In Topic: Calling All 1.8 Tdci Owners (Urgent!)

Thanks again John. I sent an email to Pendragon (who i believe 'own' Evans Halshaw) on Tuesday night, explaining the issues i was having and that the dealership were refusing to make any repairs.


Although i've not heard anything back from them, i called EH yesterday to explain that i'm working away and couldn't collect the car until Friday afternoon. Very unexpectedly, they came back to me and said that they have another part on order which is due to be delivered and fitted to the car today.. The delay in me collecting the car is not a problem as it'll give them chance to 'run it and make sure everything's ok.. If there's any problems they'll ring me back'. As i was at work i couldnt question this any further, so i'm very curious as to what's now going on. I'm guessing they'll give me some paperwork to show what repairs are been made when i pick it up and wonder if this sudden repair has anything to do with that email i sent?

Cheers John, would be great if you could. The garage in question is Evans Halshaw in Boro, i left the car with them last night due to various issues and one of them been that i keep loosing the throttle. Yesterday they told me not to drive the car as they would be held responsible if it happens again and something happens, but today they reckon there is no fault despite me mentioning the TPS being a possibility. Apparently what i've read online through forums etc and had confirmed with Ford is not good enough unless they diagnose it themselves and because it's not a constant issue i'm lost with what to do next.


I don't know what journeys the car did before, but with me it is going from Middlesbrough to Leeds and back everyday, so 95% of it's time is now on dual carriageways in busy traffic. With that in mind and the fact that It's already happened twice and i'm not prepared to pick the car up until something has been done.. If anyone has any ideas what i can do/who i can speak to, any advice would be great!

Thanks for replying guys!


So, Newbie and Karlos.. are your accelerators very 'sensitive' to? I've tried again this morning - car idles at 750rpm, apply the tiniest amount of pressure and it's up to 1,500ish+ rpm..

aye, but this is literally crawling along as i leave the space at work and get to a barrier..set off, once just started moving I let foot off pedal and it starts kangaroo'ing. I've just been back out and got the revs to about 1,100, managed to hold there for a second and without moving foot the revs were up and down +/- 250ish revs..

I've just noticed as well, that if you drive along for a short distance in 1st at low speed where there isn't enough of a run up to get in 2nd, the car 'kangaroo's'.. I've been reading a few topics on here about the actual pedal itself and replacing it cures similar issues, do you think this is the problem i'm having?
