Fuel Filter Drainage

23 May 2015 - 03:15 PM

Hello members, I have a Fusion 1.4 tdci. I fitted a new fuel filter at 55k . Haynes book recommends draining every 12.5 k. I tryed to drain it but nothing came out. So I removed drain plug and noticed that it dosent have a hole running through it even though it is designed to attach tubing to it. Also no fuel came out of filter with plug removed. I think there is no hole through to where fuel sits. I didn't want to make a hole in case bits of plastic enter fuel feed and block injectors. The filter is a pattern part and not a genuine Ford item. The filter is not due to be replaced until 93k. Is it really important to drain the water out of the fuel. ?

Gearbox Oil Change

23 August 2014 - 10:41 PM

Hi members, i have a 2006 cmax 1.6 tdci zetec with 5 speed manual gearbox. Gearchange is intermittently notchy. I want to check the gearbox oil level and to change it too.Please can anyone provide a link so i can see exactly where the level and drain plugs are. Also i think there is a filler plug on top of the gearbox with access made easier by removing air filter box, but this is unconfirmed. I need more information as i dont have a workshop manual.

Pollon Filter Change

09 August 2014 - 09:38 AM

Hello members, i recently bought a cmax but the owners manual and radio (ford6000cd) manual were missing.I want to replace the cabin air filter and have been viewing utube videos.Apparently the job is much easier if the multi wired plug is disconnected from the fuses carrier under glove compartment. But doing so will interrupt power to the radio . A radio code will then be required. In order to find out the radio serial number the radio must be pulled out requiring 4 special keys that i do not have. Does anybody have a link where i can get a code just using the vin number on car body ?
