2000 ford fiesta courier van td di running problem

Just brought van when i test drove it driving it respectfuly like any normal person would up to about 60mph it was fine so i had it, then on my way home i drove it like i normaly would being a courier and in any gear when you put your foot down it starts to pull about half way through the gear and starts holding back then go then back then go every other second, i had it put on the handheld machine at a garage and it was saying there was no problem no error codes but they thought the problem may be the egr valve they put a blank out plate/gasket on it to shut this valve off which should have solved the problem if it was this but it has not made any difference, any suggestions would be of help, thanks this is an english van and have picked alternative vehicle as didnt have the option for this one.

Timming belt marks on ford fiesta courier td

Normally I would give you a direct link to the Diagram you need but there isn't enough information in your post. Follow this link and when teh page comes up select the Serpentine Belt option which also shows you the Timing belts. You will need the Year, Make and model of vehicle. I highly recommend you get a Haynes or Chilton's Auto Repair manual on your vehicle to get the step by step instructions for lining everything up properly since you can actually lone the marks up Dead Center, 90 degrees out of time, 180 Degrees out of time and 270 degrees out of time if your not careful. Good Luck.

Where can i get a free workshop manual for a ford fiesta courier van

have a look on this site as there are many manuals in PDF format ,but i would like to know why you need a manual for a ford fiesta van as they are so basic ,if their isnt one go to halfords and pick up a haynes manual ,yes i know they are written by mechanical engineers and not associated members of the institute of road transport engineers and every one based on an actual strip down by who ?? as the only legible thing is the pretty pictures and the wiring diagrams.But it can be useful as a tea tray as its a wipe clean plastic cover.

Just fitted new alternator but battery light not working

That indicator is commanded by a relay connected to the alternator. Check the wires and the relay. Or it may be just a burned bulb.
