Fit an intercooler — to 75ps 2. It will eventually get worse. I was told that this could be a case of simply replacing the sensor or a fault with the wiring harness. Has the dealer tried to clear the code or have you disconnected the battery or used a scan tool to clear it? I want to blank mine off to help keep the turbo clean. I need to put about a 100 miles on it this weekend. Don't want to keep spending out on diagnostics. There are three sensors in the system which are used for a rationality check: barometric pressure, boost pressure and manifold air pressure.
Sold the car with 150k miles on. Ok, so Turbo cleaner cost me £100. On the Galaxy you can do it from under the car with it jacked up or on ramps. They have 7 working days to collect their parcel after they have been notified the delivery of their parcel to the collection point. I just spoke to evans halshaw here in chester, and they did say that this van needs a fuel pressure relief valve - it was on record that it was diagnosed and the previous owner was advised but never had the work carried out.
Unreal, I had seen that thread pointing the finger at the wiring harness; Dealer said no way, not associated. You are unlikely to get the fuel system dialled in with anything other than original parts. This does sound like the cause. This also occurred while going up hills. Cant recall the name of the sensor , sorry Anyway, i paid £160 for a new sensor and drove off a happy person. He did this for me He advised this had worked for some of the diesel taxis he had worked on. They couldn't find the fault and referred me to a garage who specialised in diesels.
Fit the gauge such that it is visible from your driving position. Basic tools needed and can be done in a weekend. Can anyone give me any details on where abouts the sensor is on the engine and how much a new sensor would cost? Intermixing the incoming air with recirculated exhaust gas dilutes the mix with inert gas, lowering the adiabatic flame temperature and in diesel engines reducing the amount of excess oxygen. I would be driving down the motorway and the car would automatically apply the breaks and go into limp mode. Engine was still going well, no problems.
Something lame going on here somewhere. So anything else worth looking at myself? The exhaust gas also increases the specific heat capacity of the mix lowering the peak combustion temperature. I believe some fords have a temperature sensor in the exhaust. I removed the turbo on my drive, stripped it down, cleaned it, reassembled and refitted it. Engine was still going well, no problems.
But a van to drive in London the above makes a difference in traffic. I believe some fords have a temperature sensor in the exhaust. The loss of power is intermittent, yesterday the car was ok, today it lost power a couple of times. Another way is to graph boost pressure using diagnostics equipment. They're on another bloody planet! Spending £30 quid fitted £18 filter only trade saves the worry.
The fuel Filter was replaced two weeks ago with a Bosch one, first thing I thought of but didn't make the difference I hoped for. They have 7 working days to collect their parcel after they have been notified the delivery of their parcel to the collection point. Foremost: think I'm damaging the car by continuing to drive it? If anyone needs more info let me know. It is now 2015 and my car has not gone into Limp Mode with this fault since. Basically the turbo vanes were sticking.
Foremost: think I'm damaging the car by continuing to drive it? Thing is, if it goes to ford and it doesn't cure the problem then where do i stand? Back to the garage i went. Some rural areas can also take an extra day or two and additional charges may apply. Probably cost £500 - £600 Ford new turbo £950 + labour. My fault used to occur mostly on hills to start with. Perform a leak off test or better still send the injectors to Panda Diesel in Hampshire for a good honest bench tested assessment.
I removed the turbo on my drive, stripped it down, cleaned it, reassembled and refitted it. Basic tools needed and can be done in a weekend. I have been told different things by different garages, from Mmmmm, you need a new turbo, too it is probably the air pressure sensor. Check that if you have not already done so. I want to blank mine off to help keep the turbo clean. The service manager told me the tech did a continuity check on the sensor and in that way identified the problem.
It never went into limp mode again. Acceleration is much better than before through the gears. They have no interest in fixing the bad design — avoid. Supposed to do that hadn't noticed that before? You can then verify if boost pressure drops when engine momentarily looses power. Ford could very well be waiting on a batch from the manufacturer which I'm curious if they're Bosch sensors and if so, there may be a comparable one that could work but your dealer and Ford isn't going to swap on aftermarket parts that aren't confirmed to work for your car. Best thing for modern diesels is to have a small engine and thrash it.
