  1. Just today my fiesta mk5 has started to make a funny noise. Not all the time but occasionally, especially when pulling off on a hill, the car will make quite a low pitched drone for a second or so but then be fine once moving. Any ideas on what's causing this? Thanks.
  2. Hi guys, I'm new to these forums but wondered if you could help me out with a few things. I have a W reg mk5 fiesta. It all started a few days ago when the exhaust screwed up. Part of it was literally hanging off the car. I took it too one garage and they quoted a whole new exhaust. Took it somewhere else and they claimed all I needed was a new Cat Convertor. After agreeing to this and paying £200 I drove the car home. Once I got home i noticed something leaking from the bottom of the car. It certainly wasnt oil and so I figured they'd topped up my washer liquid as I new that had a leak in. The next day I took the car out and suddenly the red temperature guage came on and off every few minutes. After arriving home I noticed there wasnt a drop of coolant in the coolant tank and so im guessing this was causing the overheating. It was also making a very loud rattling noise when revving just before I got home. Do you think the garage have caused a leak? I've checked the oil and its still a dark black, and Im pretty sure it's not mixing with the coolant. I'm taking it back to the garage tomorrow. Shall I just fill the cooling system with distilled water for the drive there? Thanks a lot Alex
