  1. Interesting that. Mine favours BP over Shell.
  2. Long Term Effects Of Egr Blanking.....

    I have the same engine and my light kept coming on. It stayed on more times than off actually. No harm has come of it. I have changed the fuel I used to BP and/ or Shell and the light spends more time off now. I can't imagine a six mile journey in London is going to help matters much either. I'd be more worried about your Diesel particle filter than the EGR valve.
  3. Wiring Loom Required

    Aha!! You star! Thank you very much! Now to find a way to access the orange female connector. What is it with Ford and their chub on for electrical tape?

    Hello all. Can anyone tell me where I can find on of these? Or what the connectors are called? Mucho thanks
  5. Hey up chaps. Bit of an observation on this topic. I've had mine done for some time and the engine management light was always lit. After reading some other threads on these forums (and other websites) I have changed over to BP and Shell diesel now. I was using Sainsbury's before. The car smoked it's way around and emitted black contrails rather than clouds under power. With cleaner fuel now in the tank, the car smokes less, which means a cleaner exhaust system. It also means that the EML has gone out!! It hasn't been on for a while now. I've not used FORscan on the car yet, but I strongly suspect that cleaner diesel has helped matters. The car is running a charm so it leads me to think that fuel does have an affect. If you find yourself in a similar situation to the one I was in, try changing your fuel and giving it a few weeks and a bit of a kick about when you can. :) I'll do some diagnostic checks and see what I can find

    Hello all. Does anyone have an experience with the side hole jobbies on the 2.0TDCi engine? Rather interested in giving this a go. I miss the induction roar. I had a metal conical mushroom cone thing on my old 1.6 petrol. It made a right !Removed! racket! :D
  7. Help With Headlights Mk2.5

    Ahh someone else who finds the beams poor as well. Mine don't go very far and have no definitive pattern either. I'm going to take it in somewhere to get the alignment checked soon. I'd rather pay for the peace of mind knowing they are been done properly. As for fitting the bulbs, they only fit one way I found. Keep us updated. It will be interested to see what you find out.
  8. Odd Rubbing Through Accelerator

    Any idea where it is on a 2.0 TDCi? I'll have a look later.
  9. Odd Rubbing Through Accelerator

    That doesn't sound like much good can come of it. I've not noticed any ill effects though. I'll not worry about it for the moment. Thank you for the replies, folks. :)
  10. A 2010 2.0 TDCi Focus. Here is an odd one. The issue as resolved it's self, but I'm baffled at what may have caused it. I got the car serviced yesterday. The oil and filter done (done several times already without issues), whatever else and the fuel filter. It was a 10 mile drive back from the garage to home without issue. The car was parked on a pavement with the left side up on the pavement. I drove the car for a short run that evening and that is where the rubbing/ knocking feeling on the accelerator started. The car started and idled as it should do and there was no rubbing on the brake or clutch. Upon pulling away and accelerating, the accelerator had said experience. Which is very odd to me as there is no direct link to the engine apart from the cable (which I'm not sure it has). The car was left alone for 90 minutes at my destination before I came back home. Same thing again on the throttle. I parked the car on the curb in the same manner again. Popped the bonnet, couldn't see nothing, had a poke about and found nothing loose (apart from a rubber pipe along the firewall behind the block (need to look into that)). Started the car again, moved it forwards and backwards a few feet a couple of times, took it around the block. Only to have the issue disappear! Very very odd! I can only thing that there may have been some air caught in the fuel line with the filter change? Anyone got any other ideas??
  11. My seals don't clear the window either. One aspect of the Mk2 I don't like compared to the Mark 1.
  12. Let's See Your Best Workplace Views!!

    My Monday to Friday view is of a pie factory (which stinks). My weekend office has a much better view though.

    If they are diesel ones.... Sorry... ;)
  14. Pointless Cubby Hole

    I have a kill switch for my DRL's in mine. Other than that I don't use it either.
  15. Philips X-treme vision (or something like that)work well too. I've had better performance with them over the night breakers personally.
