Retarded/advance Injection Timing

23 July 2014 - 06:24 AM

Hi guys.

Can someone tell me the symptoms of retarded or advanced timing?
I think I'm suffering with retarded timing as any load on the engine, however small results in really loud diesel clatter.
People are turning around in the street as I drive past it's that noisy! :(
Car starts fine and runs ok but have just had it mapped two months ago and I'm certain it's since then that it has started!

Can anyone advise on this please?


Obd2 Reader No Longer Working?

05 July 2014 - 09:57 AM


I just wondered if the OBD port is powered by a fuse?
My OBD2 reader which has always worked will no longer connect to the port.
There are 3 lights which usually come on once it is attached, specifically the green one which tells you there is power there but it no longer illuminates.
I bought another identical reader with them being so cheap but it gives the same result, no power to reader?

Is there a fuse and if so, where would it be located?

Thanks guys.


Fitting A New Induction Hose. Focus 2009 Tdci

01 July 2014 - 01:28 PM

Hi guys.

I discovered a large split in my induction hose last week. :-(
Anyway, my new (genuine Ford) hose has arrived and I just wondered if there is anything I should be aware of before fitting it. There looks to be a plastic cylinder which seems to have to twist into position at the turbo side??

Any tips guys or will this be very straightforward.



Code P2463 Dpf Filter Restriction - Soot Accumulation High

24 June 2014 - 03:51 PM

Hi guys.

Funny one this.
I have the the yellow EML on two days ago and as my bluetooth code reader no longer connects to the ECU, I've had to take it to a friend who has a snap-on diagnosis machine.
It came out with code P2463 Filter Restriction - Soot Accumulation High (95%)
His machine would not clear the code??

Thing is, my DPF has been removed and ECU remapped so any thoughts as to why this code has come up??
Engine runs fine, no loss of power or restrictions.


Help With Sourcing A New Turbo Air Feed Pipe.

22 June 2014 - 08:16 AM

Hi guys.

I noticed a slight hissing sound coming from around the airbox so I did a bit of fiddling and found a split in the pipe that leads from the airbox to the inlet (don't know the technical term for this ribbed pipe)?

Anyway, need to source a new one, can anyone recommend a trusted seller on ebay where I can get a replacement?
I would like a silicon replacement as opposed to the original ribbed pipe if that's possible?

My car is 2009 (59) 1.6 TDCI FYI.

Just had DPF removal and remap and think that it was either damaged whilst they were removing DPF or the increased boost pressure has maybe damaged an already weak link??

Thanks in advance
