I have recently bought my second Focus TDCI 1.8 Zetec Climate (115 bhp)
in the UK and it's driving me crazy - I wondered if anyone else had a
When accelerating hard, often in top gear, the engine appears to hold
back and 'miss' a bit - sometimes it's for just a second and sometimes
it happens a lot but it definitely affects the engine's power. I can't
identify any particular trend in terms of when it happens most but it is
maddening. The car has only done 34000 miles and I have just had a full
service done but it's not improved.
A mechanic has suggested that it may be dodgy injectors and I am really
not sure. The car is a late 2003 model and I am not sure if you can
have the injectors re-set/calibrated on the TDCi engine? I am more
inclined to think it's electrical but how do I get a diagnostic check done?
Anyone eperienced a similar problem or any ideas?
