  1. 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.

    Autofold Mirror Issue

    Hi all , I'm hoping someone can help me out. I have just purchased a used 2013 1.0 Zetec S Ecoboost. I'm just feeling my way around the car at the moment but one of the first things I have come across is the driver's wing mirror will not autofold either on locking or when the button is manually pressed. The passenger mirror autofolds but only manually not on locking. All other mirror functions work, tilting etc. but not the autofold. Is this likely to be a fuse issue? I can't find the appropriate fuse in the manual for the mirrors and aside from going through each and every fuse to check I was hoping someone might have a clue. Thanks in advance.

    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.

    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.
  5. 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" 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...

    What is this unused stud?

    Just doing an underbonnet check and spotted something I'd not noticed before. It's a threaded brass? stud in the left (when standing in front of the car) side of the airbox, which hopefully you can see in the pics. No sign of anything missing or having been attached and I assume the airbox is common to this engine in other applications where the stud may have a purpose. There are loads of ecoboost pics on here but couldn't find one showing this - they mostly show coolant pipes for obvious reasons😀. l
  7. Hello all, after recently upgrading to a Fiesta ST I am left with my old Milltek Cat back exhaust system that I had on my Red Edition ecoboost ( couldn't part ex with it on ). The exhaust itself is in great condition, only fitted in January 2018 at AET Motorsport, is a non-resonated system and is perfect for anyone looking to make their Ecoboost sound 10 times better, I'm willing to listen to any offers anyone has. Thanks
  8. 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.

  10. Probably the wrong place to ask this question but hey ho. I am part exchanging my 1.0 L ecoboost red edition as I'm upgrading to an ST, the car is only 2 years old and in perfect condition. However the car has been modified, had an R sport cone filter with all the induction hoses, Revo stage 1 map and a milltek cat back exhaust. I'm part exchanging it with the car people who will give me enough to pay the finance off and put a deposit on the new car however they will only accept the car as standard with 0 modifications on it. The map was taken off by an authorised Revo dealer and I put the old airbox and hoses back in myself however my old exhaust was sawn up into 3 pieces when they out the current one on. My question is ive taken it to the garage ( a trusted garage ) and they said they will weld it and put it back on, but will I need to tell the car people the exhaust is welded? I don't want for them to take that car and I get the st for them to ring me up and say we can't accept it you didn't tell you the exhaust was welded back together... Any advice appreciated
  11. Need to replace engine in 2013 ecoboost 125bhp fiesta. Engine code m1je. Are there any other engine codes that will be a straight swap? Any help is a god send!! thanks

    Mountune MP140 for Mk 8

    For any purchasers of 125ps Mk8's who wish they'd gone for the 140, I see Mountune are now offering their MP 140 upgrade for £365.83 fitted at their Essex HQ.
  13. Hi guys Welcome to my progress thread! Well, my old mk6.5 was written off unfortunately and my friend who works for Ford recommended the new Zetec S to me, and after a few weeks of looking around I decided it was the sensible choice for me. I picked up my Panther Black Zetec S from a Ford garage on the 31st of October, it's the 1.0 Ecoboost 125ps, 1 Owner from new, 6,471 miles, one service on it and there extras consist of; Privacy glass, Upgraded 17" alloys, City Pack and Start/Stop pack. It was one of the ford guy's girlfriends car, only sold it back to them because they got an upgrade because of his job, so something nice and legit, and no dodgy reasons! I don't have a proper list of what I want to do just yet, but a Stage 1 Revo remap and new exhaust system is on the cards. But for now I'll just be adding bits on here and there but will be sure to post about it! Ordered a pack of LED's last night so hopefully they're going to turn up some point this week. Here are some of the photos the day I officially bought her! And the day after, picking her up! Couldn't quite believe how clean it was... Thanks for reading :)

    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
  16. Dear all, I would really appreciate your input on the best 2018 Ford Fiesta model to choose from, having limited budget.... In terms of engine quality, I was planning on getting the regular Fiesta with the 1.0 ecoboost 100 hp. However, for the same price I could get the Active model (which I much prefer in terms of looks) but in order to stay within budget, I would be forced to downgrade to the 1.0 ecoboost 85 hp. The question is if the performance of the engine with the 85 horse power is going to be significantly lower than the 100 version? We are a family of 4. Usually car will be used in the city, but not only. Thank you so much in advance! Adi
  17. 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.

    Ecoboost Issues

    Hi haven't used any form of forum before but desparate to know how others finding ecoboost feature on Focus. I bought 2012 Focus Zetec last April (2013), and the Eco Stop/Start feature has worked say half a dozen times since purchase. Brought it back to dealer after about 6 weeks to have this looked into but told it was working OK in garage and must be way i drive (sadly, as a woman you have to expect that kind of fob-off when dealing with garages!!!). Still never worked for me and I raised it again when I had car serviced in Dec- and with same response. I drive 4-500 miles per week (so think I know how to drive!), mostly long work commute but have short journeys at weekends. Obviously we've had full range of temperaures and road conditions since April'13 but still eco-stop/Start feature has barely operated. What are others experiences?. Surely this feature should kick in regularly?. Annoyed at this stage both with the car, and dealer treatment
  19. Hey all, Is the 1.0L ecoboost an interference engine? 2014 Fiesta, 60k miles - I had a coolant leak a few months ago, local garage thought it was the waterpump so replaced it. It still leaked so I took it back and they replaced it again. It still leaked so I took it back and they finally confirmed that it was a gasket behind the water pump on the timing belt cover. They replaced the whole cover and while they had the car in bits I got them to do the auxiliary drive belt and the timing belt too. Car has since been driven 700 miles and been fine. Last night, the cambelt went on a drive up North. Had just done 100 miles so stopped for a coffee, went back to the car and it would turn over but not start. I thought it was the timing belt as the lobes weren't moving (when looking through the oil fill cap) and RAC confirmed. Took me 10 mins to realise this so I turned the engine over a few times, didn't hear any nasty noises but is it likely that some of the valves will now be bent? And finally, since the engine timing will now be all off, should I be worried about a local garage replacing the belt and setting up the timing again? Cheers, Alan
  20. I'm hoping to get some advice on this £4,354.05 problem but first I need to tell the story ! I bought this 2013 Focus titanium 1L Ecoboost 2 years ago and had been very happy with it up until April when it suddenly lost power on the motorway with no instrument warning lights. Nothing much to see except a bit of steam and plenty of coolant splashed around the engine compartment. I was far away from home, visiting a relative in hospital in the West Midlands and I had to stay to make arrangements for them. Unfortunately I had limited internet access (just a small phone) so had no idea about these ecoboost engines being equipped with defective degas coolant hoses. I booked the car into a small independent garage near Cradley Heath railway station, returned home (North Yorkshire) and then went on holiday abroad a few days later. When I finally found out about the degas hose problem I contacted Ford who at first dismissed any notion of responsibility since I'd taken the car to a non-Ford dealer to get it repaired. But they gave me a reference number to pursue the case further once the repairs were complete, which they now are having paid £4,354.05 (reconditioned engine and turbocharger from Ford, other bits, labour & VAT). So any advice on the following would be a real help: How do I deal with the issue of not having used a Ford dealer? I found an independent garage, SMB Autocentre, that sounded competent, was well reviewed (on Motor Ombudsman site) and was near a railway station for ease of travel. They repaired the car with Ford parts and a reconditioned engine from Ford. An important point here is that I'd chosen this garage weeks before I discovered this was a preexisting problem with many ecoboost engines Frankly I don't see how my choice of repair garage detracts from Ford's responsibility for installing defective coolant hoses in the first place. Does anyone know of any car owners taking legal action against Ford for this same problem? Any useful tips in getting some cooperation from Ford? As yet I haven't got back to Ford with list of final repair costs. For all I know they might be quite helpful, I just want to be prepared really. Thanks in advance for any help, Nick
  21. Hi all, I have just had my front discs and pads replaced and was wondering if they need to be broken in? Car is a 2013 manual Ford Fiesta 1.0 ecoboost Titanium X and OE parts were used. If they do need to be broken in what is the procedure? Best regards, TheScoobyCollector.

    Ecoboost cooling system.

    Hi all, I have the 1.6 ecoboost and had been looking coolent, found it had been slowly leaking from the join in the heater matrix pipes is the footwell(seems pretty common). Anyway I replaced the O rings in the pipes and when I was refilling and bleeding the system I noticed the top radiator hose was cool and the lower was very hot, is this normal? I have heat in the car, the pipes entering and leaving the heater matrix are both hot? The coolent in the tank was warming up. Am I right in just running the engine with the expansion tank cap of or is there another way to bleed the system out? Cheers
  23. Hi guys. - apologies if this has been already asked, I have searched the forum and spent the best part of an hour flicking through topics on this section.... I've recently picked up a 1.0 125 ecoboost zetec and I'm starting to look into the mods that I can get for it. So far im looking into the bluefin remap, airtek intercooler, turbosmart dual port valve and a replacement air filter (either itg or pipercross) im reluctant to look at induction kits as they sound horiffic and im looking for more of an understated build..... With that said, Im looking around for a replacement exhaust, now i know Milltek sell sports exhausts for the Fiesta, but I cant seem to find anyone who makes them for the Focus... Are there any about (looking for cat back ideally)? or is it a case of popping to my local Longlife centre for a custom s/s exhaust (luckily theres one about 15 miles from my house and have used them before for my old focus) Many thanks in advance.
  24. Running a mk7.5 ecoboost, is a catch can a good thing to have? The new mk8 ST has dual injection to clean off the engine of oil gunk so I'm thinking having something to remove the oil vapours would be a decent thing to have. If they are good, any recommendations?

    EcoBoost 140ps performace

    Hi All New to here , I have just purchase a Fiesta Zetec S Red which has the EcoBoost 1.0 140ps tune in it It drives nice and I love the sound of it , One thing I have noticed though it seems to perform well in 1st gear 2nd Gear it drive good not a ferocious at 1st Gear but good. But if you drive it hard to the limiter in 2nd gear and then throw it into third there is like a delay in the pickup . For instance you change rapid into 3rd , it revs ok and then all of a sudden it gets to 5000 rpm and then you get a rush and it pulls again to the redline ?? Now is this a possible Boost Problem or is it the variable cam timing that may be an issue ? Also I know that it was so called serviced before I bought it and I very much doubt if the recommended 5-20w oil was used more like standard 5-30w instead I wonder if this makes a difference also being a highly strung engine. Would like to get this sorted as soon as because I want to put a Bluefin Map on it soon. Lots of Questions I know Thanks for any comments or advise Steve
