1.25 zetec engine.
does it give a plume of smoke when first starting up?
How many miles has the car done?
What sort of mpg are you expecting?
Is this a car that has previously given you better mpg and performance?
If so, get it scanned and check the live data, you might need new coolant sensor or air mass sensor which will correct the fueling.

My fiesta 1.6 zetec 16v is blowing blue smoke with strong odour of petrol ,what is wrong with it ?


Hi

it sounds like it is burning oil not petrol but you will smell petrol as the oil is leaking in through the head, the valve stem oil seals will most likely have gone, very common on fords. they are very cheap bt unfortunately you have to remove the cylinder head to replace them so that means a head gasket and a new cambelt and head bolts thats where it gets expensive. in the UK you are looking at about £300 to £500 in a general garage.

there is another solution that will last for months if not years, get some STP the type that you need to heat up to get it to come out of the can, this will seal up the leaking stems and shuld stop the smoke, most people do this before they sell that car.

Valve stem oil seals often go because the car has been driven hard, but you should still expect them to go at around 80-100k miles anyway.

Hope this helps
Regards

There is a ticking/knocking noise coming from engine and the interior of car you can smell the diesel on ford fiesta 1.4dtci on 56 plate.


Have your valve clearance checked for that noise. As well as the diesel smell, fuel lines must be checked for
leaks. If your car is emitting heavy smoke, and it seems to loose power going uphill, your engine must
be due for overhauling. However, if your problem is just
knocking and diesel smell, valve clearance adjustment
and fuel line check up will correct the problem.

Trouble starting


you may have an air leak in the petrol line, probably where the fuel pump was changed.
the car won't srpay out petrol some time's but overnight the vacum in the fuel line ****'s air in & the system is not primed.
The only way you can check this is by priming the rail first thing in the morning by turning the ignition key to the point just before starting & you should hear the fuel pump run for about 4 second's then turn off the ignotion, wait for a few sec's & turn the key to same position, it will prime again.
Do that a few times & check for petrol leak's as the fuel will run back to the tank via a pressure valve, If you see a leak then you've found where the air is getting back in if there is no leaking but the engine start's then you will have to go over all the hose clip's in the petrol system.
If not that then get back to me !

try adding half a litre of tranny fluid to your engine oil sometimes that will help clean them out and free them up
