#406719 That Little Round Disc

Posted by jmurray01 on 07 September 2014 - 10:41 AM

Bye bye tax disc
Bye bye fast hairdryers
And superhoovers ahah wat a planet

With regards to limiting the wattage on Vacuum Cleaners and people's negative opinions about that, I suggest you read this thread on the subject.

 

In terms of losing the tax disc, I won't be shedding any tears over it!!  I have a feeling though that it may make a lot of (stupid) people think they can get away without taxing their vehicle because it isn't visible. 




#406718 Scottish Independence Poll

Posted by jmurray01 on 07 September 2014 - 10:36 AM

to be honest guys why fix somethink that's not broken

If you don't think there is something broken with the UK then I don't know where you've been living, but from my perspective it is well past repair.

 

Independence is the only way to, put bluntly, GET OUR OWN WAY. 

 

One prime example is the fact that we have Tories in goverment now, if it was down to the people of Scotland only, Mr. Cameron would never have even came CLOSE to being elected - but because the English also had their say, we are now stuck with him.

 

I am an SNP supporter, but to be honest, I wouldn't mind if we got another party elected in an independent country, because at least then it would be a party that Scotland voted for fair and square. 

 

It boils my blood to keep hearing that we are "better together".  If that is really the case, then why aren't we better already!  And to those who profess that we are, I think you need to take those rose tinted glasses off and see what things are really like in 2014.

 

I am not anti-English, just anti-Stupidity, which is what staying in the UK is.

 

Needless to say, on September 18th I will be proud to vote YES.




#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.

#91682 Mondeo 1.8 Petrol Knocking?????????

Posted by jmurray01 on 06 August 2010 - 08:24 PM

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.
