      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    I had thought that too (Or maybe a failing fuel pump) but isn't the throttle of a diesel control by fuel flow (As opposed to a petrol car that is controlled by airflow), and therefore if the flow was restricted (Due to a dirty fuel filter or failing fuel pump) then wouldn't that just prevent the car from accelerating any further, rather than actually cutting out? I guess its not that simple with a turbo car as the fuel flow and airflow need to be in balance, so maybe with the fuel restricted the ECU detects that the mixture is way too lean and therefore cuts the power.... but if this were the case then I'd expect to see a fault code.
  11. It all started with what felt like a slight flat spot a few weeks ago. Today, car started fine, all going well for about 3 miles then suddenly at about 3000 revs a puff of black smoke and complete power loss ( all electrics stayed on ) had to re start engine while rolling down dual carriage way lol. Started first time, all was fine till between 3/4000 revs and same again. No engine fault lights. This car has had a new Egr valve less than 9 months ago, but when that happened, there was engine fault light, and it was in limp mode, this is not the same. Please help, any ideas appreciated. Thanks, Tom.
