  1. The pump just delivers , the pcm and injector govern how much , i'd swap your injector to another cylinder and see if the fault moves.
  2. I seem to remember them being fairly standard but with white dash clocks.
  3. If it is overcharging then check the red wire going to the 3 pin plug on the alternator , they tend to corrode and cause this.
  4. If the injector fails , then yes.
  5. Check your charge rate , if the alternator overcharges it could cause this
  6. Just make sure you torque the pulley bolt up correctly. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  7. Eml doesn't come into the test , I would personally pass and advise. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  8. Which fuse ? On fiesta (which I assume from your profile pic) it's one of the "maxi" block fuses at the bottom of the fusebox, this isn't shown in the manual.
  9. The 2 thicker wires are direct battery supply and should give consistent voltage , the third thinner wire is a signal wire from the pcm and is the one that i've found problems with before.
  10. All tyres now have to come with a rating , similar to fridges cookers etc Noise is part of it
  11. You'll get voltage by spinning the fan as a motor and a dynamo are essentially the same thing , but but used backwards to each other ! The wire generally breaks on the ns just past the headlamp where the loom forms a u shape , it seems to be where any overspill from the washer filler neck leaks down , look for stains.
  12. The thin wire is a control , you won't get an actual voltage down it , but I have seen more faults with this breaking than modules . Do you have access to a code reader ? the PCM will log a code if the circuit is open , but not put the mil on.
  13. This is a common misconception about hid headlamps , if you look at the relevant part of the manual here , you will see the wording shows you can't fail them for not having washers and auto leveling fitted , only for not working if they are fitted !
  14. Sounds like injector knock , inspect the shaft for play and rotors for damage , though as I said I've fixed loads of these with the TSB.
