New Hose Only Needed I Hope?

12 May 2015 - 05:45 PM

Noticed my coolant tank was very low earlier so topped it. But have now found the cause.

Is this just a case of a new hose needed?

Power Steering Fluid

Mk6 fiesta flame 2004 (04 plate)

Anyone know much about the fluid to use top up please? I noticed it was low whilst checking oil and screenwash levels. Doesn't appear to be any leaks from first look.

Fiesta handbook says it needs to meet Ford Specification WSA-M2C195-A but when I type this into ford parts uk website it says its red power steering fluid. the fluid doesnt look red inside the power steering filler tank??


Under Engine Cover - Focus Mk2.5

Hi guys
Anyone know how easy this panel is to remove?
Can it be done without jacking car up as It looks like its only held on with screws? I just need to check for any oil leaks as checked my level today and it was quite low, only had service 2months ago and it had 4.3ltrs according to paperwok. I just topped it up so will keep an eye on it, but from 1st view looking over the back of the engine towards the panel, there is some sort of residue on the panel, so my first thought was oil!! Just wanted to take panel off to have a quick look but don't have any ramps,to put car on and only got the crappy wheel jack

2008 Intake Manifold Runner Control

Well, almost exactly a year to the day without this issue happening, it has come back tonight on journey home.

Having been in stop/start traffic for 20mins or so and then pulling away in 1st, 2nd gears from traffic lights, car held back and wouldnt pull away properly, it continued to do so until arrived home luckily only 10mins away. no engine light tho!! turned off and left car for an hour, re started and took out for a spin and hey presto its back to normal, accelerating through gears is fine!

So, when this issue happened last year it had just been serviced, new sparks, air filters, oil etc, and funnily enough its just had a its annual service a week ago, again new sparks, air filter, oil etc!!

But when above issue happened tonight it hasnt lit EML and triggered the p2008 fault code, but the driving symptons were exactly the same, so definately an underlying issue somewhere.

I've have found some links to this fault code, and it mentions solenoids. does anyone know Where and what do these look like?

Links to what I found on google,search are here
