  1. Currently driving a mk1.5 focus 1.6 zetec petrol, car has been brilliant but clutch is starting to slip, therefore I'm hoping to get rid of it fairly soon. With regards to its replacement, hoping to go with another mid sized hatchback, what are your thoughts on the 1.6 petrol vs 1.8tdci focus mk2? Or even a mk5 1.9 tdi golf?
  2. I drive a 53 reg 1.6 focus zetec, which unfortunately broke down the other day. I own a diagnostic tool so checked the problem and it showed issues with the throttle positioning sensor. I called the recovery people and this was confirmed with their more expensive diagnostic tool. The bloke that came also said that the exhaust was blowing before the cat. I have ordered a new tps and was just wondering if this will solve the problem. Also fuel economy has been very low recently. Thanks
