Shouldnt really have a problem with it I dont think, I have never heard of an overheating issue with these.

 

An undertray would help to cut the road noise, as it stops the engine bay echoing it.

 

Great, ok thankyou, i may look at purchasing it, ill just keep and eye on the temp gauge.

 

Are they undertrays easy to fit ?? is it just a case of attaching it with the popper clips round the bumpers and wings?

 

Thanks

Would i have an issues fitting one to a petrol?? Overheating or anything?

 

Im just thinking there must have been a reason why its only deisels that are mainly fitted with them

 

Thanks

Mine is pretty quiet after its warmed up, even compared to other vehicles.

 

It sounds like a diesel though when it first starts, but I have heard its a common thing.

 

Don't you already have any of that soundproofing lining beneath the bonnet cover?

 

No, ford didnt put this in my vehicle so its just the bonnet.

 

I have found one at a breakers that want £20 for it.

 

Does this make much difference at all ?

If the car is misfiring you risk damage to the catalyst because of the unburnt fuel.

If the plugs are now fitted and gapped correctly I would suspect the ht leads - as you didn't have any problems before hand and you have disturbed them now.

 

ok thanks. Im going to give them a try.

 

Ive had to move my vehicle a couple of miles this morning, would this have caused much damage?

 

If does cause further damage to the catalyst, how would i know ?

 

Thanks

Hello. Thanks for the response.

 

Am i ok to move the car a few miles to the nearest place so i can get the bits for the vehicle

 

Is this going to cause many issues ?

 

Should i just replace the plugs, leads and coil pack

 

I understand the leads are just take off and replace and the coil pack has a few screws that need removing and just need to reseat the new one?

 

Any help please. Many thanks
