  1. 60,plate Smax Engine Problems

    Hi,I am quite new to this but,I have a 60 plate 2.0ltr diesel s,max,I have had it nearly 2 years now,I have had the car back to fords 3 times now,what happens is intermittent,one day the car would be fine then the next,I would start the car and it would run fine for about 10 minutes then I would notice that the main engine fan was on,there was a different exhaust note,and the engine was revving weird,it also has a loss of power,and a flat spot,I have had enough cars to no it's not right,I have like I said taken the car back to fords on 3 occasions,they run a diagnostic,and some other tests,but say there's nothing wrong,each time I go to collect the car they say they have updated the software,on the ecu,but as for the engine they don't know,I have to take it into them when it happens,that's helpful,has anyone got any advice,please,
