The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  7. Hi my daughter has a ford focus 1.6 tdci 58 plate. She has been complaining of a lot of black smoke from exhaust when accelerating so i plugged it in to a basic obd 2 scanner connected to my phone using the torque app. I did this originally 2 weeks ago or so and generated lots of codes which i cleared my thought was id recheck in a couple of weeks to see what came back. The code there this time was P0299 OBD error code i had a look at this link http://www.obd-codes.com/p0299 I was just wondering if you guys or girls maybe know what to check first or is it worth getting some specific ford software to pin point the problem? I have looked for split hoses etc air leeks but cant hear or see anything? If anyone can point me in the right direction i would be grateful it is a pain trying to catch her in though lol. Thanks Dave.
