  1. What i laugh at are the people who moan on about a few MPG less using "INFERIOR" fuel who then get in their car start it,fidget about for ages before they move ,make sure the kids,dog,shopping etc are all in place,adjust the rear view mirror and countlesss other things then pull away.START IT LAST
  2. Yet another stupid,money maker from Ford.Make sure the socket is the correct metric size,not an A/F equivelent one and that it goes all the way on.If the nut is really tight the sides round quite easily if not done correct as i found out,
  3. I thought that only the Focus back axle was adjustable,Think i would be asking the garage what they did for their money
  4. Ratchet worn ?.I was always told to hold the handbrake release button"in"when applying the handbrake to stop wear on the mechanism.Now people just pull it up making that horrible noise.
  5. Had my Fiesta into a main dealer yesterday for the second service and was given a list showing what to do if the car breaks down and whats included in the cover.Never had to ask for it
  6. This country cannot financially afford mass lmmigration.I have not paid taxes etc all my life for Hospitals,pensions,and much more to have them taken from me when i am going to need them.My retirement age has been put back because the government cannot afford to pay it but suddenly can find millions of pounds a week to keep thousands of migrants who are going to lower my standard of life.Charity begins at home.
  7. You dont need the multiplier,you can do it by degrees according to Haynes.Had a Suzuki S J years ago and that was so simple to change,Progress ?
  8. As it spins at 250,000 rpm flat out,failure will be sooner than later
  9. I understand what danny91 means.When i start up my non turbo 3 from cold in the morning,the first time i hit 2800 rpm it feels like a turbo kicking in.It only does it once and runs great for the rest of the day.The next morning it does it again .Is it something to do with the ignition timing.
  10. They have the same power as a mk 1 xr 2 which was anything but sluggish. If you want a bit of power and speed forget the 1.0l ecoboosts and get an st model.As the old sayings go,There aint no substitute for cubes/The only thing to beat a good small one is a good big one :D
  11. The 1.0l in the Fiesta is a non turbo 3 cylinder and called a Duratec ,Ford confusing people by keeping old names for new engines.
  12. Ecoboosts do come in Zetec trim and all the 3 cylinder Fiestas have stop/start which you either love or hate.Just read the 3 cylinder non turbo has not got the D M flywheel,one less thing to go wrong.
  13. Because its adjustable
  14. 1.0l non turbo 3 cylinder
  15. Dont worry if yours has not got it,my 2013 zetec has and i cant see the point of it.
