Petrol Pumps Keep Clicking

02 April 2014 - 11:42 AM

Hi all,


Recently I put in a bottle of Cat Cleaner on my MK1 Focus, don't ask me how but the little plastic top of the bottle shot off and into the petrol filter/tank.


Ever since it's taking me a lifetime to fill the tank because it keeps clicking as the petrol can't flow as quick.


So, the question I'm asking is, is there an easy way to get access to the filter to remove the little plastic top?



Dashboard Lights & Needles Playing Up

09 January 2014 - 05:40 PM



I seem to be having problem after problem with my current motor.


Recently when I've gone to start the car up only 4 out of the full dash lighting up appear (oil, handbrake, engine & another light).


When it does this the needles don't move either, even when I pull away they all stay at the bottom.


I have to keep turning the key back and forth before they all light up and go off and the needles swing round.


When the needles do go round it resets the current mileage count?


Any ideas what could be cauing it?

Oil Drops & Rises

02 January 2014 - 06:59 PM



Not sure what's going on with my engine's oil.


I checked it the other day in the morning (hadn't been driven for around 12 hours) and it was at the bottom of the hi/low meter.


Went to work then checked a day after (12 hours non-drive too) and it was in the middle?



Does it slump in the cold or anything?


Not sure what's going on!

Dials Not Working

07 November 2013 - 11:03 AM



Went to go to work this morning, the car fired up fine but none of the needles on the dashboard moved.


Tried a couple of times and still the same thing so I popped the bonnet and leads seemed okay, tried again and worked?


This happened a couple of days ago but the battery light was flickering last time, so got the battery and alternator checked, nothing wrong with them.


Difference being, today the battery light didn't appear?


Just a funny 5 minutes or something else?


Thanks in advanced.

Orange Warning Light (Tire)

04 October 2013 - 09:36 AM



Earlier today an orange warning light appeared and stayed on my dashboard.


It looks like a tire with three lines coming off of it.


There's also a button next to my handbrake with the same symbol.


It's a 51 plate 1.6 Petrol Focus.


Looked at the manual online and it isn't on there.


Any ideas?
