In Topic: My Cars Been Damaged

23 January 2015 - 04:20 PM

Unfortunately I'm in kent so a few mile away.

I didn't really want to go through insurance cause as you day it wouldn't really be worthwhile.

I'll have to wait until payday then have a look into getting it sorted. Least I now know there is a chance of a smart repair.

Thanks all.

In Topic: Temperature Gauge Moving Around

Hi ya

So your saying that it sits in the middle of the gauge and don't move.

Or it sits on the 60 and don't move.

Mine usually sits slap bang in the middle of the gauge and doesn't ever move.

It cost me 80 quid but that included a software update to. But considering it solved my problem I thought it was good value.

I don't know if this will help but I had very similar symptoms on a 2.0tdci mk 3.

It turned out that the injectors needed recalibrating. After ford had done that the thing was completely fine until I sold it a couple of years later.

Symptoms I had were you would turn the key and it would kind if start but it would hover around the 500 rev mark. Really lumpy Nd the throttle didn't respond.

Turning it off and back on again usually solved it.

Only happened when hot. Like going to get fuel or stopping somewhere for a short period.

Hope this helps
Adrian.

In Topic: Droning From Engine At 1800Rpm Or More...

I have no idea if this will help but I have the same engine and I had what I would describe as a whirring noise at around the same revs but I noticed mine disappeared when I turned the air con off.

I took it to my ford dealership as it was service time and they rang to say the air con was due a service.

I told them to go ahead. When I got the car back they didn't charge me which I thought was strange but the whirring has gone. So I'm happy

As I say dunno if it's the same or not but you never know.

Thanks
Adrian.
