Diesel injector refurb / Diesel specialist near Reading, Berks

Looks like my Ford Kuga has a leaky diesel injector or two.

Looking for somewhere to get them refurbed but all that comes up locally (Reading) is Thames Valley Electro Diesel, who appear to be no more.

Any recommendations welcome.

Have a look at PF Jones, Feather Diesels, Carwood (they supply eurocarparts & others with recon injectors).
I have had issues with a kuga with water contamination, it may he worth removing the scv/imv from the hp pump and checking for any signs of rust on the internal steel components.

The water trap in the fuel filter is not very effective and an indicator light is not on all models, so the first warning is when the car won't start and a leak off test looks like this.

Seeing clouds of white smoke until really warm.

Just had turbo and EGR Cooler replaced, plus oil fuel and air filters

Still seeing P003a-61 code plus down on power and losing coolant somewhere.

#hacked off with it

Coolant loss and white smoke (steam) sounds like a head gasket or EGR cooler - and as you have had the cooler replaced already... any bubbling in the coolant expansion tank ?

Nope.. And it's been losing coolant a lot longer than the white smoke has been visible.. While going down, the coolant looks perfectly pink.. No visible contamination

Presumably the white smoke would continue even when engine is warm if HG?
