Dear 1.8d turbo Escort owners.After putting one of the first queries about the timing of the injector on line I have managed to find out enough information to set up my Escort better . I have found out that the idle up /cold start device alters the timing and can be adjusted at the pump .
"HAYNES" publish a work shop manual on the diesel Escort 1990-2000 . It is "Ford Escort and Orion " 1990 to 2000 (H to X registration) Diesel. Haynes book # 4081 ISBN 1 84425 081 4 . This book may be bought direct from haynes on www.haynes.co.uk
On page 4A.4 fuel and exhaust systems in section 5 Idle speed check and adjustment turbo models , there is a step by step way of setting up this control .
After going through this procedure it bought my Escort back to life and now goes like it when I bought it.
Hope this will be of some use to some of you .
