  1. As I understand, you need to install software on laptop and connect cable to laptop inside your car to run it the software. Then first you need to do to save current setting on each page of software and then you can start to make changes. Hope this help
  2. Correct me if I'm wrong but with ELM327 software and cable I can remap EGR to not giving me error after EGR blanking?
  3. OK will test this oil for some time...
  4. I was yesterday at the mechanics to replace the oil and filter. He told me that he have Ford oil, not to worry. I thought as I already talked to him before that he has Motorcraft or Ford oil but ... I come back and he gives me rest of a 5L Total Quartz 9000 oil (5W-40). Well, how?! It is this oil: Oil is for Citroen, Peugeot, BMW ... but no for Ford and it does not say that it'sunder the specification WSS-M2C913-B, but only ACEA A3/B4, and Ford bible says: If you are unable to find an oil that meets the specification defined by WSS-M2C913-B, you must use SAE 5W-30 (preferred), SAE 5W-40 (except Flexfuel vehicles) or SAE 10W-40 that meets the specification defined by either ACEA A1/B1 (preferred) or ACEA A3/B3. Using these oils can result in longer engine cranking periods, reduced engine performance, reduced fuel economy and increased emission levels.What do you think? Should I remove this oil out and change proper oil?
  5. Thx for reply... I will change oil and filter tomorrrow and see how it's going... Considering EGR valve... I see there is way to clean it, I will do that for begining. If that is not good enough will remove EGR valve.

  7. mostly, weekends out of town... but I fill tank to top and make 102km and fill it up with same gas pistol and it fill 7.5 liters pure city drive. It shows me 7.8 on BC...
