Mk 3 Injectors

04 July 2013 - 03:02 AM

Good morning all,

 I have recently taken out my injectors ( and marked them 1 2 3 4 ) and took them to a diesel specialist.

It turns out they are all the original injectors and having done over 150,000 they are kn*****ed. I really don't think it is viable to replace them all as the car is only worth £1000- £1200. Although apart from the injectors it was running fine. I put the injectors back on the car and bled it up to the injectors. After a couple of turns it started ran very lumpy for a couple of minutes the cut out. started it again and it did the same. This is as far as I have got, I keep starting it and it keeps cutting out. If I put my foot on the accelerator nothing happens, it's as if the peddle does not exist. Has anyone got any ideas, as the road tax ran out and I need to get it off the road and into my drive and sorned. I don't want to be fined by the nice people at the DVLA.

Any help and advice would be gratefully received.





Injector Codeing

23 April 2013 - 05:06 AM

Good morning all,

I was wondering if there was anyone in the Hertfordshire area that may be able to code some new injectors for me, if I decide to get them.
Obviously I would not expect this to be done for nothing.



Injector Removal, Help Needed.

06 April 2013 - 04:37 AM

Morning all,
I got the socket with the window for removing the injectors as suggested. After removing the fuel lines etc the socket will not drop down over the injector completely. Do I have to remove the top half ie where the lines attach ?
your help will be greatfully received.

Cheers George

Injector Socket Size

16 March 2013 - 06:57 AM

Good morning all,


I have posted in the past regarding the dreaded flashing glow plug syndrome. After trying many different solutions, even buying another injection pump on the advice of an expert garage lol. The best advice I have had, was to go to a diesel specialist and have a leak off test. This done it turns out my injectors are knackered. I wish i had done this many months ago when the symptoms first started. I am going to get mine reconned so i dont have to reprogram them. Can anyone tell me what size socket is needed to do the job.My local factors have told me there is a 22mm and a 27mm socket with the cut outs, both for a Mondeo 2003 tdci.I hope someone will be able to advise me which one to go for. I also know there is a fitting kit for the alighnment, I was wondering if this was really necessary. as always your input would be very welcome.




Tdci Fuel Pump Tools

22 January 2013 - 09:11 PM

I was wondering if anyone out there would be able to point me in the right direction in getting hold of a pump sprocket locking tool. I have got another pump with the same codes as the one on my motor, but have been told that you really need this tool. Hire or buy I don't mind. I live in Hertfordshire in case anyone fairly close has one. your help would be thankfully received.

Many thanks
