  1. Hi there, I'm new to this website and signed up as i'm having a problem with my Fiesta Zetec and wondered if anyone could possibly help me out! Basically this has only started happening in the last 2 weeks or so. I had problems trying to start my Zetec a couple of Sundays ago, almost as if the engine didn't want to start. When i finally got the car going the rev counter was going crazy and I had to rev the engine to keep the engine going otherwise it would cut out. I finally managed to get it started after 3 attempts and it was absolutely fine afterwards. However the Tuesday after, I was driving along and the car cut out, the steering went very heavy and the engine light came on but only for a second or two and then went back to normal before I could even react. I was at this point going down a hill whist braking around a corner. It's been absolutely fine since then until today when I was going down a pretty steep hill. I stopped at the traffic lights at the bottom of the hill and when i stopped, the car completely cut out. The engine and battery light came on and I had to turn the key to start the engine again. When I did, the engine started fine and I was able to travel home (thank god!) Does anyone know what this could be as i'm very concerned this could be a very costly problem. The car is absolutely fine to drive and is idling fine but this problem seems very intermittent and seems to only happen when slowing down on a hill! Any help would be appreciated guys! Thanks Josh Car Details: Ford Fiesta 1.25 Zetec [Climate] 2008

    Ford Focus 2013 Sync Issue

    Hi All, I have just purchased a 2013 ford focus Zetec S, its my first ford and so far i have been happy except a small issue with what i believe to be related to the Sync feature. My DAB radio and navigation audio works well and the sound comes through the car speakers as expected, however when i sync up my Samsung Galaxy S9 or my partners IPhone 5s i am unable to get any audio through the speakers despite the display picking up everything i do e.g. calling people, selecting play when i play audio on my phone etc. The other thing i noticed is that there is no audio (Samantha i believe its called) talking back to me or beeps or clicks when i select things or when my phone pairs for example. I have tried using the master reset option but this has not resolved the issue hence why i have come here to see if anyone can provide me with some advice. I have read online that people suggest disconnecting the battery or removing the SYNC fuse but knowing absolutely nothing about cars i am a little reluctant to start poking around. e.g. if i disconnect the battery will it affect anything else or if i pull the fuse out (67 on my model - i think) will it screw my nav up. What if i pull the wrong fuse out? Any advice would be great, thank you. Paul This image is off the internet but its exactly like mine
  4. 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!
  5. 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
  6. 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

    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

    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 🤞🏻
  9. Hi I have a question about power folding mirrors. I was checkingthe fuse box underneath the glove box and notice I have the right fuse box with one of the relays, however I have noticed the second relay is not there, but also the input to put the relay is not there either. Does anyone know why and how i can get passed this? Hope that makes sense.
  10. I own a 2009 focus zetec 1.6 petrol. I've all ways felt that the throttle seemed to be a bit laggy. And that the clutch bite has no feel to it what so ever. I had to have to clutch changed at roughly 60000 miles due to what I suspect the previous owner coasting on the clutch. The car is serviced and mot every year without fail since my ownership. Does anyone else experience this or should I have my local mechanic investigate further?
  11. Can any one help me with modifying my car? I'm pretty new to this and seems to me you can't really do them up really unless you have the zetec s any help would be much appreciated.

    Hi all, can someone please tell me what this pipe is? It's missing from mine. I have a Ford Fiesta 1.4 Zetec (2005 reg). Thanks in advance!
  14. Hi everyone, I've been having a problem with my Fiesta Zetec. Ever since I slid on some black ice and hit a kerb there is a knocking coming from the front driver side when braking, I can also feel it a bit in the brake pedal. The repetition matches the speed of the car/spin of the wheel and as I'm coming to a stop it will sound more like a creaking. It doesn't happen when I start driving, only after about 5-10 mins and also doesn't happen when braking hard. Brakes and discs have been changed since and also front tyres. Took it to ford and they said it was anti roll bar bushes, they changed them but it still happens. Took it back and they stripped down the front driver side and looked at everything, they said they couldn't find anything. Anyone had this problem and if so has it been fixed?
  15. Morning all I am the current, and proud owner of a 2007 Ford Focus Zetec Climate 3-door hatchback 1.6 petrol. It has 93 on the clock and I've wanted a Zetec S for a long time. After reading that the Zetec S models are only cosmetic upgrades and without performance upgrades, I looked into an ST instead. First, a 2007 to basically upgrade the car I have now to it's top end sport variant (07 or 57 plate, would have preferred 57 but wouldn't have been a major - but did read that these models that were registered a bit later had a few less issues). I scrapped the idea and thought I'd go for something newer. I like the newer shape Zetec S also - 2012 to 2015. The 2014 is stunning and looks amazing in that, is it Midnight Blue paint job. I have come across a 2012 Zetec S 1.0. 85 on the clock but been assured of the full Ford Service History that comes with it. I always research a car's MOT History if I am interested in it and this hasn't failed any. I have done extensive searches on Ford's 1.0 Ecoboost Engine to check reviews and reliability. I don't tend to drive like an idiot and really look after my cars. But, as a realist, I also know that can't always prevent problems. I am wondering if anybody has any horror stories - or - glory, feel good stories about this particular car. Any reasons I should steer clear or follow my stupid, car enthusiast (Focuses really 😉), stubborn heart and go for it. Thank you. Focused87

    CD eject issues Mk3.5

    Three days in with the Focus and the honeymoon is over... I’ll be contacting the dealer tomorrow but in the meantime can anyone offer any advice on a dodgy CD player? The issue is it’s taken a CD in but it won’t play or eject (I know CD’s are old hat but I was just checking everything worked) so basically it hasn’t recognised that there’s a disc in there. Its a 2015 MY with the sync system with the small non-touch screen.

    My new to me 2015 Focus Zetec S
  20. Evening all Monday coming will see me collecting my new (to me) 2015 Focus Zetec S 125 Ecoboost after 20 years of driving various diesel engined Land Rovers, a VW T5 and even a Vauxhall Zafira (but don’t hold that against me 😉). My last Ford was a 1.8 Escort Si in Amparo Blue and before that various other Escorts and Fiestas (Mk 2, 3 and 4). Hoping to pick up some ideas and tips and join in where I can along the way, cheers.
  21. Hi, can anyone recommend a diagnostic tool I should buy for my ford fiesta zetec 2003? I took my car to the garage as my engine management light came on and it turned out that my O2 sensor was faulty. I got it fixed but a few days later the engine management light came back on. I know nothing about car but I can't afford to keep on sending my car to the garage so I need to do a little of my own investigation. Any recommendations? Thank you for any help you can give, Steve
  22. Hi , let me show my car . I drive it every day
  23. 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
