  1. Hi. A quick query Wife was driving her 1.4tdci fiesta on rhe duel carriageway the other day when the crackshaft snapped and locked the engine up. Sourced a second hand engine from they sent a 1.4hdi engine from a pug 206 - essentially the same engine. Garage has started fitting the engine, but have come to a halt because he says the gearbox bolts dont lineup. He said he can get the top 3 bolts in, but the bottom bolts are about 5-7mm out. Anybody come across this before? Thanks
  2. Yes....unless ford are trying to connect to a different system...
  3. Just baffled me, because like I said I connected to it a month or so ago to program an injector
  4. My mpg aint the best at the mo. 42mpg running round 49-50mpg on a run. Driving a 1.6tdci cmax. Wonder why they cant connect to the ECU when I can....
  5. Hello All, I want a software update on my Cmax and took it to my local stealers last week. They told me they couldnt do it because they couldnt connect to the ECU. i think this is abit of bull tbh because i had to reprogramme an injector about a month ago and i had no problems. Is it actually worth having the firmware update? What are the pros and cons? Thanks in advance
  6. Ok thanks for the advice. Im still thinking the injector tho, as it moved within it self when trying to remove it.
  7. Hi All, I 'fixed' a leaking injector seal a few months back, bt ever since, when I accelerate, i get black smoke and alot of vibration. I have come to the conclusion that I have damaged the injector when removing it, so now I have 2 options which I would like advise with #1. get a 2nd hand injector from Ebay/scrappy. If i do this option, can the injector be recoded to my car and will it start to get it to a garage to get it coded? #2. Remove current injector and get it repaired - if this is possible thanks in advanc Nathan
