In Topic: diesel running lumpy over 3000rpm

23 December 2009 - 06:09 PM

Could be fuel pump on its way out or injectors. 3krpm in a diesel is very hard driving. I normally aim to change up by 2000-2500 rpm, dont forget the TDDi "redlines" at just over 4000rpm

had a freind check my car with a fault reader comes up with P0149 -fuel timing error car running very bad will not rev and a lot of blue white smoke unburnt fuel i was told i got a new timing belt fitted about a month ago is this any thing to do with it not loosing water or oil hope some one can help thanks mike

Probably the tensioners faulty. If the noise has only developed since it was changed, chances are thats where the fault lies.

thanks for the reply but they tried a new tensioner and noise still there some one said that it might be an air pipe to the turbo that they may have damaged they are going to have a look

In Topic: fan running all the time

Have you checked the coolant level, because my Focus' fan kept coming on with no irregular temperature gauge, but the I checked the coolant level and it was low. I've just had the Thermostat Housing replaced, as this is where the leak was.
Just an idea?

hi yes coolant level fine seems to be ok

This happened on my old 51 plate focus.
Disconnect signal wire for air con from behind heater fan switch.
This will disable auto switch-on of air con when demisting at a fast speed but air con will still operate with air con switch.

is it easy to get into the back of the switch thanks mike
