  1. Ok finally got this to work as my laptop started messing around with the drivers for the ELM 327 Anyway im not sure what i was to do, and this is as far as i went, The car has been fine for the last couple of weeks with no issuses at all What is the next step?? Cheers Neil
  2. Hi guys, thanks for the links, I will purchase the lead and download the software, and then go from there the problem is intermittent, it can goes a couple of days without anything, then it will just happen
  3. Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/152204637863 Is this is? Many thanks neil
  4. Firstly thanks for the reply, I drove the car all day today without an issue, until about 3miles away from home, loss of power and the light flashing again, I turned it off and restarted it, and it was fine..... the blue smoke on 1st start up has been there for quite some time, my mate has always said it's a valve stem oil seal, and that the blue smoke is just oil burning off that's passed the seal. Just didn't know if it was related. The cars going in for a service next week so might get a new actuator, and go from there, Any thoughts? Thanks Neil Thanksfor the advice, I had a quick look earlier, forscan is a free app or download for free, it's the lead that cost about 15 quid on ebay Is that correct.

  6. Hi guys, haven't been on here for a while as the mondeo has been faultless, until this morning Driving down the road, two minutes from start up, there is like a dull pop and a loss of power, The yellow glow plug light starts to flash I drive it to my mates garage which luckily was a mile away and parked her up. Out of interest I started it up, which was straight away, and it ran smoothly. My mate put it on his code reader and it came up with" P132B turbo boost pressure sensor " I took the arm off the actuator and the vanes seemed to move freely, Maybe its related or not, but I do get a fair puff of blue smoke when I first start it up..... I have read about cleaners, new turbos, new actuators, but was wondering what do you guys think Many thanks Neil
  7. thanks for the reply Mcbain, i will get my mate to have a look at the hoses and see what we have got. anyone got any other ideas to look for whilst its up on the ramp thanks
  8. Guys, over the last couple of weeks my car has developed a bit of a fault. whilst coasting at any speed, the car judders slightly, every sort of 3 seconds, its a sort of cycle with power and then lack of power, when the power is "on" there is dark smoke coming from the exhaust, and then when the power is "off" the smoke goes, i have also noticed a drop in fuel economy and a slight loss of power...... my mate had a quick look and done a leak off test (i think that was what it was) and the 4 bottles filled at nigh on the same rate. the injectors were replaced on the 24/10/13, before i brought the car, (this was confirmed by recipt and by the garage). i have no dash lights on, and there are no codes showing any ideas please

  11. thanks for the replys guys, i have just been going through the forum reading up on modeo problems...... so if i get the car, how do i tell if its the euro 3 / 4 engine and is it a case of just fitting the ERG blanking plate, (saved in my Ebay watch list already) and thats it??? where/what is the AUX belt and how do i check it? how do you check a turbo? sorry if i sound stupid, but i am :(
  12. Hi, after spending a shed load of money on my car (Skoda), i have decided to get shot of it, and after speaking with my mechanic best friend get a mondeo, i am looking for about a 2004-5 model hopefully a ghia x 2ltr TDCI, but my buget is about £2000-£2500, so im into the 100,000 mile as least territory, so my first (of many i guess) is what do i look out for considering the mileage, do these have ERG valves of DPFs, if so are they a cheap/easy fix timing belt or chain ect ect any help would be great as i know nothing about motors many thanks in advance, Neil
