    fieta 1.25 16v zetec
  1. i have a blown head gasket on my w reg 1.25 16v fiesta,i dont really want to shell out £400 to get it fixed as i will be selling it after,and i want to make some money on it,can someone tell me how hard it is to do one of these?also what would it be worth when its all fixed?it has 36k on the clock and in clean condition
  2. i wonder if anyone can shed some light on a overheating problem i have?recently after driving for 30 miles my car started over heating and when i pulled up to a slip road after exiting the m5 there was steam coming from the expansion tank,i took it to a mate who changed the thermostat and thought that would be the end of it.after driving another 30 miles it started doing it again,but this time i noticed the temp gauge had shot up to maximum,so i turned on the heaters to try cool the engine down, it was blowing cold air, but ten mins into the journey the air was hot.i eventually made it home but all the water from the tank had evaporated,the fan works fine.took it back to my mate who thought it might be the water pump,he took it off and said it was fine, does anyone know what else it could be?
  3. how do i go about doing that?and will it cause other problems?
  4. hi i have a problem where my w reg fiesta 1.25 16v stalls sometimes when i come to lights or a junction,it just seems to happen when its cold,sometimes the revs just drop until it nearly stalls other times it just stalls,i have replaced the idle controll valve but it didnt make any difference,has anyone experienced the same problem?
