I think they just want your money. I had glowplug problems so had all the computer test done at ford and they came up with all these different sensors that would prevent it from starting, one of them was the exhuast backpressure sensor/valve and all that was wrong were bad glow plugs. i ended up spending alot of money and it fixed nothing so i just decided to replace the glow plugs, what do you know problem solved.
