  1. Oil Leak, Gearbox

    As Argen suggested, the cover was very easy to remove (most unlike modern stuff) :) I attach a picture below ... looks to me like I've a rather tricky to fix leak coming from where the gearbox linkages enter the gearbox, I guess there may be a seal I can replace or some magic stuff I can add to the gearbox oil that will rejuvenate the seals and gaskets :( I really wish the gearbox had a dipstick too so I'd have some idea of any fluid loss Any advice very welcome
  2. Oil Leak, Gearbox

    Just replaced fan resistors, fan now works on all speeds, air con l;ight doesn't mysteriously go out. But I'm unconvinced air con works, no doubt that a seperate issue!
  3. Oil Leak, Gearbox

    Thank you so much for your reply Arjen. I see you've made some interesting mods to your Fusion! I'm am off to clean the offending area now, I will update as things progress, I'm in no hurry as I have another car I'm using until the Fusion is sorted :) x
  4. Oil Leak, Gearbox

    Hi, hope I'm doing this right as I'm new to this forum. I have just bought a Fusion 2 TDCi with zero history and 108k miles. I've been cheaking it over and preparing it for use. Whilst engine sounds lovely (as lovely as a direct injection diesel ever sounds) it's clear the car has been run on a tight budget by an uncaring owner (filthy interior, cheap tyres, oil looks dirty, etc) Faults/issues found so far: 1. Weird noise from 'clutch' as u pull away, disapears when clutch is fully released. Assuming clutch release bearing , not overly conserned, I'm assuming it'll get a lot worse before it's terminal! 2. Fan only works in position 4 & engaginging 4 extingishes the air con light I'm assuming 4 only simply means the resistor pack has overheated and blown its thermal resistor. I've located and removed this (omg it's well hidden), I didn't bother testing it, just ordered a replacement as they so cheap. I've also cleaned the pollen filter as I'm aware these are often the cause of the resistors overheating (I will replace this very shortly when I give the car a full service). Hopefully air con will be ok once the replacement resistor arrives. 3. I understand the timing belt is 150 000 miles/10 years changes, so I guess it's never been done. Is it worth changing the water pump at the same time? If it brakes; is it a dead engine, or is it a 'safe' engine? 4. I seem to have an oil leak from the gearbox area :( See picture below... Any ideas? Is there a gearbox dipstick? Thanks, Daisy x
