General Car Chat / car battery rip off
« on: 11 July 2020, 18:46:40 »
my son had until very recently had a diesel ford escort derived van. he needed a battery & a local garage that he rang told him to take it to them. they quoted him 70 so he left it with them . half a hour later he got a call & expected to be told it was ready instead they said when the quoted they hadn,t realised that it had a stop/start system & the quote had gone up a bit to 340.

as being an owner of two 2.2dti,s in the past, and experiencing the same problems i would recommend a remap & a total delete of the egr .the dti,s i owned were both done & that put an end to the problems that you are experiencing. i did thoroughly clean the intake manifold but still it had the same problem. remap + egr & blank is the answer.

my father in-law died , he had asbestosis through working in the coach building industry .employed at 15 as an apprentice joiner for British rail. he was an amazing man , never had time off through illness. did the last 20yrs on nights doing 4 x 12 hr shifts. on a sunday night i,d meet up with him & have a drink with him & on our way home for about a year he would complain about the pains he were having but still never saw a doctor. eventually the family doctor was called & he remarked that technically he shouldn,t be seeing him cos he had never seen a doctor he wasn,t registered anywhere. however they got him into an hospital & 7 days later he died. 1974 at the age of 64. sorry i kind of hi-jacked the op post.

well after being told that i have problems with an adblu pump & to fix it i would have a bill of 1500 + to get it sorted but because since the warning lights havent appeared again & the car is running as it should i was having doubts of what i was told. next monday it was meant to be getting the work done. they were going to have my car for at least two days & i would have a loan car.  because of my doubts i took my car to a guy who i know is really good & got him to check it out. good news all was ok except for a minor B.S.I issue.. so at the end of it all no pump issues & well worth the 1hrs journey down the M1 .   :y

Just fill the ad blue tank to the brim,It will possibly sort its life out then.My lad topped up his Skoda Karoq part way and the car wasn't happy so he filled it and the problem went away

I've yet to have any sort of Adblue message on my ML and have just added a gallon every now & then in the last 12 months/10000miles. I'm not able to get an Adblue tank level indication so haven't a clue what's in there.
exactly how it is for me. still no eml or urea nor is the big red warning about emission control that appears when the ignition is turned. i cant see there being an adblu problem . plus i may have caused something without me following the correct procedure.

What were the fault codes?

I don't buy the pump guess, it is a sad indication of just how little knowledge there is of these systems in the trade  :-[
i dont know the any of the fault codes. but my update i have spoken to a knowledgeable friend of mine & he too doesn,t buy the pump being at fault.

Ouch! Well, you learn something new every day.

TBH I had no idea they drew that much current!  :D
  the worx that i mentioned i have is not that bad, did my 2.2dti estate easily enough. though i did buy a bigger battery tho cannot remember having to use both batteries to wash my car.

this DS4 I have through up a warning about ad-blue needed a top-up & i immediatley topped up. however the urea warning remained .when i got home i looked up probable cause & the warning i got shows an orange light initially & although it needs an adblue top up i should get 900mls before its critical. if i ignore then a red warning light appears ,carry on ignoring & eventually the engine wont start,. the urea tank holds 17ltrs, but there is no way of knowing how much is in . i topped up initially with 1.5 ltrs then i had a 5ltr at home & put that in too. took it for a drive and after 2mls the urea warning went off . however the eml is on. saying all that the car is performing as it should so wonder if its just a matter of clearing the fault , .open to any words of wisdom , i havent a clue.
     
 an update on above post. had a diagnostic codes read ect, the guy doing the test concluded it the adblu pump at fault & advised its a dealership job. he must have cleared the faults as no warnings lights on at all as i drove the 1/2 mile distance to my house. i then had a journey of about 15miles doing motorway speeds. car running perfectly , whats more no sign of any fault lights. i thought if the adblue pump was faulty the big red mid warning re Faulty emissions would have appeared again & thr urea light would have come back on.  :-\ :-\

That may not be the only fault. Possibly that it needs a regen hence the sudden increase in adblue consumption.

Trudging around short, slow infrequent journies will make George Best look sober ;D
i do give it a good thrash now & then , what i omitted to say that may be relevant , when i booked it in for a dealership service they told me that the ds 4 were on recall because of a cat problem, but they cancelled because of covid so i used my local garage so,s i could get a service stamp.
