So was leaving my work car park recently and evenings are getting a little colder. Turned on the car and was in a queue when I felt the car shuddering a little when in idle. I was leaving car in next day for a winter health check with my Ford dealer and mentioned this. To my complete shock I have been told I have 3 out of 4 fuel injectors defective, and they recommend I change them asap. The cost is massive £155+VAT and labour each in fact should do all 4 I was told. Does this sound correct? Very sudden with not many symptoms, and am wondering if they are just trying it on!!! Advise would be appreciated. I would have thought with such a large cost issue there would have been error codes, more symptoms etc.....
Ford Cmax 1.6DCi 2005. Garage recently changed cam belt and refurbished injectors as fumes coming into car. Fixed the exhaust gas smell but car lacking power and fuel consumption fallen through the roof from 52 mpg to 34mpg - sluugish on acceleration but otherwise as smooth as silk. They have re-checked evrything (not cam belt) and reset the computer. No difference. Anyone have any ideas? For instance, is it possible the cam belt has not been put on properly and the timing is out?
