      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Thanks for the info don't really have any tools or that cable so time to call in a few favours from friends and family :) I will start at the beginning of the list. Not sure about euro 3 or 4 how do you tell the difference? but it is a late 04 TDCI duratorq 130 6 speed with exposed injectors and rail. the EGR valve is at the front of the engine near the radiator and windscreen reservoir. The EGR also has a small black hose with a 90 degree bend going to 2 sensors. It has done 140k on original injectors and most other original parts tho? Cheers
  2. Hi, I have the very same problem. A little more info as to what mine is doing. Only get smoke when the engine is first started when cold and the outside temp is cold. No smoke on hot days or when the car has been run for awhile. Again when cold and first start the engine will splutter and try to stall at around 1500 - 1800 rpm (like the engine is over fueling or starving) not sure which. This happens in any gear when under load or when sat in neutral with revs. As before the symptoms go or are harder to notice when the car is warm and has been run for awhile. Just had diagnostic on it today and still no fault codes showing also never had a dash light shoe. Only thing the garage came up with was the EGR as the reading on the diag tool was 0 on idle and did not change when he gave some revs. Very lost and reluctant to throw more money on garage maybes any help or advice would be most welcomed. Cheers
