Look up the WWW. According to the experts this happens during hot weather and you'll need to drill the pinion hole larger. They even show you how. Don't panic and Good Luck from your fellow Zetec 2009-2010 owner.

I have a 2009 WS Fiesta Zetec with the 1.4l/auto gearbox combination. Purchased second-hand from interstate and the car was well past needing a service. I put it in to the local mechanic to have the timing belt changed, plus new plugs, water pump, oil and filter and I fitted a new air cleaner myself. I drove the car some distance before the service, now after the service the car feels down on power (there's not a lot anyway, I know) and the fuel economy has plummeted, from 6-7 to 8-9. The day after I got it back the car went into limp-home mode (error code P061C) but a long drive yesterday didn't see that happen again. The car struggles at 100km/hr and hunts between 3rd and top gears. A curious and annoying aspect of the timing belt change was the cam seals, which come with the belt kit. The main cam sprocket (or sprockets, since it's DOHC) has to be removed to change the seals- but they are held on by bolts which have to be replaced, as they are "single use only" or torque to yield. They don't come in the kit and this caused a delay of 4-5 days (with a weekend in the middle), so the car was at the workshop for 8 days. I'm concerned that something else happened at the workshop, or the camshaft timing is out. Any ideas?

It was the cam timing. The belt kit came with three different bolts to "lock" the crankshaft and they used the wrong one.

I specified 5W-20 when the workshop did my service. They sell and use Penrite brand. The manual recommends Castrol, and next time around I may use Edge 0W-30. I wouldn't use 5W-40 if I had other choices.

It might be worthwhile to disconnect the battery which resets the stereo. I've had issues with the reading of USB sticks and the battery thing has been the only fix.

Have 2009 manual Fiesta with about 115,000 kms and gear box is leaking oil. Anyone else have experience with this?

Is it the gearbox, or the driveshaft seal? I have had a car leak from the main rear engine seal, which in a rear wheel drive car appears to come from between the engine and gearbox.

I would say no. I don't have kids but have looked after friends kids and I would say you would get two in but would struggle to get a third in.

Check if it's easy to engage into reverse, whether the rev was stable at neutral and sign of water leak. Good car for city.

I drove it today and it was fantastic, sturdy on the road, easy to change gears, no shuttering, clutch didnt slip and fun to dip around in. My dad is a mechanic found no problems and gave it the thumbs up to buy

Hi,

I haven't had any problems with the indicators (yet) the speakers on the right hand side, however, have started to crackle and sound terrible.
The manual won't shudder as it has a different gear box to the auto

Never had a prob with ours, could be a simple issue, take it to an auto sparky :)
