  1. Ok thanks. I'll give it a try. I'm getting rather frustrated with this. And apparently the 1.8 diesel engines were meant to be good
  2. Ok I'll do that first. Do you know if thats included in a full service by ford?
  3. Well it was all fixed up. Now the problem has returned -_- and this time its worse. It misfires in every gear on high revs. So far the symptons I got is, - lower mpg. So the range display wud show an amount of miles and I know I cant do the miles displayed with the amount of diesel left. Before the range used to be fairly accurate but once I ran the car to almost empty and the problem occured after that. - black smoke when turbo should kick in. So when I put my foot down I notice alot of smoke comes the exhaust around 2500 revs and above. So when the turbo shud kick in. - misfire. The misfire occurs whenever the turbo should kick in. I want to sag its the egr valve as after doing some research I think it could be that. Any idea what it could be?
  4. You where right jeebowhite. There was a split in the turbo pipe and funny thing was different mechanics had a look and said there is no split. Eventually I got a huge gaping hole and still no mechanic managed to spot it. The turbo was losing pressure and air was escaping out the split and you could hear it escaping. Eventually had to get a recovery man to have a look who spotted the fault in seconds. Need to get the pipe leading down under the engine replaced. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  5. I briefly had a look today. But havent seen anything yet. However I noticed a lot of grease and looks and feel liks oil on the bottom of one of the turbo pipes. Could this mean anything? Il have another look see when I get the chance. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  6. Lol, the only problem is, I dont know what turbo is or what it looks like. Whenever I close to redline it, I get a bit of black smoke but thort thats down to diesel cars. Also when I reverse I do get a fair bit of black smoke. Sometimes when I put my foot down all the way, a whole heap of black smoke comes out. But I thougjt thats down to something just collecting somewhere and den coming out on heavy acceleration. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  7. Yeah it works fine going to 4000 revs on all 5 gears. Its just that when I go on longer motorway journeys It wont go above 80mph. In other cases itl easily go over 80. Im thinking cud it possibly be something with the turbo when the engine warms up? Sometimes in lower goes I feel a little hiccup, but dats not all the tym.
