Glad to hear It passed :) hopefully the solution to the pre-heat is simple electrics are never fun lol. It's a shame you can't have all the parts however if you want them I can offer the diesel specific parts; the water hose, vac pumps, exhaust front pipe and speedo's for £160 I'll even throw in a fuel tank I have lying around collecting dust and both Haynes manuals I have, one of which is specifically about the 1.6 and 1.8 diesel engines.

Unfortunately after Juggling figures I've come to a decision if either of you guys are interested I am offering the entire lot of parts up for £500, they are worth more than that if I sell them separately but I simply don't have the time PM me are interested in having them.

Really that low? couldn't have gone for it as my pc had decided around then that I needed new peripherals and a backup mouse decided to blow my board costing me in total £480 (running this thing is expensive lol).

 

Ouch it really didn't win that fight and only 4 years old at the time? >.< my sympathies. I do have audio recordings somewhere of the engine running from both inside and outside the car if i can remember where they were stored >.< fingers crossed your car passes it's test would be nice to know that another one is running the roads :)

 

I'm waiting to find out how much money I've got coming my way at the end of the month which will enable me to look for another car so i can't really say what my price range will be yet but I may end up going for something like an 07 Fiesta 1.6TDCI if I can't find one (Escort lol) when I'm ready as those things are only £30 a year tax

 

Incidentally I Just remembered something the red estate or as i still call her KDF was actually at the Donnington ford meet in 2008 if anybody went parked in the carpark at the time but she drew a lot of attention lol as they tend to
