  1. With a dpf, unless it's cracked, it's almost a physical impossibility for it to get worse, your goi g to get a dpf blockage and a de rate before that... It's really intended to catch people who have gutted or removed a dpf... I guess it could be a minor leakage around the edges, between dpf ceramic and the "can" and if you don't get it good and hot prior to test that it's not sealing to the can so well, so I suggest get whole engine and exhaust nice and toasty prior to MOT Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  2. I know you've done the pipes etc.., but Have you confirmed by test, that you have no vac leaks, there is a good guide somewhere on best ways to do this. I had a leak at the non return valve at thd vac pump I think, it was on the same engine. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  3. Best start by telling us what car it is, what year etc.. details on engine type, and then posting this in the section for that type of car, not in general :) as you are unlikely to get much useful replies or even have your post seen for very long in general section.

  4. Most of the work is done by your phone, but it's a bit of both. And of course the in app interface is driven by each compatible app too. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  5. This. You have to have android auto on phone, along with the compatible apps. [emoji1303] Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  6. Any further progress? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  7. Well seems like they are not doing enough diagnostics before throwing very expensive parts at it! Have they scoped for rail pressure in case there is behaviour not being flagged by ecu but may indicate a pressure drop at injector opening? This reminds me of a loom issue that plagued my buddies Mi16 engine transplant in his old 205 gti; kept cutting at 3k rpm, replaced all sorts, ended up being a broken pin to wire joint in a multiplug...

  8. Sounds like they need to check, using cylinder pressure sensing, which injector is faulting, and if they can't fix it to one cylinder, then look to other components, like the ecu or maybe loom, I. E intermittent failure to fire the injector, rather than the injector itself. Have they ruled out ecu or loom? You'd probably need to scope the different injectors to see if there was signal dropout.

  9. Try posting in the focus tech section bud, this is general area.
  10. Try posting this in the s-max section not the general section 👍🏻
  11. 1 year on, still all good?
  12. Isnt the speed in Waze the GPS speed - such that it will always be different to the car speed since the car speed, from the speedo pickup is always calibrate slightly over, to prevent a sticky legal situation for the car manufacturer, they err on the side of you going slower than you think so they can't be caught out with the driver getting a ticket based on a low reading.
  13. try this : im going to get one for my focus, there is actually an even narrower one too that fits fiestas and similar. We have a people carrier, but sometimes I want to take more in my car.
  14. I had this on a car (not a ford) that was due to the manifold boost pressure sensor going duff, it was reading too high, so I was hitting a point where the engine thought it was over boosting and then would cut the power until the boost dropped back...
  15. @Postie123 Do any of those parts match up to a very late MK3.5? Andy
