  1. Thanks for your help guys, that has helped put my mind at ease a bit!
  2. Hey all! My 1999 Ford KA2 is due for it's MOT in feb, I have been looking at last years certificate and am wondering about the advisory on it 'Both rear shock absorber top mountings worn acceptable at time of test' Has anyone had this before? and what would be an average cost of fixing this? I can't ask my mechanic as he's off work at the minute and will probably (hopefully) only be back just before my test is due. Thanks in advance for your replies KitschQueen xoxo
  3. Hey Would that be the same for a 1999 Endura-E engine? My handbook says 15w30, my Haynes manual says 10w30 and halfords recommends 5w30 so I'm a little confused any ideas?
  4. Thank you to everyone for your help I decided to leave it as you pretty much confirmed what I was thinking but am hopeless at decision making so needed a bit of a push lol Thanks again!
  5. Hey all I'm not a KA owner just yet but am hoping to be! I'm currently in the process of trying to find one and thought I'd found a brilliant one at a reasonable price but after looking at it's past MOT it has a number of advisories which mean not much to me. Basically I was wondering if anyone could have a look at them and tell me how much repairs might cost or whether it would be better to avoid the car altogether... Brake pedal has slight side movement indicating a worn pedal bearing or pivot Nearside Front floor Suspension component mounting prescribed area is corroded but not considered excessive Offside Front floor Suspension component mounting prescribed area is corroded but not considered excessive Nearside Rear Suspension component mounting prescribed area is corroded but not considered excessive Offside Rear Suspension component mounting prescribed area is corroded but not considered excessive Nearside Front Suspension arm rubber bush deteriorated but not resulting in excessive movement Offside Front Macpherson strut has slight movement at the upper attachment Both outer sills corroded This is on a 2001 KA Collection, any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm not very knowledgeable with cars and don't really have anyone to help me. Thanks in advance. x
