Ford Focus Engine Replacement

JUNE 2017

Recovered into the garage as non-starter by the RAC.

Initial inspection carried out showed poor compression on cylinder 3. Suspected internal fault with engine .

Gained authorisation from the customer to strip vehicle apart to investigate exactly what is going on with the internal engine.

  • Stripping of engine components
  • Cylinder head removed to inspect the cylinder block
  • Head gasket failure
  • We can see water had entered into the cylinder bores and washed the bores out this made the cylinder block unserviceable. Unfortunately this vehicle now required a new engine.
  • New engine orderd from the main dealers Ford and assembled into the vehicle
  • Vehicle all built up test drove with no faults to report
