7 posts in this topic

Hey there not used car sites for a long whole now had plenty of fords mk1 focuses mk3 mondeos m2 mondeo mk6 escorts mk4 fiesta mk6 fiesta, and my favourite an mk4 escort rs turbo 88 spec, had a couple of vauxhalls aswel and toyotas

Anyways I now have a focus 1.6 tdci mk2, I bought it yo be cheap and cheerful its not a bad car, unfortunately ive got an issue with it going in limp mode if going up a steep hill or going over 70 on motorway its done it since I got it but it only happons now and again and goes away if turned off, ive serviced it sinve then and now have a oil leak near turbo, no problem with turbo its fine ive had it appart and checked, I was thinking it might be boost preasure sensor but ive cleabed that out problem still there allthough I still think this is the culprit, the car smokes now and again especially on startup well I went to blank the egr valve and sone nob has rounded the torx bolts cab get one side off but not the other I think this is stuck open as I cannot here it doing a noise when engine turned off, can anyone advise me what to do I can get a video of what the car does if anyones wants to see

Hi Gaz

I think thats the powertrain light you refer to, in which case, it could still be the EGR, as if the electrics are misbehaving then this would cause an error similar.

Have you done the dash trick to check for error codes? try disconnecting the EGR valve and trying again?

How do I do the dash trick is it the one where you hold down the trip reset, mines a lx model so no trip computer vodes fo come up but not a clue which ones I need to look at, how do you disconnect the egr I couldent see a plug on it, the car drives soo much better since blanking it but as soon as it goes over 3k in 2nd or 3rd it gets that light worse if on a hill

yeah thats the trick but if you dont have the computer you would need an OBD code reader. See my signature for a link and a guide on how to go about buying one :)
