I'm hoping someone will be able to help. Basically I have a 2006 Focus GHIA TDCI diesel and bought it preowned. Its done a fairly high mileage 140,000 miles. Anyway it seems to be having a few problems, basically the engine feels underpowered it isn't as torquey as a diesel should feel and I'm often finding having to run it in a lower gear than normal, the engine sounds rough and it stalls quite easily if u don't rev it hard enough. One other main issue is that there is a burning oil smell which I get whilst driving, I have to press the circulate internal air button on the dash as a workround.
I've taken the cover off the engine and basically theres are certain parts covered in oil. If you see in this image I have circled areas covered in oil.
In this second image it is there I think the oil is coming out.
In this third image I can see theres what seems to be some kind of plastic, possibly a bodge job done by a mechanic, but I have no idea what it is covering or fixing?
Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated, unfortunately the warranty on the car ran out shortly after having the problems. I don't think theres anything legally I can do is there, I should have checked the engine properly before buying.
Many thanks in advance
