i remember a mate getting ticket at around 3am after he came home from work. the car was parked facing the wrong way so he got a ticket. wiithin 30 mins his brother took the car and saw the ticket. 3am FFS!
can imagine going to your car at 3am to see the clamper writing a ticket you ask " what the !Removed! you doing at my car?"
And he says "well erm, i couldn't sleep, so eh thought id clamp you instead" "drain the additional revenue from your pocket while your sleeping because i can "
I would of been too scared to run it down to zero in case it went before I got to the petrol station. Lol
Sent from my C5303 using Ford OC mobile app
well it happend me once, there were no stations around so i got brave since then lol
You can run a petrol to empty and put some in, then it goes,
But if diesel runs dry then you gotta bleed the fuel rail free of air i dont buy diesel from anywhere except Topaz so i passed five fuel stations on 0km this morning no offence to those five suppliers
Common problem is leaking injector or injectors,
There are videos of this on youtube,
Check top of engine for puddles of fuel aswell as a ticking noise.
You will also notice a cloud of smoke on first start up because the injector will fill the cylinder over night,
Now a leaking injector left untreated or undetected for a period of time can and will cause turbo failure, ill explain that in a minute,
Replacement injectors are a straight swap however there are two types for the 1.6tdci 90cc and 110cc
After swapping the injector needs diagnostic equipment to allow the ecu communicate with the variable valve in the injector,
TDCi is compact injection these injectors run off a very high pressure fuel rail ranging up to 600psi professional help is advised if changing
Now "how can a leaking injector wreck my turbo"
A leaking injector is one cause of excessive carbon,
The EGR is exhaust gas recirculation valve
It opens like a throttle but sucks in as much as 20% of tge waste gasses for recombustion,
If your burning dirty,
Then your suckin dirty,
Causing excessive carbon build up in your oil,
Which gathers in the turbo oil feed pipe blocking the supply,
Turbo runs dry and pops.
Blanking the egr valve with a stainless steel b"anking plat3 costs less than 5 pounds and ive created a fitting guide,
Ill continue before midday gotta go rite now ill be back
I made the video above on the way home from work this morning,
I got to the fuel station on 0km remaining.
Thought id video to show the second beep occouring
I also switched off the ESP to aid coasting momentum
i was more thinking of putting a plug in the front behind the dash. it is to connect a cb radio. but i would also think about putting one in the boot. is it already connected up for 12v? and what fuse does it run off? would you have an image showing me where it is?
the 12v supply in the boot will be active already,
It shares the same fuse as the main 12v supply,
Ya see ford fitted the same interior loom to all models saving money in build,
The ecu loom was then different depending on engine,
Ford only fitted a 12v socket to the loom on the ST models to power a 12v tyre compressor with foam,
But the loom should be in all spec Mk6 fiesta,
All you need to make it work is an earth feed and a 12v socket,
It can also be used to power an amp for a sub,
Unfirtunitly i dont have any other images of this but the loom is most likely either black or orange including the plug and will be taped to the loom see my focus guide here:
Should be much like this: http://www.fordowner...oot-focus-mk25/
i have a 2006 ford fiesta and it only has one 12v power socket. i have looked at the fuse box and it has one fuse for the socket i already have. the diagram also has a spot for an additional power socket. i was wondering if that power socket would already have power running to it or would i have to wire it in myself?
if your seeking to put a 12v socket in to the boot compartment of your 2006 fiesta,
There is already a 12v supply for a 12v socket fitted behind the panel in the boot on the drivers side.
