  1. Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help me with an issue i am currently having with my Ford Focus 2010 1.6TDCi. The issue i have is that back in August the engine management light came on but no issues appeared to be present with the car, everything seemed normal when driving no loss of power or the car going into Limp Mode. I took the car to a local garage and they reset the codes and all was fine for a week. After about a week the same engine management light came back on and still no driving issues with the car. I took it back to the same place and the error was boost pressure, they reset the error and i got the car booked in with them to clean the turbo as that is what they advised to do first as they had seen the issue on different cars and cleaning the turbo solved those issues. The work was done on the car and when they were taking the turbo out they noticed that there was a lot of black hard gunk in and around the four injectors and they discovered the injectors are leaking and the hard gunk is the diesel from the exhaust leaking into the engine bay but they didn't want to clean them because of how much of a mammoth task it is and didn't want to do it as it could take a while and could cost a lot even though i was willing to pay to get this done. Once the turbo was clean everything was reset again. I needed the car to drive to York so hence why i got the turbo cleaned so the car has had a good blasting after the turbo was cleaned. The trip to York i had no problems with the car and the engine management light didn't come back on so all was good for a month and then last month the light came back on. I spoke to the garage who cleaned the turbo and the next cheapest option they suggested was to replace the boost pressure sensor. It took them a while to think what to do so this has only been done on Tuesday 16/10/18. When they replaced the pressure sensor they looked at the errors and there was a new error about the DPF having a problem but they reset everything and i picked the car up. Wednesday as i was driving home from work i looked down at the dash and the light had come back on again. They did say that if the engine management light does come back on then the next thing would be to replace the turbo which to me seems a bit extreme but maybe it is the turbo. At this moment in time i'm very reluctant to spend too much for it to not be fixed so i was wondering if anyone had experienced the same problem with this model of Ford. I am however going to get a reader to try and see what error codes are coming up and will be going to clean the injectors and replace the injector rods and reseal so that will be one problem solved. Regards Phill
  2. Hi everyone, I just bought myself a '08 focus 1.6 tdci 66kw, and I'm very pleased with the car so far. It has 110 000 miles but the engine seems fine except a little blowby from the top, but none from the dipstick, which my local garage says its acceptable for this mileage. Only one thing bothers me, the car seems to hesitate a bit on hard acceleration and seems to be a little low on power in high gear. I recorded a test drive with Forscan and here is what came out: Looks to me that the Waste Gate actuator is moving erratically when the accelerator pedal is pressed and I get a 2sec delay until boost kicks in. Since I don't have a clue how this is supposed to look like could someone please help me and explain whether this is ok or there might be a problem here?? BTW Other than this, car runs fine, very good mileage, no check engine lights and very little smoke from exhaust even on hard acceleration.
  3. So I believe I have a turbo problem. I have a 06 TDCI 2.0. All the pictures I have seen have a waste gate visible I have an electronic actuator but cannot find any pipes that link to my turbo, Haynes manual pictures do not tally up to my car either. Read some articles about a waste gate solenoid and again the pictures I have seen I have nothing like that in my engine bay? Reason for searching is I have a newish turbo to fit and while I am going to do this big job I want to refit new pipes etc and refurbish bits that attach to my turbo but nothing tallies up from YouTube or even what is in the Haynes manual.... any help with photos and arrows to my waste gate or solenoid would be great thanks my dirty engine bay
  4. Does anyone have experience in rebuilding these turbos? can i whack in a new cartridge? My Nut appears to of come off and has caused a bit of a mess
  5. 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 :)
  6. Hello, I'm not much of a car expert but a friend of mine has noticed that a part holding a hose from my turbo is missing, They've said that it was keeping the heat of the turbo away from the hose and that it's crucial to have, I've visited Ford parts to which the employee has said to get the part that I want I'd need to buy a new turbo, I'm looking for a simple clip that is attached to the turbo and holding the hose, is it true that it's a crucial part and where can I find one? picture below. (Sorry for the bad quality in advance!)
  7. Hello! Currently in the process of ordering parts to turbo my Focus MK 2! Does anyone recommend any prebuilt Turbo manifolds or is it going to be a case of custom make?
  8. Hi all, I have had a few issues with my focus recently from the dpf I have had it cleaned and refitted. The error and eml have gone so I believe it to be successful. However whilst driving today it was a fairly long drive of 160 miles round trip, my car has again been playing up. It feels like the torque is non existent and in 4th and 5th there is no power at all, it won't go over 3k revs in those gears but it does in the others. I have checked all hoses to and from the turbo within sight and tightened them all up. There is quite a lot of oil around the turbo but I also checked the propeler for movement and it seemed fine to me. In neutral if your gentle the rev counter will bounce between 3k and the first dial after the 3k and you do get some whitesh smoke come out the back. I really don't know what could be causing this if anyone has had anything similar or any ideas I can try?
  9. hello, i currently have a 1.6 tdci, its remapped and has a k&n airfilter on and a straight pipe exhaust (still has decat) i believe its on the round about 136+ mark but dont have a solid number as never dyno'ed it, i want to upgrade my turbo to a hybrid turbo but i want to know if anyone else has advice etc on it and can point me to right parts to upgrade and prices etc please ?
  10. Hello. First time here. I had ford mondeo mk4 2.5 turbo for few years. It always had one vacuum line blocked off with a screw that drove me mad not knowing why someone did that 😁 so finally managed to trace it and it goes to the turbo recirculation valve. So question is, is it supposed to be blocked off, where should it go.
  11. Hey folks I own an ford focus 2010 tdci 110BHP, which about 2 weeks ago started to go into "limp home mode" i tried to diagnose the problem and found out that the turbo was leaking oil and the bearings where loose. Therefore i changed the turbo core yesterday. But it havn't fixed the problem. The car jerks like the fuel is cut sometimes while driving. i've tried and make some graphs in forscan trying to diagnose the problem, but i can't see the problem so i hope some of you can see what i can't.
  12. Hi, I've has ongoing problems with my 2007 Diesel Fiesta since I bought it 2 years ago. Firstly I know diesels can't misfire in the normal sense of the word because of the lack of spark plugs, but it's the best way to describe the problem. Basically (usually under load), every now and then (once every 500 miles), the car will lose power for a split second then regain it. Once it starts doing this it will do it a few times then stop, usually. Sometimes it lasts longer than others, and it can do it several times in a row. The more I'm accelerating when it happens, the more violent the kangaroo effect is. Of course, when I get a mechanic to sit in the car with me while I drive it, the car doesn't do it... The full timeline of events: I buy the car used, ~50k miles on the clock, average mpg of 47mpg suggests it's been used for driving around town. I start driving it 70 miles a day, mpg increases. first big journey, it starts misfiring. Check engine light comes on at end of journey. EGR valve replaced by person I bought the car from. Every other fix this guy did was a bodge, so I didn't expect much. some time later, car goes into limp mode. Power train failure, dashboard becomes a christmas tree. When car is turned off and on, it often stops going into this mode. Took it to Ford garage for diagnosis. Fault determined to be with injector no. 1, Ford garage wanted £1000 to fix it. Took it to independent tester with full machine for injector testing. He found no faults with any of the injectors, so he switched injector no.1 and injector no.3 around so if the fault re-occurred, we would be able to find the faulty one. "Misfiring" persisted. A few months ago, the check engine light came on again, then disappeared. Eventually it was on more than off, and as I'd determined it was an EGR problem, I wasn't concerned. During thsi time, average mpg steadily dropped from ~60mpg to ~56mpg (maybe because of increased heater use as winter started properly though). Eventually got it booked in a few weeks ago. EGR valve replaced, check engine light cleared. Since the most recent EGR valve replacement, not only is the problem still present, but the car seems to have less power. Most worryingly, pushing the throttle a certain amount (just above cruise speed) causes the engine to act as though one cylinder is not firing, then firing, then not firing, then firing etc. it doesn't do it when flooring it, however the car now tops out completely at 95mph, whereas before it could go faster, so it's definitely less powerful. Car is now at 83k miles, and gets driven around 80 miles a day. I've seen lots of other threads about this issue. They point all over the place. The throttle linkage, splits in air hoses or boost hoses, ECU software updates(?), and injector seals. No smoke is present and the car isn't giving me any engine fault codes either (at least, the check engine light hasn't come on). What I'd like to know, is if the fault is something potentially causing damage to the car e.g. timing chain misalignment or something? And no I don't really think replacing the EGR valve ~3 weeks ago made it worse, it just didn't fix the main "misfiring" problem as I hoped it would. TL;DR: Car has always had intermittent "misfire" problem, once it got bad but problem couldn't be traced, now it seems less powerful too with certain throttle setting causing more power/less power/more power etc. problem, with noise to go with it. no other problems with car, no warning light currently on, car was at 50k miles, now at 83k miles. Help? Edit: I should add, the air con was bodge-fixed by the previous owner so is now broken again (he just topped it up rather than fixing the leak, so gas has since evaporated off). The AC is always off. Could this lead to problems at all?
  13. After scrolling through countless threads from 2013-2014 - is anyone still using Bluefin? I just used Bluefin on my ST2 and it feels like it absolutely flys, but I’ve read a lot of people saying it causes big issues in the future on STs, and that the turbo charger can’t handle it.. but this was all years ago. is anyone using superchips on their ST and finding any issues? Should I take it off and take it to another company like Revo?
  14. Hey guys i have seen some videos and these cars (182) sound great with the focus rs airbox would the equivalent not be cutting a hole in the top of the stock airbox? excuse my ignorance lol :)
  15. Just picked up a set of mint condition genuine 2016 focus RS 19 inch wheels wrapped in 235/35 Michelin pilot super sport tires. Got them at a steal of a price from a lad I know who works in ford. Fitting them to my 2011 MK2 zetec s tdci tomorrow. Would yous be interested in a picture to see what they’re like?? No suspension mods.....yet
  16. Hi guys, anyone know how to make the 1.6tdci make the turbo flutter noise? Posted a link below to give an example. Thanks.
  17. Hi So my first car was a mk4 escort and after 4 years of searching i have finally found a car just like mine was. Lets be clear, it´s a hobby car and i don´t want to keep it as original. Now my question is has anyone done an engine swap? What is the easiest fit? What ecu do you use? Can you turbocharge it? I have a serious problem. I am addicted to turbos. I´ve turbocharged almost all my cars so far. Now i don´t want to cut the body in any so it can´t be converted to original. maybe you can point out a doch engine that would easily fit the car and some links to find new forged internals. At the end i am hoping to get 180-220 bhp from the wheels. So i´m not gonna overdo this project. Do i even need forged internals or is there a ford engine that can be turbocharged and handle this small power? English is not my first language so i´m sorry if i´ve made some grammar mistakes. Thank you Raido
  18. Hi everyone! im a little confused with the sound of my 1.0 ecoboost fiesta. Its mounted with an ITG air intake, and turbosmart dual port valve. The sound at full gas its a nice phhsss, but free revving it or at low-medium gas it makes this weird sound that im not sure if its compression surge. Little worried actually. Ive been adjusting the valve too but not much difference, it seems to be the same, maybe now it phhsss more easily lol. Can anyone help me out ? thanks!
  19. Hi guys First off let me introduce myself, you won't have met me yet....I'm the new boy 😊 I have a background as a semi skilled mechanic, semi, as I don' yet know it all!! So, I'm about to start retrofitting the GTC1244VZ VNT turbo from a 2015 1.6tdci Focus 115bhp, Ford could have saved me a job and just released the Fiesta with the correct power output but they didn't!! 😏 (that should give you some idea as to what comes next!) I'm lead to believe the current turbo is a wastegated TD025 however I've inspected the plate on the compressor housing, it wasn't all that revealing 😒 The current turbo appears to be ECU controlled by vacuum via a N75 type 'pressure converter valve' fed by the brake pump. My first consideration is the action of a wastegate being either open or closed, generally speaking at least; VNT has many increments between rest and full travel. Secondly, the wastegate is normally closed at rest, providing max boost; provided it has spooled up. Whereas the VNT setup (usually) the vanes are fully open at rest which obviously results in no boost at low rpm. This effectively means, although both engines are identical. The boost control is controlled in an opposite fashion. So, flash the ECU with the correct software to operate a VNT Turbo?? The map from the Focus 115 should do? Actually no, the 115 and the 105 use the Siemens ECU so the only option would be the old 110 hdi/tdci maps, they operated on an older Bosch ECU so it's not guaranteed to work either. My ECU is a EDC17C10 with the latest tricore and password protection, I'm sure it could be done, but it could go horribly wrong and cost thousands for a new ecu set plus it's keyless 😣 moving on then!! My next consideration is using an electronic controller, it is supplied as a full kit taking some sensor readings from it's own included sensors. T into the vac pump use it's own N75 valve and hey presto we should have VNT on the fizzie. I have ordered the kit 160 all in if it won' work the seller will allow a return for refund so it's a fairly safe gamble. I have a mechanical boost gauge installed anyway so I can shut it down if it goes a little Pete. Any suggestions out there? I know there will be some out there who will start by saying 'buy a bigger car' 'bigger turbo' ECT....if I wanted to drive something bigger I'd jump in the 13l R450 Scania, unit only turn the traction control off and have some real fun. Please, those types of comments are not required or wanted please troll elsewhere. Pics will start as it develops....first, the donor turbo
  20. Hi. I have an 08 reg Ford Focus TDCi. Recently when driving on mortorway and aceleeating (roughly about 2500 rpm) the car shudders then cuts out. It’s as if the fuel cuts out or the mixture is wrong. Could it be an issue with turbo? It’s a little unnerving. Luckily I have been able to drift to the hats shoulder. Any ideas?
  21. Hi, I bough a used Fiesta with 125bhp Ecoboost couple of months ago. Since I'm aware that the engine can get destroyed in a case of coolant loss I decided to have a closer look at it today. I noticed that the coolant hose that is going from turbo to the radiator has been worn out a bit by the heat shield that is protecting it. The head shield has bitten 1-2 mm into the hose and I see that it might potentially cause a slow coolant leak. For now I haven't lost any coolant but since these engines seem to need a proper cooling all the time I'm a bit worried of these kind of small imperfections in the cooling system. Im going to get my hose changed asap. Below is a picture of the hose and the heat shield.
  22. Hey, I am having a "problem" with my Mk 2.5, EURO 5, Focus 1.6 TDCi 110HP (72k miles). After driving for long time (like an hour or more) at motorway speeds, the check engine light comes on and i get the P0234 Turbo Overboost error. The strange thing is that the car drives absolutely fine when the error occurs. No limp mode, no loss of power. There is no way to know the car is having the error without looking at the dashboard to see the check engine light. I tried to reset the error code, but it keeps reappearing in the above scenario. Tried going full throttle from 1st gear to 3rd changing gears at ~4000rpm and the problem did not occur. It seems to me like it only happens at higher gears/higher speeds. I have to mention I got the EGR mapped out at a local tunner, but I am thinking that the EGR was closed anyway at those speeds, so I doubt this could be the cause. I also have to mention that my DPF Differential Pressure is about 13 kPa ~80mph at full throttle and 0.6-0.9 kPa at idle, which seems a little bit high to me, but no errors logged yet about DPF. I was considering the clogged DPF causing too much pressure hence, the overboosting. Are those values indeed high or am I wrong? Is there any risk driving the car with the overboost code as long as limp mode doesn't occur? Any ideea that can help me diagnose my problem? Thank you!
  23. So I got fiesta 1.4 tdci 2003 130k miles real animal when it comes to work, I got blue ish smoke on acceleration, but nothing when at idle and in neutral, oil seals changed, no ticking noise nothing but got hissing noise from engine bay when accelerating, and oil after turbo in air intake don't know what to do, checked for leaks and found nothing, turbo seems fine any suggestions please. Thanks
  24. Hi guys looking to get twin pipes and an st diffuser for my focus mk2 pre face lift 1.6TDCI. I'm going more for looks than anything else but I'm just wondering what I would do to make the car sound Nice, not looking for a huge BOOO or to be seriously loud just want it to be Nice, any recommendations? High flow air filters or what? Have no clue about exhaust modification or would an air filter even make it sound decent

    Focus tdci boost problem

    Hi, having a bit of an issue, my car is grand when it's cold it has power but just as the engine starts to get warm theres absolitely no power in all gears, there's no engine light on, its not throwing a code and it's not in limp mode. From reading other forums I've been lead to believe that it might be the boost control solenoid. Does anyone know anything about this problem and could someone help me locate the solenoid, thanks a lot!
