Hi,I have a 1.9 tdi Ford Galaxy on which I've changed the turbo recently. I've cleaned all of the necessary parts before taking them back. After assembling them all and trying to start it goes striaght away, so I let it run but after a few minutes or the temperature went up to 70, I observed that smoke was coming out little by little and it became heavy. I`m thinking that it might be burning the excess oil so I leave it but the smoke doesn`t go away, so I have to switch off the engine. I`ve checked everything and all is fine. The engine runs and idles fine. Can anybody help?

Hi I have a Ford Galaxy, only bought it a couple of weeks ago and there was a problem with the brakes. The pedal just goes straight to the floor and stops slowly but not brilliant and then a couple of days later the clutch went I thought so I got RAC to come out and he said the clutch wasn't gone, it was the brake and clutch master cylinder? (I know nothing about cars, except how to drive one) so I had that changed and bled the brakes but still nothing? Any ideas anyone? Thank you in advance :)

Hi. I have a problem with the automatic gear box on my galaxy. Will not shift out of first gear, reverse is ok. I’ve heard that the problem can be resolved (short of getting another gearbox) by changing the gearbox oil and/or fitting a new relay (30?) which seems to control the gearbox. Any help would be most welcomed, as a new gearbox is an expense I could really do without, especially if there is a cheaper alternative! Best regards. Tony
