Ford Ranger

I have a Ford Ranger 2005 TD 4x4, I am having trouble starting it when cold. I have changed the glow plugs and fuel filter and tested the glow relay and all ok there. Pump up manual priming pump till it's hard and leave it for about 10-15 minutes then go back to it and I am able to pump it 2 or 3 times again. Is this normal or could there be a possible leak? I have now changed the manual priming pump and the pipe from filter to main pump and still no better. After some cranking it does start with a cloud of white smoke from the exhaust and runs rough for approx 20 to 30 seconds, then it runs fine all the time its driven. Turn it off and start it again and its fine, leave all day in the sun and again its fine, but leave it to get cold or overnight and I have trouble starting it. I have tried the glow plugs 2-3-4 times but seems not to do anything. I have tried cleaner in the tank and now tried Shell V Plus. Do you have any ideas, Thanks for your time Graham

Answers

The priming pump going soft after 10 mins is normal. Your starting problem is definately glowplugs. You say you have tried glowplugs 2-3-4 times, is that replacing them or just running them? have you tested that they are working? Also that they run for long enough? Ian from South Africa

My Ford Galaxy (Ghia) 1.9 TD has an electronic problem. The hazard lights flash for no apparent reason while out driving and it`s very difficult to stop them. If the driver’s or passenger window is activated they will flash again. The rear windows will not open at all and the rear wiper refuses to work. I’ve checked the fuses and they are okay. I can’t help thinking there is a bad earth or connection of some sort not working. A friend says it’s the ’control box’. What’s that? Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated.

When I’m driving and on the high gear, I press the accelerator, mostly when going uphill, the engine switches into an emergency mode - yellow control lamp switches on, power cuts off, when I re-start the engine everything is ok, until the next time that the event repeats itself. When driving normally everything is ok. I think there is a problem with fuel consumption (this is very high) or exhaust fume analyser.

Ford Kuga

Hi Want to but a demo Kuga 2015, but engine block light stays on and manual indicates engine malfunction. However the dealer says their onboard computer system has diagnosed some exhaust emission sensor faulty. Is this so, and what procedure needs to be followed to correct the above? Does the sensor need replacing, and, or, could their be some other proble? Is this a serious problem? Should I look for another Kuga?

Answers

It is most probably the diesel particulate filter sensor. They are easy to replace but since you have taken it to a dealer would make sense for them to deal with it. Expect to pay around £250 including fitting. Alan Shaw from Essex

DPM sensor replacement indeed - I was charged just under £500 for this by TCH Burton on Trent. I queried the cost with TCH and Ford Cust Services but got nowhere. Shop around for price, including independants. Still love my Kuga, but that was a slap in the face. Never going back to a main dealer again. Their loss! Barry Bexson from Derbyshire

Ford Kuga

Had this car 15 months with no problems at all. Went into supermarket to do a shop came back and my key fob would not work, I thought the battery in the fob must be dead. I unlocked the doors manually but the car still wouldnt acknowledge the key to start. So I had to put the key into the ignition and the car started first time and I was able to take the key from the ignition. But now my (i) light is on all the time, my indicators work in the outside but do not show up on the dash or make a noise, my temperature monitor is not registeringredients a temp either. I can not gain acces to my boot at all. Can anyone please shed any light what my next move is?

Answers

You may need to do a soft reset of the system. Disconect positive laad from battery (first check you have a radio code). Connect a low wattage 12 volt bulb in series between the disconnected positive lead and ground. Bulb will glow for a few moments then gradually dim then go out. Disconnect your test bulb wiring and reconnect your postive battery lead to battery. Everything should now work although you will need to enter code on radio to get it to operate again.

My wife has a 2009 KA which developed a knocking sound which is only audible on a slightly bumpy road, however, we cannot find where this is coming from. We have just had it MOT'd and the mechanic said it needed front anti roll bar bushes and roll bar end links, which we had him change. The knocking is still there. We have now had 3 mechanics look at it and nobody can find where this noise is coming from, and frankly it is driving us mad. Has anyone else had the same experience with their KA, having the same issue and can anyone offer any advice on what it could possibly be.

Ford Kuga

First Registered June 2015 and really pleased, no problems, but i cant understand that the following. When pulling away from either my drive, traffic lights etc as i allow the clutch to come out the engine revs increase and i pull away, BUT i have not even put my foot anywhere near the throttle . Tried it with my right foot under the seat and well away from the peddle , the revs increase to about 1200 all on their own. Any ideas please

Answers

Fairly sure this is normal behaviour. My Kuga does likewise, but then so did the C Max I had previously. I personally like this feature, in traffic queues it is quite possible to crawl in traffic without ever having to touch the throttle and I can't see any downside to this at all. But I would also like to ask if anyone has experienced the following weird behaviour When pressing the start button (a 15 reg kuga 150hp) there sometimes can be some slight hesitation, then when you let go the button, that seems to turn the engine, but I get a most alarming situation where the engine appears to fire up as if running backwards, or run on just one cylinder. I know that sounds barmy, but the result is the engine runs so violently rough it shakes and bangs around inside the engine bay and I'm scared stiff it will rip itself off its mounts! The engine runs like this for a few seconds, and I'm in such a panic mode I'm not sure what stops it, I certainly jab the start button again to try and stop the engine, but not sure if that is what actually does stop it. Anyone else ever experienced this or knows what's going on. Peter Hopley from Derbyshire

Answers

check if you get power on your glow plugs when switching the ignition to the on position. There should be power (batt voltage) for couple of seconds then it will drop to zero, if this is the case it means your electrical circuit is fine. Next step is to test the glow plugs, start with cyl no 1 by taking the glow plug out and connecting 12v to the threaded part at the very end of the glow plug and at the same time connecting the body of the glow plug to the neg terminal for not longer than 10 sec at a time, the tip of the glow plug should become red hot very quickly so be careful not to hold the plug at the bottom. If the glow plug does not heat up then you've got a dead glow plug. repeat this step with cyl 2,3 and 4. Floors from South Africa
