Ann, you should be fine with Delphi arms but Stef was right when he commented about cheap aftermarket arms. I've fitted a cheapy replacement lower arm to a Ford Ka many years ago, only to find it lasted about 8 months.


In Topic: 2.0L Turbo Diesal Struggles When Raining/surface Water

15 January 2015 - 06:33 PM

About 5 years ago, mine had a problem starting and I noticed air in the transparent lines. I checked for leaks and replaced the fuel filter and a few other things but then discovered that it wasn't air in the clear fuel lines but water. I had recently changed job location and started using a different filling station. Once I stopped using that filling station, the bubbles went away and the car has been fine since. Obviously there was water in the filling station diesel tanks.

 

Maybe you are somehow getting rainwater into your fuel tank?

Out of interest what is the ecoboost like?

Nice. My wife has one and its great to drive. Engine is not too far short of my 2.0 TDCi Focus performance wise but the Fiesta handles better.


In Topic: Coolant Leak

I would say you would be fine with the repair. Do the repair, run the engine and if leak free.... set off for the garage. Keep your eyes glued to the temp gauge and perhaps stop half way and check coolant level.

 

Alternatively, order the part and fit it yourself at home. good luck.
