Has Anyone Tried Terraclean ?

15 May 2012 - 08:16 PM

Hello,

I am curious having seen the Wheeler Dealers programme, regarding the TerraClean product of decarbonising the engine on a car.

I had a look on the net, and I contacted the UK people via the website, I was given a few places where they do this, the closest being in Birmingham and Nottingham. The place in Nottingham Tuna Motorsport will do the procedure for £70 plus vat = £84. It takes one hour apparently.

I am interested as it apparently cleans the engine, engine respone is better, as is economy.

Having just had a full major service on my 03 plate 2.0 petrol Mondeo Mk3 I am interested as to any members on here who have had it done and what their impartial view on it is.

I am not connected with the product, agent or garages that do this so I have no links to it, but I would like to be informed prior to spending the money and having it done, if I indeed opt for it.

Thank you

Mondeo Mk3 Black Headlights For Swap/sale.

14 May 2012 - 09:56 AM

I have a 2003 Mk3 Mondeo. I have the black headlights which I did a year ago. But I am now seeking a change. The height adjusting motors work fine, there are no splits or cracks to the lenses. I would like to swap these for a standard set of headlights plus £40 cash. I am in Northamptonshire but could arrange for Leicestershire/Rutland area. Photos are of actual lights on the car. Call on 07957 660049.

Ford Mondeo Mk3 Rear Lights Upgrade Free.

01 March 2012 - 08:05 PM

This is a free upgrade for the Mondeo Mk3 Hatchback.

As you will possibly know the rear tail lights comprise of three bulbs, 2 5 watt bulbs and one 21 watt / 4 watt bulb which is dual filament shared with the brake lamp - 21w.

The 4w part is obviously dimmer than that of the 5w bulb.

Having unsuccessfully tried to obtain a 21/5 w bulb with OFFSET lugs, (you can buy a 21/5w with lugs 180 degrees apart - opposite but not offset.

So, get a 21/5w bulb, file off the top lug, the one closest to the glass, then using the original 21/4w bulb as a reference, put the new 21/5w bulb into the holder, the correct way.

And there we have a circle of red light equal all the way around, no dimness, whilst still retaining the 21 watt brake light bulb.

PLEASE CHECK YOUR LIGHTS BEFORE SETTING OFF, ENSURE THE BULBS HAVE BEEN FITTED THE RIGHT WAY ROUND, AND THE LIGHTS WORK PROPERLY. FOLD THE SEATS DOWN, AND YOU CAN SEE THE LIGHTS THROUGH THE BLACK PLASTIC COVERS.

Leaking Yellow Air Con Lube Focus Mk1 2.0 16V

07 February 2012 - 12:35 AM

My year 2000 Focus 2.0 16v is leaking oil, it is quite apparent that it is the yellow lube oil from the air con compressor. As there is no oil that clean or colour, in the engine, gearbox, brake system or power steering.

I have replaced the O rings with the correct green O rings and of the same dimensions. The system refilled. However there is still fluid sitting on the bottom of the compressor, Looking at the prices of a compressor circa £400 Euro car parts, I guess I will be getting one from breakers or similar, can anyone reply if they have had a similar issue, what the problem was due to. I am not aware of any reputable specialists in the Northants area, so if you can help that would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Which Aftermarket Panel Air Filter?

25 June 2011 - 10:02 PM

Hi,

Can anyone personally recommend a performance panel air filter for the 2.0 16v Zetec Focus on a W plate. Instead of replacing at the usual service I would like to wash through and re oil if necessary depending on the filter manufacturer.

I know that I will get very little in gains, but if running the car for many years and paying circa 8 for a filter then it will work out cheaper, based on 35 for an aftermarket filter. If I were to go down the road of induction, I then have to get cold air feed, possibly less miles per gallon.

Thanks
