  1. Hi, I have a 2007 2.0 tdci duratorq mk3 and I recently started having problems with the glow plug light flashing and the car would only run in limp mode but if I ran it for a few hundred yards, switched it off and restarted it, it was fine for the rest of the day. Then I had a starting problem, the dials went berserk, all the warning lights flashed on and off, and it would not crank over, so I put the battery on charge and after an hour it started but still with flashing glow plug light. I spoke to a mechanic and he said the fault was most likely the EGR valve so I bought a new one, (the one on the car was pretty gunged up) but still the same fault plus it now has started to smoke from the exhaust really badly. has anyone any ideas please. Thanks.
  2. I recently had a starting issue where the rev counter, speedo and fuel gauge went berserk and the engine would not turn over, so after a bit of research I decided to charge the battery and fit a new ignition switch. That cured the starting issue but my Sony CD player will only work with the ignition off. Has anyone any advice on this issue. Thanks, wildpunto.
