The air box on our C-max exploded when the engine was started from cold recently. A brand new air box was fitted and within two weeks the same thing has happened again when the car was started. The air box has blown itself apart. Can anyone tell us what might be causing this?

Suggested Solution

are you starting it and moving the car small distances then turning it off causing the plugs to flood with fuel and so having to crank it for a long time and causing it to backfire (for example moving it to get another vehicle off the drive)also you could try replacing the plugs if it is having difficulties starting straight away
