Power fail­ure

- Ford Motor Company · Iceland · Ford Focus 2

► The owner of this 2002 Ford Fo­cus 1.8 TDCI had no­ticed a lack of power and was con­cerned that trou­ble was loom­ing, even though all was well at his MOT four months ear­lier. What we found was some­thing that is quite common on the tur­bocharged Fo­cus and is eas­ily reme­died: one of the in­ter­cooler hoses had per­ished and the turbo was los­ing boost pres­sure. As a pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sure, we de­cided to re­place both of the in­ter­cooler pipes, which should keep the oil burner run­ning nicely till the next sched­uled ser­vice.

 ??  ?? The in­ter­cooler pipe had split and was al­low­ing loss of boost pres­sure.
