Hello everyone

as you have noticed i haven't been on here i went down the coast to yarmouth for tyhe weekend !Removed! good weekend shame i had to come home but anyways

Friday i finally bit the bullet stalling still keeps happening car still squeeks time to take it to ford to have the pcm re programmed as i think its that but they said they would find the fault as they have a specialist at there ford centre basically a RTE (Renault technicla expert) just a ford one but its where i buy my parts from so they do now who i am

one big !Removed! problem


75+VAT TO DIAGNOSE FOR THE HOUR

But to be quite honest i have tried everything to get rid of this stalling and im now going round in circles lol


booked in for 10th october so i will let you all now how it goes

That is expensive but like you said if it finally sorts the problem out it'll be worth it!

YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
YYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the stalling has gone yay the aqueek they couldnt find but you now how hard it is the bloke said how i described it sounded like the water pump cost around 200 to replace but not to be too hasty


the pcm did need reprogramming he said its quite rare they get them problems in about 2 every year if that so i was right somewhere about it beng the pcm READ IT IN A TECHNICAL NOTE

they also said my car was in very good condition and looked well after i said to him i put a lot of time and money into that car thats why like


anyways got charged 44.60 something top price really considering its helped the stalling well stopped it all together i have had the cam reset and the latest calibration file put in my pcm



Thanks alll


We should make this a sticky
