Rev Counter Does Go Above 2000Rpm

28 August 2011 - 06:28 PM

Good evening All,
I need your help, I bought a secondhand Focus at the weekend and I've noticed something only after taking it for a test drive. When I drive, no matter how fast I'm going the rev counter doesn't go above 2000/2500 rpm. To make sure the rev counter needle does work while in neutral I press on the accelerator and it shoots upwards.
I'm taking the car to a local mechanic during the week, he suspects it could be the throttle body but without looking at the car he can't be definite.
The gearbox doesn't feel as smooth as a new car, the car's only done 50k miles and its a 2003 Zetec 1.6 Ghia, could the gearbox have anything to do with the rev counter? I hope I am not needing to replace the gearbox.
I am now realising why I've always prefered to buy cars from Ford dealers but on this occasion finances are tight especially with the imminent arrival of a baby, aaaaaargh!
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
Thank you

My Pf Mag Featured Fez - For Sale :(

02 August 2011 - 01:17 PM

Good Afternoon All
WHy is it you spend sooo much money on modifying a car and then months later you need to sell? My wife and I are gonna have our first baby and I need to get a baby friendly 4dr car, sadly the 2dr Fez isn't practical. I sooo wish I kept the car factory standard - a lot easier to sell.
Any way, if theres anyone that would be interested in buying my car (see pics on my gallery) or know of anyone please forward them my contact details:

I mentioned in a topic a couple of months ago that my car will be featured in Performance Ford, just to let you know the magazine will be coming out next week, please get yourself a copy or pop into your local WHSmith and have a free read while standing at the magazine racks (thats what I usually do)

Thank you

Castrol Magnatec 5W30 A1 For Fords

22 June 2011 - 09:08 AM

Good Morning All

Just in case your car is due a service, I wanted to let you know that Tesco are selling 2L bottles of Castrol Magnatec 5W30 A1 fully synthetic oil for 8. You need 5L for an engine oil, baring in mind Halfords sell a 5L for 46.99, I think 6L (3x2L bottles) from Tesco at 24 is a bargain.
Get down to your local store before stock runs out!
