  1. it makes no difference you can buy the stuff and do it yourself but to be honest he some poorboys glaze then top it with poorboys sealant then a good wax like dodo juice hard wax or poorboys wax
  2. the truth is most fords are different ive seen 3 different colour looms on the mk1 so far it may be a case of try and test
  3. typical injector slap and no all cars tend to tell you to go to 6th at 40mph
  4. I doubt it would be that simple
  5. on my old mk1 I bought a Bluetooth mp3 cd radio USB steer from aldi and a dash fitting kit from eBay they old stereos are rubbish only issue I the steering wheel controls finding patch leafs
  6. some people are just a holes quite frankly theres no reason to touch other peoples pride and joy
  7. if I remember you need to remove the rocker cover pry out the old core plugs clean the area out and refit new core plugs but I'm sure theres a paste to put them in with to be honest most people have ford do it
  8. the speedo going is a vss but the dashes also indicate a cluster fault or battery issue 123 041 aren't dtc codes
  9. answered this before the fan resistor needs replaced if you google it you'll find plenty pics idle can't be adjusted so its either idle control valve or the ecu needs an update to fix the idle rear light just pops off the lens speaker requires the door card to be removed to get access
  10. start with the dash test to see if any codes are stored its in limp mode just a case of finding out why
  11. yet no one mentions verdestian sportrac 5 they narrowly missed 1st place and came 2nd in all the tests yet are a quarter of the price I had them all year round extremely grippy in dry or wet no understeer thanks to harder sidewalls quieter than the OEM tyres I loved them they beat all ure Avon continents etc
  12. it idles at 700 +_30 rpm so revs are normal if its like that at cold then likely the idle control valve is faulty revs should at cold sit at over 1000rpm and drop slowly
  13. cars run way hotter than they used to so its not unusual on a hot day after a drive you'll cook an egg on it without any issues if there's no smoke or flames don't worry if there is run lol
  14. mk2 was the same
  15. at ford not cheap the easiest method is to drop the rear subframe unless fitting poly bushes they are called rear upper trailing arm bushes if fitting OEM bushes you should replace the arm as they bend too easily
