  1. Happy Birthday ANDY.C!

  2. hi i posted yesterday about rattling noise from engine ,it seems the engine has been burning oil and i have been told the bottom end is the problem , is there any way of fixing what is damaged or is it the engine knackered ?? as i have not got the cash to fix it , ive heard slick 50 will get rid of the rattle temporarily is this true ?? or has anyone got any ideas for me ,also if it does need engine , i will be selling for £850 as my car is immaculate if anybody can fix it .. thanks again people ....Andy

  7. Hello again was looking for some advice or possible diagnosis of a knocking noise when i turn the wheel on my 2001 mondeo zetec ,it does not knock all the time just when stering at slow speed like reversing off my drive for instance it will make a knock ,this happens maybe three times a day ,any ideas ?? Have been told it could be the cv joint , track rod end ? is this a hard job to tackle myself ? (haynes book on route) Thanks for your help in advance.. Andy.
  8. invest in auto glym polish may cost a few quid but it keeps your car looking pristine .....
  9. i would value your car at 400-450 if your lucky mate i just picked up new shape 2001 reg for 1300 ,looking on the autotrader may give you a better idea of what to expect ..good luck
  10. yes mate it is a nokia mcc-1 cradle have searched it ,and its compatible with the old school matrix phone and 62-6310 nokias,there !Removed! phones but as i said would be a shame to take it out may as well make use of it ... thanks for your feedback....Andy
  11. thanks for reply jay ,yes it was ex company car ,have wanted new shape mondeo for a while now ,got a really nice one at a bargain price ,excellent condition .the cradle is wired really neatly just thought it was standard ,be a shame to remove it as it is the full kit with antenna and in car loudspeaker ....i know where to come for future adcice...thanks again...Andy
  12. hi there have recently bought a y reg mk3 mondeo zetec ,am looking for some info on the cradle that comes fitted as standard ,and wondered if anybody has any idea what models of nokia is compatible with the cradle, thanks Andy
