In Topic: Problem Going Uphill!

20 October 2013 - 09:18 AM

Bought a 2nd hand mk1 which had a new tuning belt. However on hills it jut wouldn't go and was really underpowered, especially pulling out at junctions. Garage said timing was out by a couple of teeth, as the garage didn't peg it right when cambelt was done. However I got it back and it still had the problem. Garage had it for 2 days investigating. In the end it appeared the wrong camelt was previously fitted. This was changed and it now feels like a totally different car. All under 1 month warranty.

Had the same with my first Fiesta (2009). Quite often go an Engine Malfunction error. Never left a code though and the dealer never solved it.


In Topic: Clunk In Steering When Turning ?

My 60 plate Zetec S was in for the same issue a couple of weeks back. When parking, or steering at low speed, I would get a knocking noise from the steering (not from the wheel but more in the depths) The Dealer knew what it was as soon as I started talking. They just replaced my steering column. All under warranty and no questions asked.
Don't be messed about by your dealer. It's a known issue to Ford and will be done under warranty.

Its booked in now, and the service guy said its a quick job if it's what he thinks it is (suggesting a common fault) and that its warranty work.
