      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.

  3. fault codes p2002 & p2263

    thanks for relys tdci-peter checked the pipes today one is slightly larger diameter than the other so cant go on the wrong way, i did notice though when i pulled the pipe off engine side it was crusty!! and hard when i crushed it with my fingers a lot of white crusty powder came out not sure what that is? thought ie was blocked and would be sorted but unfortunatly not, ive got a mechanic comming out to have a look at it on saturday with a roer diagnostic so will get back to you with the outcome
  4. fault codes p2002 & p2263

    ok so fitted the old maf sensor back and no fault code for maf just the p2002 code still so will be taking the maff back yes its the two large pipes going to the inlet manifold!!! going to take it to a garage and get it diagnosed properly there is a company by me that dose the terraclean they have said they will do a free diagnostic then quote from the results no charge untill i want the work done, think this is the best way, i have checked the pipes to the dpf they seem to be ok but how will i know if they are the right way around? also i am getting small air bubbles in the fuel line is this normal was getting big bubbles befor changing the fuel filter but now they are verry small, one last thing shoukld the fuel system be presurised ie if i remove the fuel cap and push the flap inside the filler pipe it hisses as if its pressurisd!!! yes it was a private sale well it was a swap for my 06 reg civic thought i had a good deal so hope i can get it sorted without breaking the bank
