  1. S-Max Intermittent Starting Issues

    I can get hold of one of the Android bluetooth OBD error readers - not sure how good they are though. Tried it before and didn't receive any fault codes (mind you the dealers didn't either) - is there a specific code I should be looking for?
  2. S-Max Intermittent Starting Issues

    Was a Ford dealer. It was happening a bit beforehand but not failing to start - I did think the service would solve it.
  3. My S-Max 2.0 TDCI has just started having intermittent starting issues. The engine turns over but doesn't start and doesn't happen every time. It also seems to start if I apply some throttle after it starts ticking over - I thought you weren't supposed to do this on diesels? The car was only serviced two weeks ago and the garage also read for any fault codes but there weren't any. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks
  4. Intermittent Starting Failure

    Did you ever find out what the issue/fix was? - I'm having this exact issue on my 2.0 TDCI. Thanks
