Run the fuel low and when you fill up empty the whole tin in first then fill up with diesel, get on the motorway and put your foot down!

 

Ah ok doke, would something like redex work just as well? Only I dunno when my car will start working and I could buy a bottle of redex at a petrol station haha :P

Getting it cleaned could be expensive if you take it to a garage, my Mondeo suffered the same problem and I cleaned mine myself, took me all day!

 

Yes it can be intermittent, you could try a fuel additive such as BG244 and take the car for a high speed run and see if that cleans it out.

EGR assembly is a big lump, not sure what parts are replaceable. I would have it removed and checked for operation first, may just need a clean.


Ah. Im beginning to think I might just be better selling the car, it sounds like even just getting that cleaned could be an expensive job :/
Would a faulty egr valve work sometimes & not work other times? Just wondering as the car seems to be going through phases of being fine then becomes undriveable :(

I will hazard a guess and say that is the EGR valve or actuator making that noise. If the EGR valve sticks open this will cause the EML light to come on and the car will go into limp home mode, hence the poor throttle response.


Thanks for the reply, is the eml light the same thing as the transmission light?
Also any ideas how much it costs to replace an egr valve? :/

In Topic: Footwell Lighting

Thanks stoney, ^_^

For those who have the bulb holders but no power,
they should purchase Qty: 2
of this Cable which would be 4 metres of cable. http://www.ebay.co.u...=item27bd5915eb
cut the existing loom around two inches from the bulb sockets and fit this loom running the two sockets off the one single run of cable then up the A pillar and splice in to the blue and black cables at the rear of the interior light.

Blue = Positive +
Black = Negative -

For those who havent got the footwell light sockets or loom

They need to purchase the sockets to fit the holes which are here http://www.ebay.co.u...=item43ae09c359
plus the cable in the link above too.

finally for both fitments they will require some T10 w5w light bulbs of their choice.

if you also require some rear footwell lighting i can advisee on this too.
i have got Qty 2 of these in red led pods fitted under the front seats of my focus,
one stuck to the top of the footwell blower under each seat facing on to the rear footwells and wired in to the loom of the front footwell lighting.
here are some links to the pods for the rear footwell's.

Be sure to order Qty:2 in order to recieve two of them
