#379551 An Update Would Be Nice! - Oh, And Not Joyriding My Car!

Posted by martyntdci on 28 June 2014 - 05:17 PM

what a !Removed! Muppet, it is a damn good job you had the CCTV James, it just makes you wonder what garages can you actually trust anymore....

 

that bloke needs locking up, all he prob will get is a fine, a slap on the hand, community service, and drivers awareness course....

 

what he needs is a 2yr ban, and be made a symbol off, IE 6mth in jail, with no exception for good behavior and not be able to work as a spanner anymore.....

 

i hope you dont have any nasty letters/bills coming thro...... a part of that vid think is was around 12 1/2 mins where a van try's to merge onto the motor way, !Removed! close that........

#378531 What Tyre Pressure Do You Run?

Posted by martyntdci on 25 June 2014 - 09:35 PM

1st your car has different size tyres on it, than when it was new.... the only 205/55/16 i can find is off a focus 2006 onward

 

yours should have 185/65/15 which state at 32 all round

 

205/55/16  should have 30 in the front, and 33 in the rear...........  for petrol

205/55/16 should have  33 al round if its a diesel....

 

hope this helps

#377991 Mk2 Focus 1.8Tdci Issue

Posted by martyntdci on 24 June 2014 - 06:25 PM

#377983 Mk2 Focus 1.8Tdci Issue

Posted by martyntdci on 24 June 2014 - 06:06 PM

ur right about the 1.8tdci its the best solid lump going...... if the injectors do go, then its only wear and tear.... the only thing i can suggest is good proper fuel, and maybe a injector cleaner of some sort, along with every service..... so like a bottle of red-x twice a year, and fuel filter once a year, oil/air filter n oil twice a year.......
