Default Nothing winds me up more then trying too fix a car that doesn' want too be fixed.

Hiya all really could do with suggestions or ideas, getting quite frustrated with this Ford Focus 1.8 TDCI Yeah its the Lynx engine.

Long story short Engine Malfunction came during driving and cut all power too her engine.

Cambelt checked all good.
Doesn't fire on easy start.
No codes detected apart from cam sensor changed and still the same.
Cracked open unions and It is getting fuel no question about that.
Engine cranks but won't fire.
Relays and fuses checked all good none of them of broken.

Checking wiring loom see if there's no split or damages still need too check the rest but so far its okay but will continue digging and see if the rest okay.


Anyone have any experience with these or know someone that does.
At the moment I'm thinking of stripping It and scrapping it, at the same time I don't want too give up just in case its something I've overlooked and can be easily repaired.

If you were me what would you do next?

Honestly Miss the 75/ZT ownership so much, much easier engine too work on.

Even the technical guru's are head scratching at this.

That's a turbo code mate.
If you can get the code again perhaps it will give us more clues.

Is this the one with the cam and drive pulleys only held in place with a torque loading? I fi remember correctly its not even a high figure for the cams, something like 40lbft.

In theory if the crank pulley bolt or one of the cam pulleys were loose the engine would turn over but no valve moments.

I know of a Fiesta that had one cam bolt loosen off and the engine just died luckily with no apparent damage. Pop the cam belt covers off and see if everything is turning.
