Hello everyone I am new here I have a 54 plate focus 1.8 tdci I have a few questions to ask if anyone could help me ?

The unit is standard apart from a tdi tuning box and a piper-cross air filter in box type if the makes sense- any how I have noticed a small amount of black soot appearing on the tip of the exhaust should I be worried ?


Also when I change gear (any) the engine seems to retain it revs may-be around 3 of 4 seconds after I de press the accelerator is slow to release or is just me ?

Any info / help would be good as my ownership of the focus lengthens any issue I have with it I will monitor post possible fixes / things to check / workarounds that has worked for me.

Have something to contribute?

Hi, try disconnecting the tuning box, if it one connected into the ecu through the diagnostic port, then see what happens...
