#378517 What Tyre Pressure Do You Run?

Posted by jmurray01 on 25 June 2014 - 09:18 PM

The recommended tyre pressure for our vehicle, a 2000 Ford Focus 1.8 LX Hatchback running 185/65 R14 tyres is 32PSI front and back but I always inflate them to 35PSI.  In saying that though, by 35PSI I mean 35PSI on the tyre inflator at the fuel station, so considering the car has been driven over 10 miles to get there the tyres are probably at least 3PSI higher due to the heat, therefore making the "cold" tyre pressure around 32PSI which is correct.

If you can't find it then good luck is all I'm saying...  Rather you than me phoning the DVLA.

Well it seems others don't think the same! I've had compliments about the signature thank you very much.

It seems you are new to the forum, try and create a good, and friendly impression in future.

First of all, please don't use more than one question mark in a title. Second, your problem could be rod-knock, when the con-rods wear, usually due to the engine having high millage, being reved a lot, or having dirty oil. Though if it's more of a slap it could be piston-slap, caused when your timing is out. Try changing the oil and putting some oil additive in with it to help lubricate all the parts better.
