    Ford Headlight Tech Helps Keep Drivers’ Eyes on the Road

    Head-up displays have for some time enabled drivers to stay focussed on the way ahead. But now Ford engineers are trialling new headlight technology that could help ensure those behind the wheel literally keep their eyes on the road  1   The new technology can project directions, speed limits or weather information onto the road so the driver’s gaze can remain fixed on the way ahead. Night-time can be riskier for driving. In the UK, 40 per cent of collisions happen in da

    Mk6 Coolant Smell

    Have that lingering sweet smell of coolant seeping out from under the bonnet when the engine is hot, outside of the car.  No visible leaks. Coolant reservoir still has plenty of coolant in it. No overheating issues. No white smoke from exhaust. No mayo. No exhaust gasses in coolant tank.    What are the most likely sources of a minor leak of hot coolant that would produce that easily identifiable smell?

    Help with ignition barrel

    I have a 2001 Ford Focus. Recently just put it through the MOT with £395 of repairs only for the garage to ring and say they have a problem getting the key to turn. I've not really had a problem with the key before except sometimes it sticks on a first try, so I think it's no big deal. However, it takes me 40 mins to be able to start it. They finish off testing it for the MOT and I drive it straight home without stopping it just in case. Sure enough, I now can't get the key to turn. The garage

    New engine ecoboost 1.0. Should I do an oil change at 1000 miles after break in period or just leave it till the regular 5000 miles?

    I've had two mechanics tell me to do it at 500 miles as bits of metal come of the engine as it runs tight when new and another one tell me this isnt really true for new engines so I thought I would ask here if any one knows any recommendations for this specific engine. Afaik the handbook says the break in period is 1000 miles but says nothing about oil changes. I'm also a bit paranoid about taking this car to garages to get oil changed due to the apparent sensitivity of this engine to different

    • Barrel doesnt have to be programmed to car.  The immobiliser chip in the plastic part of the key needs to be programmed to car. Perhaps replace barrel and key and move chip from old key to new key.   You can sometimes on eBay get keys cut from photos.  This is because the person can recognise the key code from looking at the picture of the key.  You could try sending one of those the pic and asking if they can do it.  With regard to replacing barrel, you need to be able to turn the key to a certain position I believe to withdraw the barrel, so getting the barrel out might be a problem.
    • Every new engine I've had I've always changed the oil at 1000 miles.   None of those engines has ever used any oil.  
    • That reminded me of this story 😀   The German air controllers at Frankfurt Airport are renowned as a short-tempered lot. They not only expect one to know one's gate parking location, but how to get there without any assistance from them. So it was with some amusement that we (a Pan Am 747) listened to the following exchange between Frankfurt ground control and a British Airways 747, call sign Speedbird 206.   Speedbird 206: "Frankfurt, Speedbird 206 clear of active runway." Ground: "Speedbird 206. Taxi to gate Alpha One-Seven." The BA 747 pulled onto the main taxiway and slowed to a stop.   Ground: "Speedbird, do you not know where you are going?" Speedbird 206: "Stand by, Ground, I'm looking up our gate location now." Ground (with quite arrogant impatience): "Speedbird 206, have you not been to Frankfurt before?" Speedbird 206 (coolly): "Yes, twice in 1944, but it was dark, -- And I didn't land."
