Pipercross Air Filter

02 March 2015 - 12:53 PM

So this weekend I managed to partially service my Focus, I say partially becuse i started with the Fuel filter which was a MASSIVE BALLACHE! Followed the Haynes to the letter but the Jeffing thing just would not start, I sucked a lot of diesel Thursday :censored:Anyway i got a mate from a garage down the round to come have a look and they undid each injector seperatly and crank it over to expel any air then used a can of easy start which got the engine goin and its been fine ever since. Rant Over


I got the chance to fit my Piper Cross Air Filter and my what a differance it has made.

The old filter was pretty dirty

But a nice clean foam filter has made a massive differance, It picks up so much quicker now it feels completly different. I would defo recommend this cost £50 but when you look at the better MPG its all worth it.

Did a run from my home in Weston to Paignton Zoo (82miles) and this was the result

i (tried) maintained 65MPH the whole way so i'm pretty happy, its currently sitting at 57MPG  which isnt bad for only a fuel and air filter change.


To finish the post here is a picture of a goat I took from the Zoo

Potential Alternator Problem

07 February 2015 - 10:26 PM

Hey everyone.

A little while back I posted about my car just dieing completely no power at all. A new battery fixed this.

Now I am getting the same ghost like noise coming from the engine bay (like a whooooo) at low rev. So not turbo relegated.

The battery light has come on and when the car is in test mode it's showing as 12V. Car is running pretty lumpy and power steering is feeling heavy.

I've been told maybe the alternator bearing have gone.

Anyone had similar to this?

Pipercross Or K&n?

Should I Have To Pay?

11 December 2014 - 02:53 PM

Hi All,


Last Saturday my battery died and was dead for a few hours before i got a replacement,


Radio now wants the security code and ive looked at the sercurity code card that was with the Handbook and its blank.


Ford want £30 and i have to book it in for a 5 min job! I dont really want to pay this as it should have been provided when i bought the car!


Should i have to pay this? Im going to try and get to my local dealer this weekend, I know all you need is proof I own the car nd they get the code from the ford system so a bit miffed it needs to be booked it although the call centre said it needs a 'reset'


This happend to anyone else?
