comment How to recharge AC using booster from auto parts store?
@endolith The shaking and rotating is actually to help the refrigerant vaporize and get into the system. Hopefully the oil goes along for the ride.

comment Re-programming injection pump on French Ford Focus TDCi
It looks like there is an aftermarket tool that might do the job: F-Super Mk2. No idea who makes it, though it seems to be available through various resellers. I'd look for a reseller willing to support it for the application at hand.
