I see, so the plastic tube is a guiding aid so the rubber as you said does not crease,
well I did not know that! however the so called motor engineers at the garage should of,
R well they will have to purchase another seal and get the job redone properly this time.
I am insisting they also take the timing cover off so I can check if the gaskets are in place.
with regards To the oil it was supposed to be all changed with new as the sump was replaced also
I thought it was a bit quick to go so black, I had not even driven anywhere.

was it low? or could just be clogged filter if it was due a change :wink:

Also if they're going to take cover off again, to avoid the need of getting yet another new one :roll: after all bolts (and two nuts) are removed from the edge, drive a large flat head screwdriver in at the top centre just enough to start to ease the cover forwards (it will bend a bit where the screwdriver is but can be bent / hammered flat enough once off), then whilst a slight gap is there, they should use a small width wallpaper scraper to slice evenly down each side of the cover whilst gently pulling forward, work around all the edge like this and it will come off with minimal bending, allowing re use :wink: (have done this loads of times, including 4 times on my own van, never needed a new cover yet) (dont forget a new waterpump gasket when its re fitted after cover goes back on and new o ring on the coolen elbow, lubricate o ring with smear of clean engine oil before pushing elbow back in, to stop o ring getting nicked against metal edge :wink: )

And yes oil will turn quite black if engine has been run since filling up. Diesels are that dirty :D

One final thing to add, if the crank pulley is coming off again, the htree bolts that hold it on MUST be replced, Fords state they can be re used a maximum of 3 times, due to there required torque, they slightly stretch each time theyre done up :wink:

They said they changed the oil filter and oil as sump was changed also as was the oil pump due to old
one broken,

I am dropping it off Monday morning with the hope
of having back with no more problems,

Has any one any idea to why my power steering is not as smooth? new was fitted also.

i would think its a wiring issue, but a gauge will confirm this

Ebay for a gauge ans T fitting

As for the front cover seal leaking i would say the cover isnt central on the crankshaft

going to put new chain cover on with new crank oil seal and redo sump I suspect pickup tube fault as I have put more oil in and now no light on bends.
Shall I use ford sealant or is there a gasket for these?

sealant for the sump, gasket for the cover,

when you fit the cover use the new crank seal to centre it
