    Fiesta MK7 1.4 TDCI mpg

    Found this on another site, hopefully it's right to test injectors, then I'll just need to find out how to see actual Vs requested fuel pressure. 1. Run & connect, go to Dashboard section 2. Double click on a dashboard or press Setup button, PIDS selection dialog will be opened. Select ICU module. Select PIDs CYL1_RATIO, CYL2_RATIO, CYL3_RATIO, CYL4_RATIO and click OK. 3. Run the engine, wait until engine speed is stabilized at idle. 4. Click Start button and monitor

    Fiesta MK7 1.4 TDCI mpg

    Had another go on forscan the other day but couldn't see how to get requested fuel pressure vs actual fuel pressure or the injector corrections. Fuel filter is definitely on the to do list but I wanted to check it before & after to see any improvements.

    Is there a guide on how to check live data? What sort of ranges am I looking for?

    No faults found with forscan, would injectors or fuel filter show on forscan though? I'll go for the filter first due to the mileage and the fact I've never changed it .

    I've seen people do it with a brake bleeding kit, do you have a link to a primer?

    When I removed it to clean the egr valve I had to lend a syphon pump to get it started again (3 days later) as ford decided not to put the hand primer on the MK7 for some reason.

    I've never changed it but after the nightmare I had trying to start the car after I had to remove it to clean the egr I'd rather burn the car than change it lol

    No signs of any problems bar shocking acceleration but it's been like that since I bought it. I've had the car 3 years in May and I haven't had the injectors changed in that time, not sure if any of the previous owners did it though. Oil & filter were changed May 2018, cabin & air filter haven't been changed since May 2016, if the air filter could be a suspect?

    I had the seals changed on the injectors within the last 18 months - 2 years and I do very little mileage so I'd be fuming if it was them again but something is definitely wrong. What's my best option for something I can add to the tank to get any gain in mpg?

    I do have forscan, I'll scan later no breaks binding Egr isn't blanked but was removed & cleaned recently, glow plugs were also changed recently I haven't looked into de-carbonising yet but due to the mileage (175k) I think it's due is there something I can do myself first like redex (but not so controversial lol)

    Hello everyone, just wondering what sort of mpg people are getting out of theirs? I only really use it for work & back (4 miles each way) and I get about 25 mpg! It's recently been really bad, not sure if it's due to the cold weather or the price of fuel or if something more sinister is to blame.

    Potential Headgasket leak

    Fingers crossed it's what btmaldon said, my mk4 had this the whole time I owned it due to short journeys.

    2008 1.4 Petrol starting issues

    This one https://www.amazon.co.uk/Proscan-Automotive-Modified-Forscan-ELMconfig/dp/B07HGHSBH8 Works fine on my car (2009 Fiesta) but doesn't work on my friends, I thought at first maybe there was a problem with his obd port but then I tried a cheap Bluetooth adapter and the torque app on my phone and it worked fine.

    2008 1.4 Petrol starting issues

    Anyone? I'm more annoyed forscan won't connect than anything lol
  15. Hello everyone, a friend in work has recently bought a Fiesta, he had the battery changed 2 months ago and ever since he's had an intermittent fault. The fault is car sometimes won't start on the first or second attempt, on the third attempt he gives it a bit of throttle and it'll start but he'll have to keep the revs up or he'll stall. Once the engine has warmed up a bit it runs fine, I checked the battery & alternator both came back fine, I connected it to forscan but it wouldn't connect, I tried my cheap Bluetooth adapter & torque which connected but didn't show any codes. Any ideas? Ideally I'd like to find out why forscan doesn't want to play nice.
