Topics I've Started

Heater Matrix Size

02 March 2014 - 10:34 AM

This is a wierd question really but on Friday I was ferrying people around in the fiesta and it had reached operating temperature for around 15 minutes of driving, I parked up and went to a shop which was about 30 minutes when I got back in and started her up it was down to the single large bar it soon returned to operating temperature, I drove about half a mile to pick someone up from another shop and while waiting I had the heater on full blast and at about half way hot the temperature gauge kept changing from operating temperature to the single large bar for about 5 minutes of idling, so how big is the heater matrix to actively cool the engine so easily and how long does it take to fully warm the little zetec se engine up properly?

Spring Worry.

Very exciting stuff, driving home from work about 20 minutes ago, and clunk, I gave it her a little wiggle and all seems well, when I arrived home I looked in the arch to see what was going on and I found a little souvenir perched between the plastic guard and chassis, I have looked bounced and wobbled and it doesn't seem to belong to me I think anyway the noise made must have been this piece from another poor souls front end, pictures below show the piece and where I found it aswell as my front spring.Attached File  1392307471133.jpg   83.68KB   53 downloadsAttached File  1392307453344.jpg   64.04KB   53 downloadsAttached File  1392307432876.jpg   63.41KB   53 downloads

Me Again.

Okay just listen to the clip and see if you can hear anything funny, I keep on forever expecting something to go wrong, not sure what the sort of rattle is, might be the exhaust but I couldn't tell.

Next Generation Of Computing.

Hi, im still going on about what to buy and what not to buy and after deciding that the next generation games consoles are a bit wet and floppy, i begun searching for something to fulfill my geeky needs, what are your views on this?




I see this as a genuine future of the desktop PC, laptops are all ULV CPU driven now and so suffer in terms of power and with the tablet boom they are all either tablets or hybrids, im wondering what you lot think, without everyone blasting build your own, i would be interested to know what people think of this particular machine.

Just Returned The Xbox One, What Now.

02 December 2013 - 12:56 PM

I have just launched my xbox one back to amazon because of a fault and have opted for a refund, I think I'm changing direction here, my 360 is fine enough for me, I'm torn between a mac mini i5, vaio l series all in one or an alienware x51 to do a combination of the 2. I'm the most indecisive person in the world.
