Do check the Bangalore directory for details on the best possible list of FNG's to get the work done.

No point in spending so much and going to Calicut and risking the cars health. If you would have been living in remote page then I can understand but Bangalore will definitely have someone out to help you.

All the best and do keep us posted on the developments and repairs.

Doesn't Ford provide half engine (i.e the upper half)?Maruti does so . They provide you with a new/reconditioned (at their factory) upper half at a reasonable price and top of that you get OE stuff with engine warranty.
Diesels normally are long life engines because of the nature of their working principle which commands usage of strong working components. The Duratorq should easily do 6 digit on the odo if maintained religiously.

Not sure! I will enquire a little more closely with Elite Ford - Mahdevapura.

I had the same engine issue with my Ford Fusion too. When I contacted the Ford A.S.S, they informed me that I need to shell out 1.3 to 1.8 lakhs to replace the engine. Eventually, I sold my car for a paltry sum of 60,000 Rs., and bought a Baleno for 70,000 Rs. My suggestion is to sell it off and have peace of mind.

Looks like a timing/oil pump issue, which eventually lead to coolant getting burnt (could be a blown head gasket or a crack on the head).
Forget all those FORD ASCs here in Bangalore. They are pathetic and out there only to rip you off.
Look up the directories thread on Naveen (Automechs). He is an independent mechanic worth his salt.

Please don't go to Elite Ford. My experience with them have been only bad. I would rate Lathangi over them any day.
Near maratahalli, try Sejal Motors (Automotive Workshop : Sejal Motors (Bangalore))Me and many others have had good experience with Sejal motors on our Ikons. So I assume they will be good with other fords too.

Johny, I see that Jaguar has already recommended Sejal Motors. For me its literally a FNG since I live a minutes walk from it. If you are interested in getting the proprietor's (Suresh) contact, just send me a PM. I will give you contact and location details. I have been going to Sejal for last 5 yrs and been a good experience. I used to take my Ikon Flair to him.

I have a fiesta classic 1.4 which has crossed 85k kms now and I'm noticing that the engine oil consumption has increased. When I checked the level, it has gone down by half for around 5k km and I'm also noticing a drop in mileage of 2-3 kms.
Anything to check or any precautions to take so that no major damages are done? I informed the service guys couple of times about the drop in mileage but they just checked for error codes and just said everything is fine and nothing they can do!!

I failed to convince my friend to carry out the work here in FNGs (within Bangalore). We have managed to transfer the car from Bangalore to Muthoot Ford , Calicut. I will post the work details and cost estimation in next couple of days.

Finally the work got completed in a FNG @ Calicut. Total cost is 82000. So far the car covered 1100 kms and its smooth. Mechanic asked us to visit the workshop for a general checkup and service at 1500 Km.
