EN: Add me as another failed 1.5 ecoboost engine, at the moment I did not open the engine, I ordered a new one, probably of the design of the block
Focus 3 2015 1.5 150ps 147k km, high pressure in coolant tank, then loose of coolant, then rough idle, then white smoke and at the end coolant in oil.

EN: I saw the engine I want to buy of Kuga has PCM JV4A-12A650-UA and it's emisions E6.2 compared to mine E6, would I need the ECU of the engine or just change the software in the ECU? thanks,

they are seems to be the same. The difference is the firmware of the PCM.

EN: if it's just software it's fine, I can fit the right software of the kuga and can run fine.
But what about mechanical part? Will it fit to the gearbox am clutch? Engine mounts?

EN: Year of production should be 2018 or 2019?
To all my request of the above regarding the pressure in the coolant tank, it's now ending up by replacing the engine.
I would like to ask you guys if a Kuga 2019 engine will fit to a focus 3 2015?. Kuga engine code is M8MD and mine is M8DB
Thanks,

EN: I can blow air easy (engine off) in the hose that comes from turbine and goes to that solenoid valve, actually this solenoid moves the vacuum from the naturally aspirated from air intake to the vacuum from vacuum pump (in the case of boost when there is no vacuum in the intake)? a malfunction of this can cause malfunction of wastegate and create the noise?

Hello, has anyone encountered the turbo wastegate noise? Turbocharger was replaced with a new one (not rebuilt) but the noise is the same, I checked all the things, hoses parameters looks good, if I hold the rod of the wastegate the sound is changing, and if I pull our the vacuum hose of the membrane it stops making this sound...
Software update I heard can be a fix, but I have the latest
F1FA-14C204-ANL, any help is welcome, thanks

I think you need to change pressure cap on coolant tank.

I did change with one of my colleague, but here has 1.5 tdci, code on the cap was the same, behaivor is the same,
I removed the sparks for inspection, they look normal, even quite good
Ps: I use to remove the oil the the intake every revision as I read here due to possible oil aspiration into the cilinders
Thanks

What year was your car made in? Does it have an oil drain pipe from the intake manifold?

Thanks

Hello,

En: I have a little pressure on the coolant tank when I open the cap, more on hot than cold, but on cold I see rise of the coolant of about 1 cm, there are no other issues, like smoke, lost coolant or lost of power, no misfires. It is normal or not? Could be the gasket, or crack in the head? How to test?

En: update for the ones who will be in the same situation
You need to remove the lower fins and cut the middle plastic as there is one of the leg of the bracket, then all is fitting perfect
Upper fins are working normally 🙃

En: no no? Remove fins? Like the oem one? 😁😁 People says this code is for acc 1890335 but this is without lower fins, I just can remove them and create cut out for bracket

Yes I can imagine, but I want to install it then maybe later add the grile I think that grile can be mounted without removing the entire front bumper,
Thanks for the information

Hi famax, do you have a finis number?

I think I found it, it's f1ej-17f017-a1
Will be a problem if I don't put this and the sensor will be exposed?
