    I'm sure it was only a year or so ago. Additional info I notice that the radiator fan does not come on at all. Should this be kicking in with the aircon the fan does not even come on after along drive

  4. Turbo Problems Advice Please

    Is it a ramp job do you think. Do you think it could have anything to do with the egr that was changed.

  6. Turbo Problems Advice Please

    Well 3 weeks ago no i had the EGR valve replaced on my focus 2006 1.8 TDCI. Last week i got an error P2099 Turbo underboost. Now i literally have no turbo at all. Very sluggish between 2k and 3k Revs. Could it be related to anything regarding the EGR that was replaced failing or fitted correctly or am i literally the unluckiest man alive. Funny thing is i am getting no error codes at all now just stuttering and juddering when cold and once warm just slow acceleration. Thoughts most welcome. Iv had a quick check of the visible hoses and can't see any split or popped off. Thanks.
  7. Warning Lights Galore

    Hi guys after some advice. I have a 1.8tdci Ford Focus 06. Now iv had the management light on for a few weeks it reads 141a or something egr valve sensor. Now I no this is all one part and as the valve is fine I'm not in a rush to change it. However last night when going above 2.5 revs I get the red cog of doom. Reading the code relates to the mass airflow sensor. I'm not going into limp mode and the engine is running fine. Will cleaning the maf cure this? Are the problems related. And can I ignore this while I save to fix the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    My alternator died and my batterie does not seem to want to charge off the wall charger. Because it ran flat will I need a new one. There's a setting on the charger to charge sealed gell batteries. Are the silver calcium sealed gell batterie. Do I need to use this or is the battery toast. Thanks guys Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
