Hello again

Once again i have my weekend and yet what am i doing im always down the ford parts place before it closes buying various bits and pieces well i serviced my mrs car today and jesus christ im glad i did we just changed the oil and filter the oil was black and really like treacle lol

she said i thought oil was ment to be black lol

anyways

Oil 13.19

Oil Filter 2.74

Sump Plug (Comes with washer)

4.39

serive total 20.32

How about that hey for your first service not bad in all is it

there just seems to be a slight problem now the exhaust has started to make a popping noise like take it up to 3000 example and then it will drop revs but make a short popping sound my focus does this all the time but mrs fiesta does it now i dont worry about it as i know there is a stone in mine (DAMN KIDS) but any ideas what this could be u lot


P.s i will get some pics up of the manky oil lol

its just that poping is usually caused by unburnt fuel in the exhaust if the air filter was dirty it could of been !Removed! up the mixture its just the first thing to check before further investigation

I was thinking that i mean lets say i charge you 30 to change oil air plugs cos remeber i have to get rid of the waste oil properly now due to heavy fines

Matt
