All new motor put in.

So the car was losing power after long hot trips. Went to 3 mechanics, including an European car specialist, and no one could tell me what it was. The EU "specialist" actually telling me it was because it was out of fuel.

One guy isolated it to the coil, and put a new one in. I drove it home and it felt strange so I told my dad to give it a run. It started making a hideous grinding noise so we crawled it back to the mechanic and he said the timing belt had come off and had probably bent the valves.

Sure enough, my regular mechanic found 2 bent valves, potentially more. It would have cost more to fix it than it did to get the new engine so I went with that. The rest of the car is in great condition, so it'd have been a shame to scrap it.

Among other small faults, like a leaking coolant hose, coolant leaking onto the timing belt from somewhere, and currently a non-functioning blower motor. All of these have been fixed except the BM though, I should note.

I notice people are having problems with their transmission and it having a sort of thud or grinding sound. It turns out you’ll need to get a new control module and have it reprogrammed by a ford dealer.
