  1. I guess the engine could have dismantled itself? Lol
  2. Burst boost hose I suspect.
  3. It's interval 10 years or 100k miles - whichever comes first so it's overdue if it hasn't been done already.
  4. It's more covering their back end for anything they can't properly inspect.
  5. It's a pretty standard advisory and given that springs snap left right n centre you're being made aware of the fact they are corroded
  6. Of course the oil was only the wrong type on the receipt
  7. What was the code that come up regarding the egr? you car will be a euro 4 so electronic egr not a vacuum operated type.
  8. Yep there are ways of removing wheel nuts very easily, a dynomec kit is probably the favourite. you need to get on the phone to the service manager or get the car back to them and explain. That's out of order damaging a wheel and effectively denying all knowledge.
  9. I don't know about ford pumps but I know with certain VW engines, a new pump has a surcharge so they can get the old one back. Any I've had look like spanking new units though so if they are reconditioned they are done very well.
  10. Similar case with my own Tony, the small bore pipe coming from the leak off pipes back to the filter has been rubbing on the side of the engine at some point and clearly has a flat section to it but its been like that 5 n a half years and hasn't got any worse but I think it may be caused by the filter not sitting in the correct position which in turn upsets where the pipes should sit.
  11. Timing an engine with a floating crank and cams is destined for disaster without the correct locking tools, which on your engine consists of a pin and a bar. Swapping out valves is an easy job. Again though you'll need the right tools - a valve spring compressor and lapping stick/paste.
  12. @Steve @Trevor Can anyone clarify this? cheers
  13. Next time you'll use the proper timing kit too I hope lol
  14. depending on year of car it's either vacuum or electronic, yours sounds like the electronic type. If everythng is back together properly and the connector is plugged in then I can't see why the light is egr related. I have removed mine many times and never had a problem doing so.
  15. Is yours the electronic type egr?
