Hi peeps. I'm a forum virgin so bare with me. A friend has an R plate, 1.8TD Mondeo Endura which has always run fine. After being parked up over Easter when she went to it it had developed a problem which I'm told is related to the Injector Pump. There is no set pattern as to when the fault will occur but all of a sudden, it starts knocking badly, then revs up suddenly and very sharply, and billows black smoke. At first she could stop it by touching the accelarator but now she is having to turn the engine off.
Does it sound like the Injector Pump to you experienced peeps?
I have an Ultima which I have the diagnostic leads for which I hoped would hook up but it won't. Anyone know whether they should be compatible of not?
Thanks for reading and I would really appreciate some guidance.
