TDCI hesitation/injectors latest from ford

Hi, I like many have had the hesitation/`misfire` at ~ 2000rpm. Been to dealers 4 times and had various fixes to no avail. Recently went again and took tech on drive to show fault as last time was told they all do it!

Ended up having new injectors and pipework (allegedly) and this has cured it! Trouble is it now has bad diesel knock at 1000-2000 rpm. Took it in again today only to be told that the tech who did it says the ecu was remapped after the injectors were fitted and this has retarded the ignition causing the knock! I questioned this and was told it is a trade off and Ford are due to release another `patch` soon to rectify it. They didn`t bother to tell me to expect this noise and let me take the car in before telling me! I think they are bulling me personally. They this `fix` has been sent out cos Ford are replacing that many injectors that this helps while a fix is sent out in a few weeks?

Will this do the engine any harm? It does seem to have affected fuel economy (going by the computer) as it was always upper 40`s /lower 50`s and is now at 44 after 200 mile m/way run and 20 miles town use.

Car is an 05 plate Euro 4 2.0 tdci lx

Have tried to get Ford technical bulletins on internet and even Ford technical phone number but only got premium rate recorded message service through Ford customer relations office.

Any advice??

Iam going thrugh the same or simalr problem
took my 2.2 tdci ghia x in for a lumpy tick over ( semes to start on 3 cylinders ) was remaped with latest update and now runs like a pig from cold. Hoping to have it remapted if poss with old settings until fords come up with a fix. Also sounds like a bag of nails to, never uesd to be like it.
