Hi there thanksOk the most probable cause of your fault will be a damaged boost solenoid vacuum hose
I have seen this issue a few times after the oil filter has been changed
There is a rubber vacuum hose that runs right next to the oil filter housing
What I have seen is this has become trapped between the oil filter housing and top part you removed
And when you tighten the oil filter top part back home it has become damaged /split
This causes a wrong boost postion reading at idle
So this must be our first port of call with this issueIf you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know
If you were satisfied with my answer /advice
PLEASE REMEMBER TO RATE MY ANSWER
Kind regards ***** ***** and have a nice day
Any positive feedback is kindly appreciatedBrian

I WILL GET THIS CHECKED OUT AT MY LOCAL FORD GARAGE BUT THIS IS APPROX 3 MILES AWAY,WILL THE CAR BE OK TO DRIVE WITHOUT CAUSING ANY DAMAGE.
Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 11 months ago.
Hi thereYou won't cause any damage but There will be no real power from the vehicle as the turbo won't work properly due to the damaged vacuum hose
If you remove the oil filter housing top part you will see the hose I spoke of
It may just need released but in most cases its ripped due to it being tightened down with the oil filterIf you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know
If you were satisfied with my answer /advice

OK THANKS FOR THAT INFO & ONE LAST QUESTION,DO YOU JUST LOSE THE BIT OF OIL THATS IN THE FILTER WHEN YOU REMOVE IT IF THE HOSE IN QUESTION REQUIRES REPLACING.THANKS.
Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 11 months ago.
Hi there
Yes the oil loss is minamal and only what is at the top of filter housingRegarding the damaged hose Abu decent piece of vacuum hose (correct diameter ) as it must be a nice tight fitAs from memory the hose only comes with the boost solenoidKind regards ***** *****
