Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
No idea what the code was. Tend to go short runs from cold with weekly drive of 50 miles plus runs of a good length, probably not often enough for diesel! But am careful to follow advice on starting, always wait for the yellow dashboard light to fade and stopping at the end of a trip by letting the engine tick over for at least a minute. On the computer scan the DPF was not mentioned. Mileage is 64250
Am happy to pass on this advice to my mechanic and can certainly activate your road test though no motor way or even length of dual carriageway in my part of Norfolk or north Suffolk just over the county border. I cannot even guarantee any period of uninterrupted driving of even 20 minutes and I assume that it is the uninterrupted part that is necessary?
As far as rating your advice - I wish to keep this chat available until we see if your suggestions do the trick - is that possible please? I visit the garage this afternoon but as it's the week end tomorrow it could be early next week before I know the answer to that when I will be more than happy to rate your advice favourably.
It would obviously be better for you if I have you at the other end of the chat to receive my update.
It is good to have your advice duplicated by my garage - not a main agent - and he will be following that through next week. I will give you a Satisfied rating. I may get back to you with further information if he finds more of a problem but not to cancel my current satisfaction rating.
Trouble grew - and in the end it was a past-repairing turbo. No problems with the garage, I was looked after very well and their customer service is exemplary. his is a small independent garage kin Lowestoft which has a strong customer following.
Yes I rated you, yes I paui my £27 so no further action needs to be taken by me.
