  1. Damian this is a 1.8 Kdda engine out of a 2012 model still having the problem ofit not firing correctly thinking now the injectors will need coding to ecu as that's the only thing that's different on the two engines apart from engine loom and turbo actuator that I've already changed anyone in Cheshire got ids or elm that could help would pay of course .
  2. When I get it started Pete will post up fuel pressure kpa it ticks over but will not Rev at all just billows white smoke now mine is a 2008 build engine is out of a 2012 model new shape changed the engine wiring loom over from mine and also the turbo actuator as plug was different on that pumps have same part number just wondering now if injectors will need coding or change for my original ones
  3. Hi would anyone on here know if a 1.8 tdci diesel pump on a 2009 would need coding to the ecu .just put a replacement engine in with all ancillarys attached it will start but won't Rev and is billowing white smoke engine has only done 45k no fault codes appear.all help appreciated
  4. The cars an 09 registered but 08 production I'm using Delphi on a lap top pretty good does almost everything on most cars but seems a bit limited on this one .
  5. Peter not got round to checking your suggestion out yet but on the way home from work tonight it was stuttering again one thing I have noticed is that my glow plug dash light and esp light will stay on for around 15 secs after car is started also dash lights are slow to respond could this have anything to do with the relay you suggest or just coincidence car show no other codes than them 3 though .
  6. If the leak is from the union it's quite likely the nylon washer has gone instead of paying frauds 14+ pounds for one go to b an q and buy some nylon tap washers slightly thicker and you will have to file out the middle a tad to get it to go over the union but work a treat did my mates this way over 2 years ago and still no leaks cost £1.14
  7. Thanks Pete I'll have a look at that
  8. Hi can someone advise out in car this morning and had a few stutters then engine malfunction light comes on so pulled over and restarted and drove on the whole ok just the odd stutter every now and again .got home this afternoon and read codes p0380'was perm now gone to intermittent p1203 cleared p0490 cleared only one I can't clear is p0380 I've had a look at loom seems ok only thing I could see it seemed to be loose on the end usually where they burn out can't tighten it any but it seems to swivel is this normal or is there something in there that's loose .picture is not of mine but where the 8mm nut is on the end is where it is swivelling .anyone shed any light .
  9. Hi wondering if anyone can help just done some work on my mates cmax 1.8 duratec and after all that it's still got low compression on number 1 cal so looking at replacing engine now this is the question his is a qqda and I see that many variants wondering what wil and won't go say I got hold of a short engine off a qqdb I'm assuming I could use his cyl head .looking at a mondeo engine at the moment would this go presumably I would have to change all the auxiliary parts basically is the head and block all the same across the duratec range thanks in advance .
  10. That's how mine went at first couldn't determine if it was the alternator or turbo on and off for months then like you battery died would not start (cold day) so plumped for a new battery put it on and within a minute the alternator was almost on fire smoke bellowing everywhere turned out it was that all along luckily enough got away with any further damage been ok since change even the little electrical gremlins have disappeared my radio/ satnav was doing weirded things again ok now hope this helps
  11. Just got a 1.8 mondeo going that had run out of fuel easiest way I find is to top up filter then prime the line to the pump with a small syringe might take a few attempts but you won't be there hours
  12. Hi got a mate whose having probs with his 2.0 tdci not starting/cranking after exhausting all avenues he's decided Togo for a second hand ecu clock lock set question is the four figure code on it I think it's called the catch code is this relevant if buying a full kit I've told him to watch for dpf and non dpf as I think they would differ is there any guide to as what's what help appreciated
  13. Ian am I correct if you look on page 61 of schematic as it comes out of the pcm then to C90 it will be pins 1 and 15
  14. Thanks Ian if you can find the pins much appreciated delved myself last night till my eyes where sore lol .
  15. Hi wondering if anyone knows the pin outs on C90 in the engine bay fuse box on a 2.0 tdci 2005 my mate has got a coms problem on his resulting in no crank we have pinned the problem down to the fuse box under the bonnet really need to know which are the pcm can us wires that run through C90 with colour code I've had a look on the schematics but can only get so far we know they run through C113 and C112 up to the cluster can get the car started if we move the fuse box but need to secure or clean the connectin in there any help appreciated .
