Need A New Battery

29 September 2014 - 08:04 PM

Got an 55 plate 1.8tdci,does it need a calcium battery?remember reading a while back about them having smart charge or something.

Europarts have battery for like £53 but it doesn't say if it's lead or calcium.

Input Shaft Worn?

Had the seal changed on the gear selector rod couple of months back as it was leaking,Attached File  ImageUploadedByFord OC1410444591.915315.jpg   91.34KB   23 downloads

It's begun to leak again just as bad,was told it may be the input shaft that's worn so isn't sealing? Did a little google and they're talking about pressing the clutch and a noise goes away,well mine does this too.

Could an input shaft also cause judder on pull away as I think I need the clutch doing aswell.

Is This Normal Of An Egr Blank?

Was taking off the right angle intercooler hose as it's got a split in it,noticed the residue around the egr valve Attached File  ImageUploadedByFord OC1410429429.474020.jpg   99.29KB   10 downloads

On the note of the hose though,the long one I repaired with gaffa tape and a hot glue gun has lasted over 6000 miles and is still going fine aha
