  1. Alloys Refurb

    Yea I used masking tape took me about a day to do then left them to dry nicely over night Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  2. Alloys Refurb

    I refurbed some alloys I got from a scrap yard once they come on looking brand new. I sanded down any scuffs and gave it a light sand over every where else if you have any chips in it then you can buy a filling kit. Next I brought some alloy paint spray from halfords and done a light coat then left to dry then I kept repeating this process. Only do a little coat at a time otherwise it will run and make sure you do this outside if it's warm even better I advise doing it on newspapers it can get messy. After I was happy I then got some lacquer and applied to finish the paint also from halfords Good luck Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

    I've also read on here that tddi injectors do not need to be coded is that correct If so what sort of injectors on ebay do I need to look for and does that mean as soon as they turn up they can be put in? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

    Can someone explain to me injectors in child term haha Basically I think my injectors have gone what does that mean? Can I buy a set off of ebay and put straight in? If they need recoding can a normal garage do this Would it be cheaper sending mine off or getting from ebay Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  14. Hi guys, Hope someone can help?? I've got a 2.0 tddi and have had to call the aa today and they have towed the car to my garage The car was running fine but when I was going up a hill I got a pull back but ran as normal. About 7 miles later on a straight road doing about 60 mph I got another pull back and this time the engine management light started flashing and he car stalled. I stopes at the side of the road and restarted it almost instantly as I started moving again the same thing happened. I couldn't get the car to turn over after this when the aa man came he played around managed to get it to start but then it stalled as he put his foot down on the accelerator???? It's now at the garage but wanted to know if anyone had any ideas the aa man said it could be a pressure switch or something. The car has been sluggish from when I brought her and hates hills i found a hole in the inter cooler pipe and have changed it but still very sluggish on hills I have to sit at 4 thousand revs for any difference in the power Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
