    black ford focus zetec 1.8
  1. Hi, my ford focus 1.8 makes a tapping noise only when it has been sitting for a long time let it stand for about 2 minutes running and its fine.I have changed the oil and fillter on it + i put STP in but still has not changed anything, i think they are hydraulic tappets but not to sure if they are. This has only started the last few weeks as the frost and the snow has fell. Any help on this problem or places that could work on it would be appreciated... Thanks jamie .
  2. Problem With Mph Gauge

    Hi, there i have a 51 plate ford focus, when driving the mph gauge drops and stops working all together, as this happens the rev counter stay's normal but u feel a slight drop in power. If you put the car in neutral it will stall when applying the break, then if you put it into gear while rolling it will kick in again but still the mph gauge will not work wired?. All of a sudden it will work again and you feel a boots ? this could happen more than one time on a journey. any help would be a great. Thanks Jamie ..
