  1. 1.6Tdci C-Max Knock/hesitation

    ive uploaded the video into the gallery as I cant seem to link it on here.
  2. issue after egr valve

    From the album c max 1.6tdci

    c max 1.6tdci after egr valve blanked
  3. 1.6Tdci C-Max Knock/hesitation

    well this morning I took the egr off and cleaned it again refitted the egr with the blank and I had boost back but still rough running and at around 1500rpm sometimes would lose power also the pipe on the left was sucking in every 30 secs or so, I removed the plate and it stopped the sucking noise ran smoothly but no boost. I have a video off what its doing I will try and upload it.
  4. 1.6Tdci C-Max Knock/hesitation

    no there is no whistles or smoke that I can here or see, I did notice after driving with no boost that the hesitation had gone. I will have a look tomorrow just incase I knocked something without realising but I'm sure I didn't. I've read on a few other forums that the map sensor is a known fault
  5. 1.6Tdci C-Max Knock/hesitation

    hi yes I believe it was fitted correctly, i fitted it again over the weekend and had no power sounded very rough , removed blanking plate now I have no boost would egr cause no boost?
  6. 1.6Tdci C-Max Knock/hesitation

    update blanked the egr off today and that seemed to make things worse car wouldn't rev properly and sounded like it was hunting on idle. any other suggestions where to look or is it a trip to frauds.
  7. 1.6Tdci C-Max Knock/hesitation

    thank for the reply I will give it a go tomorrow :)
  8. 1.6Tdci C-Max Knock/hesitation

    hi all I have a 2006 1.6tdci c max everything seems fine with it other than when I accelerate there seems to be a knock/hesitation cant quite describe it at around 1500rpm upwards but I don't think its there in 1st or 2nd. I have since had it put on a diagnostic and it came up with P0487, P0488 and P2141 all relating to egr I believe, I suppose my question is would the egr cause this kind of problem. Thanks in advance for any help

    Thanks for your reply. yeah they are common on the mondeo's £300 doesnt seem to bad is he going to put a new panel on or just fill and repair? i'm seriously considering doing it myself as i dont think it has rotted all the way through but it goes to the skirt and the bumper thats the bit the body shop said would be hard to do. only 1 way i will find out i suppose.
