  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. Firmware Update

    Yes....unless ford are trying to connect to a different system...
  3. Firmware Update

    Just baffled me, because like I said I connected to it a month or so ago to program an injector
  4. Firmware Update

    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. Firmware Update

    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. 1.6Tdci Injector / Seals

    Ok thanks for the advice. Im still thinking the injector tho, as it moved within it self when trying to remove it.
  7. 1.6Tdci Injector / Seals

    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
