Hello to all users. I own a BMAX Eco boost 1.0 model December 2012.
No problems so far at all until recently I noticed a small engine coolant leak about the size of a 2-euro coin.
After visit to local authorized Ford service they found no leak. Next day leak again on the floor. Being fed up, I went to local repair shop and yes the leak was there.
After some hours of removing parts and searching, the leak is originating from the “mirror” of the engine which is the worst scenario! We were sure it was the pump but…….
Anyway, this vehicle has 48000km and sleeps every night in its closed garage, it is in perfect condition and annual maintenance is done only in authorized shop.
Anyone had similar problem? I was told by the authorized service in Athens this is common “issue” on these engines. It requires about 5-6 hours of work just to replace an O-ring which costs less than 5 euros!
Hey guys, check out below Youtube link. This is exactly the repair I am getting done. Unbelievable amount of work!!
This car was my third Ford (Escort and Focus previously) I owned and the last one! Why do you have to tear down the engine just to replace the water pump and the O-ring??? My car is still in the shop, hopefully tomorrow will be ready (cross fingers)! And I hope the engine will start and run normally??
I am completely disappointed from Ford's craftmanship, quality and of course customer service (lack of) from local authorized service. All this has already been communicated to Ford’s HQ in Greece.
How much?? This is the million-dollar question! When I find out I will let you know!
