  1. Sorry I can't answer on the d5's Turbo's, have you enquired about the 08 ex plod t5 advertised on eBay reasonable mileage and no private owners. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I did read accurate there [emoji23]. I'm guessing high 40's is possible though Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Wow I would never have expected that much. I love the power delivery of the t5 but I also love to drive, and I'd do so much more of that if it was cheaper. The t5 could be made more special if it was out of daily use I guess Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I've often wondered how a d5 would feel compared to a t5 on the road. Is the difference in fuel economy very noticeable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Wow that's not good. Me and the wife once drove non stop back from Germanys black Forrest to York. This was in a Peugeot 406 though which I would say was the most comfortable I've ever owned. These days though I do enjoy to break the journey up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. In fact I think she wants me to buy another so she won't feel bad shelling out for a rebuild lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. They are indeed. And while the kids are young it takes all there mess and equipment they may require. I crave for an immaculate car to polish and in the future it will happen( along side the t5 until it dies) its not a car I could part with or is worth parting with haha. My wife is the owner of a 1jz engined Toyota soarer I bought her as a wedding present 4years ago. This covers me for whatever I want to spend [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Evening all. Just home relaxing after taking my wife and kids on a road trip 2 nights away a day exploring and a day in London. All in we have done just over 700miles A roads and smaller I'm a keen driver and the m1 is hatred in a package for me. Sat here reflecting now. I spend time bitching about what may or may not be up with the t5. Looking at parts I probably don't need and thinking about different cars. However in all honesty I can't imagine a more comfy and when requested fun place to have spent my travels and no complaints from the passengers either. My wife tells me I just need to love the car more and it wouldn't need as much attention. Hope many more of you have enjoyed a good drive this weekend. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Yea the info box always has its say. I'm guessing a wire has been pulled or the bulb has been removed as I'm sure it should light up red with the handbrake at the very least. Well looks like I will be pulling the clocks out at the next opportunity hopefully then I'll get an answer. I will possibly live to regret fixing it when I do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Don't be jealous there have been a number of faults that would have switched on that triangle. Most recently due to a perished vacuum line throwing an air mass fault. Fixed today [emoji3] I'd actually like mine to light up so I don't have to plug in every few days just in case haha. I'm jealous of your darling orange triangle. Is there two bulbs an orange and a red. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Hi everyone. In the 3 years I have owned my t5 the warning triangle on dash has never illuminated. Either red or yellow. Even with the handbrake on. It never worried me too much as I had a list of things to repair and was always checking codes. Well think I fixed the last problem today. So is it possible the bulbs have been taken out or can the light be turned off. Any advice appreciated before I take the dash out. Can unplugging the dash cause any problems Cheers James Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Sorry to butt in but this thread got me checking my car out as I get a maf low code 120D I think My flow is 9.2-10.2kg/h at tickover Ignition angle 10-15 btdc Says leakage air through throttle blade 3.6 Mine is an 05 2.4t5 Am I likely pipes or etm Cheers James Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Just out of interest did he change the whole twin pump setup and piping from the tank. I'm sure someone else will be along today. I know when I had fuel pump issues it was hell to diagnose and spent money on things I didn't need Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Is it possible that it's over fuelling from a false airflow or lambada reading? You would probably noticed. Or vacuum in the tank? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I too had receipt for replacement pump although not new. But I suspect by the amount of grit in the tank that they hadn't cleaned off the top of the tank and let all the crap fall in the tank. Because I new it had been changed I initially checked everything else first. Hope you get it sorted mate. I feel your frustrations. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
