  1. Mk2 Ford Focus 1.8 Tdci Sport Clutch

    Car has covered 102k and recently the gears have become very stiff and the clutch slips when the turbo kicks in. Also there's a noise when the engine idles. This all points at a new clutch however I'm confused it may be something else as the biting point isn't high at all?
  2. Replacing Rear Shocks

    has anyone replaced their rear shocks themselfs? got a quote from a garage for £130 a side which seems very excessive as the rears are stand alone and theres only two bolts holding it. Are there any guides available? might have a go myself
  3. Strut Mount Front Near Side

    Just had my car serviced and the garage advised i needed my top strut mount replacing. Do i need this doing ASAP? it only rattles at low speed on a full left hand lock, normal driving conditions it doesnt seem to make a sound. When i bought the car i noticed it looked like someone had been taking the top mount off recently (my guess is to bodge it with grease) and it looked crossthreaded. The car had a full MOT when i bought it with no advisories. What can i expect to pay for a replacement?
  4. Poor Mpg?

    Cheers, Every time i fill the car i hear a rush of air is this normal? also the fuel gage sometimes drops to half when i have a full tank, 10 minutes or so later it will go back to the full.
  5. Poor Mpg?

    Thanks for the reply. This is my first car, previously was on a motorcycle for 4 years which you could ride as quick as you wanted and still returned 45mpg.
  6. Poor Mpg?

    i'm getting like 37mpg is this normal? my car is a 2004 fusion 2 1.4 Duratec. Most of my driving its dual carridgeways and i'm frugal with the throttle.
