  2. Hi After a nightmare start from trust ford finally got my focus right. Got a 15plate Today engine management light come on. Mrs drove it home just been out my odb is dead. The revs sat at idle and then dropped slightly but can hear a tinny tapping sound from the top right of the engine where correct me if I'm wrong fuel pipes the smaller ones. Anyone had issues??? it's going back to ford for fixing under warranty but they had it 3days for a miss shaped tyre

  6. Might be totally wrong here but had a rental ford transit van with eco mode. After a good drive it would use the start stop. But we'll picking up my mate in the morning I'd wait out side his house the eco would kick in, when getting low it would start back up. Suggest going for a bit of a drive make sure things are charged up and try Test your battery If you can, but don't be fooled sometimes you can. Read 12-13 v dc but battery still a dud

Dmf been ***** poor and failing on 20k or less Turbo issue with coolent (nylon pipe failing) suppose to help by idling the car after a hard drive or long run for 20 - 30 seconds suppose to help avoid this.
