Ford 1.0L 3-cylinder reliability

This is a direct injection engine so it is susceptible to carbon buildup on the intake valves since gas is not injected onto the back of the valves. So an upper intake valve cleaning is recommended since carbon buildup can cause a lack of power and misfires.

Engines produced before 2014 experienced issues with the lower coolant hose rupturing and dumping all the engine coolant even though the temperature sensor showed normal temps. The hose was redesigned in 2014.

Older engines may experience issues with low fuel pressure. The high-pressure fuel pump is driven off the camshaft. Cam bucket wear can cause low fuel pressure. Replacing the worn cam bucket is the fix.
