  1. Recently had battery issues ending up putting a new battery in. The car sat without a battery for about 24 hours. Now the fuel gauge reads a quarter which is about right but the low fuel level indicator has illuminated even though I know there is fuel in the tank. Any ideas? ford fiesta 2009 1.6 diesel

    P0299 turbo underboost

    Can anyone help me? currently im having issue with a p0299 fault code. Turbo was replaced last year, as well as fuel filter. So we probably could rule out clogged filter and failing turbo. I've checked all intercooler hoses. The intercooler has oily black deposits on the lower left corner and there is also black sooty deposits directly around the union coming out of the intercooler towards the intake. I've tightened the clamp and tested and seems that there is no leaks (only tested with idle revving) the turbo seems to be working ok, while the car is stationary I can rev the engine slowly and I can hear the turbo spool up only to cut out around 2000 rpm. Although while driving I can hear whizzing noises when accelerating and shifting gears. I have used an obdII Scanner and the MAP sensors reads around 100 kpa at idle is this normal? Has any one got any ideas? Thanks Ford S-max 2008 2.0l diesel
