  1. Hi, Im have a nightmare of a time with my 1.6 16v x plate escort. when I start the car it revs and then cuts out , it has had new cam & crank sensors & new idle control valve fitted but its still the same, if you hold the throttle open at 1/4 throttle it runs but the idle is up & down I was thinking it may be the TPS I'm pulling my hair out Thanks in advance Keith
  2. Hi, can someone tell me if any one has had any problems with the parking brake on the new shape Ka, my niece has one & today the parking brake handle will not stay in the on position any ideas or will it be a new parking brake handle
  3. Hi, Does the key just turn & nothing happen if it does try this, Push the grill in about 10mm & put key in & try to open it This works every time on mine
  4. Hi I take it when you turn the key in the lock nothing happens, Try this put key in the lock, push grill in about 5-10mm then push key in a bit further & turn the key, This works on my Mondeo every time,
  5. I would say yes to Ground & live as interior light works with out ignition on ACC power ?
  6. Well the new pump arrived & fitted it only took around half hour, just took the car for a quick drive for around 7 miles & all seems ok at last, Thanks to every one for your help in getting the problem fixed,
  7. Try not to use Eicher pads they normally tend to squeal go with the Pagid, Also have you tried it is part of Eurocarparts & normally a lot cheaper I use them all the time,
  8. Not sure but I think you will find it is auto adjust
  9. looks like I will be going with the lift pump
  10. Hi got all the codes they are P0149 - fuel timing error. P1564 - injection pump control module requesting reduced fueling. P0252 - injection pump fuel metering control a range of performance. P1631 - main relay malfunction
  11. well just had a guy come round & read the codes he is going to email them all over to me 2 of the codes were P0148 & P0149 if I remember correctly there was 1 for fuel pump relay?? will post all the codes up when he emails them to me,
  12. the F-super scanner arrived today but cant get my lap top to install the USB drivers for the scanner, installed the software on the cd plugged the scanner into the laptop it then comes up driver software unable to install I am running windows 7 64bit any ideas
  13. Well I ordered a F-Super code reader last night should be here on Thursday so will hopefully get to the source of the problem will keep you posted,
  14. Hi Foca The car only plays up when warm, if you floor it when cold it runs ok & goes like stink, tried reading codes with 2 different code readers comes up link error ??
  15. Foca Well I have rechecked every thing again & again, took it for a test drive & it drives great up until the temp gauge reaches half way then when you put your foot down it starts to judder & miss if you continue to drive it will then start to smoke & judder even worse it will eventually stop & not restart for at least half hour until it has cooled down, Also when you fit the blanking plate do you leave the EGR plugged in it is doing my head in now
