Finished at 2pm today (shhh mums the word :-)) so i brought shitface in the factory and removed both belts, ran it up and it is still tapping away like woody woodpecker :roll:

I would say a Duff injector or fueling parameters are way out, 700 miles since i cleared the learns, no fault codes present.

No but it seems the last seller sold it to a tool :lol: :lol:

I actually am starting to think that it was damaged on purpose, you can't live with the noise it is really that bad, not loud just annoying :?

I need to buy 2 headlights and an ac rad and have it gassed before taking it to Ford if i stand any chance of him not blowing me off for the warranty.

Once i get it sorted I'll then get to work on it, remap and respectable styling, in limbo at the moment tho as i ain't loving it :cry:

It's kind of you to say :P

Here's my problem.

Visual shows nothing interesting.
Diagnostics are very limited without having reference etc i haven't gone too deep into live data but haven't found anything obvious.
Removal of the drive belts made no difference so all the ancillaries ate off the hook.

Possible pulley problem which I'll remove at the weekend.

After that is going to be the injectors, rocker off, timing cover. (It's only done 6000 miles and should be warranted and so with that in mind and going on the assumption that new customs shouldn't have any problems, I'm reluctant to start rolling my sleeves up when in all honesty i think that Ford should look at it.

Plus Paul said that early injectors were flagged as being faulty which I'm kind of thinking it is an injector chattering away.

I'll get to the bottom of it tho, don't fancy buying 1 injector for diagnosis tho but if i must then i will.

Sorry Al i missed this, i have only put quality diesel in so far it is 1 clicking tho rather than 4 which leads me to believe the problem is a problem, i was going to try 2 stroke but that seems more like prevention rather than a cure? :cry:
