  1. Kpgs Mk3 Focus Titanium

    Yea I'm thinking I probably shoulda just got them to do the brakes too. Ah well, not too big a job to get done at the weekend I spose. Even this morning, the difference is unreal. -1 outside and cars starts and idles perfectly, even when switching on both heated screens. Pull out of the drive and up the hill, perfect, no flat spots or dodger acceleration. I am happy. Sent from the pub with a pint in the other hand.

    Getting them sorted by the mechanic next door to work. Mates rates and all that :) Sent from the pub with a pint in the other hand.

    Got the car back. Praise be. Power update seems to have made quite a difference. Idle and acceleration is a lot smoother, also there's more power available down low in the revs. Ok, it's still underpowered, it's still a 1.6, but it's not stupidly underpowered anymore. It's about an 8 miles drive from the dealers back to my house so I had a good blast on the way home. Definitely feels improved, feels more refined. Idle is even quieter, I didn't think that was possible. I'm sure it's not just placebo either as I've been driving the wife's MK3 Diesel while mine was away and that's plenty powerful enough. If I'm happy with the power of mine after driving that, then surely that's saying something. Happy boy over here. Sent from the pub with a pint in the other hand.

    The levellers should look similar to this: It's about 40/50mm long. Your stock headlight should have these if your bulb height is adjustable from inside the car. Sent from the pub with a pint in the other hand.

    Left the car out this morning and went over the problems I've been experiencing with the car. Thankfully I handed the keys over to an older gentleman, who was their head mechanic, and not a work experience child. Got a phone call about 3mins ago, the lady was advised to tell me that they're installing the PCm update that's available to see if that fixes the power issues, £82 for front brake pads, £27 for new wipers and then the standard cost for the service. I said no to both the brakes pads and wipers cause I'm pretty sure I can get them done elsewhere for a lot cheaper. So the full service and update is costing me £213. That sound about right ? Seems a bit low ? Not that I'm complaining. I hope that update does fix some of the power issues, if not all. Sent from the pub with a pint in the other hand.
  7. HID HELP

    Looks similar to the connection on my old MK2 Focus headlights, that was for the bulb height adjustment motors. Did you swap your levellers over to the new headlights ? Sent from the pub with a pint in the other hand.

    I've got the car booked in with the local stealers for next Wednesday. I described the trouble I was having and the guy seems to think it could be ignition related.m but he won't know for sure until it's plugged in. Fingers crossed it gets sorted during this service.

    I did the jet wash last night. The video was taken this morning. I had the both heated screens on when this noise was happening. Sent from the pub with a pint in the other hand.

    Lol I hope not. It'll be long dead by now after that wee blast I had ! Sent from the pub with a pint in the other hand.

    Yes checked everything. No splits or leaks, oil looks and smells good, coolant is fine. Sent from the pub with a pint in the other hand.

    So this happened when I started my car for the first time today: Really making me worry now. Car was dipping in and out of limp mode/low power mode as I drove it. Once I had stopped and restarted the car, and gotten up to temp, all seemed fine. Sent from the pub with a pint in the other hand.
