Question

You must be bored with this question but does the 2006 Fusion 1.6TDCi Zetec Diesel have a belt or timing chain and when does it need changing?


Answer

No its ok as there are many different combinations. Your vehicle has a cam belt, but the mileage the belt is changed, changed in 2006, so I would need your vehicle reg to confirm which change is correct. up to 2006 the change is 150,000 miles or every 10 years, from 2006 the change is 125,000 miles or every 10 years, so if your mileage is low it is every 10 years

Question

Hi, I have a Fiesta 1.3. My engine overheating light has started to light up after I drive for about 10 minutes or more. I want to change/top up the engine cooler to see if that will fix it but dont know what coolant I should buy and where from. Cab you please advise? Do I think just need to poor the coolant into the chamber or do I need to mix it with water first? Do I first need to drain the chamber or can I just top it up? If I need to drain the chamber, how do I do that? Please advise with instructions. Many thanks.


Answer

If you change the coolant you can add any type of anti freeze, if it is to be topped up you must use the same type, any Ford dealer supplies both. To drain the coolant, the easiest way is to remove the lower hose off the radiator (be carefull if the coolant is hot) Refit the hose and replenish the anti freeze. When you top up coolant mix it with water 50/50 No need to when replenishing
