In Topic: Ford Sierra H Reg 2Lt Gls How Much Is It Worth

20 November 2015 - 01:55 PM

At £1000 you have probably not lost anything on the depreciation over the past 10 years.  I sold a 10 year old car 10 years ago for that amount and if it is stil running reasonable I would expect to have to pay the same to get it back.

In Topic: 1.6 Tdci Loss In Power, Excessive Fuel Consumption

What about a Terraclean session which is a bit more expensive but I have heard great things about?  If you go with the BG244 can you post some feedback as to how effective it really is, even its in a month or two to give it time to work? 

In Topic: Pipe Can Someone Identify This Please

The plastic bit which clips that end of the pipe onto the engine block seem to snap easily - mine is currently held on using cable ties.  I've never seen one with the end nearly torn off though, someone must have pulled and twisted that really hard for it to happen!


I don't know if its possible to buy just the plastic end bit which is held to the rest of the pipe with a metal band or jubilee clip. 

In Topic: How Long Have You Owned Your Car And How Much Have You Spent On Repairs ?

28 September 2015 - 07:52 AM

Depends on what you mean by repairs - including services and wear parts like tyres, filters etc or just unexpected problems?  Bought my 2007 Tdci at 1 year old and driven 110,000 miles.  the only real unexpected repairs have been quite minor like new battery, reverse switch, glow plugs and excess on a new windscreen, so total about £350.  If you include services and more hefty preventative maintenance like dpf removal, egr delete, timing belt then it about £3500 which I don't think is bad for the time I've had the car or or miles its done.

In Topic: Hardwired Dashcam & Sat Nav Mk2.5

28 September 2015 - 07:35 AM

I took 2 USB feeds from the same piggyback fuse tap - just used a standard connector block as a splitter. Then I ran one cable round to the top of the windscreen for the dashcam and the other behind the dashboard to come out in the dashtop cubby for the satnav.  The combined power of the two isn't very high so no problems with capacity.
