  1. Update I switched them back to how the pipes were as it was showing 0.0 pressure and that threw a code took the egr blanking plate out reset codes and car is running perfect so happy days 🙂
  2. hmmmm thats intresting as i just took for a bit of a sprited drive and after a bit the fan was running and it seemed to have lost its zest 😊 so i just switched the pipes round so that may have been a mistake but will see what happens later but in a more exciting development i have sorted the vibration !!!!!! It was the front right main engine mount, i had put a cheap one from fleabay on a `Mapco` one and i wasnt ever really happy with the quality as it did look a bit rough so i got a genuine one although second hand from a S40 Volvo as the part numbers were the same and it cured it dash board doesnt vibrate and its quiet so just need to sort this underboost code i did check the hoses before when i replaced the intercooler as it had a lot of oil in it from the previous turbo that decided the commit suicide before i go the car.. thanks for the help appreciated
  3. Did a scan and got the following codes up P2458-21 and P0299-21, i have cleared both and still the same im thinking maybe i had the pressure sensor hoses the wrong way round although i just assumed it was measuring a diferential so wouldnt be that critical ? did a screen shot when idling
  4. Let me re run it and see if anything is lurking in the background and post it later on thanks for your help
  5. Hi yes it’s the 109bhp version was worried about the egr thought I’d give it a whirl did take to Ford for them to redo the egr set up used forscan but in the end tried them £85 pound later and no difference just thinking maybe the engine is a bit down o. Compression but it starts on the button every time
  6. Hi yes I’m noticing this refinement 😂😂😂 back to the car tho yes it’s the 16v unit and it’s had new glow plugs and refurbished injectors it seems to struggle on hills with three people on board have to use 3rd gear at about 3000rpm 😕 just fitted a egr blanking plate this morning let’s see how that works
  7. Just an update seems to be better once warmed up and if you drive gently it’s pretty quiet but as soon as you get it where the turbo boosts so to speak get real vibration 🧐
  8. Morning everyone i have recently replaced all the engine mounts, used a Febi one for the gearbox, Genuine ford for the rear one and a Mapco one from Ebay on the drivers side. so when the car is idling the dashboard vibrates the part in the centre with the cubby hole. when i accelerate it is loud and get harshness between 2400rpm and 3000 rpm but when cruising seems ok so bit stuck. Been underneath and check the exhaust isnt touching anywhere. Has had new clutch and DMF last month. The car was bought as a non runner so dont know what these are like i drive a Scirocco diesel which doesnt vibrate anywhere like this does. Also when driving i get vibration in the steering wheel not like balancing but just low level that makes your hands tingle any help would be super also if anyone else has a vibrating dash on idle that would help 🙂 thanks in advance
  9. Thought I’d let you all know I found the problem the turbo was goosed I took it apart and noticed all the exhaust fins were gone 🙄 could be why it wasn’t going that well very odd but a new turbo just fitted and working sweet as a nut
  10. update went out and took a screen shot of the readings also have a live file from forscan if anyone wants to view and make any useful suggestions be really appreciated. So far have replaced the fuel pump fuel pressure sensor on the fuel rail MAF MAP Injectors Cam sensor rebuilt the top end, refurbished the Turbo the most annoying thing is sometimes its fine other times its rubbish and there is no common denominator the only things ive noticed are sometimes if your braking hard it will pick up and go and sometimes seems to be turning to the right but not all the time did think maybe damage to the loom but nothing is logged in the PCM memory
  11. Hi everyone well been to Ford today they recalibrated the egr and pcm and well made no change apart from the car failed to start due to a faulty cam sensor so I fitted that and the car runs but same so bit bullet and fitted a new MAF which shows a high air flow ? Then it wouldn’t go over 200rpm when I stopped the cooling fan was running the. When I got back in the car and drove off it ran sweet as a nut loads of power and revs over 4500rpm 🤷🏻‍♂️ Really fed up with this car if I’m honest thinking maybe the intercooler is blocked or got a lot of oil in it and maybe that’s causing the problems or maybe the turbo. Will do a screen shot of settings when cold and the. When the cars warmed up
  12. Ah hi everyone well very odd booked the Car in with our local ford dealer for a EGR Calibration and Software Update to the PCM if required this was going to be £95. Anyway was sat thinking and when i plug the MAF in it ran rougher even tho when it was unplugged it was running ok. Anyway i had a spare MAF (Like you do) and swapped these over and cleared the fault the car now runs fine ??????? I have attached a screen shot from ForScan for anyone who can see a difference.
  13. Hey yes sorry i checked an its not throwing any fault codes 😞 will check the air temp but pretty sure its ok. Will do a data log in the morning. Do you think the EGR values look ok ? i was looking at a similar story on this site and the guy had got a genuine ford EGR Valve and had it calibrated by them and posted the attached showing the same values at idle and my EGR seem different. The car had a new Valeo unit fitted as the other was damaged. Charlie
  14. Hi Everyone first post, i have a 2010 Mk1 Ford CMax 1.6 TDCI which i bought as a project and so far have had to replace 5 Valves. 2 Pistons, Rebuild the Turbo, Replace the Injectors and Pump. Now the car is running fine start and idles nice however when i drive it it has no boost !!!!! I have replaced the EGR and rest with Forscan but i dont think it has learnt the values and readling i need to get it done by Ford IDS. If i unplug the MAF then the car drives ok and boosts nicely its very odd and rather irritating. I have attached a screen shot from ForScan as the car currently is running. Any advice welcome.
