In Topic: Warranty Questions??

Today, 05:26 PM

You would be surprised.    You can disbelieve me if you want but I have seen this written into a warranty.   They can then use it to get out of paying for anything.  This is why I said read the small print.

As Alex says I would imagine it's only if you use Ford approved parts.   Read the warranty carefully.   I have seen some which say if the car is modified in any way the whole warranty is void.


In Topic: Good Insurance Companies?

Yesterday, 08:09 AM

Some are brokers and some are insurance companies.  You will normally only hear of those who spend a lot on advertising. Other insurers rely on brokers to promote them.   But some larger brokers are also paying to appear on the comparison sites so in effect you are going to a comparison site to go through a broker to go with an insurer...... 

 

If you have not heard of the name do a Google of them, check they have a UK head office and are registered with UK regulators. 

 

Never ever visit an insurer through a link sent to you on Facebook or Twitter etc.   There are still fake insurance quote sites out there.

In Topic: Egr Blanking On Euro 4

18 August 2014 - 01:47 PM

Your ECU is re-learning after the clean and should settle down.   When I took my EGR apart and saw it had rusted for the reasons I gave in my post above I simply replaced it (after making the drain hole bigger) and it worked perfectly until I eventually sold the car.  At the end of the day if your valve is shot no amount of cleaning it will work.  

 

I applaud FOCA on his passionate essay but the original poster said he has a Euro 4 and I said the EML light will fail his MOT.  I did mention that EGR blanking worked better on the Euro3.

I am sure that the expert FOCA will be able to explain how to blank the Euro 4 and guarantee the EML light will not come on and fail the MOT.   I hope there is a way now (there certainly wasn't during the years I was on the forums and had my Euro 4) as this will help a lot of people.

I don't want Nate to fake the EML light from coming on to get through the MOT because this can disguise any genuine faults that may occur later....
