  1. thanks for replying. Forgot to say its a 2007 transit 2.4 140bhp. So dearer engine. I wanted to skim head and new gasket but if it's the block when they change it, it will cost more in the long run. But as I said it didn't loose no power and for some reason didn't overheat. But lots of pressure in water system
  2. took my transit to transit centre and was told I need a new engine. It was blowing white smoke and loads of pressure in water system. They said water was in the pistons and in the oil. Ok. But it didn't overheat and didn't loose power. The is no oil in the water system that I can see.. Any chance it could just be cylinder head and gasket or do I need a new engine. Any ideas. Thanks
  3. hi, me again. took my transit up transit centre because of loads of white smoke. water in the oil, but they drove it back to me and told me I need a new engine. before they drove it back they had to unlock or unblock it cus pistons were full of water. I asked it if could just be cylinder head, he said no, need another engine. anyone know why he said another engine and not cylinder head or gasket. it still drove good, no power loss . transit 2007, 2.4, 40bhp. any ideas
  4. engine knackered
  5. thanks for replying again. I have got it booked in tomorrow and was told the same as you say about the fuel rail or a injector. I just hope its not cylinder head. but its smoking just like last time when turbo had gone, but this time with hard starting. I will let you know what they say but it will probably be a week for them to look at it. thanks again pete
  6. it was a cheap speed sensor I bought off ebay. thought the first may have been faulty so ordered a 2nd. no luck. so ordered one from ford and took the abs light off straight away. luckily I sent the 2 back and had a refund
  7. hi all. I have a 2007 transit van, 2.4 140bhp. lately it has become hard to start. it is blowing white smoke out the exhaust. temperature is normal, heater blows hot air and doesn't loose any power. I have tested water for contamination and oil is normal, no creamy sludge or anything. I was told it could be something to do with diesel not getting through to start, but why the smoky exhaust. I have recently had a new turbo fitted and all was good til now. any ideas anyone, thanks
  8. thank you both for replying. Tdci-peter, I did go to site, it may have helped a bit. Thanks
  9. just bought a second hand abs pump and module as had it tested at ford and said I needed a module. Do I have to have it re set or what do I do when I put it on. Thinking of just changing the module . Its on a 2007 transit
  10. just bought a second hand abs pump and module. How do I re code it or what do I do when I put it on. Thanks
  11. first I took it to the transit centre and they couldn't get nothing up at all. They sent us to another garage that said it was left hand rear censor and diesel filter. Put new diesel filter on and had already put new censors on the rear. The garage checked everything from back axle to the front. Got to take it again next week. It cost £120 just for looking
  12. thanks. Will try checking them again. Garage had it all day yesterday so should have checked them as they say they checked from axle to front
  13. no cant go wrong. Different connectors..changed them as thought they might help get first light off. The brake pad wear light
  14. hi everyone, need your ideas. we have a 2007 transit. the brake pad warning light came on so we put new rear brake pads in, at the same time we put new sensors on the rear brakes (the wire) and both rear abs sensors. started the van up and we had the brake pad warning light still on but also the abs and esp warning lights too. took it to garage to be checked with machine and after a bit the brake pad warning light has gone off. the garage had it in all day and checked from back up to the engine with no luck. got it booked in next week for another go finding fault. any ideas as its costing a fortune in labour charges. checked all the fuses. what seems odd is the lights coming on when they didn't before we changed all the wires. we did try putting old wires back on but no difference. hope it something simple. any suggestions please
  15. sorry. its a ford transit 2007 2.4. 140bhp. its got 2 batteries
