  2. Hello guys. My name is Gonçalo (hard to pronounce, I know [emoji23]), I’m from Portugal and I’m a Fiesta MK8 ST-Line Ecoboost owner. I have it for half an year and I’m completely in love! Regards
  3. I didn't, but then it seems to vary. If you use the files I used, the only thing you might get is a message every time you boot up saying installation in progress. This message can be ignored safely. I didn't get this at all with my install, and others have gotten rid of it by reinstalling.
  4. Sounds like you're sorted then, Bob😀 Hope it helps the knee!
  5. No it doesn't measure the load on the app it just shows your current (or last checked) tyre pressures for each corner then underneath says 30 Fronts 26 rears as recommended pressures.
  6. We don't know the history of the car (have you had it from new, serviced at Ford etc) but whatever only Ford are going to authorize a repair/replacement turbo as appropriate. You seem to have had a reasonable response from CRC so far so I would pursue that line, though a dealer would have to be involved to carry out any work. Ford have issued a service bulletin on this issue (TSB 16-2088 according to others on this thread.)
  7. I'm going to be installing a double din unit at present its 1.5 din as its 2006. Does any one know if I was to buy a 56 facia do I just a simple replacement or do you think more hassle than worth. An just cutting it to fit 2 photos to show size difference. Sent from my SM-N975F using Tapatalk
  8. I have the same issue but mine is about 7mph out according to when I compare it with the speed test.
  9. Was playing batman arkham knight yesterday. Was mainly doing the riddler side quests. Woke up and saw this 😂. Coincidence or not?
  10. Today
  11. If you're leaking that much fuel, it must be visible on the floor under the car surely!? There's no chance of 64mpg in that car, but 45mpg is a more reasonable average. Maybe a daft question but was the tank definitely full the first time? Sometimes the easyfuel system can make the pump click off too soon, but you would have noticed the fuel gauge wasn't at max if that was the case!
  12. I had this some years ago on two separate Fords, accelerator position sensor was at fault.
  13. Thanks for the offer, Ted...I'm 200 miles away though if your location on here is still correct! What do you use for that btw? Carista dongle? I've been after something to use with the VAGDPF app as I currently have all diags on laptop which can be a pain. I must admit, the cheap VCDS has been invaluable so far though, only bought it to activate cruise on the A3 last year, but since then it's done plenty of fault reads and added things like auto-locking on the Golf. Plus swapping an entire gateway module & adding cruise on a neighbours Mk5...which I was a bit worried about lol! Made an interesting discovery yesterday though...I couldn't hear the fuel pump prime at all... First time I got in and immediately realised I always have the fans and stereo come on with ignition so wouldn't have heard it normally. But switched those off when I parked...came back an hour later, switched the ignition on, and still no pump whine! 😮 Either it's very well soundproofed, or it holds enough pressure not to need priming until it's cranked. Either way, I'll try VCDS on it as that seems to be the generally approved way. As said earlier, I'll need to use VCDS to reset the longlife service interval as well (can only reset standard time & distance through dash) so I'll need to take the laptop out anyway.
  14. Hi guys, Until recently I have been driving Volvo and accessed parts from a company (Skandix) who had a downloadable catalogue dedicated to each model, these catalogues had every part for the car with the manufacturers part numbers. Granted this company wasn't the cheapest on the market but they also weren't Volvo prices. What I'm looking for now is a similar company that provides the same thing but for Ford. Anybody got any links?
  15. That's ok, the OP has managed to build a time machine and bring back a Mk5 Focus.
  16. I agree. No car is perfect but the more I drive my MK4 the more I'm impressed with it.
  17. Thanks for the posts guys, sorry for not responding quicker. Yea, shockingly enough the car has yet to cause me any trouble ever since. Although I can just... feel it... you know? It's coming! 😅 Any time now! 😅 There is however an odd noise from the passenger side, possibly suspension. It sometimes makes a slight shingle noise when going over speed humps. Sounds like a brace is a little loose and makes a click. I've also observed that the gearbox makes a clicking noise when you put it into reverse, have been told this is the gearbox mount that needs replacing. At this point it would make sense to replace the chassis, and buy some new 19 plates to match. Blah 😄
  18. I drain mine out and pop in a couple of bottles of kettle descaler, press the buttton for a few seconds, front and rear, slosh loads of water on the paint work straight`away, again leave to stand for a few minutes, purge the tank empty using short presses on front and rear buttons make sure to slosh the paintwork well with clean tap water. Refill tank with ready mixed screenwash fluid and carry on with life.
  19. On the RS you select neutral, undo the clip on the cable, shift to 4th, ensure the selector mechanism is mid-way (Neutral), push clip home.
  20. Is there any gas pressure when the dipstick is pulled out or the oil cap removed, you may have excessive blow by or a defective PCV system pushing the stick out with excess crank case pressure
  21. Yesterday
  22. Tbh I'd be more concerned if there was little or no condensation. Long live the car [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
  23. Could be an intermittent clutch pedal sensor. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
  24. Hi, Thought I'd update you all on the outcome. Had a scan done and it was showing a network issue, basically an electrical fuse, joint, earth, connection was faulty somewhere on the car. The guy said it would mean going through every wire to try find the issue. When he went I looked at the sensor connections and fuses in the engine bay, cleaning and disconnecting and reconnecting each one. The fault went and it started! So, it was fixed. Unfortunately a couple of times after that the same fault occured, engine fault light came on and it cut out. I wiggled the wires and connections again and fault went! To solve the problem, I in turn when the fault appeared, moved each connector one at a time until fault went and I narrowed it down to the fuel return pipe sensor that is fastened underneath the inlet manifold, still don't know the purpose of it? I examined the connector and wires and discovered that both the wires had rubbed through the covering and were bare wires causing it to intermittently short together. I've cut wires, put in a connector and wrapped in insulation tape and it all seems fine now. At the same time I removed the 2 other sensors on the inlet manifold as they were covered in gunk and the car seems a lot smoother runner than before 👍
