hopefully my leads don't need replacing n i'll just get a coil pack ordered soon n get it fitted before the month is out

 

 

i think its snowed here near enough every day for the past week or so. had a few clear days then the other day its just done nothing but snow again.

 

this is what i'm currently looking out at

 

 

not the weather for changin coil packs lol or hydro dipping for that matter  :(

I did it when it was 4 times that deep blowing a blizzard i just stuck a big towel over the bonnet with some pegs holding it on and crawled under thats no snow thats just a bit damp you english a tell ya lol

Bosch made the whole ignition system for the car and the ford leads if you look have a small white logo thats the bosch logo so £27 buys all 4 bosch leads if they did need done

lol it was worse than that but it started to melt n now its started snowin again. i'm not fussed though i would go out n do it in this, but i need to order it n get it delivered first lol

 

i'm just more annoyed that i aint been able to do any hydro dipping cause i've got it all sat waiting to do but i need a dry warm place to let it all dry n harden for a few days

cant do it inside mate cause its a very stinky process n the last time i did it inside the whole house was full of fumes n every one was choking

 

i can get away with bringing the sprayed part inside to do the actual dip as long as i'm quick but the activator even takes my breath away even though i wear a mask

 

but as far as spraying n leaving to dry its gotta be outside in the shed

Problem solved chuck em all in the shed and use the house lol an extension cable and a small bnq £7 heater would do it or would you blow up from the fumes

Passenger side rear speakers caput and i really cant be bothered taking the door cards off and drilling out rivets etc so i was gonna extend the wires from the passenger and driver footwells to the rear and stick a set in the parcel shelf no biggie ill just pop the stereo back out again

Can anyone please help me I'm female and know nothing about cars and what Im actually on about!! I have a 1998 Ford Focus and a few days ago started to judder, lose power and engine smelt terrible driving back home. My dad thought it was the coil pack as cylinders 1 & 4 wasn't working, so I went and got a new coil pack, that was fitted and still 1&4 not working. He had a small code reader that was plugged in under the steering wheel and the cod PO351 came up. Anyone know what to try next?

thats a signal fault from the coil pack wiring plug it was common on that year and needs the wiring checked as it was prone to splits ford actually sell a new piece of wiring to repair the broken ones also cheap coil packs dont work on the focus genuine ford ones give less hassle also you should change plugs and leads as a faulty coil will damage the leads so you put a new coil in and the leads cause another misfire and ruin the coil pack again did he clear the original code first as well if he didnt then the car thinks its still misfiring try clearing the fault and see if it comes back first
