I'll echo KugaBuga, and thank you for the update, unfortunately a good few dont post their resolution and it doesn't help anyone. Pity it took so long too for your mechanics to find the fault and not to retrace the work they had done if engine was fine before the belt change. So were you without the Kuga all this time too.
It was a long winter to wait for solution for the fault and to know who will pay all this at the end. 4,5 months without Kuga during the winter time (we still have over 80cm of snow in this part of country).
The belt change was done in workshop A and the car was in workshop B (local Ford dealer) for those 4,5 months to fault search and repair. Workshop A searched the fault for three days and after that they raised they hands and said that I should take it to Ford dealer.
Most of the time car was just waiting next repair time, at start they booked a day and when no result next available time was maybe in next week or in two weeks. Later on they searched the fault every day.
Workshop A said that it might be fault out of their scope, but at the end I do not have to pay anything for the repairs.
Update of the situation, in case somebody is interested. The fault has not been found. The other Kuga had failure in fuel pump, mine not.
After last post following has been done:
Replaced fuel pressure measurement
Replaced EGR valve
Suspected that the cam chain (that connects cam shafts together) has jumped when belt was replaced--> opened the head cover and discovered that the chain was not jumped.
Did compression test and discovered that 1st cylinder had 30-35% less compression --> removed cylinder head and checked by another workshop. Head and valves were OK. Afterwards they said it might have been faulty measured, since after this compression test was OK and still same symptoms.
They replaced new injection nozzles, fuel pump and PCM and still no fault found (they will install old parts back). They even tried new throttle.
Still same symptoms and no fault codes and the revs are limited to ~2500rpm. They say that the fuel pressure starts to decrease at over 2300rpm...
Still it is nice to have 4x4 during winter, only if I could drive one...
Latest updates. It has been quite frustrating. The car has been at dealer for 6 weeks... They have tested electrics, some instruments, diesel nozzles and fuel pump, changed the fuel control valve. No fault has been found. They say that when car reaches 2300rpm then the fuel pressure starts to decrease.
It is interesting that during last week the workshop received second similar Kuga with same symptoms. Only thing that has been done to that car is that the fuel filter has been replaced. So most likely the reason is related to fuel system.
It is possible that when the filter is replaced the fuel filter housing has not been cleaned enough and some dirt particles has gone to somewhere where it is causing problems... New filter has been black from the lower part of the filter when they check it.
Sorry about last post, that information was before new turbo was fitted. The fault was not caused by turbo. The turbo was faulty but was not the reason for rev limit. The actual fault was crankshafts timing sensor's reluctor ring which was damaged in timing belt replacement. It was not visible in oscilloscope, the damage was so small. Now the car works fine.
Anyone out there got a good source for a Mk1 boot seal (the big one), or the extrusion with the right profile? Mine has been demolished by the dog and i'll need to replace it. I've looked at the catalogues of just about every extrusion manufacturer in the country and no one seems to have one...
Hi guys, anyone got any advice.
Few weeks ago couldnt start car, steering locked message retry. Traced to battery. Replaced it, erased any fault codes.
Now alot of time keep getting power steering malfunction message on start up, but apart from message everythings fine.
Read code stored, saying...
Hoping someone may be able to help as it seems most on here are going to be more knowledgeable than the local Ford garage I have been dealing with. Have a 2010 2.5t Kuga where initially the red alarm light started intermittently flashing with a pinging noises and message saying key not in...
Having a nightmare with the Reversing camera. Everything works fine except the lens of the case around the camera is cracked.
Unsure how it happened, but finally had enough as it's been getting worse and worse.
On the recent service and Mot I asked to get the camera case changed...
Over the last few weeks my washer pump became intermittent, then it stopped. I've changed the pump today but its still dead, so i'm obviously looking for something electrical. Fuse OK.
Any experience on a particular loom, or connector etc., that's been problematic at all?
