  1. The van is stunning and like new! I purchased the privately and the bloke I got it from owned it for 3.5 years and never had any problems and it is fully serviced. Like I said at the beginning I only had it looked at because I have never known that much pressure in a coolant tank on a cold engine, other than that there was no other signs, no milky oil no over heating no smoke or steam from the exhaust and drove fantastic!
  2. No I’m just fed up with not having the van back so I thought maybe throw a turbo at it. They had 2 codes come up when they scanned it and I will get them Monday when they are open. Think 1 of the codes meant stuck actuator but apparently it’s not stuck. The van started and drove and ticked over lovely before it went in but the high pressure in the coolant tank needed investigating and when they done the head work they phoned me and said it looks like someone has already been in there and done a poor job on the head. My question is with such low mileage why has it been done already? Now it’s been done properly could it be done to a faulty turbo all along.
  3. So shall I tell them to hold fire on the turbo? Just check what you have all stated? Sorry I’m not clued up on engines.
  4. Just phoned fords to confirm and it’s an 1.6 8v DV6
  5. I believe it’s 16v that’s what it states on the totalcarcheck report.
  6. This is the van & engine it’s like brand new in every way. I have only had the van 2 weeks then realised the coolant did not look clean like my mates one
  7. I have spoken to the garage today and asked them to fit a new Garrett turbo and go from there! ***** van the bill is already at £1800. The Machanic has said it might be the egr too but I have left it as change the turbo first. This van has only covered 54,000 miles I am totally gobsmacked on how this Diesel engine has gone to ***** already. Apparently it’s the 1.6 DV6 engine and they eat turbos if you don’t have the oil changed every 6-8 thousand miles and remove the mesh filter out of the Banjo bolt.
  8. They finished the work nearly 3 weeks ago but they are struggling with the overboosting as they have gone over there work again and again and keep test driving it now. Do you think I should throw a new turbo at it?
  9. Hi all, I recently posted on here but not had much help so I will try and keep this as short as I can. I purchased a 2014 Transit Connect Ltd with 54,000 and full service history. After buying the van I noticed the coolant tank dirty and low on coolant, when I opened the coolant bottle there was a huge amount of pressure released and the coolant would bubble up to the max line on a cold engine. The van started and drove lovely no rough idle no overheating and no smoke whatsoever but wanted to get it checked out so I took it to fords and they said possible head gasket failure! I then took it to a specialist for a 2nd opinion and they too said head gasket failure. I have the job to these guys and 7 weeks later they still have the van. This is what they have done so far: new head gasket skimmed head engine flush new cam belt & water pump Oil change and oil filter fuel filter All the new parts are genuine. They called me yesterday to say the van is going into limp mode due to an over boost and need more investigating to see what the problem is. Do any of you guys have any ideas as I’m fighting a loosing battle now.
  10. Quick update my van has been with a Ford specialist for 7 weeks now and they have replaced the head gasket and skimmed the head, new water pump, cam belt, fuel filter but now they can’t resolve an overboosting issue which puts the van straight into limp mode and the van never had this problem when it went in. Can anyone help? It’s a 2014 transit connect Ltd 115bhp covered only 54,000.
  11. Thank you for your reply. I took it to Ford and they said possible head gasket failure and wanted £600 just to open it up and check! I am taking it to another garage Wednesday for them to check. I will keep everyone posted soon as I know.
  12. Hi all could somebody help me I have just purchased a 2014 Transit Connect ltd with 52,000 on the clock and full service history. I noticed the water level on min today and the engine was cold so I opened the expansion tank lid and there was a lot of pressure in it and then the water level bubbled up and came back up to max. There is black soot mixed in with the coolant too. There is no cream or water in the oil it does not overheat at all and drives fantastic?? Could it be my thermostat?
