I thought so, I was reading it like 'what the hell is this guy doing?' im not a member of the forum it was on, which is no doubt for the best with advice like thiers lol.

 

Its always best to have it warm slips out nicer that way.

Hi all,

 

Just looking for some quick advice, I am going to service my Focus myself for the first time as the service plan i had just wasnt looking to be the value for money they make it seem.

 

I serviced my old astra and corsa before that so have a good idea what im doing haha :P

 

Just wanted to know about engine flush as i read somewhere this is a good thing to do with diesels. How does this work/how do i do it?

 

I'm going to be getting the following Oil http://www.eurocarpa...71b30e30

 

Is that suitable?

 

Also i hear the oil filter is in a rather silly place, i havent looked myself but is this true?

 

Thanks

With the ignition live guide I made you can always keep the camera running with engine on by leaving the ignition on. There is an option for a 10 seconds delay before shut down after power loss, this will allow you to switch off your engine and switch ignition back on without disturbing your camera power flow.
 

Sent from my GT-N7105 using Ford OC mobile apI

 

 

I shall have a look at this guide

Don't have a mobius, but I recommend you have it running when the car is running really...  If you're stopped in traffic or something and you get rear ended or someone rolls back onto you...

 

I know, the only way that i have read to ensure its on always is to press the record button at the start and end of my journeys, but knowing my luck i will forget to turn it off one night and the battery will die :P

I have noticed that the way i have it set up it will stop recording if stationary for a few minitues but starts as soo as you set off again.

 

I wouldnt know how to wire an ignition live lol

Do you leave your dash cams on permenantly? My folks bought me a Next Base Halfords Dash cam which is really good i'm just not sure if it would drain too much power if left on when not using the car?

 

At the moment i have it on motion sensor so when ever i pull away it starts recording.




#392950 Should We Trust Garages?

Posted by WAZ91 on 01 August 2014 - 10:34 PM

Through my work I see all sorts. Most commenly salesmen pressuring vulnerable people into taking cars that just arnt suitable for them because it's been sat on the forecourt for a while.

But brakes and pads most common as we cannot acctually see the car so have to trust them.


#392661 Should We Trust Garages?

When we get MOT requests come through i'd say 90% of them request brake discs and pads on top! its an easy way for to make extra money.




#392646 Should We Trust Garages?

Posted by WAZ91 on 01 August 2014 - 09:50 AM

Hi All,

 

Im sure most have read about what happen to Jeebs in a previous thread and I too have a story to share about a garage.

 

It didnt happen to me personally but through my work I deal with people buying cars and also dealers that sell them.

 

I had a call from a customer who was due to take their vehicle in for a service but was nervous taking it to the garage she got it from (we lease disabled people vehilces) whilst asking some questions she advised me that when she went to test drive a car the garage didnt have what she was looking for in stock.

 

They did however have someone elses in for an MOT which the salesmen swiftly grabbed the keys and took the customer out in someone elses car! the customer wasnt to keen on this but the dealer informed her it is fine and they do it all the time!

 

After seeing the other thread and being made aware of TWOCing  i advised the customer of this and that she does not have to go to them and that she should probably look at going to tradeing standards.

 

It seems that dealerships and garages do take a bit of liberty with our cars so im happy ive got my dash cam in now as ive lost a lot of trust in them.
