Risk
Investigations carried out have shown that in the batch of ‘1.6L Duratorq TDCi 110 PS’ engines built into the Ford ‘Focus C-MAX’ vehicles in question, the oil feed holes between the cylinder head and the camshaft bearings may be misaligned, reducing the flow of oil to the camshaft bearings. Over time, this reduced oil flow could cause premature wear of the camshaft bearings and may also result in seizure of the engine without prior warning.
