    Rotten ac

    I would change the pollen filter if the smell persists.
  2. Also with 2 wheels just on the curb. When it was very hot earlier in the week I noticed water dripping just below where the front wing meets the sill on the drivers side on my Mk2. Don’t generally notice it dripping when parked on the flat though.
  3. Haha.. you’ve got the sexy Chrome one, you don’t see many of those!
  4. Did anyone ever see that lad again? 😄
  5. Find an experienced expert at remapping Fords. Someone who’s capable of writing their own maps rather than just uploading a generic remap file. If it was a BMW I’d recommend Emaps or BW Chiptune to sort this out for you, but I’m not up on the Ford tuning.
  6. Best I could find, but I find it generally covers the things I’ve had to look up about my UK car still.

  8. Which remap company did you use? A decent tuner should be able to flash the car back to stock first if it’s already been remapped before.
  9. Check the coolant isn’t a funny colour to begin with.
  10. On My 2007 car it goes off roughly 20 minutes after locking it.
  11. Good luck .. hope it doesn’t cost too much.
  12. You really need someone to inspect the DPF and see if it’s still intact. If it’s intact and not removed the garage could try forcing a regen on the car since you’ve only had the remap a few weeks, but as said above it might be already past the point of no return now for that and could require removing and cleaning properly.
  13. Agree, cut your losses with the rouge tuner and take it to someone who knows what they’re doing. They should be able to put the car back to standard and run diagnostics to see if there’s any other problems with the car that could be causing high emissions or if it’s had the DPF intervals removed etc. If all is ok they should then be able to tune it properly so it passes an MOT 😉
