  1. Your were spot on mate intercooler pipe had a 3 inch split relaced it still smoking but no judders hopefully it will clear after a good run out.Thanks again all !!!!!
  2. I had the egr and inlet manifold off a few weeks ago and gave them a good cleaning still had juddering and seemed to still be smoking,do you think it could be split in boost pipe from egr to intercooler?. Only 72k with full service history how easy is it to look actuater arm?.Could i have a faulty egr valve?
  3. Any ideas what this points to ? all i know is it is turbo boost system performance,Turbo? car is now in limp mode i have a obd reader this is how i got the code but i dont want to erase it so i can show mechanic if need be.Thanks
  4. Had glow plug flashing today found code p2263 turbo boost sytem performance any ideas what this points to? Thanks
  5. Hi I need to get the pipe off the egr valve as i think there might be a leak in it how do i get the bottom off as it looks difficult to get to? Thanks
  6. Hi Thanks for the reply it only does it when i hit about 45-50 mph when im in 4th if i accelerate to say 60-70 it goes away come back down and its there again it lasts up to say 20 seconds. I have noticed i am getting black smoke aswell when i accelerate hard ,took it for a good blast down motorway and up a big hill in 2nd gear loads came away but its still smoking. My milage is 67k always serviced it but to be fair the car is used a lot for short distances so im assuming theres going to be a build up of soot somewhere.I have located egr at the front left of the engine cant see any splits in the large pipe although its hard to get a good look.How easy is it to take egr valve off and give it a good clean? theres only one electrical connector and a few bolts dubilee clip,if i disconnect the electrical connector will it show up light on dash as fault code?(read this somewhere) whats the best way to clean it ,carb cleaner ,soap and water? Thanks for the help
  7. Hi Just thought i would give you guys a try as im having a problem with my 2005 mondeo tdci 130 ghia x,The problem im having is when i get into 4th gear and hit about 45/50 mph the car starts to judder when i bring the speed down it goes away.Any ideas i have checked on the internet for any common problems and the only thing i can seem to find is to check hoses for any leaks. Any help would be great cheers ;)
