Urgent Please

08 September 2010 - 06:31 AM

Please can you help my new focus 2003 mp3 has a problem.
when driving at 60-70 mph the car seems to wander about the road its worse when cornering its like sitting on a jelly whats wrong?
the car has done 49500 miles passed its mot last week no advisories . I took it to be tracked yesterday it was 14 out not sure what that means the garage also put a new drop link and a suspension joint . The tyre pressure is ok the garage checked them but as soon as you drive the car the tracking goes off the garage tracked it 3 times yesterday whats wrong and where would you guys start looking please.
im scared to drive the car as the wondering is worrying!!!!!!!!

Thanks for your help.

guys do these engines run hot 1.8 16v zetec the car temp always stays in the middle the coolant bottle rises to max but not over its just that the engine feels excessively hot and I can hear the water gargeling no mix of water and oil or loss of power like i said it stays in the middle the needle on the temp section.
my celica GT4 runs hot buts thats putting out 330bhp and of course thats a different animal.

Thanks for your advice / suggestions
