  1. Hello!! New member - recenty purchased an Escort 1.8 non turbo diesel 55 van - 137,000K... A couple of queries please... Its a T reg (1999) - what is the model number, i.e. 5 or 6 The wheels/tyres should be R13 80/185, what are the pros and cons of changing these for others, i.e. R13 70/175 etc Turns over alot every morning but always fires - will start ok when warm - what could this be??

  2. Ford Escort Van

    Dear Sirs, A little wisdom if you would be kind... I have recently bought a 99 T reg escort 55 van - what mark is this?? The wheels/tyres should be R13 80/185's - what are the pro's and cons of changing these for differing tyres - i.e R13 60/165's etc?? Seem's to turn over alot in the morning from cold but always eventually starts (so far) - but starts well when warm - what could this be?? Regards...
