Engine Malfunction Service Engine Now warning message

Postby DIGGER73 » Thu Dec 14, 2017 12:30 pm

Help required:
I had my van serviced at an independent garage just over 100 miles ago (all filters, oil all pads and discs). Whilst driving today the Engine Malfunction, Service Engine Now warming message came on. I know have that constant illuminated amber I on the dash. The van wouldn't accelerate properly. I pulled up at a set of train lights, turned the engine off. On restarting the message has gone and the van accelerates normally. Has anyone got any ideas??

I'm going to take it back to the garage that serviced it to see if they can find any issues but any help from the community would help.

I took it back to the garage. They connected it up to their handheld pc code reader. They mentioned something but I cannot remember what it was-I want ro say sone thing about power delivery. They cleared the code and it's not come back. Seems like it was a blip, fingers crossed.

My 64 had the same message last week, turned the engine off and on and it cleared, but when it’s 3 degrees or colder I also get Hill assist not available, then Fuel filter blocked service required, turn it off and back on they clear, it only happens in the morning, never in the afternoon as long as it’s over 3 degrees. Tried booking it in, but they want me to drop it off at 7.30 and leave it with them, last time I did this they didn’t start to look at it till 4.00 pm so it was sat there for over 8 hours and I was sat at home waiting. I bought mine new and I got a 5 year warranty 5 years service, so will get rid when it ends

This has happened to me today on my way to work 30 mins into my journey suddenly the service engine now warning light pops up for a couple of seconds and at the same a loss of power occurs, it wont go above 2250 rpm. Turned it off and on again and it seems to work normal except the same thing happened on my way home and also the engine cut out a couple of times once going around a roundabout which was scary, I think it may have been because I changed down a gear and the revs went above 2250 but again when I restart it works fine again for a while I have had to nurse it all the way home. Spoke to Ford dealer who cant look at it for a week and have advised me not to drive it and call Ford assistance who they say will recover it and provide a loan vehicle does anyone have any experience of this? I am not sure what to do-get it recovered from home or wait till I breakdown

Total pain in the backside for me to use a loan van, but I think it keeps them focused on repairing your van. Now you've been advised to not drive it, you leave yourself open to claims that you made it worse.....hire or loan vans always seem faster anyway. :lol:

My van has been lying for a couple of weeks unused. Jumped in it this morning to pick someone up stranded in snow. Service light came on with message as soon as van started. It was -5 degrees at the time. Drove for an hour and it didn’t go off. Can’t comment on lack of power as didn’t get above 2000rpm or 25mph the whole journey anyway due to the arctic tundra we currently have in Fife. Van was dealer serviced less than 3000 miles ago. Dealers all closed today so will call tomorrow.

well I called ford assistance today they sent the AA out within an hour,and he plugged in the computer and decided that the fuel filter was clogged with wax/syrup as he described it and that it would have to be taken to the garage. When I get to the garage it turns out it was just to much water in the filter and they put a new one in for £79 If I had of known this I would of drained it off myself hey-ho. Good service from Ford assistance though

So to update on mine - the service now light has come on four times in the last week or so. Three times with first start in morning and then hasn’t returned rest of the day, then the last time it happened in the afternoon for the first time. It’s done 2500 miles since last dealer service. I have had it booked in at Ford for a week due in tomorrow, however they called today to say their diagnostic system has went down? Wtf? Don’t they use me stand alone readers? I think it’s maybe a fob off as I know they are busy.

Could do with this sorted. Pita.
