Hello. I have a ford transit 2010 mk7 soft ice cream van. I have been having a ticking noise on idle only, I took it to ford garage and came out with a code p215a which means PTO power take off switch open circuit ,they said that they have never had that problem before, they update on the latest computer but still the same. It seems that no one find a solution to this as ther are quite a few on Internet with same problem as me, especially when your garage doesn't even no what's wrong. The pump has been calibrated, injectors are fine, but still the same. The van is in no loss of power dosent fluctuates, runs perfect but has that horrible of knocking ticking noise as the old Diesel engines. Any ideas . Thanks Mark

my van starts first time every time .the problem is if I travel approx. 40 miles the management light comes on and we slow down and stop ,let her settle and off we go again for up to 12 miles this then repeats itself. the speedo thinks that it is a rev counter , it flickers on tick over put foot on axcelerator pedal and needle will go up. pump filter tank lights all fine . earth wires checked ,this is a converted van to a campervan all the old wiring has been replaced with new I was hope to sell the van but I cannot sell in this state its not fair , I have spent a lot of time and money on the old girl and when she drive she sings like a bird .is there any body out there that can give me a little hope thanks keith tarry forest of dean glos

what can i do . it is not surpling diesel to the injector
Sounds to me like you need to replace the inhabited swirl pot unit which is situated behind the 3rd injector and needs de greasing to allow the nipple to penetrate the decoder . That way it'll start slurping in the catch tank and feed through into the guzzler. Straight talkin Shaun from Essex

When I stop at a traffic light, put the gear in neutral let the clutch out the motor sometimes stops. What do I do to prevent this?

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. When I attempt to check this on a computer at a garage it does not show any faults.
