Hi everyone , I just bought a 2015 1.5 Tdci, Ford ecosport today
Hi does engine have belt or chain and when does it have to be changed , thanksHi and welcome to the forum Darran
Think you will like this SUV, plenty of room in cabin and boot, you have to get used to keeping space behind you, to side ways open the tailgate, and also the big blindspot on the A pillars up front, ie, next to the small triangle of glass. Your head will bop around the pillar, takes a bit of getting used to.
Thats a EU5 diesel you got there, so is a bit less complicated than the face-lift version mid 2017 onwards which is EU6 emissions.
EU5 has a DPF filter with burn cycles, with automated cycles and you can do a manual burn with some faster driving for a while, say on an 'A' road or motorway at least once a week, to definitely keep the DPF cleared out of soot, which is most important.
EU6 cars has a DPF filter with far more automated burn cycles to meet more stringent emission control, you can still do manual burn once a week. Also EU6 has Adblue liquid to reduce emissions by spraying into the exhaust system, which requires topping up occasionally.
Any questions, throw them up, and someone will answer. I hope
