2.0Tdci Help Please?
Posted 07 January 2012 - 11:28 PM
I have just bought a 2006 2.0 tdci titanium that has covered 54k with full Ford history. We have only had it a couple of days and noticed that when starting from cold it seems to idle a little rough (like a slight pulse and not constant/smooth), although no problems starting at all. It appears that when The engine is warm it idles fine, is this just normal?
The second issue is that when driving at low speed/rpm the car seems a little hesitant or sometimes juddery when accelerating from low rpm in say second/third gear. Appart from this it drives beautifully and pulls hard in every gear. Does anyone have any ideas?
I did get a 3 month warranty when I bought it so hoping if there are any major issues I can get them sorted!!
Any advice would be great, thanks in advance!!

I have it booked into my local Ford garage tomorrow morning so will let you know how I get on! Hopefully it will be an easy fix and nothing too serious. Will let you know how I get on...

The Ford dealer wanted £85/hour in labour just to plug the car in diagnostics which I thought was a bit excessive to say the least!!!
So went to a friendly local garage who plugged it up to the same bit of kit (whilst I stood there and watched) and it came up with 3 EGR valve error codes. The garage have said that they can clean the valve out (as no need to replace the unit as a good clean should do the trick) but its at the back of the engine so likely to take a bit longer to do. They have quoted me £100 to do the job which I think sounds reasonable?! They did not even charge me for the half hours work they did today!!
Let's hope this does the trick as I really like the car and we are very happy with it. Not impressed with Ford dealership so far and looks like they would have charged me almost the same in labour to find the problem, not even fix it!!
Sounds like this EGR valve is a common problem but one that's easily sorted. Will keep you updated as booked in to fix in 2 days time...
