  1. Makes sence now. I just could not understand why readings where so low. Thanks for the explanation :)
  2. Just had my MOT done on a 1.8i ford focus 2002 reg with 80,000 miles. It passed :-) What I am struggling to understand is the following (I have looked for this info everywhere but can't find it) MOT print out is : FAST IDLE TEST PASS ITEM ........................... ACTUAL ....................................LIMIT RPM .....................................M.CHECK ...............................2500 - 3000 CO......................................0.00 % ....................................0.20 MAX HC........................................1 PPM ..................................... 200 MAX LAMBDA .................................1.00 .......................................0.97 - 1.03 NATURAL IDLE TEST ITEM .........................ACTUAL .......................[u]LIMIT RPM.................................M.CHECK...........................450 - 1500 CO..................................0.00 %......................................0.30% Does this mean the car is producing no CO2 or am I just reading it wrong ?
  3. Hi All I am new to this site and wondred if anyone may be able to point me in the right direction. I own a 1.8 Petrol Focus 2003 Reg. Unfortuantely recently I have been having the following two issue. 1 - The gearbox ocassionaly gets stuck in gear and in many ocassions I have got stuck at traffic lights due to not being able to release the gear from eg 3rd in to 1st. After 1 - 2 minutes of having the engine switched off the gearbox is perfectly fine and smooth and the problems may not comeback for another 1-2 days. 2 - The cooling fan comes on 10sec after starting the car from cold and keeps kicking in every 2 minutes at 3 to 4 minutes cycles. I am really not sure where to start looking for the problem :-( I have even made sure the aircon is off as originaly I thought the fan was linked to that but no luck..
