Plastic Straw Sucked Into Intake

08 December 2014 - 01:44 PM

Yes, i was cleaning the EGR/Intake manifold with Wynns Diesel EGR Cleaner during lunch, i decided the use the plastic straw this time to try to get it towards the furthest cylinder, i even held the straw with my hand but momentarily lost contact as i wiggled the can around and the straw went straight into the intake. it did make clattering noises for a few seconds before i switched the engine off.


turned the engine back on and it made some knocking noises for a few seconds but then everything went back to normal. i let it idle (engine temp was already around 110c) for 10-20mins and it seems fine now, even while driving.


im hoping that it has just melted away inside the cylinder head but is there anything i should do? a couple of forums suggest sticking a vaccum cleaner on the end of the intake and sucking to see if anything comes out  

2008 1.8 Tdci Injectors In 2006 Focus

02 July 2014 - 08:44 AM

Hi, i have seen a list for the injectors on a 2008 Focus 1.8 TDCI with the 4m5q-9f593-ad ADQTL FC30 listed as the model code. i currently have 4m5q-9f593-ad ADQTL EE21 on the car.


I know the 2008 models have a 125hp from the engine and mine has 115, will a new ECU/wiring/programming be needed to upgrade to these injectors?


I will not need to re-code the injectors on my car as that was only for the pre-MK2 delphi injectors. so it should be a straight swap, im just not sure of the difference in injector codes that will mean more than just a straight change


Can anyone shed some light on this?
