|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,
