  1. mk1 1.8 petrol focus misfire

    only use genuine ford or Bosch leads other leads cause the coil pack to fail also make sure you gap the plugs to 1.0mm this is also a must to prevent coil damage
  2. fords like rust so any paint damage will rot with 8k budget why not look at other makes with 5 yr or 7 yr warranty since the focus will be out of warranty now if you want a focus the theres plenty on the market ide walk away from that one. as for warranties I've had warranty direct which is a good one it covers everything from wheel bearings to springs keys and audio and covers wear and tear on all the items as well and any issues found on a service or mot its only worth it though I the cars under 8yr old and 70k miles
  3. Engine running with key not in car

    where do you work lol I need a new car since its that easy to steal ill take ures lol
  4. Dashboard testing a 55 plate Zetec climate

    its the volume of fuel passing through the pump not sure what unit its measured in
  5. mk1 1.8 petrol focus misfire

    if the issue is with a lead and you replace the coil it will ruin the coil same with the plugs etc so as a rule of thumb you replace all the coil is £30 plugs about £12 the leads are more expensive try the coil and plugs if the misfire is still there you'll need leads
  6. mk1 1.8 petrol focus misfire

    yes its an earth point the coil packs a known issue go to ebay you'll get a Bosch coil pack which is what ford use cheaper also ide replace plugs and leads
  7. odd dial reading

    not really its a ford cold weather makes the dash cluster slow n lazy ....its a bit like a pensioner I think most of the time its fine but occasionally it goes a bit senile then remembers what it was doing
  8. Rattling noise when clutch pedal is depressed

    release bearing rattles not whistle or howl could be the dmf either way its a whole kit as I said no point changing any gearbox parts without doing all the parts so clutch release bearing dmf labour etc
  9. usb & music

    simply put the focus is way behind the times despite other cars having it standard since 2008 usb and aux is rubbish all you can do is turn the volume up n down if you want to be able to control it via the steering wheel you'll need a new stereo a patch lead to make the steering controls work
  10. Mk2.5 to mk2 rear lights

    they're the same lights only the wiring can be different on some but I think that's just st to non st the mk2.5 is identical except the front n rear bumpers bonnet and lights and the boot is a different shape other than that they are the same car
  11. Rattling noise when clutch pedal is depressed

    its a whole gearbox out job front subframe needs drooped so a big job even in the uk its around £350-600 to have done hence why I said its better to replace the clutch and release bearing no way of telling how long it will last it coil go tomorrow it could go next year when it does go that's it you're stranded
  12. Rattling noise when clutch pedal is depressed

    sounds like the clutch release bearings on its way out new clutch kit time I think
  13. Focus Service light in Petrol cars...

    I see the point in just one of those people that thinks cars aren't cars anymore I want well built cheap to fix reliable car not a twin clutch flappy paddle car that you need to talk to in the hope it might actually understand what you said that's just to change a radio station lol
  14. engine malfunction warning

    never heard of the other code either irs not a ford or generic code so ide have the codes te checked on other software
  15. Focus Service light in Petrol cars...

    personally they're a waste of space tyre warning systems are just a distraction any driver should know just from the steering uf the tyres a bit flat and should check them weekly a service indicator agains a waste of time shouldn't be hard to figure out when 12mnths from the last service was calender link? I use my car to Drive my windows phone does all That for me
