In Topic: Powershift Revs Up And Down And Other Problems

Sorry for delay in replying: been on vacation. The problem got worse. Car started to display 'Transmission Limited Function' after which only gears 1+3+5 would work or just 2+4+6. Switch off and on again and all gears worked though initial problems continued. Eventually had to have clutches replaced by Ford dealer. Cost £1200. That fixed problem (1) in original post and initially problems (2) + (3), but (2) + (3) came back. Then one day 'Transmission Limited Function' warning appeared and display said car was in gear 7!!! Car went back to dealer. It took the dealer two weeks to find out what was wrong. It turned out that when the clutch was replaced the speed sensor should have been replaced as well. It then took dealer a few weeks to get the part and fit. Dealer did this free of charge and gave me a free major service. This fixed (2) and (3). Issue (4) continued infrequently until I eventually worked out it was the cooling fan! I have no idea why the issue (4) tapping sound speeds up when the car speeds up because I would have thought the cooling fan would spin constantly, but it only occurs when the fan is on.

In Topic: Huge Difference Between Onboard Mpg And Reality

Just an update with the last two tank fills:


Total miles 636.2, computer average MPG 49.8, litres to fill up 68.14, actual MPG 42.4, difference 7.4 15%

Total miles 543.7, computer average MPG 50.1, litres to fill up 61.84, actual MPG 40.0, difference 10.1 20%


Is the difference between your real MPG and what the computer reports so large?
