  4. Really annoying problem

    Did you change the mid or rear section? I was having a look earlier and maybe thinking its the mid section but not sure if that can cause a build up of pressure?? Did you suffer any of the other symptons i explained? Lack of power and choking/jumping Thanks for your feedback though, i will definately look into it!
  5. Any body seen this mk7 fiesta on ebay

    I used to work at a credit hire replacement vehicle place and they buy batches of cars for extremely reduced prices, they get ragged something stupid for a year or certain milage and then sold for book price. They make most of their income from doing it, considering they are making nearly double on the profit of each car. Me personally wouldnt buy an ex-rental, after seeing the hammering they go through by so many different people.
  6. Cambelt Change?

    Any ideas how much a cam belt change is? I got a 98 1.8 focus with 122000+ miles, no service history. Definately thinking of getting it changed, lol!
  7. Really annoying problem

    Hi guys Sorry to burden you all with my problems again. Ok same 1.8 petrol focus 1998 s plate hatchback. Firstly when i lift the clutch to get the biting point it wants to stall, i mean it shudders like its an earthquake, give it a sec and lift a little higher and all is fine and you have a biting point. Secondly, everytime i accelerate usually after changing gear there is a psst noise from behind the engine somewhere. I have had a guy look at it and ran a diagnostics test and told me the catalytic converter and front lambda sensor needed changing (i dont know this guy and he has a proper backstreet garage, but he was willing to let me have the work done else where, so i did and cheaper). I have done what he said but the problem is still there. The noise is like a build up of pressure being released, not too loud but noticable. Thirdly, car hesitates to accelerate and sometimes jumps on acceleration. When maintaining speed you can sometimes feel it slightly jumping and when you slow down or take your foot off the accelerator it also shudders and jumps. The jumping is not bad like kangerooing but again noticable. I have spent £200 already to try and sort this which hasnt worked, i would appreciate any advise any of you have before i spend another load of money on something that dont cure it. Cheers to anyone who could shed some light on this. And i hope i can help solve your problems in the future!!
  8. What CAT converter?

    Hi guys, i have a 1.8 zetec focus 98 plate. I need a new cat converter and front lambda sensor. While looking for the cheapest cat converter on the net i have noticed there are 2 exactly the same just one is for 98-01 and the other is 98-04. The 98-01 is half the price to the 98-04. Why is this? I read something about type approved but not sure what this means. Can anyone help?
