Where is the map sensor on a 1600 16v zetec focus


Hi Lynva
Don't know your model... but
Do you mean the GPS Receiving Antenna.

Usually in the Map Device screen or under dash near windscreen where it can pick up a signal through plastic.

Ford Focus - 2007 Zetec 1600 A high pitch whine is coming from the engine. Occurred yesterday after restarting the car started after a 10 mile drive ad being parked up for an hour in a multi storey car...


Check your power steering fluid level. If it is low that is probably what is causing the noise. The pump is running dry. If that is the problem it means you have a leak somewhere. I have had this issue with my Focus for awhile. I just check the fluid often. I don't fix things until I absolutely have to. Check your manual my Focus uses transmission fluid for the power steering system.

Where is the in-line fuel filter on a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe located.


I am not familiar with that model, but it dosen't sound like a fuel filter to me .
If it runs good after you get it started,the filter is probably ok,i don't know where it is located on that model,but it sounds like you have already found the problem (low fuel pressure) check for leaks,make sure the lines are on the right places on tank .Whatever is causing low fuel pressure is probably the solution.
hope this helps!

Ford focus 1.8 peterol zetec shuderring/missfire


Check your fuell filter. You may have low pressure from a clogged filter. Also do a full tune up, plugs, wires and cap and rotor if it has it. Some fuel injector cleaner may help as well. As a precaution have the pressure regulator on the fuel injection rail checked before you do all the other things. They can go bad without warning. Good luck.

Escort 1998 1.8 zetec mis firing


try using a gauge to measure fuel delivery pressure but this tool may only be available to the dealer or a big garage,best advice in a case like this is put car in dealers as you cant read the the ECU readings as the OBD II connector cable doesnt have manufacturers pin connections.Have a funny feeling this problem is a concoction of different faults,but try checking gauze filter on bottom of pump in the fuel tank or for porosity on the flexible connections that connect the plastic fuel lines to the unit on the tank .
