  1. The APP dipped as I got the engine malfunction light and I raised the foot on instinct. I was uphill and allways in the 6th gear until I got the warning light. I raised my foot, changed to a lower gear and proceed in limited mode as I could not park in that spot of the highway. Adding a cleaner picture with the details you highlighted. 🙂
  2. Is it my impression or rail pressure is the first to go? Detail is not great as this was taken with a chinese odb2 elm bluethoot and torque app.
  3. Just to add that this problem started to appear after I got a failure in high pressure diesel pump. The garage replaced the pump, the camshaft, the rail sensor, flushed the diesel circuit and serviced(cleaned) the injectors. I pushed the car before that intervention and didnt had this problem.

  4. My MIL and ESP light came back while driving hot (90°C) uphill in highway at 2100rpm (regen to start?). I managed to read dtc code with a cheap chnese wireless elm before stoping the engine. It reads P2263 - turbocharcher/supercharger boost system performance. Shall I look into the turbo? Enviado do meu SM-G930F através do Tapatalk
  5. I cleaned the earth points under the hood, cleaned dtc codes and after a ride I got the following: U0405 invalid data received from cruise control C1022 - right side steering wheel switch electronic internal failure 81128 steering wheel module mecanical failure. In the past, cruise control failed to activate, but now runs ok. I tried static regeneration with forscan and it ended successefull after 20 minutes, but there was no acceleration at all which I found strange. Reseting dtc and turning the steering I get immidiatly u0405 and c1022. Not sure if those could influence regeneration. I dont notice strange behaviour in the car except the MIL when running hot in highway for a long time. Enviado do meu SM-G930F através do Tapatalk
  6. Going to test mode I found following DTC in this order: C15100; C42268; C41568; C41668; C42068. Don't know if these comm problems may lead to failed regeneration. Have to check with Elm to see if anything else appears. Stability control light also lights on when regeneration fails.
  7. Replaced the plugs and engine works better but engine malfunction still appears at the time regeneration conditions are met. Can I trigger regeneration with forscan to check symptoms without going to highway? Enviado do meu Nokia 6.1 através do Tapatalk
  8. Hi, I have same sympthoms and checking dtc I get P0380 allways. Can bad glow plugs do this? Thanks, Jorge Enviado do meu SM-G930F através do Tapatalk
  9. Hi, I have this same problem. Checking with forscan I got P0380 Circuit A Glow plug. Can it be this the cause for my problem? Do I need to remove the glow plugs to check them, or can I test them through the wiring harness? They are in the back and need to take out egr to get to them. :) Thanks, Jorhe Enviado do meu SM-G930F através do Tapatalk
  10. I ended up using 10nm. It was a 4x8mm screw into the aluminium body of the oil filter housing. One of the bolts was kind of stripped but still holding. One of the seals for the oil ports which came with the kit was too large so I reused the old one. It is holding for now. Fingers crossed to not get leaks meanwhile.

  11. Ok. I will use torque from other brands. I saw about 20nm from Bently and Bmw for similar appliance. Enviado do meu SM-G930F através do Tapatalk
  12. At Ford I dont know if it is sold separated but at autodoc they sell it. Enviado do meu SM-G930F através do Tapatalk
  13. Hi. Anyone can tell me torque specs for the oil cooler of smax 2.0 tdci? Mine is blown and leaking and need to replace it but I cannot find procedure in etis for this version. Will I need new gaskets as not all kits bring them? Thanks, Jorge Enviado do meu SM-G930F através do Tapatalk
  14. I have a bad ground connection on my Escort 1.8TD mk6-7(08.1995). When put on load with lights, blower and heater there is a drop of almoust 2 volts between battery negative and lighter ground. Where can I find respective ground so I can try to fix it? Pictures, diagrams? Would be really helpful to avoid disassembly of all panels searching for it. :) It is a LHD.
