  1. Vettel passed under yellow flags early in the race. Will we see a post race penalty? #bbcf1

  2. This #f1 is already an amazing race. This is going to be a classic!

  3. Two cars just been petrol bombed in Jen's street! Whoof, boom!

  4. Look... It's a Tin Tin Tin! http://t.co/IuDJRtdb

  5. Does anybody know why Santa's little helpers in Belgium are blacked up like minstrel men from the 19th century?

  8. Also, he said we were lucky because it's one of 6 (IIRC), and the easiest one to get to. The others require much more dismantling and a few more man hours. Got the old core plug out too, amazing how much it had corroded on one side. Make sure you refresh your antifreeze/coolant regularly!!
  9. Thanks everybody. Took it along with the knowledge that it was the core plug. I was charged £40 to replace it, refill with anti-freeze and get rid of the airlocks. The last but took a while but it wasn't as disastrous as I first thought when I saw steam pouring up through the bonnet! Thanks again for all your suggestions. Super!
  10. Help required... Car details: Fiesta MK5 (2001) Endura-E 1.3 engine. Steam started coming up from under the bonnet yesterday and we discovered a small jet of coolant spraying from inside the engine. At first we thought it was the pipe heading in to the oil filler cap, but on further inspection there is a hole in the engine block which is spraying out water when the engine is hot. I've attached a photo of the offending hole. I'm sorry that there isn't much context to it as it's a bit of a close up. If you can't tell where it is I can try to describe it... As you look into the engine bay from the front of the car, it is on the right-hand side, vertical part of the engine block. What I ask is, how easily can this be repaired? Anybody with any experience of this? Cheers, Liam
