You'll probably need a new set of Discs now too depending how long you have been driving it with this grinding noise.

In Topic: Broken Key Fob?

You should be able to buy a 2nd hand key fob, sync it to the car yourself and swap over the key blade and immobiliser chip.

Easy to do but there should be a guide on here somewhere to help you.

In Topic: Ford Smax 1.8 Problems

The guy never actually said if it's petrol or diesel?


True, but it says under his username he has an Smax 1.8 TDCI :)

Take it back to the garage and ask them to check their work, sounds like it could be a split or loose boost hose.

Can you hear a 'whooshing' or 'hissing' sound while driving the car on boost?

Did they charge you for changing the spark plugs on a 1.8 Diesel? It doesnt have any is all im saying, so check if they changed spark plugs or glow plugs.

As James says, blank off the EGR Valve as it causes so many problems, there is a guide on here somewhere i believe.
