Ford Transit: turbo failure, fuel pump problems, and other malfunctions

As well as having a striking design, the Ford Transit is packed with clever and practical features: intelligent and connected technologies, a powerful and efficient engine, and remarkable load capacity all of which can help you work more efficiently. But like all vehicles, it can have its problems. Here's a look at some of the most common ones.

Intermittent starting malfunctions

Contrary to what most car owners think, a dead car battery is not always to blame when the engine has trouble starting. Especially in the winter months and on colder days, an insufficiently charged car battery can mean that your Ford Transit will not start or will start only sporadically. Once you have identified the car battery as the cause, the only thing that will usually help is a jumper cable if you want to continue driving immediately. When your Ford is finally running, drive around for a while if possible, allowing your battery to fully regenerate via the alternator. If the starting issue continues to cause problems, you will have to buy a new Ford Transit battery.

Intermittent starting malfunctions

Fuel pump

The Ford Transit is known to have issues with its fuel pump, which can result in various problems. One symptom is the engine failing to start or stalling while driving, which can be the result of a malfunctioning fuel pump. Another typical problem is reduced engine power or acceleration, due to a clogged fuel filter or a faulty fuel pump. In some cases, the fuel pump may also produce unusual noises, such as whining or humming. This can indicate a problem with the pump's internal components which may involve having to replace the Ford Transit fuel pump or fuel filter, repairing any damaged wiring or connections, or cleaning the fuel system to remove any debris or contaminants. In some cases, the entire fuel system may need replacing if the damage is severe or if the vehicle has a lot of mileage.

 

Turbo failure

A common symptom of a failing turbocharger is a significant power loss or acceleration. This can be due to a reduction in boost pressure, caused by a damaged turbocharger. A damaged or worn-out turbocharger can produce unusual noises, such as a whining or grinding sound, particularly at high speeds. Make sure that the lubrication is correct so that the turbocharger can function smoothly because too little oil will damage the components, but too much oil is just as bad. If you are having turbo actuator problems you may notice that your engine is consuming more fuel than is necessary.

Starter motor issues

Common problems include a clicking sound from the starter motor when you turn the key in the ignition, indicating that the engine isn't engaging. Another symptom is a grinding noise due to worn or damaged gears. Odd sounds can also be caused due to a lack of power steering fluid for Ford Transit, so make sure to check that the level is correct and top it up, if necessary. In the worst case, the engine may not start at all, making it impossible to start your vehicle.

Other commonly reported problems

Issues with the Bluetooth or radio not working, crankshaft pulley failure, powertrain malfunction, central locking faults, and engine mount problems have also been reported. If you notice any of these, you may have to replace components with Ford Transit parts and accessories or have your vehicle inspected by a qualified mechanic who can diagnose the underlying causes of these problems.
