Ford Transit 2003 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Transit here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Why isn't the turbo in my 2018 Ford Transit working?

    You’re on the right track, Don, with your guess that the whistling noise has something to do with the turbocharger’s bearing. But unfortunately, if you’re right and it’s the turbo bearing that’s making the whistling noise (and I agree with your theory) then a new or rebuilt turbocharger is the only real fix. Turbos have a hard life, dealing with extremes of temperature as well as the requirement to accelerate from almost nothing to anything up to 250,000rpm. The bearings that allow for this are sealed units and – generally – are not serviceable.

    But you might be lucky: A lack of turbo boost can be caused by many things, so check the basics like a loose boost pipe before you start tearing the engine apart.

  • Why will my 1999 Ford Transit only start when the accelerator is all the way down?

    The problem could be caused by a whole lot of things, Bill. Have the vehicle scanned to see if any error codes crop up which could then lead you to something like a dodgy fuel pump, worn injectors, a leak in the fuel system somewhere or even a crook sensor that is feeding incorrect information to the computer. To be honest, I’m suspecting a broken throttle-position sensor (TPS), especially as you need to floor the throttle to get the engine to start. Without the TPS working properly, the computer has no way of knowing how much fuel to inject into the engine.

  • Is the Ford Transit Connect front wheel drive?

    Ford's Transit Connect compact panel van range powers the front wheels, rather than being rear wheel drive as per larger more robust vans designed to haul very heavy weights.
