  • Ford Model: escort 1.6 lx zetec

Posted 22 April 2009 - 09:42 AM

New to Escorts ( from vaux corsa ) and I will be spending some time generally maintaining my new ( to me ) escort.

1.6 lx zetec SEFI 5 door hatchback

It had been standing still for 12 months but started 1st time..
New plugs , engine flush and oil change so far.

Will be looking at auxiliary drive belt this weekend as there is a low bassy "thrumming " underneath the general engine noise....just wondered if it had been affected by being stood still for so long..

I would like to know if there are any greasing / oiling points that I should know about as i can't find anything in my Haynes manual.

Can you grease wheel bearings and if yes is it easy ??

Would the standing still affect the gearbox oil at all?
