  1. hi all, just fitted another fuel sensor on the second hand pump but still same ,but ive noticed if i let the car go into limp mode (by putting foot down over 70) if i stop immediatly and look at the injectors the middle 2 are swimming in deisel, they are dry as a bone normally if i dont go over 70,any ideas?
  2. hi guys ,been real busy and had no time to repair car, had fuel pump fitted and still the same cutting out at about 70 ish,could be the second hand pump is faulty too
  3. i would go outside when its nice and dark ,remove engine cover and take a look at ht leads as engine is running ,you might see the ht leads breaking down and sparking on the engine,thats what my old escort did, i put new leads on and it ran great
  4. thanks turbine ,will let you guys know how it goes
  5. i need a new deisel fuel pump ,i can get my hands on a second hand 1, the guy selling it says it wont need programming ive read diffrent opinions on this, if it does require programing can it be done by anyone are is it ford only? thanks scott
  6. haynes manual says 1.3 mm but ford say 1mm
  7. hi mintalkin ,plumbob, ive fitted the grey cam sensor it did have the black one before but still same, the deisel specialist is going to have a drive in it at speed then hopefully tell me that it will only cost me pennys to sort it =) (says hopefully).ill let you guys know what he says,thanks for the replies ,scott ps ,plumbob do you know how much they charge to recondition the arm?
  8. just had mine down to deisel specialist says its the turbo over boosting ,but fault on diagnostics says fuel pump ,i think im going to be spending lots =(
  9. hi ,if its not fallen off and is just loose try http://www.screwfix.com/p/no-nonsense-fire-retardant-silicone-310ml/77289 this will stick it back in place noprobs just clean any dirt from the surfaces 1st scott
  10. hi, mine is the same as yours steve but i dont have the temperature problem just the limp mode when engine is warm at high speed ,i just didnt want to spend 500+ on a new pump to find out the problem is still there
  11. hi maximus ,if its the trim that attaches to the rear bumper? i replaced my broken undertrim yesterday, when i removed the old 1 the rear bumper was very flimsey ,id say drill the rusted fastners out and replace with a wingnut type,are if you can buy the original fastners then do that ,i dont think the rear bumper would stay stable very long without the undertrim ,just my opinion scott
  12. hi all,great site, been reading up on the glow plug problems many of you have had, heres mine . i bought a 2ltr 2002 tdci the car runs great starts 1st time ticks over perfect no smoke ,untill i go on the motorway ,soon as i get to 70 miles an hour the glow plug light flashes and the turbo stops working and car goes in limp mode, i turn the ignition off and back on and car is perfect till i get back to 70ish again and the same thing happens again, i changed oil and filter, put a new cam sensor on and still had the same problem ,since then ive had the diagnostic check and it came back with only 1 fault ,which was fuel pump . i cant understand how the pump can be at fault if i can floor the car inlower gears without a single missfire but soon as its warm and high speed it goes into limp mode, i should also say when the car is cold i can get through all the gears foot to floor with no problems,its just when the engine as been running for 10 mins are so,and high speed that the problem occurs, any ideas ? thanks scott
