  1. My understanding is tat the injectors will work but may not run very well if they fall outside of the pressure range of those calibrated to the ecu. So I guess you have another problem that is causing it not to start.
  2. Thanks for that I will check it out.
  3. Thanks for the reply. My problem is that my daughter uses the car daily for work and doesn't live at home so I am trying to check what I need so I am prepared when she comes around to do the job. There must be a filler to check the level but not sure if it has a drain plug or needs to be sucked out?
  4. Thanks for the welcome guys
  5. Sorry I don't know! Maybe some one on the forum can point you in the right direction if you post a thread.
  6. Hi, Welcome! :D
  7. Welcome, I had a couple of Sierras' nice to hear they are still out there!
  8. Do you have access to a code reader? Your garage is probably right as they should have checked for any codes. You could try a leak back test to see which injector is faulty.
  9. My daughters 57 plate Fiesta has a whine in top gear cruising at 60-70 mph. Just wondering if changing the gearbox oil may be needed as it has done a very competent 141,000 miles! Not had a chance to look underneath yet but hoping it has a drain plug and not a suction job. Any one with some experience on this able to help please?
  10. Hi, Joined the forum a while back but only recently made any posts. I have 3 cars in the household, an X-Type 2.5 petrol, an S - Type 3.0 Petrol and a Mondeo 2.0 TDCI Ghia X. Just bought my daughter a Fiesta 1.6 TDCI 57 plate. All Fords really! I am on the Jag forum but the engine overlap has meant I have been a regular visitor here! With 2 genuine Fords in the family I will be more involved and look forward to sharing useful info. with the members.
  11. Thanks for that, very useful information! I have avoided DPF diesels and run a 2.0 tdci Mondeo on a 54 plate which is prooving to be very reliable (Ooops!)
  12. Thanks for the replies, much appreciated. I thought there was no DPF but was reading the thread on the forum about Ford/Volvo diesel contamination in the sump and some of the post's were from guys with 1.6 tdci Focus's on 06 plates suggesting they had DPF's! This confused me but I guess they are mixing DPF with DMF? Thanks again.
  13. Hi, Just bought a Mk6 1.6 TDCI Fiesta Ghia for my daughter and not sure if fitted with a DPF? Does a daily 35 mile motorway commute but a lot of short journeys during the day. Appreciate any info. from some one in the know.
  14. Hi Flashblade, been following this thread with interest and pleased you've found a solution. Just wondered what effect removing the dpf will have on emissions at the MOT?
