#453296 1.8 Tdci Running On Added 2 Stroke?

Posted by jimmygixer on 10 February 2015 - 01:13 PM

and the recommended dose is what 250ml per tank?

Im Curious what FOCA has to say on it now as well.im not to bothered about DPF or CAT clogging up :D but I really don't want to contribute to the carbon deposit problems the 1.6tdci has...

Yes 250ml a tank.

Not sure about carbon difference in dpf of cat, but this does run cleaner in your cylinders and i notice that i now dont ever really get any soot or smokey clouds under hard acceleration anymore.

Anyone know if the hex bolts in the handle holding the door card on the 3 door is a 8mm or what?

Seems like a long reach socket is needed.

Yes the fact that the 2T oil burns hotter and cleaner than the Diesel was why i thought it would be cleaner and not cause a increase in gumming & soot. I used to use alot of 2T oil in the past with the motorbikes, but i would never use anything but the best fully synthetic stuff and always the same stuff never mixing. So the mineral must of been invented for us diesel boys to mess about with coz it only blew up the bike engines really quickly as it was the only lubricant for the whole engine and alot of people skimped on it, but fine for the diesel me thinks.

2T oil is expensive enough, even the mineral stuff when you consider you are just burning it constantly, but 90% off injector cleaner isn't cheap and usually crap made sound good.

It works out for me about an extra 83p per full tank, not alot if it brings most of the advantages it's meant to, especially for extra reduced wear on those pricey pumps and injectors etc.It might give it that hint of 2 stroke smell also hopefully lol.

Iv'e 5l ordered of Comma mineral low ash 2T, will report back my findings along the way.

#295660 Front Shocks & Springs ?????

Posted by jimmygixer on 09 October 2013 - 10:46 PM


How come the zetec model gets sports springs and the model which is called the sport, doesn't get sports springs I wonder?


So the TDCi Sport 3 DR has the same springs as all the other standard diesels?

with the work needed to replace the front springs, and with the cost not to high for the shocks it would make sense to change both.

I agree, but im looking to get rid of this car.  It's one of the best driving cars iv'e ever had, but its also the worst car iv'e ever had. Once i fix one thing, something else goes wrong with it. I have spent a fortune on it and im fed up with it. Now i know why Ford parts are cheap, coz your buying them all the time. Most of my other cars iv'e had have been older than this and they haven't had the amount of rust and corrosion this car has, underneath and bodywork, and there is only 105,000  miles on it. Pity as i love driving the thing  :(
