old skool motoring! best way to go!

all this car has given me is headache

its got good features on it

touchscreen ,climate control, heated seats ,electric seats which have never worked, !Removed! lighter never worked, xenons lights, alloys

cruise control, front electric screen and a few more little handy things

but the faults on it, omg, better of with a roller! lol

now i got this wet carpet problem and its doing my knacker in!

as if i aint got enough grief with the lump and now this!

id like to meet the guy that designed this engine, love to go to town on him, and get my money back off him!

i want one of them old mercs ,their bomb proof, cant go wrong!the old tank ones!

safe comfortable and durable, wont be giving me no codes will it! lol

amount of times iv had the egr off, intercooler pipe splitting , starter going on me!

now the dmf is knocking, thanks a lot

got a monkey in money written all over it!

the damn thing wont budge from limp mode

car aint worth a toss 

feel like getting my baseball bat and going to town on it!

i was thinking, if i did that it would probably give me a code! p000000000000000000000000000000000000000 non starter lol

that is a bygone era!

my old man used to have the zepher , lotus cortina, granadas . 3litre s capris , he worked for fords at the dagenham works!

had a few granadas as well!

i was bought up in them cars, the days where as a kid you could stand up in the back lol

thing is they dont make motors like that anymore, they could take a hammering and keep going

simple to work on and quick fixes

now its just get shafted time on these so called environmentally friendly cars, nonsense!

next car im getting is gna be classic, at least wen it messes up il have half a chance!

forget the expense, im sure i will not lose more money that iv lost on this 2litre tdci! !Removed! engine!

thanks chris!


will have a butchers at the rear around the back etc and check the light clusters!


been doing my homework reading other threads on other sites.

some say it could be a seal around the bulkhead where the fresh air comes in through a vent

another saying door cards etc remove and reseal the plastic membrane inside.

another saying that remove carpet and plastic trim around the bottom drivers footwell where it meets the door 

remove some electric units underneath drivers side dash in the corner and behind that you will see some yellow filler which 

should be a bit discolored brownish, and thats where the water is coming through ,reseal with sealant and refit, end of water coming in!


what a joke and what a carry on, my only saving grace is the water hoover i got lol!

noticed as well because of the condensation in the car, windows and windscreen steamed up when i get in motor in the morning.

takes donkeys to clear the screen lol


since iv had motor pure grief and assache, tensioner egr manifold intercooler pipe twice, limp mode, injector issues, dmf knocking, and now got a p2263 code, been told to replace maf sensor, etc or the killer blow,, turbo replacement lol what a joke!

every problem has so many different answers and codes and grief!

never going to buy ford again in my life, even if someone offered me 1 on the house, go tell them to take a hike ,thanks but no thanks!

say what you like everyone,,jap motors are the best and most relaible!! more reliable than ford anyway!

there was a old saying in the 70s 80s FORD AND PROUD OF IT! lol lol lol 

that saying is extinct!!
