Fan Solenoid

Is it normal for the fan solenoid switch to get hot? (the one next to the battery)

Has anyone ever used Fulda tyres on their Escort? I was thinking of ECOCONTROL or CARAT PROGRESSO as these seem good for the money. 185/60 14, is T or H standard on the I.6 estates?

Power Steering Pump Noise.

06 June 2011 - 04:29 PM

When my steering wheel is straight or to the right the pump makes a whining/whistling noise but if I turn it slightly to the left it stops (when parked), does anyone know what this is or have had it before. The weather is very hot (35c) now if that makes any difference.

Clutch Squeak

18 May 2011 - 11:40 PM

For the first half mile when the clutch is cold it squeaks every time I change up. It make a noise at no other time, neither does the thrust bearing(no rumbles, etc). What could this be, is it a sign that it's on it's way out?

A Miracle!

I had my cam belt and rollers changed today and this is what the mechanic found. He reckoned it was a few days away from total topend destruction. How on earth did it still run and run OK with the timing that far out? It's the cog/pulley off the end of the crank, for those that don't know.Attached File  MWSnap001.jpg   74.68KB   47 downloadsAttached File  MWSnap002.jpg   55.79KB   46 downloads
