1.8 Tdci Idle Problem

10 posts in this topic

heres a video of my 1.8 tdci focus, it has an issue where when its on its way back down to idle it sticks at around 1200rpm for long periods of time and the car shakes loads (see video at 0.19s)

does anyone one else have the same, is it normal ?

thankyou :)

mine did this for a few weeks where i neglected to go on motorways etc.

Give the EGR a good clean and throw it down the motorway at 3k revs for 20 mins...cleans the EGR right up. Now i dont have this issue and the car feels more responsive.

Does the engine tone differ between the high and low? May need more than 1 trip to do it

been to ford it has injector 1 & 2 blow back, so im assuming that's causing problem, not very happy, only had the car 4 months.

needless to say its going back to the dealer i had it from and they will be sorting it, as i rang them and went ballistic. I was told the car was 100% on purchase
