In Topic: Starting Problems

I also have a 56 plate 2.0tdci, which had exactly the same issue 3years ago. I replaced the starter motor and the difference in starter cranking speed was immediately noticeable. Not a sniff of trouble since. Starter was £140 from ford and 30mins to fit.

In Topic: New Tyres

08 January 2014 - 04:43 PM

When we bought our s max 2years ago the garage fitted accelera alpha tyres to get it through the MOT. I seriously urge anyone not to fit these tyres to the front of the s max. In the dry they are fine but are lethal on wet roads. It will seriously comprise the cars handling. I changed them to michelin and the difference was immediately noticeable.
Budget tyres may be cheaper and the car my only be used around town but I speak from experience on this. You will regret it.
