mentioned to me the anti theft system. When I tried to start it the other day, the key was not in my pocket, it was in a bag in the back of the car, wondering if this triggers something. Anyone able to shed some light on this issue?
  10. Hi All, First of all, I own a 2009 Ford Focus 1.6 TDCI Zetec with about 119k miles on the clock. Over the weekend I had my NCT for the car. My last NCT was 2 years ago about a week before I bought the car. During the emissions test as part of the NCT, there was a big cloud of smoke and they pushed my car out of the test center. When I called down to the desk to see what was going on I was told by the mechanic that to get the emissions test, they need 2 recording at high rpm (he didn't say an exact figure). The first one worked fine and on the second 'the revs ran away' and they could not restart the car. I went out and tried to start the car and it did start, albeit very rough to get going. Driven about 50 miles since, started and drove normal since. There are 2 codes coming up on Forscan after the incident, not sure if related: PCM - P0336-22 (CKP Sensor A circuit) ABS - U2023-A0 (something to do with ESP light) I rang the mechanic and he is going to have a look at the car later this week, seems to think its burning oil and this was a diesel runaway. I did a bit of googling on diesel runaway (what it is and the warning signs). I found this forum thread: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=298060 This seems to state that warning signs include: - fluctuating idle RPM - excess oil consumption - oil in the intake - excess oil pooled up in the intercooler I have never experienced the first two of these. My car used about 300ml of oil in 6.5k miles between the last oil change. From looking around this is absolutely normal. However when I changed the air filter last I did notice the intake pipe had a coating on oil on the inside. Now this was not excessive pooling but it was enough to show up on my finger if I wiped it. The other thing that strikes me is that one posts seems to think this could be perfectly normal if the oil pools up over time in the intercooler from babying the car (which I am definitely a culprit of I rarely drive above 2k RPM for any prolonged period). Anyway, to cut this short, is there anything I could check? I thought about checking to see if the intercooler was pooled with oil but other than that I don't know. I have the day off work tomorrow so I have plenty of time to investigate. I'm not a car expert and I'm good at following instructions. Worst comes to worst and the car is burning oil, is this fixable or is the car destined for an early grave? Thanks

    1.6TDCI econetic clutch

    Hi guys, I am brand new to the forum so please accept my appologies if i have posted in the wrong section/ in the wrong way. Just want a little advice. Last week i handed my 2015 VW Polo petrol back to the finance company and bought a 2013 Fiesta Zetec TDCI 1.6 econetic with 34k on the clock. It is a lovely car, really nice to drive but i have noticed that the clutch pedal is a bit heavy. When i say heavy i mean in comparison to the petrol Polo iv been driving since brand new. I think it is more than likely just feeling heavy because i am not used to it but i have read horror stories of a heavy clutch pedal meaning its on its way out!! Is it normal for the fiesta diesels to have a heavy clutch pedal? Any help/advice would be hugely appreciated. thanks!

  17. Hi there, I am currently looking for an induction kit for my Mk6 Fiesta Zetec S 1.6 TDCI and am having no luck all I could find were better panel filters. Anyone know where I might find one?
  18. Hi guys I've been having a bit of trouble for a while now with starting. It's really intermittent, although it has become progressively more frequent. It will happily crank over and sounds as if it's about to start then fails. This can repeat quite a few times (10+ in the worst cases) until it starts. If it's taken a few goes to get it running then you will get some white smoke from the exhaust - this is the unburnt fuel, so it is definitely injecting fuel even though it won't start... As I said this has been going on for a while, maybe 6 months now. Initially it was a case that the problem may happen a couple of times a month and it would always start on the second attempt. More recently it's happening much more frequently, and regularly requires quite a few attempts before it will start. I've had in on the diagnosis machine (I'm quite lucky and have free access to one). No error codes, nothing, nada. Even had the diagnosis machine on it during starting while it was having the issue and everything is as it should be (i.e fuel pressure is good, all sensors are a go). The diagnostics also confirmed that the engine is perfectly balanced when running, no misfires or anything like that. There is not a single issue while the car is running, it's purely a starting issue. Fuel economy is as good as ever, runs perfectly and the speedo rev counter are accurate. I've gone ahead and replaced both the camshaft and crankshaft sensors now but this hasn't helped at all and it's still happening. I'm confident it's nothing to do with the glow plugs (it started fine mostly during the winter) and the issue happens both during hot and cold. As in, the issue is so intermittent that it can occur after a two hour cruise on the motorway when you stop at a service station, or in the morning. It's seems unrelated to hot or cold ambient or engine temperatures and how long you've left it sitting does make a difference either. Wet or dry doesn't make a difference either. I'm all out of ideas and can't think what else could even begin to cause the issue. It appears to be electrical, but what else is involved in the starting process that could affect it? Any ideas / thoughts / experience of the same issue are all welcome! Just to be clear it's a 57 plate 2.0 TDCi Focus with around 70k on the clock. Thanks Rob
  19. Here is a simple guide on how to replace the diesel fuel filter on a mk3 Mondeo ST 2.2 TDCI without any starting problems! I believe the 2.0 TDCI Mondeo MK3 uses the same filter as does the 1.8 TDCI focus MK1 You will need: 8mm and 13mm sockets (optional) Ratchet (optional) Fuel filter - Bosch 0 450 906 508 my old Bosch filter has part number 1 457 434 442 and is slightly different. A large syringe. I used a 60ml syringe. Fresh diesel Rags This can be done with only a few rags and a syringe or if you wish to have extra room to work you will need an 8mm socket and a 13mm (deep preferably) socket and ratchet. In my guide I have removed the metal brace for clarity and to show how its done if you so wish to do it this way. So you will need a new fuel filter, I bought a Bosch filter as they make the original and at less than half the Ford price it's a no brainer. A Bosch filter can be had for around £20 including postage. I change my fuel filter every 12-18 months, covering approx 20k miles a year. Lets have a look at the filter: (note the arrows and port sizes) Next you will need to open the bonnet and look at the rear of the engine on the left hand side, you should see the filter hiding down there. Remove the 7 nuts/bolts holding the metal brace and remove it completely (5x 13mm head nuts and bolts, 2x 8mm bolts) And you should be left with this For the next stage it is advisable to cover the alternator with some rags as there will be some spillage and it WILL drop onto the alternator. The clips holding the fuel pipes onto the filter now need to be released, simply push the 2 locking clips using 2 fingers (no need for any tools - they are very simply to release) and push the clip forward. once its unlocked pull the clip out as far as it will come. Do this for all 3 pipes then pull the pipes off and move them slightly so they are not in the way of the filter coming out, you will have some diesel leaking out now. Now that the pipes are disconnected, pull the filter upwards, noting that the filter is housed in a metal bracket which slides onto 3 plastic clips.You might find the filter comes out without the metal housing, even better if it does. You should be left with this: (I have started removing the filter from the metal housing) Remove the old filter from the bracket and discard of it safely - mind it is full of fuel. Now have your missus stand holding the filter while you fill/prime it with diesel. Remember to fill it on the inlet port as you don't want any dirt getting to the injectors! Once the filter is full (took about 400ml IIRC) you might see the level drop down again - don't worry about this yet, its just the paper element soaking in the diesel. Once the filter is full, refit it to the metal bracket and then slide the assembly back into the car making sure it catches all 3 clips - this can be tricky. Once its back in and secure, you can top up with diesel if required and fit all 3 pipes again - noting that the smaller port goes to the front. the pipes simply slide back on and when fully home just push the clip back in to lock it. Remove your rags from the alternator and clean up any mess. Refit the metal brace then stand back and look at your shiny new filter: Now its time to start the car, and if you have followed this guide correctly it WILL start first time and continue running no problem. Leave the car idling for a minute to check for leaks, test drive after this if you so desire. Stick the tools back in the shed, wash the hands and grab a beer! :) Well done you have just changed your fuel filter - should take around 10-15 minutes. Here is a pic of the old filter part number: If you are changing the fuel filter on your car, you do so at your own risk. I take no responsibility for any damage caused and you should always fully understand the risks of whats involved before you start.
  20. Hello all, Basically I loved my 2010 FORD FOCUS DIESEL HATCHBACK 1.6 TDCI STYLE 5DR [110] [DPF] MANUAL and had it up to 119500 miles. It regularly got up to 54-56 mpg when commuting 5mins on country roads, 20mins motorway driving. It was sitting at 53.6mpg when I sold her privately last night :( After a year of looking and waiting for the right car/deal I decided the time was right to upgrade and bought a private 2012 FORD FOCUS DIESEL HATCHBACK 1.6 TDCI 115 TITANIUM 5DR MANUAL (ECOnetic) version. It has 69000 miles, full service history and last weeks MOT shows 0 advisories. I am only getting 48mpg :( I am gutted about this. When asking fellow focus mk3 1.6 diesel users they are also getting 48/49mpg. I regularly use the cruise control at 70/74mph on motorway driving and think I drive efficently. The last service was 6months ago by a small garage in lancaster where i bought it. Is there a good chance the MPG on my new titanium focus will improve if I put the car through an arnold clark full service? I also miss the 2010 style's steering options of comfort, standard and speed :( I am wondering if I can do anything to improve the MPG? without doing silly stuff like driving down hills with no accelarator etc. Let me know if you need more information. Thanks very much Shaun
  21. Hi All, I thought I would try and make this more open to the public as Ford seem to be doing everything they can to not tell customers about this issue. I own a 58 plate (Registered 09) Ford Focus 1.8 TDCI Duratorq, since the car was new it has suffered from 2 issues. Issue 1 - While driving on the motorway the car will have intermittent hesitations when accelerating. This will usually happen then naturally allowing the car to decrease speed by taking your foot off the accelerator then applying it again. This can also happen when just cruising in 5th. Issue 2 - This cannot be replicated however randomly you can get a violent jolt forward with the error displayed on the dash "Engine Malfunction". The car will go into limp mode then when you pull over turn the ignition off, wait a minute and start again will be cleared and free to drive normally again. My car has been into Ford for this issue during its warranty period and after it expired to be told there were error codes relating to a particular injector however they were telling me all 4 needed replacing at £1500. The issue was so intermittent and could go months without it happening I have not yet had them replaced. I cover 350 miles a week commuting and can got weeks/months with no occurrences of this. Ford have never told me about a known issue with the injectors until recently when I took my car to the Ford dealership in Eastleigh, Hampshire. One of their service department told me they were aware of a known issue with a batch of injectors ending in the part number 3. While my car was in for diagnostics they advised all 4 of my injectors ended in 3 and would need replacing at guess what... you got it £1500. I argued that surely if this was a known issue with a bad batch Ford should replace these. They said not and the car is out of warranty so I will have to foot the bill. I asked whether there was any documentation on this however they said no, even their customer services director categorically told me nothing existed after checking with their service desk. I have since found out online and from help from the guys on this forum and other that there is in fact a TSB (technical service bulletin) released by Ford documenting which cars are affected and saying what I had been told about the injectors ending in 3. The TSB is TSB 27/2012 dated 14/05/12 and affects 1.8L Duratorq-TDCi (Lynx) engines between 2008/2009. It affects the Focus, Mondeo, C-Max, Transit connect and Tourneo. The title of the bulletin is "Excessive combustion noise and or hesitation during light load acceleration with the engine at high operating temperature". I don’t believe I can post the bulletin in full due to copyright however I can pm this to anyone interested. The bulletin states that there are PCM calibrations released to try and help the injector nozzle performance however Ford failed to tell me about the TSB or the PCM calibrations once in all the times my car was in for diagnostics. I have raised a complaint with Ford regarding this however they are unwilling to replace the parts at their cost, I have told them I am willing to pay for the labour however I don’t feel I should foot the bill for the parts given they were fitted from brand new faulty. I have so far got them to discount the price from £1500 to £1100 then recently a further 30% off this price. Still not happy as still leaves me with a £6-£700 bill to replace faulty parts they fitted. I would advised contacting Mark Ovende via this email address - movende1@ford.com He is the MD at Ford Motor Company. Mark will not respond however you will get a call back from the Ford Head Office. I was initially told they wouldn’t do anything however after continuous emails and phone called I have got them to discount the total initial quote by around 50%. It appears Ford are doing whatever they can to not tell customers about this issue so they have to pay out a fortune to replace parts that were not fit for purpose. Ford should issue a recall as this affects a lot of cars and is potentially dangerous. The fact they are not even telling customers there is a PCM update which could help is shocking, the go straight for the replacements instead. A free or £95 PCM update or £1500 to replace all 4 injectors....... disgusting. I want to try let as many people know about this as I can so they dont get lied to and forced into spending thousands when a PCM update might fix it. Ford should replace these parts at their cost not the customers regardless of warranty on the car. This whole situation has put me off buying another Ford especially from the dealerships I have dealt with. Regards Allister
  22. Hi All, I am hoping to provide some help to others following some recent events. I recently bought a used Mondeo titanium X sport 2.2 TDCI and loved it. However I always had a slight niggle in the back of mind that something wasn't quite right... To begin with MPG values were very low, followed by an intermittent loss of fuel level on the dash display. On a couple of occasions the fuel level would not come back & an engine malfunction error would display. This occasionly caused the car to go into limp mode. This normally always reset itself after restarting the car. On another day the car started and idled very low, it would stall whenever trying to pull away and white smoke bellowed from the exhaust. This again cleared after restarting the car. After some diagnosis it was found that the fuel level sensor & low pressure fuel pump was faulty causing multiple symptoms. This has been replaced today and already the car feels brand new ! MPG was up to 45+ on the drive home & I'm very happy to have warranty on the vehicle as it would have cost me in excess of £700 ! A new lease of life for my car. Hopefully this can help others with similar symptoms. I still need to monitor this and will provide updates if symptoms continue.
  23. Afternoon all, Bit of a long and conviluded story here but please bear with me because I'm just smashing my head off the wall try to find out what the problem is; and I'm just terrified to take to the only Ford Garage within short driving range (and it's Arnold Clark - oh dear) for them to smack me with a massive bill. I've come home after 3 and a half months at sea and I've started the car up and left her for 30 minutes to get everything all lubed up again - the grandfather had been turning it over but not running it during my stint away - and summarily set off on a wee jaunt. Got to the bottom of the hill of my street (0.5 miles away) and then everything started going off it's head. My radio turned on and off, the dash started flashing like a christmas tree on smack and then my Power Steering and ABS shut down completely. I got the car parked up and then turned her off. Tried to turn her back on again and *click, click, click* the battery was dead. I assumed it was a dud battery as I'd been away for so long so I went and got a brand new one from halfords - installed it, the car started and away I went again. The next day - same story, got her started, running and got her a mile down the road and boom, same problem. But this time with a rather prominent electric-burning smell. Car shut down on her own this time and hasnt started since. She's now been sitting for a week seeing as Im running through a college course and havent had the time to work on her but, my question is: what could this be? I thought maybe the Alternator? But the father in law (mechanic- - 20 years+) has said it could be the PS Pump (but this model has EPS and doesn't need one of those surely?) or just a bad grounding wire. Does anyone on here have a better idea of what this could be? Cheers :)
  24. I'm getting new wheels for my focus mk2, also dropping it 30mm on eibach pro kit springs. Have a few wheel options in mind including 18 inch 2016 rs rep wheels, 2016 18'' st reps and genuine ford kuga wheels. Has anyone any pictures of a focus mk2 with 19 inch kuga Wheels? I'll attach pic below. Thanks
  25. Hi I'm getting new alloys for my focus mk2 pre facelift. I'm lowering it 40mm with eibach pro kit springs and getting 18 inch wheels. Although I like the mk2 st alloys I don't wanna be a sheep and look like every other focus. Has anyone any idea how the mk3 rs alloys would look ?? Any pics??? Or even other suggestions, I'll post the alloys in talking about below. Thanks
