Right then, just got off the phone, the prices are as follows...

Upto 18" £150 per set of four

19" and above is £175

If you want chrome effect add £10 per wheel.

 

All work includes repair and powder coating.

 

If you only want half the set done, split the price, lol

 

Generally speaking depending where you are the price would usually include removal and refitting and obviously collection :-D

However he says if you are outside of his typical area, he would arrange a deal on the price with you directly.

 

I hope this helps, if you want his details let me know. :-)

Sorry I didn't get back to your fella about the alloys Jos.  

 

This car is giving me a worse headache since then and I'm sincerely ready to drive it into the nearby canal.  

 

Upon starting the engine I have no throttle!  The time it kicks in varies from 15 seconds to 15 minutes!!  I got yelled down at a busy petrol station yesterday for not moving when my engine was idling!  Other than this fault the car runs great.  I am totally skint at the moment!  Does anyone have any ideas as to what may cause this?

when you say you have no throttle, you mean you can put your accelerator to the floor and the car proceeds to idle?

 

If you try to drive the car on idle (gradually bring up the clutch) does the car remain to idle and does the accelerator behave itself?

Yeah I have the yellow engine light on and if I floor my throttle no response until it kicks in and yellow light goes off.

You can sometimes raise the clutch slowly in first or reverse & that seems to do the trick but it doesn't work all the time :-(

Ideally we need trouble codes to help, do you have a code reader? or can you do the trip computer trick?

Tell me the trick and I'll give it a bash. I'm currently stuck in nursery car park until the damn thing decides I can have my accelerator. I'm ready to cry :-(

not much fun!

 

If you have the trip computer, turn the ignition to 0, press and hold the reset button until further notice. Turn the key to electrics only, if it works, the dashboard will do crazy stuff, the LCD screen will blink a few times and go into diagnostic mode. You can then let go, and press the trip reset button once each time to cycle to the next menu, if it works, you should find a DTC menu followed by some numbers if there are any error codes.

 

I cant remember, but I know someone managed to get into the trip computer, but I cant remember if it was a retrofit from a Focus, or just a standard computer in the mondy.

The throttle pedal is not connected directly to the engine like on an earlier (older) car, but is a potentiometer a bit like the mouse on a computer- you put your foot down, and you are only asking the ECU (engine control unit/ computer aka pcm (powtrain control module)) then, the ecu decides if the engine should get more fuel (accelerate) if the car has a fault, it may decide not to, (it has sensors on the engine, that monitor all types of things) this is to protect the engine from damage again, "limp" mode (limp home mode) is exactly that, if the ecu senses a problem that could potentially damage the engine, it runs it at a reduced level, to reduce damage to the engine but you can still "limp home" - once you have fixed whatever is wrong the throttle should respond as normal - it is also possible that you just have a faulty sensor  

 

As James has suggested, if you could find out if you have fault codes, it will help you find out what is wrong, rather than spending money you may not need to

Thanks guys for trying to help me but I'm calling it a day.

 

I managed to get it home after an hour stuck in a small car park with my toddler in the car.

 

First I had injector problems, then a blow out now this.  I've decided it's cursed.

 

It's going on Ebay at the weekend.

 

Should anyone on here fancy taking it off my hands give me a private message.  I'm in Leigh Lancashire.

 

It's a 5 door 2004 Ford Mondeo 2l tdci 130bhp hatchback.

No I'm sorry. I will have a look if I get time but after yesterday I was too fuming with it to bother. I just kicked it instead. £1695 down the drain hurts :-(
