#387278 Does The Fiesta Store Driving Habits ?

Posted by SandyCat on 18 July 2014 - 02:20 PM

It connects to sensors in the seat and if you clench your bum cheeks it will switch to sport mode with increased torque and a higher fuel to air ratio and crank up the stereo with some serious drum and bass..

 

But if it senses a fat ar5e after you have just been to McDonalds it switches to lazy mode, puts on some soul music and lowers the window so you can lean your elbow out and do a slow nod to the girls. 

 

Bl00dy clever these cars.

I know this sounds rude but why do people have these lovely cars then screw around with them??

I think the limit is how much your pants fill up before you give in and have to stop.




#385599 Thinking Of Buying A Fiesta St

We do invoice for less than £150.     It may be against forum rules to do this in the open so I will private message those who have asked so far with quotes/info and anyone else who asks.  Thanks.

Peter you are right there a several different types of GAP policy and the dealer is the most expensive place to buy it as they make enormous commission.    But you should read the small print of the one you are buying to make sure you understand it.  If want any help just message me.  We sell GAP and I am happy to give you advice regardless of where you buy it from if it helps.




#384932 Car Not Pulling But Steering When Off Centre After Front Tyre Change.

Posted by SandyCat on 11 July 2014 - 03:22 PM

LOL No!  That is not the way you do it !!   You are masking all sorts of problems that could be lurking in the steering geometry.   You could have the steering rack biased to one side and just re-centre the wheel to disguise it. This is not the cure!   You centre the wheel by adjusting the front geometry to the manufacturers intended settings.    

 

Remember the old Minis that you saw crabbing down the road because they just got all 4 wheels pointing in the same direction without lining them up with the body !

 

Unless.........Clive was joking of course ha ha

That doesn't cause the steering wheel to be off centre.   They have pulled the track rods out of alignment by being heavy handed.




#384549 Awful Day, Advice Needed! (Turbo)

Posted by SandyCat on 10 July 2014 - 11:58 AM

When you get a new turbo fitted make sure the oil feeds are working properly or the new turbo will fail very quickly.   A common cause of turbo failure is wrong grade/dirty oil and oil feed blockage.




#384232 Dump Valve?

As soon as I hear a dump valve certain words and phrases spring to mind LOL  :)

That's no good.  I can still see some of the car.




#382597 1 Month Old Ford Fiesta Ecoboost

Obvious suspect is the alternator.  Maybe first take it to an independent garage that knows what they are talking about and get them to do a charge test on it (but don't have any work done) then get back to the dealer.

Sounds like a connection behind the dash is not staying live when you switch off so it's resetting.




#379398 What A Waste Of Two Young Lives!

Posted by SandyCat on 28 June 2014 - 09:19 AM

That's what I mean.  1mph is a speed.   

 

It's 'excessive' speed that is the danger but you wondered why cars have such high top speeds and my point is if the max legal UK speed is 70 and you can die at 30 there is no point restricting top speeds of cars unless it's to crawling speed.




#379389 Think Ive Had A Speeding Fine Refunded

Dammit Clive I was going to wear my special pants for you when I was next down in Devon too.     :(




#379388 What A Waste Of Two Young Lives!

Posted by SandyCat on 28 June 2014 - 08:45 AM

Not much point to be honest as you can die at 30mph so even if they restricted top speed to 70 it probably wouldn't do any good.    

It's not the cars or the roads that are dangerous but the person behind the wheel.
