Answer this question

Alan, Brighton & Hove

Ford Galaxy

I have a 53 plate 2.3 Ghia and it has developed an intermittent fault which I can not find. When traveling the engine loses power and cuts it will generally restart when we are coasting then within 2 minutes of that the engine just cuts out all engine power is gone. The electrics are still on all lights functioning. Turning the key apart from all the normal dash lights nothing happens. Not even an attempt to turn over. If I then leave the car for 10 minutes and try and restart it restarts and off we go again. It generally happens when accelerating or there is a hi torque requirement, i.e accelerating or just after. It can go one or two weeks before it does it again. I have put it in the garage to check it out and they say they can not find the fault unless it happens and obviously it only happens when I am driving. Open to Ideas? and help?

The passenger footwell of my 2007 Ford Galaxy is continuously damp and after rainfall this week it is now soaking wet. It dried out over the summer months and we had the windscreen resealed to see if that would make a difference but with the rain this week the water wells up when you touch the carpet. Any ideas what could be causing it?

Hi my 19 tdi 2002 Galaxy runs lovely, then when warm and on high revs it starts juddering as though it`s struggling for fuel. If I back off the revs it goes okay, if not then it goes into limp mode. If I switch off the engine then it`s okay again, seems to be getting worse. Put new turbo on 10k ago, I bypassed the fuel filter but still the same. Any suggestions please, I`m really desperate?

Hi. I have a 2006 Ford Galaxy 2.0 ltr petrol engine. Recently when I turn the blower on, there is verylittle air coming from the air vents. The dial where you can choose where you want the air to be directed to, ie vents, windscreen, feet etc, was stiff and now it turns freely. Any ideas? Also would my car be fitted with an alarm, and if so, how would I activate this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank s. Gillian

I have a Ford Galaxy which recently has had a new turbo fitted. The problem I have is that when I accelerate it holds back like it`s in limp mode, then all of a sudden black smoke comes out of the exhaust and then it`s fine, that is until I have to stop and then the process repeats itself. I have been informed that it will do this until all of the oil is burnt out from the cat. Of course I am now a bit worried as it`s been two months and it still does it. The mass air flow sensor has been replaced and I am now sick of throwing money at it. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
