  1. Past hour
  2. Depends if you bought your feeler gauge this century I guess...
  3. You can remap the 100ps 1.6 up to 111/112ps easily enough. Not sure how much the cost would be nowadays though.
  4. You may loathe them with a passion but if only used as networking tools, they work, I have 8 friends i interact with, a couple of mk2 focus groups and a sleep apnea group and that about it, lond as the apps are locked down security wise they may serve your purpose, the VOIP protocol works well and 99% of my call use this medium.
  5. No, no hot work in that area. In any case I don't have any of that sort of kit available to me. First off the area above the tank is fairly stagnant, that is there is no direct spray in wet weather and no rapid through air flow so a perfect seal by welding is not really necessary. Second the loss of body strength by cutting a hole is, in my view, trivial. My actions may not satisfy a perfectionist but it worked well for me. When cutting the hole I stopped short of 360 degrees leaving a tag of a couple of centimetres or so to act as a crude hinge. It was easy to fold back the centre bit. To finish off, the centre circle was bent back so that it was flush with the floor and the area sealed up with good old fashioned duct tape. If you are worried about the centre circle pushing through then a couple of strips of metal across the gap and held in by self tappers would suffice. As as final tip if the pump assembly is held in by a great big threaded ring, it can be tight and difficult to unscrew. Just pour a kettle of boiling water over it to make removal easier.

  6. Today
  7. So after hours of investigations on sensors and other stuff, I took it to an ECU specialist, changed the ECU with a second hand one and rewrote the software and works perfectly again. Seems the ECU software happens to have bugs and somehow has rewritten itself, which led to wrong checksum calculations when the ECU was hot. Strange, I know. Moral of the story: if the ECU says it has a problem, then it has a problem. So don't ignore it and look into other places.

    creak

    Mine had a creak just as I pulled away from a standstill. Sounded almost like the suspension rubbers had dried out but Ford looked at it and it turned out to be two of the air con pipes rubbing together. Moved the pipes apart slightly and cable tied them and the creaking stopped!
  9. I will wait a year then but so far Amazing. Would be good to hear from people with bad ones as i have been waiting for them to pop off or something break. 👍😁
  10. Yesterday
  11. so i think its solved , had a think about what will cause fule cut off and spark cut ... crank sensor !!! so for £11.44 i took a punt , 35 miles later the car seemed smoother and no cutting out ... should have realised not all sensors give faults ... hope this helps so,meelse one day .
  12. There's two possible solutions described in the thread above. Could be either. Sounds like the split hose is the more common problem, perhaps.
  13. Hi there did you get sorted with this issue as I have the same problem?.
  14. I had a 2004 C-Max that had hesitation at 1600 - 1800 revs and it ran better with the MAF sensor disconnected. Not ideal, I know, and the engine mgt light came on, but I got fed up with taking it apart to clean it all the time. Don't know if your engine is similar???
  15. Hey everyone, Quick question about my Focus ST, Got it back in December 2021, I speced it with the performance pack and was having a play around in the infotainment system and could not find any option to change the colour/brightness of the ambient lighting that is included with the pack. I have tried it with ignition on/off, Is this even possible? Or could it be that I need to update my system at all? Even my partners new Kuga ST Line X we picked up today, hers has a few options to play with the ambient lighting, brightness, whereas mine does not. Any info is greatly appreciated. All the best guys!

  17. Thanks I'll give it a try. Hopefully it's the stalk and not the BCM
  18. What do you plan on towing ? Have you bought a aux towing kit ?
  19. Great! ill need dust of my OBD cable and have a look at the weekend Thanks!,
  20. On this generation it's common for water to get into the aerial base and cause corrosion, I'd check that
  21. I'm looking to replace the old 1.1 engine in my popular plus (and suspension too soon after) I'm try to find out which later 1.6 petrol engines (and gearbox) will be a straight swap. Any help from you experienced guys would be really appreciated... Cheers...
  22. That rate of leakage sounds like the valves on either the high pressure/ low pressure sides or both are leaking (either because they weren't tightened or just failed) the valves are a common failure point on AC systems in general
  23. I would only buy one of the known brand unit,as the Chinese ones have no support, and usually stop being updated within a few months of their release, also that one in your post is now 2 versions of Android behind, better of with either your double din or an android carplay double din
  24. That comment seems a little unfair …. the point is that Fword are doing what the fwuck they want! They are ruthless business people ( just look at the plight of workers at Saarlouis and Valencia pit against each other and having to reduce workforce by 40%) It’s the lack of communication from Fword to dealership and other agents as to what is actually the plan for production… that is pwissing us all off!
  25. You video sounded normal to me, but make sure that the brake hardware isn't mis shapen at all as it could be running into your rotor when u brake
  26. As has already been said aux is analogue,however u may find your Bluetooth module has a usb socket (most likely mini B) if so you can get a mini B to female a cable
  27. Yes was getting correct voltage and and working perfectly just drive for bit and get error codes and goes into engine malfunction and speed limiter
