the codes point towards injector trouble, get a leak off test done.

Fuel rail pressure sensor could be duff,
Sad thing is, although they look to be easy to replace, apparently this is not recommended and a whole fuel rail would be required.

Thanks Guys, I am tempted to do the DIY route which is my normal style but as everyone seams to have bad experiences so I think I am off to my local MOT guy as I found out he is ex Ford and might have a good name for this.
Wish me luck

Oh great I knew Id find a topic on this here. Mine is doing the same apart from its idling normally, all I do get is loss of power when the glow plug light flashes. Im really hoping it doesnt end up being injectors

Had mine plugged in today, turns out it is the EGR valve. Im going to attempt to remove it and clean it myself before spending any ridiculous amounts of money on a new one. I did get a price from the guy who plugged it for me, think he rang Ford because the part alone came out at just over £215. I have just looked on eBay and the first one I came across was £119 so I have a lot of shopping around to do before commiting. If I can get the old one off and back on again after cleaning, then surely I can fit a new one too?? #Novice

Unless I remove it, put it back together and end up with one bolt left over..............scratchy head time :D

So, I removed the EGR valve and cleaned it. After I fitted it back on I took her out for a spin and would you believe it she was running like a dream!! However later on i went to go out again and there it was...............flashing glow plug light and loss of power. New valve it is then :(

Update, the valve woke up and started working so up until this morning was running like a dream. Unfortunately shes firing but dying straight away so I hope its the valve stuck open or something. Im gonna order a blanking plate and see how that goes, Ive ordered a code reader too. I though keeping it as cheap and easy as possible to start with is the best option. Hope its not the injectors!!!!

Mine was flashing, then it stopped when i changed the valve. As for the engine management light my new cheapo ebay special reader reset it for me straight away..............better than extortionate garage prices
