Metal Squeeky Noise

21 July 2015 - 11:20 AM

Today when I was in a car park I noticed that when I turn right there is a sort of metalic squeeky noise but it did it once then not again it's intermittent, I have heard it a few times when going along but it's not that loud and it's not constant I'm wondering if it's brakes or steering related everything is working well and there isn't any play in anything so any ideas would be welcome.

Can't Bring Myself To Change My Fez

27 May 2015 - 08:41 PM

Funny as this sounds I have seen a 60 plate fez zs for a decent price @ 22k miles but my little 1.4 flame is a beauty I can't bring myself to let her go at the young age of only precisely 31851k please give me sympathy and laugh at me.

2L Focus St Vs 1.6 Fiesta St

19 March 2015 - 09:38 PM



To cut this short i am slowly bringing myself round to spending a lot of money on replacing my humble old ginger mobile and im sort of very much a car guy and i have decided i want Poooowwwerrrrrrr, any how im also as tight as hell, both cars are sitting at around the same price at the moment in the jolly Cornwall and Devon dealers, obviously the Fiesta is more economical but which is the better buy overall, i always had a thing for the Fez ever since it was announced a coupe years back but now the prices are so close its become more of a challenging question. What do you lot reckon?

Local Dealer Offering 10% Off Of Everything With Loyalty Card.

17 December 2014 - 11:33 AM

I got real excited on Monday when I had a letter that looked like a bill but in fact was a loyalty card for previous customers from the local ford dealer, anyway reading the letter it says everything from new and used cars are included which leaves me with a wallet squeezing dilemma :lol: they have 2 focus ST'S an 11 plate and an 09 the 09 has been mountuned and would be about 8499 while the 11 plate would be 9495 or near enough both have under 30k on them, however there is also a 2013 zetec 1l ecoboost that would cost 7945 after trade in aswell and that's done just 18k the sensible part of me says take the ecobubble it's a steal the raging young man that I am says get the ST though, the real question here is was it right of them to send me a loyalty card and give me this sort of a problem just before Christmas? :unsure:

Battery Voltage Query

25 November 2014 - 02:01 PM


This morning I thought after a hellish frost it was a good time to check my ginger monsters battery when I did it read 12.3v bear in mind this was after a 3 mile journey last night and about 20 minutes idling to de-ice the car, this morning I went on it must have been a 15-20 mile thrash, the alternator is working well pushing 14.5 on idle, I stopped the engine and left it for about 5 minutes and checked again and the voltage seemed to be holding on well to 12.7v do you reckon the battery is alright but depleted due to a sudden drop in temps and a few short runs?
