  1. Good evening all. After around a 2 year hiatus from the forum, I'm back and delving under the bonnet once again! I'm looking to replace the PCV valve on my MK2 1.6 TDCI, which I believe is the culprit of the river of oil slowly forming in my air intake hoses leading to the turbo. The Haynes manual makes no mention of the valve even being present in my vehicle and I can find no signs of guides or explanation on the web suggesting how to remove it. How do I remove and replace the valve? Is it a simple twist off the cap and pull out the valve? In the image below you can see the breather hose exiting the PCV at the right of the engine, atop the oil separator to the right of the oil filling cap. Any tips would be greatly appreciated, Sam
  2. another air con problem.... on my 2010 fiesta, I noticed the air coming from the vents isn't very cold. So I used a kitchen probe to get an accurate reading from the centre vents. During the recent warm weather, during the day it was coming out at about 13 degrees whilst idling. But I've tested it at about 6pm today, outside temp was 17, and the air con was quite steady at around 7 degrees whilst idling. then I upped the revs to 1500, 2000, and 2500 respectively. What I noticed was as the rpm rose, the temperate rose to about 8 degrees, but then once I held the throttle steady, the temperature then came back down to 6.8 degrees. lovely and cold. but I cant get this nice low temperature during the day. it has recently been topped up with refrigerant. I've watched the compressor, and the clutch seems to be working, although it does come on and off I noticed during the warmer temperature, but it was constantly on when I took the 17 degrees evening reading. The low pressure pipe feels lovely and cold, and you can see the condensation. the fan is working perfectly well. whats thrown me is its not working properly when the weather warms up, if it was consistently abnormal id have it in the garage as soon as.

    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!
  4. Noticed as the weather is warming up, when I turn on my air con on a 2010 fiesta, its not exactly cold. So I opened her up, ran the air con and noticed that the compressor clutch at the end of the compressor, seemed to be intermittent. It would run for maybe 5 seconds, then disengage for maybe 2 seconds, then start again, and this is a continuous cycle, so the likely cause of the lack of cold air. having seen how expensive these are, is this an issue that can be fixed rather than replaced? if so, has anyone had this issue and been quoted for the fix.
  5. Hey, Throwing this out there for anyone who may know. Recently the ac & recirculate buttons on my focus (2012 Mk3) stopped working. They usually light up when pressed, but no light and no function. Fans work fine tho. Checked the fuses (all 3 locations), all looked fine relating to aircon. My mate said the gas might be low; but it;s only been running for 5 years and I have no warning lights. Is that possible? Cheers,
  6.

Thanks

    Going for an air intake!

    Hi all! my next mod wants to be an air intake. The problem is i have been reading and reading since weeks and veeeryy confused. First, im not even sure if its good to change the OEM air filter, and if it really gives performance. Then, they are sooo many in market that i dont know which to go for. I have been looking at graham goode, j1, AS, ITG, etc... actually more then an agressive sound im kinda looking at one that gives me more blow off sound (as i got the turbosmart bov installed). And for last! It seems like the best one out its the r-sport stage 3? This one: cheers!!
  8. Hello everyone! I bought a after market spoiler from eBay (I know), it bolt/screws in and was just curious if anyone else has installed one of these. I'm just worried I may hit a wire when drilling into the boot lid. The item I have a 3dr mk6.5 so it seems it will fit. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Air box Upgrade

    Hello, I am looking for some information regarding upgrading the lower half of my air box to the ST250 or RS lower air box with the duel (Top & Bottom) air entrances (Picture 1) I have a 2014 Focus 1.0 Zetec S with the single (Top) air entrance (Picture 2) Is this a straight swap? Thanks

    Cold air intake??

    So I just bought a 2006 mk6 fiesta zetec s, and it feels like it may be running a little rougher than usual, I've many opinions and 99% of them had said get a cold air intake. Now I'm bit of an amateur when it comes to upgrades and modifications, but does anyone know of any realiable kits that won't break the bank? Thanks *open to alternate suggestions*

  12. Hi gang, Has anyone had any experience of replacing the stock panel air filter and box on a MK2.1.6TDCI with a cylindrical performance filter like the K&N 57s-4000? I could opt for the box-free cone but I'm much more excited by the idea of the cylinder. I'm mainly wondering if the airbox lid of the K&N would be a direct fit to the existing box, and if any additional piping would be necessary. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance, Sam.
  13. few months ago i changed my fuel filter on my 1.6 tdci focus 09. (econetic), spilt a bit of fuel and then thought i had an odd smell in the cabin when using the air system. kept an eye on that, and that seems all fine theres no sign of a leak and hoses are attached perfectly. ive had this smell a while now and am running out of ideas. today i changed the oil, and i had to remove the air inlet hose to the engine to access the fuel filter, this is attached to the turbo and the air filter housing, and i noticed when i removed it, there was liquid inside it. and it smelt of this smell that ive been getting inside the car when the air is on, you can also smell this odour standing in front of the engine when its running. the odd thing, is this smell only comes into the cabin, when the air is from the outside. when i have the air to be recirculated, the smell doesnt came in. any ideas? ive just read that a possible sign of an EGR being stuck open is a "slight or strong smell of fuel"
  14. Hi guys! very new to this but I'm trying to work out how to put a cold air intake on my fiesta? I have no idea where it would go (not much space under the bonnet) and also that that my air box as it stands is part of my engine cover. I have tried looking for a non air box engine cover but have come to no avail, so help would be much appreciated and if possible photos would be great! Thanks, Rhys 2005 Ford Fiesta zetec s
  15. I changed the fuel filter about a week ago, but after i primed the fuel filter, i had a spillage of diesel. im not entirely sure but i think i can smell something odd when the heating is on in the car, although the odd smell only begins to appear when the air is hot, when i run it after getting in i dont notice anything until the cabin is warm, theres no funny smell when its cold. my wife seems to think theres nothing different to before, she says it smells like it always has, even though ive asked her to give it a good sniff right infront of the air vents, as its not an overly strong smell, and i did my best to wipe up everything i could see when i had the spillage. so is it possible that some of the fuel i spilt could be in the air system somehow? and can i get rid of it? im not even sure its diesel i can smell myself. If its any help. the car is an 09 ford focus and the fuel filter is located just to the right of the engine, just under the fresh air intake
  16. Hello all, I've recently passed my driving test and got a Fiesta finesse which was registered in 03 I noticed about a week after buying it that a pipe is missing. I took it back to the dealer and they said that was how the car came to them and that It doesn't need the pipe. I'd rather have the pipe so I have been looking online for the part, but I can't find it anywhere.. I have attached some images. The manual says it goes to the air cleaner. Anyone got any ideas?
  17. Hello, I currently have a 2009 ford fiesta 1.6 tdci. Can anyone tell me what part this motor is called that controls the direction of where the air blows in the car. Currently it keeps jumping and turning all the way around to the point where the plastic fixing and metal rod pop off as it catches on another part. Please see picture attached. Many Thanks
  18. Hi People I have the Fiesta 1.6 MK6 Engine in a Ford Fusion 03 . The car Idle always had a fluctuating Idle since I got car earlier this year , the car was purchased with around 50K miles on in March this year; the car is 2003 Fusion 2 model . It had got progressively earlier last month, the Idle suddenly started hitting 2000 RPMS on the colder days , recently it has got worse with the needle now resting quite consistently at 2200 RPM . It seems ok when I put the car in gear and start driving but, it has become very irritating when in traffic . Strangely I can counteract the High revs by using the AC and heaters which drops the idle to around 15000 RPM . Strangley there has been no engine light or codes to give me a better clue This is the first Ford Car I have had and is otherwise a good car . I have been researching causes of this and just wondered if anyone could chime in here or share your experiences : Air intake/Vacum Leak - THought to be most common cause of high idle but, not sure where excatly this could occur or on on which pipes ,there are pipes everywhere, so would like to narrow it down if possible T-MAP Dirty- I am getting some flexidrive tools tomorrow and will remove and clean to see if makes difference , though this is usually thought to make the car revs die down . I had managed to clean the throttle body , it was slightly dirty but ,this did not make any change . If anyone could share their knowlege here it would be much appreciated . IT is getting cold here and might have to start using my Pocket rocket instead
  19. Hey guys, I've been running a K&N 57i since around May 2016. It's currently in the configuration that K&N recommended on this model But I'm wanting to move it into the space on the right. Anyone had experience doing this? I'm wanting something like this: What parts, lengths etc do I need? Thanks, Jackk
  20. Hi all, When doing a service on my 2007 MK6.5 Fiesta, I noticed some air bubbles in one of the fuel lines. I think they're in the fuel line going towards the high pressure pump. Please see the first attached picture where I've highlighted the bubbles. Obviously the bubbles move through the line when I press the priming bulb, but new bubbles seem to be coming in again. Does anyone know if it is normal for these bubbles to be there? Cheers! Pietr
  21. I bought KA off a housemate. Its done just over 140k. He said it had over heating problems I let the engine run for 20 mins and noticed that the fan did not kick in I replaced the temperature/coolant sensor and now the fan works Then, I drove the car for a 13 miles on local, A roads and motorway. The temperature warning light came on I borrowed an ODBII diagnositics module (ELM 327) which plugs into the inside of the car on the passenger side Then installed a free OBDII compatible app (Torque Lite) on my android phone to monitor the temperature I made the following observations: 1. Fan kicks in at 100 c 2. Temperature warning light comes on at 120 c Once the temperature reached 120 c, I switched on blower/fan heater inside the car on maximum 3. The fan stopped at around 96 c At this point, I switched the engine off to see how quick it would cool down 4. After 30 mins, the temperature went down to 81 c I noticed that the blower blows out hot air even on cold setting. I have not noticed any leaks The coolant level has remained the same Possible fixes ? Flushing the coolant ? Replacing the heater control valve ? Replacing the thermostat / housing ? Any advice on what else I could check before spending any more money or in what order I should do things. Thanking you in advance, Kam
  22. So here is the situation with my car - I am not sure if it is normal or not, so wondering what other people experience. On a cold day (< 10C outside temperature), if I am driving in my car with the recirculation ON, and the temperature dial set to the coldest, and the fan ON (but A/C switched OFF), it begins blow warm/hot air within 10 minutes or less (although it initially starts blowing cold air). If I then turn the temperature dial to the middle, it makes no difference to the temperature of the air being blown out of the vents. Anyone know why this is the case??
  23. So I'm currently torn between getting a simple K&N drop in panel filter, or a Auto Specialists Induction kit. I kno when I come to remap my car I would most likely get more gains with the induction kit. The K&N is around £40, and the induction kit is around £150. Apart from the nice little sound you get when you let off, is it worth spending all that money on an induction kit? Thanks
  24. Right so I want to change my Air Box to an Air filter on my Mk7.5 Fiesta Black Edition 140 - But I have noticed there is a air sensor attached to the unit if i fit an air filter will this cause me any issues if the sensor isn't plugged in? Cheers Ben_140
  25.
