  1. can it be the standard she diesel
  2. Ok so im going to try and get a garage or mobile mechanic to check the engine noise and see what they think, can anyone recommend me anyone near rosyth,fife.
  3. its never run dry, i just bought it last year and its just had another service. just seems noisy compared to when i got the car feels like an old taxi cab lol i think im going to sell since im unhappy driving it now, need to get it valued.
  4. IMG_0786.MOVAdded this attachment , the cars sounding noisy top end not sure if its all related IMG_0786.MOV
  5. Gave it a good boot up the !Removed!, needs a good boot to get it to go ur its not running good , almost like a rasping sensation when accelerating its hard to explain it just feels like it doesn't accelerat smooth like somethings blocked. I feel like when we got the car it was quiet and smooth but now its noisy and stutter feeling . Gave it a good booting a few times but no luck . I used a can of wynns egr cleaner , plenty black smoke but still no luck with performance .
  6. How much of a thrashing do I give it ? I don't want to do more damage than good :-/ Is it worth changing glow plugs and maybe cleaning throttle sensor wherever that is lol ?
  7. OK so ford done diagnostic and nothing showed up they seem to think my car is fine , and then they suggested it could be supermarket fuel. Anyway I'm going to change glow plugs on sat and see what happens, I can't keep driving the car like this its running like a pile of rusty nails
  8. If nothing shows up at ford I'll change plugs I'd I can I will try myself
  9. No warning lights but car feels rubbish to drive I don't understand why it would feel so good for one day after the service . I'm starting to doubt myself. Never noticed any warnings on dash I done the dash test thing an there's no dtc showing, so I can't see fords tester picking up anything , the longer the drive the worse the car feels if that narrows anything down . Is there an android app for this forum to make replying easier.
  10. Thanks if nothing shows at ford when they plug it in tomorrow I'll change them. I just noticed when I'm driving , driving the car if I listenrellt closely there's a bell/chime like sound ? Any ideas its reallllly faint though hope its not the engine ?
  11. The fuel,air,pollen,oil filter got change the plugs weren't done. I thought the glow plugs only effected the starting of the car ? That's what I got told anyway .
  12. Hi, This is my 1st post so i hope im in the correct topic section. My car was running rather sluggish and just not feeling the same as when i bought it a year ago, It doesnt feel as smooth pulling away and the engine sounds louder posiibly because i'm having to rev harder. Anyway i got a full service yesterday oil filter , fuel filter, pollen filter and air filter and when i drove away from the ford garage i was amazed at the difference it felt like a new car but after a day of running its back to feeling sluggish again, its just not the same so ive booked it into ford tomorrow for a diagnostic check. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas what could be causing it? im not sure if the diagnostic check will even pick anything up its so frustrating. I just done the self diagnostic code check on the dash board but there was no DTS fault codes.
