Hi everyone. The 2007 Ford Fiesta 1.4TDCi I bought from a garage on September 16, 2016 has presented a whole lot of problems, the most prominent ones being that it has a major diesel leak and it also leaks oil. Before going back to the garage owner who sold it to me to report that the car has been faulty, I decided to take it to Arnold Clark Ford on Scotswood Road, Newcastle, for a diagnostic round, I wanted to have a report about what is wrong with the car. They have said that possibly the injector seals have failed and this is the source of the diesel leak. They have also found that I need to replace the CV boot clips to the driver side outer joint. I had also asked them to check about an air-sucking like noise or a sound similar to the whirlpool noise when a water basin sink is emptying from water, which I had noticed whenever the car was driving at speeds higher than 50mph or so. They have also pointed out that there is a part of the engine that is missing -there is no air intake pipe, or air intake snorkel, as they call it. Is that an important part of the engine? I have read some horror stories online about the possibility of the engine being destroyed if that part is missing and the car drives through the rain. Since September, when I bought the car, I have been driving in rainy conditions for many hours -being in Newcastle upon Tyne suggests that this is quite standard anyway.... Is there any case I have caused any major damage to my car? Thanks everyone in advance for your input, help and advice, Kind Regards, George
Hi all, My beloved S1600 is coming to the end of its 3 year warranty period and has only had 1 service since it was registered. It's now due a second service at 19,200 miles. What i'm asking is, do i have the service done at ford or could i go elsewhere?
