i know this is the focus section but my transit connect has the same engine and i thought id get more help here. the problem ive got is ive just had the engine taken apart to replace a piston. now the mechanic has put it back together it doesnt run properly. it wont start on the key but it will when its jump started. once its running it will tick over all day but once you drive it a few metres it cuts out and the ignigtion light comes on. ive had it put on a computer and it came up with a fuel pressure regulator so i put a brand new one of those on and still the same. so then i thought it was the pump so i got another one of them put on and its still the same. the mechanic has had the van now for over 2 months and they dont seem bothered bout it. should i have had the van connceted back up to the computer after installing those parts to wipe any errors? or could there be another problem? thanx

As far as I am aware, the oil cooler has a habit of failing on these vans.

would that cause the problem ive got?

If it was the oil cooler, you would probably have oil in the expansion tank and generally all over the place! It might be worth checking if the timing has been set up correctly.

check that the wiring to the cam sensor is good and secure as any damage would cause the van to stall.
