P2008 Code Help Please

04 September 2014 - 09:52 PM

Hi all really hoping for some help with this. I have my eml on at the moment and I have read the code as P2008 on reader. It is the inlet manifold control valve that is faulty apparently. The car is sluggish too so I know there is Deffo something wrong. What I want to know is can this be fixed by myself or is it a garage job? I'd like to know where the part is that needs fixing and if when I try and fix it will I need many parts etc. Hoping someone has had similar problem or if someone can advise please. I know there are lots of great mechanical minded people on here so please help. I would rather give it a go myself if I can so all help appreciated. Lee

Squelching Noise From Front

20 May 2014 - 12:07 PM

Hi all. For some time now I have been hearing a strange noise from the engine area at different times. It's really hard to explain what it sounds like but it does it when I'm sat and then set off. As the title says it sounds like a squelch but it's really strange. It does it too when I'm sat aNd turn the wheel slightly but don't know if it's related to steering. Does anyone have any ideas or is it like a steering pump noise that is on other focus's. Hopefully someone else will know what I mean and be able to advise.


Comfort Standard Or Sport

05 April 2014 - 04:57 PM

Hi guys. I have just this week decided to change the setting for steering to comfort after having it set between standard or sport. I have to admit I actually prefer it. Never thought I would but it actually feels a lot nicer to drive in comfort. Living in Sheffield where the roads are like a mine field for pot holes and bumps it feels nicer to drive and doesn't pull when hitting bumps.

So anyone else have any preferences. Just thought I'd see what the consensus is from everyone else and which setting they use.


Please Help

27 March 2014 - 10:20 AM

Hi. I have just bought an in car camera that slots over rear view mirror. Quite impressed but a tad bigger than the original one. It comes with a car. Harder for power which I want to change to maybe hard wire in somewhere. Mainly because I have the two 12v sockets which have power Constantly to them and I want it to be easier to just start recording when I turn the car on.

So has anyone got any ideas maybe some easily accessed wires that are in front of car somewhere I can splice to or how to convert the power sockets maybe

Any help appreciated


Led Badge Fitted.

01 February 2014 - 05:41 PM

Finally received my badge light for rear of car. So this morning in the freezing cold wind I decided to go and fit it.
I followed the guide from pree on here so thanks pree. However I didn't have a socket set long enough to undo the bolts to remove the trim so instead drilled a small hole to feed the wires into the boot behind the badge and filled it well with clear silicone to prevent any water getting through. Overall it took just over an hour start to finish and below is the finished project now it has turned dark. I absolutely love how it looks hope you do too.
