#533122 Took My 2.0tdci C-max For A Service And It No Longer Starts

Posted by mintalkin on 20 October 2015 - 12:30 PM

the garage would have seen evedence of this before changing the filter and seeing as you drove 33 miles to the garage with no ill effects of the fuel filter housing crack i would say the garage cause the damage.

the fuel is usually pulled through at the filter with some kind of vacume device the garage which did the service should know this.

i would give the egr valve and manifold a clean to see if this improves the situation, its a messy job but can be done with a few basic tools.

#479665 Mondeo Possible Turbo Issues

Posted by mintalkin on 25 April 2015 - 04:43 PM

it sounds like you could have a split turbo hose check for signs of damage on all of the hoses, also check the intercooler hose, this is the large hose on the bottom og the egr valve.

thats why air ratchets should never be used to tighten wheel nuts,but how many fast fit cnt's have you seen do this and how many do you see use a torque wrench afterwards.

#462270 Bad Place To Cross The Road And Who Is Wrong: Lorry Or Van?

Posted by mintalkin on 07 March 2015 - 05:05 PM

if you look at the indicators of the lorry in the outside lane he was indicating to come back into the inside lane before the broken lines of the slip road, the van driver should have seen this and adjusted his speed to allow the lorrry back in before exiting the slip road.as an hgv driver i see this every day you are kind enough to pull over to the outside lane to allow a car onto a duel carrageway but as the truck is limited to 56mph the car you have just let in then increases there speed to undertake the truck and leaves you sitting in the outside lane ( instead of letting the truck overtake leaving the car to then overtake the truck ), it all comes down to impatiance.also the van did not indicate to leav the sliproad till the last minute.

i would never use a jump start as the smart charge system will try and zap 18 volts into the dead battery which can fry componants.

try reseting the auto close,operate the switch to close the window,release switch for one second and then operate the switch to close and hold for two seconds.this should reset the window,do the same for the down operation.
