In Topic: Ford Service Disaster

Have a quiet word with the service manager and explain the facts of life to him then demand a: reimbursement of service charge, b: full engine steam clean c: written guarantee that any failure of ancillary belts within a reasonable time scale will be replaced FOC, if he or she is not compliant contact trading standards from thei garage and then see if that prods them into action. The simple fact of the matter is that you were lucky not to have been travelling at speed and suffer a siezed engine, that would have really sent the bill sky high. Perhaps manufacturers (or owners) should attach a string or something to the filler cap so its plainly obvious to replace it.

Thanks for the reply. Just did a 40 mile round trip and it lost boost after about 10+ miles, turned engine off and restarted with no further probs(fingers crossed). The service did not include a fuel filter change so that may be first option, also EGR clean, had similar problems with fuel filter on my old Mk3 which affected turbo boost. Will also check piepwork although I don't think it's that.
