frown 2004 Focus TDCi problems


New here, first post.

I just had my EGR valve / manifold replaced at the weekend as the garage said that it was broken, now I have a different problem.

When i start the engine, the engine warning light pops up, the mileometer flashs dashs (----) across it, and the RPM gage drops to 0 from its real valve, then spikes back up.

This doesnt always happen when starting the engine, sometimes its a bit later in the trip, the above will repeat. Whenever it is though, the engine warning light stays on for 5 - 10 seconds and then goes off when I have slowed down.

Does anyone have any ideas what it could be? Could the garage not have reset the computer when they changed the EGR valve? Could it be some sensor gone funny?

Can i boot it into test mode to see any error codes coming back?

Re: 2004 Focus TDCi problems

Have you spoken with the garage and told them what it's doing now? It's possible there's a poor connection some where. You also should be able to get a code for the problem. Autozone will check for free.

Welcome to the forums.
