In Topic: Noise In Aux Belt Area

have you had the timing belt done recently, or does the housing look distorted?

had a similar noise on the wifes car which was the housing rubbing on the timing belt edge.

if you do remove the injector be carefull to remove and replace the copper washer at the base. It doesnt always come out with the injector, I used a piece of copper wire to hook it out. The injector wont need recoding.

Also make sure you grip the link nut with another spanner so as to not spin this out as this will effect the calibration.

As with all injector/fuel repairs make sure you clean around the area first and cover all inlets and outlets to avoid contamination.

Just had a similar issue with the wifes focus caused by egr cleaner and a leaky seal which I ended up changing all 4 injectors and having to recode them to the PCM!

has the pollen filter been changed recently?

The fuse box located in front of the pollen filter needs to be removed or at least flipped forward, is there a chance that the multi plugs attached to the back are loose/ not clipped down properly?

In Topic: Injectors Cleaning?

Wynns gets the vote from me, but go to the wynns website as they recommend a combination of 2 items.

I used the egr3 for the dry intake and diesel clean3 for the fuel addative. worked well on mine and also helped with the DPF filter cleanup too.

In Topic: Second Key

if you look in your vehicle handbook it has a section on programming a second key, something about turning the ignition on and off so many times in 6 seconds then pressing a button on the new key.
