|2005 1.6 What is the TDCI chain and belt engine? - mands|
I am hoping someone can help me, I'm looking at buying a 2005 Focus 1.6 TDCi Ghia and I see that Honest John states these engines have chains and belt - can someone explain what the pulley part does?
I previously had a 2000 1.8TDDi Focus and this had a pulley and cam belt I think, the belt I had to keep having changed every 30k as it squealled - I believe this belt drove the power steering and water pump etc.
I see that Mondeo's have chain's only - so how are there power steering and water pump etc powered?
Finally has anyone any feedback on the reliability of Focus 1.6TDCi engines - I'm looking at a 3 yr old one with 40k on the clock?
Thanks in advance,
We have a 2-litre Alfa 147 Twin-Spark Lusso, bought new in March 2004. It's the most reliable car we've ever owned (we had 13 BMWs before). The mileage...
I have driven Volvos with tremendous satisfaction since 1970, currently a V70 diesel estate, but now at 82 I am finding it difficult to get in and out...
I have the choice of buying either a new Mercedes E220 CDI or a Jaguar XF 2.2D. Which do you recommend please?
