Hi all and welcome to my problem

I have a ford galaxy 1.9 desiel ANU engine it dropped a valve a while back, since then i have had a recon head fitted, a new injector, new injector leads, new piston ect, had all the engine rebuilt, been on umpteen digo machines all say injector no 1 or mass airflow meter, tried new air flow meter not that, swapped injectors around still says no 1 so not that either,

the engine starts and runs but just will not go over 2,800 rpm, seen one on ebay for sale it had exactly the same fault, but a ford tec had sent him a question on how much would he take for it as he knew what the fault was apparently it is a common fault but he would not say what it was to sort it out,

ps a common fault on ford transit fused earth lead goes from battery to body link blows kills all power supply 20 for a new one in for - i bought a standard earth lead from local shop 1.50 put it on 3 years ago and no probs what so ever,

can anyone help me with the galaxy karl

Have a similar problem with my Galaxy 1.9 TD (115) 55 Reg - albeit it's not permanent. Only happens in the very cold. From starting it would top out at 2800 revs (usually got to this by third gear) and as you say, not go above and vehicle seemed to lack power. If I turned off the ignition, it reset and didn't seem to happen once the engine was warm. The engine fault code was 17965 which was "turbo pressure control unit limit exceeded" P1557. I was told the likely cause was a faulty pressure control unit but as this was attached to the turbo unit, it meant a new turbo unit (Quoted 1295 + Labour!!!). Interestingly, after the service and a new air intake filter, the problem went away till almost a year later and the next really cold spell (we're talking < -5 degrees C) and coincidently the service is now due again. I doubt the air intake filter had anything to do with the problem, but it certainly moved the point where this error occurred. In any case, when the engine is limited to 2800 revs, it's running in fail safe mode. I'm still living with my problem as for 99% of the year it's not a problem....
