Failure To Start Everyday

08 February 2015 - 04:10 PM

So my reliable rock splid never have much wrong woth focus 1.8 petrol 04 focus has developed a fault. I had a proper battery check and a replace battery message was shown so I put a nee bosch s4 in an 075 battery bigger and stronger so I was advised at eurocarparts. I had it checked as starting was a issue several times a day. The first start of the day it reguses to start with a turn of the key but if I start it with my foot on gas pedal it fires up. Throughout the day it does this too, sometimesnjust starts or needs gas. I booked it in at the garage and they found no fault. I asked what was checked but the mechanic who did it left that day as it was his last day.

So just wondering if anyone has any ideas what I can check to see whats up ?

I have some play on my arb bushes just wondering as it looks very space limiting in there how simple these are to change.


I had a look for a guide on the how tos but couldn't find any, Haynes is a bit  basic.



Clutch Squeal Squeal

If  I lift off the clutch a little fast there is a squeal sound each time, just wondering if this is a sign of a worn clutch, biting point is just over half way and on 70k now I think roughly.

I was just wondering when changing the motor do you have to remove both scuttle covers or just the driver side to remove the wiper motor linkage ?

'park' Function On Wipers Fault

08 March 2014 - 08:26 PM

Apologies for new thread tried posting on precious thread but says error.

Basically every wipe setting bar quick wipe the wipers refuse to return to the bottom of screen they just stop. You have to quick wipe to rectify.

I swapper relays around no change stoney says its likely the wiper motor, awaiting delivery.

I was just wondering what controls the park ?

Is it the relay, motor or wiper switch.
