i own Ford Figo diesel car..2012 model. it was giving problems of coolant leak, there was some problem in water pump and head gasket which was replaced and fixed.after that it hasn't given any problem. i was mainly driving in city only.

But 2 days back on highway car was running at 100+ speed, after running for 100 kms, it has shown overheating sign in the middle of night.

I called my mechanic and he said keep putting water in your coolant tank.
I put some water,n temp came to normal
After running for few more kms, it again showed overheating sign..this time i stopped the car and tried to start after some time,but the car didn't start.n in the end i have to tow the car.

On inspection mechanic said its engine seized.
Now repairing engine will cost around 1 to 1.5 lakhs and it can keep on giving the problem
Someone suggested me to do engine swap, putting engine of another car.Is the engine from same model from other car can fit in my car.will it be trouble free in the future.That engine 2nd is costing around 50k. what to do?

Can go in for Engine Swap. It shall work.[But it shall be second hand engine]
Even engine repair should work. Costing of 1.5 lakh seems more.Try local workshops.

Best is going for Ford's authorized service centre and getting engine repaired/replaced, if you need 100% reliability.

Reliability shall always be an issue.
But you cannot sell your vehicle with siezed engine.
Already you are having issues with Cooling Circuit.
But if you have to live with this vehicle, get it repaired from Ford's Authorized Workshop.

In ford workshop charge is more than 1 lakh....i find it out from mayapuri 2 nd hand engine is 40-50 k ...2013 above model...meerut i can get in less than30k.if i go for engine swap......after that car will run smoothly.....means any compatibility issues with other parts....engine from other car can produce any problems in the future? engine swap i feel its best option .....i have hired one mechanic to find best used engine ....any other things to be kept in mind to be checked before engine swap

Hello guys,
i do own a ford figo 2011 diesel model, few months back it started giving me problems. whenever i start AC, the car is in massive load and pickup drops. One day i was way to my home, suddenly a whistling noise started coming from the engine. I stopped the car and checked if something got stuck in the belt (the actual reason what not known at that time) but nothing was there, so i started car and move, but after few kms white smoke coming out of the exhuast. I stopped the car and get it checked by the local mechanic and came to know that i blow my turbo:( :( . I then went to the mechanic (he is ford mechanic) and after the proper diagnose it was very shocking that whole engine needs to be repaired as the pistons, turbo, piston cylinder etc are in worst condition. I decided it to get it repaired and it costs me around 70k.
Now the actual stuggle starts from here, the mechanic called me and said the car is repaired and is working fine. I went there and collected the car, as soon as i started driving the car, the pickup of the car is worse, i get back to the mechanic and hand over the car to look at this problem also. After diagnosis it was observed the pickup sensor was not working. I got it replaced. After that car was running fine for around 1-2 weeks than again turbo blows. Mechanic changed that at his cost. Then after few days again turbo blows....this scenario continued for atleast 5 times. The 6th turbo is working fine but the pick is very poor as it was in the starting. I got it scanned from the ford and not a single problem was mentioned. The turbo is working fine everything is good but still i miss those punch as i used to get before.
Now yesterday i was driving back to home, suddenly a blast sound came from the engine and it shuts down. I open up the hood and see that smoke is coming out from all the sides of the engine. I was totally pissed off. I get back to the mechanic and get it checked and the last thing which is remaining is also stopped working . 3 of the 4 injectors stopped working:(
So after putting around 1L i m on the same page as on the day i first blown turbo...and came to conclusion that ford engines are not made to be repaired...either you dump your car or get the engine swiped.
So, now i decided to swipe the engine with another one which is going to cost me around 40K-50K.

In My 20+ experience on car ownership,I would say never go to local mechanics, they can't handle these modern cars. Back in 2010,I handed my 10 year Alto to a local mechanic for engine piston change. After spending more than 50k, there was starting and other issues. The mechanic one after the other told me some problems and changed parts and the total cost went to 60k and still the car was not ok. Finally I took it to maruti service and another 40k only after which the car was fine.

Please don't think the authorised service centers charge more, only they can handle them. I immediately sold and got a Ford Fiesta and till now I'm satisfied. Usually local mechanics handle all brands of cars. If you a take a fiesta to him for repair, the last time he had dealt with a fiesta may be atleast a month ago or more, whereas the mechanics at the company daily deal with your brand cars. So naturally within minutes they'll be able to diagnose the problem and set it right. It's all experience that speaks. Moreover they'll have proper tools to remove or fox the parts. I have seen local mechanic mostly beating with hammers to disassemble. Our Alto mechanic broke a part in the engine head for which spare is also not available.
Again if your car was past 8 years, it's better to sell it off, because it's that time it'll start making problems one after the other.

Hello Guys!

IMO Mr. Anand's advice is accurate on giving cars to authorized service station only. There are very few local mechanics who are expert to deal with these cars as specifically these cars are very less in number so chances of him seeing these issues are very less.

Regarding engine swap I am not convinced that why will anyone give good condition engine for 40-50 k rather he will sell his full vehicle. Chances of getting good engine is next to impossible.
