Granada blowing its coolant

10 December 2009 - 08:48 PM

I'm replacing the headgasket on my 1993 granada 2.0 DOHC, as the coolant is over pressuring in the header tank.

I was wondering if there is a bimetallic strip in the heater that only allows water/coolant to flow through when the engine is warm or is it more likely to be blocked. I know it isn't passing through as I checked the temps of the inlet and outlet by touch and the outlet was still cold. Also I've tried to blow through the pipework and had nothing come out either.

So is it a new matrix or is there a heat controlled valve?


Mondeo Mk 3 Central Locking

20 November 2009 - 09:56 PM

After some help or advice. I have a MK3 mondeo and the central locking has stopped working on the left hand rear door. Is this a common fault? Is it likely to be the door itself or the drivers door as I know this controls the whole system.

Cheers for any help given

Mk3 Air Con

15 July 2009 - 07:27 PM

I have a Mk 3 Mondeo on an 03 plate. I noticed recently that the heater was constantly blowing cold air and am about to replace the thermostat as a matter of course. I found out last night though that the a/c compressor is running when the engine is on despite the a/c button being switched off. I removed the fuse in the battery fuse box and the compressor turned off, i swapped the relay with the horn one as they are the same to see if relay was at fault but it wasn't. Can any one help?
