  1. So it's not huge but the first chance I've had to load it up. Impressed as that box is 4 foot wide. Sent from my HTC One S using Ford OC mobile app
  2. Long shot as I don't know where the egr valve is on your engine. Years ago when I was having trouble with my td4 freelander (BMW m47 engine) it turned out to be a clogged egr starving the engine of air and causing other issues i.e lumpy engine etc. As I didn't really know how to sort this at the time I sprayed pure acetone inside the egr every hour or so for a day to melt all the crap out. Worked a treat. Engine ran fine again. Egr valve was removed completely later on. PS Any acetone left over will harmlessly burn off through your engine. Other idea was a faulty injector/s?

  3. That's astounding. Great find. Sent from my HTC One S using Ford OC mobile app
  4. Glad you've got in. Don't use WD40 as it will attack the plastics ( brother in laws an auto electrician, he knows these things) use spray on white grease, such as easy grease by rapide. Cheers Mike Sent from my HTC One S using Ford OC mobile app
  5. Found this https://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20120306151428AAQek7U Sounds possible, but you may need to be double jointed! God luck Mike Sent from my HTC One S using Ford OC mobile app

  7. Owned one of these years ago, that was also a 2002. From what I remember Ford just threw the full options list at it. As you say leather interior and a/c but also heated front screen and the top end stereo. Always felt a stiffer ride than the standard, but can't say it was a different set up. anyway nice car and a bargain, keep your eye open for rust at the base of the doors and rear wheel arches. I always found premium higher octane fuel worked well in these engines. Enjoy Mike.
  8. Just bought a Fusion 3 1.4 tdci (more details in my post on the fusion section) Located in Rotherham South Yorkshire (near Meadowhall shopping center) Hope to get some good info off this site and contribute to some discussions. Anyway hello again. Mike
  9. Just to say hello. Bought a Ford Fusion last saturday and I'm well impressed already. Needed a car with more space as my Suzuki Alto was way to small. I bought a 2004 Fusion 3 1.4 tdci with 66000 on the clock, full service history and not a mark on it! It really looks like it's just come out of the showroom. Previous Fords owned are Mk1 fiesta L 950cc Mk2 fiesta 1 liter Puma Thunder (fooking fast!) Mk3.5 Fiesta Sapphire (yes I do mean. 3.5) Other cars Alfa Romeo 145 1.6 boxer (broke!) Alfa Romeo 145 junior t spark (also broke!) Citroen ax debut Citroen Saxon Landrover Freelander es td4 auto (still got this for pulling the caravan) No were not rich, just old enough to have owned lots of cars. Anyway a big hello to you all. Hope to join in a few discussions with you. Mike
