In Topic: Lights Upgrade For Fiesta Zetec S Ecoboost

Yesterday, 04:50 PM

If you want more light on the road the extreme-vision have won multiple times.


There's also Osram Nightbreaker unlimited (which are, according to most tests, just slightly worse than the extreme-vision) - I use these myself, and IMO they pack a lot more punch than the stock Philips in my Fiesta.

In Topic: Cone Filter??????

Oil filters need to be cleaned every X miles as MattDRX suggests - cleaning usually involves some sort of chemical fluid to clean it, and then you have to re-oil it again afterwards.


Also bear in mind most tests of these filters show LESS power than the stock paper filters - it's usually just a couple of ponies that escape, but I thought you might want to know.

My Fiesta does the same - haven't checked the exact location underneath, but it's roughly the same spot.


And as the others say it's the aircon condensator - perfectly normal.

Yeah I can see how that should get covered by warranty - my "issue" probably won't.


And I agree it's very dangerous to drive with unpredictable power.

Actually they did do some work to have it warm up faster as well according to Ford's press material: http://1l-ecoboost.f...stEngine_EU.pdf


"A compact cast iron cylinder block design 
features a small cylinder bore (71.9mm) 
and a long stroke (82.0mm), contributing 
to impressive torque figures. It’s also 
extremely strong, allowing a gap of just 
6.1mm between the cylinders – helping 
achieve faster warm-up and improved 
fuel economy."
But yes the iron will warm up slower than aluminium, and retain the heat longer.
