Posted 10 May 2013 - 10:17 AM

A week ago whilst driving/pulling out of a junction my coil light started flashing and i went limp

 

got home, turned engine off and back on.....fault gone

 

since then i get the flashing light on but after 2 miles i can stop/start and carry on with no problem, i drive 100 miles a day, 6 days a week

 

ive no smoke of any kind (except a bit under throttle - typical EGR valve)

 

ive changed the fuel filter, cleaned the MAF, cleaned out the EGR (which i had ri=un blanked off for 9 months)

 

the cars done 170K  (1ook of which ive done)

 

apart from the first 2 miles im getting good performance and 50mpg

 

any ideas?

 

i suspect the turbo actuator as once the arm is bolt upright after starting i get no problem but 1st start of a day the arm settle back a fraction

 

cheers

 

PS ive just got a Super-F lead and cd so i can read the errors codes soon

your egr is maybe stuck. the 1328 code is a bit more daunting.maybe your injectors

what software is that?formidable? what cable can be used with it?elm?looks like your egr isnt opening at all if your cars idling(0mm).#

16kpa for map seems low also,no?(100 kpa in 1 bar i think)

Did you take the EGR blanking plate off? best to stick it back on (solid, stainless steel plate)

The EGR wont open under nil load anyway (car was at standstill), as with finding a split EGR pipe, you can rev it when not moving but drive it and the pipe comes under pressure

The fault is "Sticky variable vanes" i popped the turbo-actuator arm off and its very stiff, whacking it to/fro and spraying oil down the arm almost makes it OK

 

in garage on thursday for turbo decoke and im handing them an Innotec kit to use too

 

some use Mr Muscle!

Best to blank the EGR valve anyway (solid, stainless steel plate) one less thing to go wrong/ will stop the inlet mnifold being contaminated etc etc  

 

Yes, the variable vanes get coked up and are a common problem on these cars, if the engine is producing extra smoke/ carbon, the vanes can get coked up quicker (for example if you run the car with the EGR unblanked)

Problem is the MOT tests will soon take an EML as an instant fail, so sooner or later you have to run the EGR working, if its been non-working and blanked for a year it needs a few hundred miles just to blow the cobwebs out although i van no clear rhe EML light with the Formidable

I presume you mean "i plan to clear the EML light with the Formidable" on the last part of your post?

 

the EGR  does not need a few hundred miles to "blow the cobwebs out" every second the EGR is unblanked it is contaminating the inlet manifold etc, so the reverse is true  

 

Yes, the UK MOT will fail a car with the EML on now, but thats just the day of the test (not the day before, or the day after)

 

The EML coming on seems to be a problem for the euro4 Mondeos, and not euro4 Focuses or any euro3 Ford (diesels)

 

Is your EGR still blanked now? / if so, how long was it unblanked?

The egr WILL open when cars at standstill at idle by the way. Formidable needs fsuper cable to work properly. If u have elm cable try pcmscan-really good prog,& its there to be found for free if you look online

IF ITS BEEN BLANKED AND I HAVE AN EML ON


 


the EGR  does not need a few hundred miles to "blow the cobwebs out"
every second the EGR is unblanked it is contaminating the inlet manifold
etc, so the reverse is true  

 

THE PIPE FROM THE TURBO MUST GET INPUT EVEN WHEN BLANKED, SO IT NEEDS TO CLEAR THAT CRAP


 


Yes, the UK MOT will fail a car with the EML on now, but thats just the day of the test (not the day before, or the day after)

 

THE EML ISNT A FAIL YET BUT SOON WILL BE


 


The EML coming on seems to be a problem for the euro4 Mondeos, and not euro4 Focuses or any euro3 Ford (diesels)


DIFFERENT ENGINES, DIFFERENT EGR

 


Is your EGR still blanked now? / if so, how long was it unblanked?

 

BLANKED 18 MONTHS, UNBLANKED 2 WEEKS

 

i CAN PULL THE VACUUM PIPE OFF IN SECONDS TO PROVE THE EGR

 

 

IVE CHANGED CAM SENSORS, CLEANED THE MAF SENSOR, NEW FILTERS, AND RUN IT IN MY TENURE FOR 100,000 MILES, ITS HAD DMF/CLUTCH/STARTER/AUX BELT+TENSIONER, WATER PUMP, AND MANY SUSPENSION BITS DUE TO POOR ROADS (IN GENERAL)

 

ITS HAD AN INJECTOR KNOCK AT JUST THE LOADING POINT (AS PULLING AWAY) WHICH DIMINISHES IF I PUT FORTE DIESEL TREATMENT IN, IVE FILLED UP WITH SHELL NITRO AND ADDED MILLERS THIS TIME

 

COST ME £4250 TO BUY, ABOUT £2000 TO KEEP RUNNING, WORTH ABOUT £1750 NOW, ON 170,000 COUNCIL WONT LET ME PLATE IT AFTER 200k

The EML was on due to the blanked EGR, after 10 miles unblanked it goes off anyway but ive also cleared the code (for EGR) using the F super 150

good good. I have a good few apps on my iphone that can be used with elm327 bluetooth nowadays. got em free from appcake as well. now that the famous roqybt4 bluetooth programme has appeared online(for nothing if u know where to look).

I have Rev,Dashcommand etc. theyre quite good apps!(ALL FREE!!LOL)

I just throw my bluetooth elm327 into glove compartment,when i need it,plug it in,start roqybt4 app,then start dashcommand,& clear codes etc till my hearts content. gives info on PID's & live data etc.(like it a lot)
