In Topic: Acceleration Noise

I have mate, this is whats really confusing me. I've taken the intercooler off and checked the hoses and even had turbo hose off but no signs of any leaks. I am getting quite a lot of oily splats in my engine bay on the rhs of the engine, theres even oily marks on the heat/noise shielding under the bonnet. I've attached some images which give a better idea. I don't know if this is another issue or the result of the noise.

The red area is where the oily splats are present. I've checked the oil level and its been at a constant level for the past 6 months so I'm not loosing any oil. I took the third image after I had cleaned the area to try and find any leaks.

 

 


In Topic: Focus Mk1 Starting Problems

Ello mate, my car had really big starting issues, but mainly when it was cold, so I changed the battery to a bigger cc (cold cranking) rate and that seemed to do the trick. Not sure if this is the same problem, but have you checked your battery?

In Topic: Egr Blanked But Engine Doesn't Like It

13 April 2014 - 07:34 PM

 I've blanked my egr off (that sounds so wrong  :D ) and I didn't have any warning lights at all. The blanking plate that I used was about 5mm thick. I actually removed the egr pipe and gave it a !Removed! good clean Though it might be different on your car, mines a 2002 mk 1.5 1.8 tdci.
