  11. New Member After Some Help Please

    Hello The common rail should be on the front of the engine as you stand infront of the car take engine cover off it is a black round tube with 4 pipes coming off it to the middle of the engine The engine is one big square if your engine has a slim middle part going down the centre it might be a tddi. Not a tdci if its a tddi you don't have a rail so your chip won't work Do a google search for tdci image and see if yours is the same Hope this helps a bit John
  12. Hi all As a update I changed my plugs and all is working again now Thanks a lot for all your help John
  13. Hi Thanks for your replys it all sound true and good but my car did work and Haynes engine fuse box F8 and ford have it as a 60 amp slow blow so it is right I have taken them all out and rail off Tested each plug on battery with 20 amp fuse and all work no problem But am I right in saying if they are all in and I put my 20 amp wire on the rail the fuse should not blow but the plugs won't work because they don't have enoght amps to work I have brought a new glow plug to test it's ohms and that is 0.8 So does any one know how to test these plugs And where are all the engine earth straps so I can check them Thanks a lot John
  14. Hi Thanks very much for the diagram it's very good but I have Haynes I needed ford diagram as Haynes is a typical and not the same But thanks for that I have tested resistance on plugs with multimeter Continuity test and it comes up 0.6 ohms that's each plug out the engine I have put them back in and put rail on but took the poss wire off rail and put fuse back in And it has not blown so it is the rail I have used a wire with 20 amp fuse and put from poss Of battery and put it to the rail and it pops the fuse So some where its going to ground How can I test each plug as they all glow nice when each one is put to the battery Thanks a lot for your help John
