#366080 Fiesta Mk7 Cooling Fan Issue?

Posted by Nathan_M on 20 May 2014 - 10:52 AM

Stop start in hot weather will make the coolant hotter as the air flow through the radiator is next to nothing, I'm not sure what the engine temps have to be with diesels to engage the fan with a petrol it's usually 95-105, if it's a hot day in stop start either suffer with hot air blowing at you with the windows down or use your air conditioning as it forces the fan to run no matter what, and a good hard blast on an A road or dual carriageway will not do any harm at all anyway.

#335113 Clutch Ajustment

Posted by Nathan_M on 22 February 2014 - 07:41 PM

They're both common concerns on the fiesta the gearbox is to blame and my fiesta that shares the same box is similar best fix for the reverse issue is to push the clutch to the floor push the stick into 3rd then straight through to reverse it slows the gearbox down, you may also find that the clutch bite sits higher up the pedal travel all of which are normal for Ford's hydraulic clutch system and gearboxes.

#332067 Spring Worry.

Posted by Nathan_M on 13 February 2014 - 04:50 PM

No I mean from the floor, I have been out again on what might be the roughest lane in the world and it's still fine so I reckon its either a flukey pick up or old piece from the old springs, looking at the rust it appears old rust aswell because I have felt the bottom mount and it's not broken the top appears fine too and it's sitting level so it looks like I got over excited over nothing. Haha

#331063 Heat Shield Damaged By Flood Water

Posted by Nathan_M on 10 February 2014 - 10:57 AM

Easier than you think to smash into a puddle, I had some sideways action the other night, was quite exciting at the time not so funny when you think about it, I must admit it proved to me that I can control the little fiesta, it also serves as a warning not to under estimate standing water and to keep your eyes open, the one that got me was hidden in a shady dip in the dark so no hope of seeing it. Keep safe on the roads at the minute guys.

Its just from the short cycle of a short journey the water goes up as the oil warms and it never gets warm enough to evaporate, go on a longish journey every week or other week and it will stop, in the summer it won't happen anyway, look through the filler cap if the tops of the cams have the milky !Removed! and it's completely brown then you have a problem otherwise just keep on trucking.

#323766 Cold Start Issues And Clutch Problem 1.4 Zetec 2003 Help! :(

Posted by Nathan_M on 20 January 2014 - 11:56 AM

I'm more inclined to say the clunky clunky is the selector bushes mine does it when cold but I wouldn't say I'm having to rev or release the clutch differently just pull the gear stick a little harder, haha. The more people tell me the clutch bite is high the happier I feel that mine isn't the only one.

#323410 What Would You Consider Fast? 70Mph - 80/100/130/150/200Mph?

Posted by Nathan_M on 19 January 2014 - 07:44 AM

It puts the limit into perspective when my 1.4 fiesta has no problem in sitting at 90 or a 100 maybe more with another lump of lead in the work boots.

#321924 Duratec 1.8 Pfi Engine

Posted by Nathan_M on 15 January 2014 - 10:56 AM

Has it been raining since it started and is the lower belt cover missing? It would seem the belt is slipping and when getting wet that would make it worse, they put a cover on to stop road moisture from affecting the belts though, or perhaps you had a lot of electrical devices running and that put extra strain on the belt, you could with the engine off and the keys in your pocket give the belt a push with your finger, it shouldn't move more than about an inch at absolute maximum, if it does then that'd what is making the noise and it will need tightening.

#319452 Brake Problem Help!

Posted by Nathan_M on 08 January 2014 - 08:52 PM

As above its just the rust and oxidization rubbing off, although if it doesn't wear off after a few stabs of the pedal i would perhaps lean towards having the discs and pads checked by ford in case the discs have warped or the pads are worn unevenly, best thing to do if possible after leaving the car for a couple of days is to use the brakes quite hard the first time this normally clears mine.




#317296 Quick Clear Windscreen

Posted by Nathan_M on 03 January 2014 - 12:03 AM

If you mean misted on the inside it wont work very well because the heated elements are closest to the outside surface the system is primarily used to partially melt ice so it can be removed as slush with the wipers, if you read the manual for the car i think it recommends the demist only fan position position 2 and A/C if available for the quickest demisting of the window.

I'd love to read the insurance report.


That little box won't be big enough for all his explaining, shame people can't look after things this is the ruin of Britain my generation can only break things and never fix anything, I would be too embarrassed to have even record that.
