Rolling Road In Lincoln

03 May 2012 - 08:25 PM

Hey, Just a heads up, New 4WD rolling road due to be opening in June at PK Automotive if anybody is interested, I know that there arn't many places around lincoln to get your car on a dyno, also do remapping now, and trust me, it's good!
Also, if you fancied a trip and a day out, JS performance next door who sell top silicone hoses. Thinking about getting a nice set of green hoses myself, just a shame the only trips I seem to make are back and forth to the supermarket. But yeh, hope this helps!

4Wd Dyno, Lincoln.

Hi there, bit of a heads up really, hopefully of use to somebody (not a shameless plug, honest! )
Soon to be arriving at PK Automotive Solutions, a 4wd rolling road in Lincoln for dyno runs and club days :).
I know it might not be everybodys "thing", but there really are not many places in this neck of the woods to get your car properly tuned.
Hoping this is of some use, expected opening of the new rolling road unit in about a month, so will report back with more details and offers then!

Thanks :)

Mk7 Heater Controls, A Little Stiff!

09 January 2012 - 08:59 PM

Hi there,
today I took my beloved greenthing into my local ford dealer to have the fan controls looked at.

Basically, when the fan speed is set at 1 or 2, and then you change the temperature from cold to hot and vice versa, all works smooth and the dial does not stick in the slightest. However, the problem comes when you ser the fan speed at 3 or 4 and then attempt to change the temperature, it is as though that little dial does not want to move. Definately worse going from hot to col, and there is a certain point about 2/3 of the way around where it hardly moves at all. Also can hear the heater flaps moving around a lot at this point.

Long story short, feeling as though my freindly neighbourhood ford branch are fobbing me off. They say they have compared it with other models and they are all the same, which im not 100% convinced is right, as im near sure this is only a recent problem im having!

So really, lovely knowing ford people with mk7 fiestas, is this normal at all!?!? Im half hoping it is, half hoping it isnt?! Working at a garage, im near sure it should be and that this will probably lead to problems in the future, but a warranty is a warranty and they should honour it. :)

I'm sure you guys will be a considerable amount more help than Ford.
Thankyous in advance :)!
