  1. Mk3 Fiesta 1.3 Sx

    My first car was a Nissan Sunny (ugh) bought for 120 quid.. But I actually used to drive around my mums Mk3 Fiesta 1.8D because she never used it. Heavy beast it was. No power steering. No nothing. But the Mk3 Fiesta has awesome visibility for a new or learner driver. I kinda miss that car. Your SX looks in awesome nick mate :) Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  2. Fiesta St Loud Tapping Noise

    Mines quite tappy at idle. I just thought it was normal. I've got a strange faint clattery sound when I boot it. Only initially. Once the revs get up it goes away.. It's worse when I use cheap supermarket petrol. Oh and my ST illuminated sill plate on the drivers side only half illuminates now. Hmm. :( Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  4. Question For Unleaded Owners

    My Mountune'd ST pinks occasionally on standard fuel. No problem with the more expensive stuff. Dunno about MPG really. It's to variable according to how far I plant my foot. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  5. Gear Change Ratios On Petrol Version

    If you're driving too slow in too high a gear it actually harms MPG because the engine management system is dumping in loads of fuel to stop if from stalling. I found the best way to drive my 1.0l Zetec S was to tank it up to the speed limit then change up to fifth. There was a thread on this ages ago. Oh and Fiesta's do have 6th gears... Fiesta STs anyway. :) Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  6. Oil Over Filled

    Every time whatever car I've owned has come back from a Ford service it's always been over filled with oil. I don't get it. Haha. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  7. Zetec Ecoboost

    My Zetec S one litre hated reverse gear. Noisy as hell and burning clutch smells ahoy. :-/ Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  8. Obd Security 'databloc Ford Protection'

    Exactly. So pulling the fuse should theoretically be enough. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC

  12. Best Polish/wax To Use Opinions

    Currently I'm using: Ultimate snow foam Gyeon Bathe+ shampoo Gyeon Wet coat after wash treatment Gyeon Tire They had an offer on the Gyeon stuff. Haha. The base of this though was a thoroughly and carefully washed car. Clayed. Polished with Meguiars Ultimate polish. And then waxed with Autoglym HD Wax. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  13. Fiesta St Time!

    50 on the motorway in 6th really does boost up that mpg figure. !Removed! average speed cameras on the M60 :( Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  14. Fiesta St - 1St To 2Nd Gear Change

    I have to be careful too in the ST and I've been driving years. Mine's quite "clicky" when changing from first to second. Apparently it's something to do with the dual mass flywheel. *shrugs* Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  15. St3 Morphing Into St3 Mp215

    Very much so. With the window down you hear all kinds of sounds. Around 1700 revs a strange "wooing". Above 2200 the "suction" noises start. And then when you lift off a loud PSSST. Haha. It's quite addictive. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
