hi guys, hope someone has come across this before. ever since i had the steering rack replaced my L reg escort wont start sometimes. very intermittent. when you turn the key you cant here the fuel pump noise and it just turns over. it does have an immobiliser but not sure how to disarm it as we never fitted it and the guy who we bought it off wont speak to us. hasnt even posted in the v5 document. sore subject, we bought the car for 400 and it sold on ebay for 2000!! he forgot to end auction. anyway!!!!! iv tried everything. shut all doors and sun roof to see it they have a sensor, taken the radio front off, held down the brake/clutch etc, locked it from the inside/outside.....nothing seems to work. wait about 10-40 mins and turn the key and the noise is back and it starts. are they factory fitted immobilisers or ones you do yourself? we have changed the battery aswel, £90 so it wasnt a cheap reconditioned one. any idea's what it can be? thanks everyone x
hi guys, im new to this forum but not new to fords. my name is vicky and im from hull. just bought a decent L reg 1.8 escort, in good condition for its age but has been sat in a garage for 3 years. recently past its mot and just taxed it but now it needs a new steering rack. i can find the rack no problem but its the pipes coming off the steering rack that i really need. been quoted £386 from evans halshaw and searched all breakers in hull for these pipes. has anyone got a mk5 escort they are breaking or know where i can buy these pipes cheap???!!!! please get in touch soon as poss, its sat on my drive leaking fluid!! PS. can you put a standard steering rack in instead of a power steering one? just means more arm work when driving.
