    What is E10 Petrol and Can My Car Run It?

    What is E10 fuel and why is it being introduced? The reason E10 fuel has been introduced as the standard grade fuel at forecourts across the country is to try and reduce carbon dioxide emissions. This fuel is made up on 90% regular unleaded petrol and 10% ethanol. Current petrol grades in the UK (E5) contain up to 5% ethanol, with the rest being regular unleaded petrol. The Government claims that the introduction of E10 petrol at UK forecourts could cut transport CO2 emissions by 750,000 ton

    Fuel Crisis - and is it improving?

    So what's behind the crisis? The key issue is there aren't enough drivers to supply petrol. There's an estimated shortage of more than 100,000 HGV drivers and petrol is only the latest industry to be hit. The lack of drivers has caused problems for a range of industries - from supermarkets to fast food chains. Fuel tanker drivers need additional safety qualifications on top of their HGV licence to be able to transport chemicals such as petrol. How did the petrol shortage start? La

  • 2008 Focus 1.6 tdci - P0087 - engine malfunction/limp mode

    Hi everyone, So I’m experiencing the ominous P0087 (ominous as it seems so hard to pin down) and am hoping for a bit of advice on where to go next. I’ve got a Mk2 2008 Focus 1.6 tdci titanium 109bhp which I’ve owned for almost 10 years.  I’ll try give as much history and background as possible. In all honesty for a few years now the yellow engine management light has been intermittently appearing. When it’s not on the car runs fine,  when it shows it seems to run a little rough. O

    Hello!

    Hi all, my name is Raj and I drive a 2019 Focus Wagon 1.0 125 Titanium Ecoboost and the wife has a 2015 1.0 125 Ecoboost Fiesta Titanium X.  Both cracking cars.  My parents used to work for Vauxhall so we always had Vauxhalls in the family, until our Corsa died and replaced it with a Fiesta.  Converted to Fords ever since! Previous Fords are:   2004 Ghia 1.6 Auto Fiesta 2007 2.5T Smax Titanium 2016 2.0 240hp Ecoboost Smax Titanium Sport Auto 2014 1.0 Ecoboost 125 Gr

    Door sill seal

    Hi, the recent icy weather has meant that the doors have ripped the door sill seal off and bent it (near side). It runs the whole length of the sill behind the doors when closed. I am struggling to find the part for sale, although I can find plenty of clips! Does anyone know where I can buy one or what the part number is?  Thanks Pete

    • Hi everyone, So I’m experiencing the ominous P0087 (ominous as it seems so hard to pin down) and am hoping for a bit of advice on where to go next. I’ve got a Mk2 2008 Focus 1.6 tdci titanium 109bhp which I’ve owned for almost 10 years.  I’ll try give as much history and background as possible. In all honesty for a few years now the yellow engine management light has been intermittently appearing. When it’s not on the car runs fine,  when it shows it seems to run a little rough. Occasionally stalls when pulling away from stationary.  I’ve had it looked over, serviced, P0087 code cleared and nothing more. I’ve lived with it. In the last couple of months it’s got a bit worse. The engine management light has been on more than it’s been off, and on a couple of occasions the car has stalled when moving. On two occasions an engine malfunction warning has popped up and the car has put itself into limp mode.  Off and on doesn’t necessarily clear this immediately, but it would ultimately disappear and go back to intermittent engine management light only. I took it into my usual garage (and mate) who replaced the air and fuel filters and cleared the code down. But the intermittent engine management light reappeared within a day or two. He recommended I take the car to a diesel specialist. So I booked in at the best known diesel garage in my area who ran some tests and suggested the following: Plan A (most likely) - fuel pump solenoid - £350ish Plan B - wiring loom - £1200ish I had the solenoid changed and all seemed well for about 48 hours. I think he mentioned he’d also secured the wiring loom and possibly replaced the terminals at either end. Since then the symptoms have shifted but it’s still not resolved.  The engine management light hasn’t re-appeared since the solenoid was replaced, but the engine malfunction accompanied by limp mode now occurs on pretty much every journey. Sometimes as soon as I start up, sometimes 10 mins into the journey. During the rare moments it’s not showing the error it feels like the car is running fine. Although a regular feature is that the car smells ‘fumey’ when running, this has been the case for a while and since before this repair.  I know there are common issues with leaky injectors on this engine and I’ve had to had no.3 resealed several times.  I appreciate it’s hard to advise remotely but would be grateful for any pointers. Ideally I’d like to avoid the expensive wiring loom fix as there’s no guarantee it will resolve the issue. However I’d consider it if it could somehow be confirmed to be the root cause, when balanced against the cost of a newer replacement. Is there any way of pinning it down? I’m interested that the symptoms have changed since having the solenoid replaced and wondering if this points anywhere? Ive tried reading up online and it seems this fault code can be caused by so many different things - HPFP, FPR, leaky injectors, wiring, bad battery. Don’t want to start chucking money down a rabbit hole, but open to thoughts, ideas and previous experience. TIA  
    • 2009 Mazda 1.6 diesel the same as the ford focus. For anybody trying to figure out as to why they are getting the P024F Charge Air Cooler Bypass Position Sensor A Circuit High and are not having any luck in trying to solve the problem as i was even after replacing the valve even after inspecting the old one and a lot on people pointing it out to the throttle body motor i seemed to have found out the hard way and i will try to explain. It started of to the fact that the car was sent to Mazda to get  the pat fluid tank replaced and they had done that but they must have wiped all the error codes out of the car and when it was being driven out the car was running rough and the engine light came back on then they started to ask question about when was the last time the car had been serviced and it was said to them that the car was running perfect before it came in and they took it back in and looked like they wiped the error codes again but never told us that there was other errors on it so i had purchased my own obd scanner and it reviled that there was a lot more errors on it than Mazda were saying. When i done the scan i was getting errors codes for MAF sensor, Frozen egr valve, and Charge Air Cooler Bypass Position Sensor A Circuit High. I first started of by replacing the MAF sensor which got rid of that error and then i got a replacement egr valve an oem one and i installed that into the car but i still had errors in the car and booked it in with Mazda to get the EGR programed into the car but the guys in Mazda said that they done that but never told me that there was still errors on the car and the car was running rough and after paying them for that they didnt even tell me that the there was still the error code of p024f still showing up on the car. So i ended up getting another throttle body for the car and after installing it in the car i was still getting the p024f error. I was messing around between that and the EGR valve and low and behold i discovered that the EGR valve was was the culprit in causing the p024f error code. How i found out was that i was pluging out sensors on the car and i was deleting the error codes and waiting to see what codes was going to be thrown up  and i discovered that when the EGR valve was plugged out i would only get P0405 EGR Sensor A Circuit Low but when i plugged it back in i would get p1412, p0404 and p024f. So i then got the old EGR valve just the motor part just to test my theory ( and the motor was tight to turn that's why i was replacing) so i installed it in the car and turned it to the closed position and all of a sudden the codes started to appear. So then i turned the car of and i set it to the open position and it only came up with p0404 after wiping the codes and tried it a few times and the same code kept appearing but done the same again in the closed position and the p0404 and p024f error codes started to appear so i then connected the new one back up and wiped the codes and they  kept coming back on so i disconnected the EGR valve and drove around for the day and the only error code that came up was the p0404. At the moment i am waiting for a new EGR valve to arrive but i am not getting the oem one i am getting the original valeo EGR valve and i am hoping either that one was either faulty or not compatible with the car even thought they say it is but i hope this will help someone out with the p024f error as everyone says throttle body but not one thing mention about the EGR trowing up the error code p024f.   Hopefully this will help some people solve there error p024f code and maybe it will save them money as i say the dealer for Mazda Ireland where no help at all but quick to take my money and no answers.    
    • Hey, haven't got round to it yet, still don't have the sealant so need to get that, as it's a minor leak I'm dealing with I haven't rushed lol, I think it should be an easy job though 👍
