Topics I've Started

New Car

06 June 2010 - 08:15 AM

Just bought myself an 06 ford focus Tdci Sport, with only 30,000 miles, one owner which was an elderly couple, so the back seats have never been sat on.

I paid £6500, thought this was a good deal?

Electrical Fault??

11 May 2010 - 05:40 PM

Had a problem with the starter motor on my mondeo, after taking it off, the cog which connects with the flywheel had sheered off. the cogs on the fly wheel were fine. Ive now replaced the starter motor bu when I turn the ignition on, the rev counter, speedomiter, fuel gage and temp gage all go straight over to max then back, then when I turn the key further to start car it makes a screeching niose from the starter motor but dosent turn the engine over..

can anyone shed any light on this?

Mondeo Tddi 51 Reg Non Starter

11 May 2010 - 06:20 AM

Hi all

Over the last few weeks when im starting my engine, every now and again it makes a sqeeking noise but once started its fine. Then yesterday at work after it started it continued to make that sqeeking noise, it was a bit like a belt sqeeking. after a few mins it stopped sqeeking. I drove the car home which is a 25 mile trip, then when I tried to start the car this morning it made that squeeking sound but with out the engine actually turning over and then it wouldnt do nothing except show ignition lights.

Would I be correct in thinking its my altenator???

Mondeo Heating Problem

20 February 2010 - 07:59 PM

Ive got a 51 reg Mondeo TDDI,
Whilst I was driving it a few days ago the heating was set to hot but was only producing cold air, the temp gage was at half way as normal but still cold air coming through. After 5 minutes it started blowing warm air as normal. Today it happened again, the car had been running for 3o mins so it was fully warmed up, but again blowing cold air continuous but this time it didnt warm up at all.

Can any one shed any light on this
