Hey guys, This is the MAF learning/ recalibration procedure taken from the shop manual.
Clean the MAF and make sure the air cleaner is of fair condition.
Car must be at operating temp and engine idling.
Put neat piece of wire in to the BR/R terminal of the DLC connector above your clutch leg. Brown wire with a red trace.
Pop the connector out of the holder so you can be 100% of the wire colour.
With the other end of the wire touch it to the seat mount bolt (drivers), or a chassis earth.
5 times in 5 seconds.
Car does the rest.
I can't find the DLC connector in the engine bay, might be an overseas car in the schematic. The plug in the cab is the same terminal.

Just wondering if anyone had tried a product like Wynns EGR4 or similar (Liquid-Moly make one as well). I don't reckon it would clean everything as well as disassembling the manifold etc but is it worth it?....
I looked at that product too. I decided not to use it as the thought of running all the crap and carbon through the engine was a worry. If someone ever does do it, I reckon do a compression test before and after, I suspect on a already worn engine running all that crap through would make it considerably worse.

hey guys I have a Ford ranger 2010 4x4 and every second day the engine goes into limp mode the code coming up on the diagnostic machine says it's the throttle sensor, I have cleaned the connections on the pedal and all around the fuel rail but I can't find a sensor anywhere else. If anyone can tell me what's going on that would be great, others wise i'll have to send it back to Ford, thanks

I would say get a hold of the workshop manual and do a search through there first of all.
Too many mods, and many more to come so here's a link to my shed.

Try the on/off switch down on accelerator pedal. If it is out of adjustment, or disconnected, you ECU will bring up this code.

Hi!

Have been planning to change timing belt for my 2008 2.5TDCi Ranger. I know the procedure, but following step somewhat confuses me. Various repair guides regarding this 2.5/3.0 TDCi PK Ranger and the equivalent BT-50 timing belt procedures tell us to check the fuel supply pump attaching bolt torques to prevent over-tensioning of the timing belt after installation.

What bolts are these and what is the specified torque for these? Is this step critical or are the bolts probably correctly torqued if the engine has been working properly for the last 120000kms?

Changing Out Injector Seals on PJ Ranger 3.0 TDCI



This is an attempt at a step by step guide only to changing out the injector seals on a 2007 PJ Ford Ranger 3.0 TDCI diesel engine.

.........
Does anyone know if the injectors are serviceable? I'd like to do this ^^ but think it's also a good opportunity to give them a clean in my ultrasonic cleaner, bathed in injector cleaner. Is this do-able?

Cheers
