Fault code u0131 and u0140 engine malfunction and poewr steering failiour

Mechanic's Assistant: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?

Fluids are all fine no noises comeing from the car also the car wont de imobelise unless the obd adaptor is plugged in

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2008 foed c max 2.0l cdti titanium

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Iv tryed plugging in to the obd2 port to do a code read but asoon as them 2 fault codes (u0131 & u0140 ) get cleared and i rev the car up they come straight back and stopes the car from reving up with engine malfunction appearing on the desplay

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Iv asked around and some one off a forum was kind enough to come have a look but sead it was a coms fault and couldent cnnect with the ecu so his next step would be to look at the ecu
