Posted 31 March 2009 - 03:44 PM

best make this my first post , just bought a mondeo 2.0 tdci ghia diesel , some minor problems , but overall very happy with it. Always been a ford man, my first car was an escort eclipse
1.3 and i loved it, learnt alot about cars messing with this one and it ran perfectly for over 8 years, then 2 focus cars and now the mondeo . I do like to do my own maintenance on my cars , there was a period of time where i stopped, and started to take them to garages, biggest mistake ever!, some never stop trying to rip you off.
hopefully i will be able to help some people out on these forums, and they help me.
so hi everyone, im looking forward to getting to know people, and if anyone wants a free haynes manual for a ford focus (S to Y reg ) in very good condition let me know and i will send it on to you. :rolleyes:

Have something to contribute?

hi steve , i went to ford and got a new hose , my wife won't let me start on the modding again, one small thing and i don't stop, i modded my escort alot and have spent alot on cars down the years , and money spent on rip off garages , i could tell you some right horror stories we have been through mate. i think the car is 130 hp with it being a ghia x but im not sure yet. ive always looked after my cars and this one is the best ive had by far, i had a look at your website and i must say , it looks pretty impressive , if i can twist the wifes arm i would'nt mind popping in so you could tweak the car a little bit, and thanks for taking the time to reply, cheers.

no prob mate and thanks for comments on site, if your engine cover doesn't have a sticker on telling you bhp, stand at drivers side of engine and look where the head meets the block and it will have a sticker there stating what power it is.. :)
