I used to read this group and there was a tremendous amount of information and assistance available but I would recommend the Ford Focus Owners Club forums which are free to use and are excellent and more detailed than this group - it is also UK based and you don't have to sift out all the colonial stuff which appears on this group which doesn't apply to European build cars.
and then look for the CMax section.
There is a lot of info about the CMax 1.6 TDCi and a section purely for CMax plus a separate section for diesel engines.
Give it a go and hope you get as much enjoyment from your CMax 1.6 TDCi as I have done over the past 7 months or so. I couldn't believe how improved the ride and handling and performance and versatility was over my "old" focus which I loved and was very pleased with (my daughter is still very pleased with the focus)
I was very unimpressed with the CMax - until I had a test drive - Wow - what a great car.........
Best of luck,
