  1. lol it aint worth all the hassle might see if it needs to be topped up one day
  2. lol ha ha :D Many people swear that their gearchange is smoother after changing the oil, but 30% of Americans claim to have been abducted by aliens! :P i done some research yesterday and found it holds 2.3 ltrs and its a ib5 box only way to properly drain is to pop the drive shafts, but i did read somewhere that you should just top it up doesn't really need changing , the mtx 75 box you can drain. saves me a job then ^_^
  3. not sure mate it is weird to explain Anyone know how much gear oil these hold ? And also where is the drain plug hole on these boxes ?
  4. me too mate it had been done before i brought the car only had it about 6 months now, Parked in a garage most of the week as i have a work van, it was on the way back from a 2 hour drive (motorway) went around a roundabout and it didnt want to go into 3rd after i got annoyed with it and rammed it in it was ok, but it always has been a bit notchy, i should start by changing the fluid i guess easier route. that must of made you a bit like me yesterday ;) What is it with fords and that anoying reverse gear always wanting to play about i remember this from a 97 escort i had
  5. Hello all new to the ford forum :) hope you can help with this niggle, driving around today and 3rd gear seem to a bit difficult to engage. The other gears seem a bit notchy too when selecting, there is no whining or any other noises the reverse gear is also a bit dodgy to select some times. would this be gear linkage ? or can you adjust these ? when i had my seat leon you could lift the gaitor and lock the gear knob and adjust the cables, can you do this with the fords ? or would a fluid change sort this problem out ? ive had a search on the web and not much comes up about the mk2 focus just the mk1 its a focus 05 1.6 zetec petrol 5 speed box its done 34k had a new clutch at 16k Thanks in advance
