I've got a Tasmanian Devil. I'm getting one more done soon for my Mum who died a little while ago.

Faulty idle control valve.
You might get away with removing it & giving it a clean with carb/brake cleaner.


#475584 Engine Swap

Posted by AdeMk1 on 12 April 2015 - 03:56 PM

The Puma engine is a popular conversion, but I'd go for a 2.0 Zetec, or if you want to do it properly, a Mk1 Focus RS 2.0 Turbo.
Anything is possible if you have the money and/or skills, for instance I know of a KA fitted with a 2.5 V6 Vauxhall engine.
Don't forget to check with your insurance how the changes would affect your premium, that could well scupper your plans!
My Turbo converted Mk4 Escort Bonus was dearer to insure than a proper Mk4 RS Turbo, they don't like you messing too much.

#471937 Vauxhall!!! Grrrrrrr!!!!

Oh the irony lol, you driving to McDonalds and your car being the meat in a Vauxhall sandwich!
I predict you'll come back as the manager of the local Vauxhall dealer :)


#471205 Fuel Pump Fuse.

Change the fuel filter, drain the fuel and put in some fresh stuff. After 2 years of being stood the fuel will be stale and fuel filter gunked up.

#464405 Ford Focus 2001 Help Please...

As Goodkat says, I'd get the LPG system checked by an authorised garage.
As for the wheel noise that will be a CV joint that needs replacing.
