  1. Wrong Oil?

    I was yesterday at the mechanics to replace the oil and filter. He told me that he have Ford oil, not to worry. I thought as I already talked to him before that he has Motorcraft or Ford oil but ... I come back and he gives me rest of a 5L Total Quartz 9000 oil (5W-40). Well, how?! It is this oil: http://www.totaloil.com.au/Pages/content/NT0000C302.pdf Oil is for Citroen, Peugeot, BMW ... but no for Ford and it does not say that it'sunder the specification WSS-M2C913-B, but only ACEA A3/B4, and Ford bible says: If you are unable to find an oil that meets the specification defined by WSS-M2C913-B, you must use SAE 5W-30 (preferred), SAE 5W-40 (except Flexfuel vehicles) or SAE 10W-40 that meets the specification defined by either ACEA A1/B1 (preferred) or ACEA A3/B3. Using these oils can result in longer engine cranking periods, reduced engine performance, reduced fuel economy and increased emission levels.What do you think? Should I remove this oil out and change proper oil?

  3. Looks Like I'm Leaving :(

    Hey (first things first, I can't log in to my standard account? Everytime I go to re-login through facebook, I just get 'error'. Therefore I've created this account. If anyone can get me back in to my old one, or an admin can give me access or reset my password, cool!) However, time for the bad news. Having passed my test four months ago, and getting myself a Zetec Climate 1.8 2006 - A 68 year old man did me the pleasure of a head on collision before forcing me into a parked car on the left. He's admitted full liability. But £5500 worth of damage later, it's been declared a total loss. :( Now, the insurance company are in the process of sending me my cheque, and when they do - I've got seven days to return my courtesy car - 5 of which will be clearing for my cheque. Therefore, I've got two days to buy a car. I'll be honest, the only cars I'm finding for £4300ish are Vauxhall Astras :( - I know how you all feel about Vauxhalls. I don't really want anything older than a 56 plate, and I want less than 60k miles, preferably three door, so it does limit me :( I've been offered £800 cash in salvage for my car, should I take it? There is no chassis or engine damage (apart from the power steering pump bracket) - just a shed load of front end work. Pictures enclosed :(
