  1. I'd be looking at changing the Idle Control Valve
  2. A faulty alternator draining the battery?
  3. Desperate Santa tries to bring Christmas cheer to the tube

  4. Too many things to do and not enough time!!!

  5. I'm thinking wheel bearing or CV joint
  6. Your insurance would be more for a 1.25 with an ST engine than it would be for a genuine ST. You'd need to change the engine,gearbox,driveshafts,brakes,ECU and engine wiring loom also the 1.25 suspension wouldn't be up to the job either
  7. Could be the Dual Mass Flywheel on its way out
  8. Possibly pollen filter not fitted correctly?
  9. It's more than likely the clockspring that needs replacing
  10. I'm presuming they checked the plugs,leads and coil pack?
  11. Sounds like it could be faulty injectors
  12. The last Starfighter! Awesome film I've not seen for years!

  13. The Diesel engine has a particulate filter that can get blocked up on short journeys I know a few people at work with the 1 litre engine in their Focuses and although they say its great the MPG they achieve is nowhere near what Ford claim perhaps 40MPG max
  14. Do you have many speed bumps in the area where you live? They are spring killers! Also did you replace with genuine parts?
  15. It's a waste of time as any fault codes it gives u will only relate to the clocks themselves
