Focus 1.6Tdci 2007 Pcm Programming

04 September 2013 - 06:51 AM

Well this car is really bugging me now, had to recode the injectors that failed and IDS reported that the PCM had an update. So went into new module instead of update (error) :o . Update began with an erase and then stopped. Unable to update the PCM just gives an error message. I have disconnected the battery to try to reboot my question is....has anyone else had this issue? and how did you resolve it?

2007 2.0 Tdci Lack Of Power Going Up Hill

06 February 2013 - 08:31 AM

Can anyone offer any suggestions to my problem?
I recently changed the filters on my Focus 2.0 tdci 2006 to try to get rid of the power loss that sometimes happened under hard acceleration. All was fine until the dreaded restart when bleeding the fuel through, anyway having turned the engine over...and over to finally read the haynes manual (note to self read first) i decided to use my workshop vacuum cleaner to help....worked well and managed to get the car started again much to my relief! Took it for a run only to find a complete lack of power under acceleration. I have checked the diagnostic to find injector 2 problem and turbo boost problem (both have reset) and car does pull a bit better but is just gutless on the hills....its just like there is no boost...but going downhill its fine and on the level fine too. I had the alternator changed yesterday (piggy is well raided) as this had the whineing problem and the whineing has now gone from the engine bay and has now moved to the passenger seat! (when she is in he car with me :rolleyes: ) anyway after the work the car seemed fine electrically anyway but last night the engine management light came on and when checked showed a turbo boost problem.
I don't want to just change the turbo if it is something simple like a pressure sensor so if anyone has a suggestion I'm all ears?

Also can anyone recommend a good diesel specialist in the Gloucester area as I think I may need more support on this car!!!
