  1. Just another thing I have noticed is that underneath where the bubbles are it seems like the coolant is boiling underneath as in the coolant is churning around. Is this normal? Cheers
  2. I do a lot of short journeys so I get a small amount of mayo in the filler cap but after a good drive it's gone. My coolant hasn't dropped at all.
  3. Thank you, I was getting worried that my head gasket has gone or something.
  4. Hello, I have a 2007 fiesta zetec s 1m6 petrol and have noticed that there are very small bubbles in the expansion tank when the car is running. The bubbles only seem to be in 1 spot of the tank on the same side as the coolant vapour hose. I have no other symptoms of anything going wrong. Coolant level has stayed spot on where it is. No overheating issues or anything. I have also used one of them blue solution tests and it stayed blue meaning there are no exhaust gases present. Whether they are reliable or not I don't know. Just worried about those small bubbles. I managed too get a vide
  5. Hello mate, I am also wondering about this aswell. Have you got anywhere with it. Any problems with leaving them off?
  6. Hello, I am changing the wheel bearings on the rear of my car which is a 2007 fiesta zetec s 1.6 petrol but it has the st150 rear disc brake conversion. I am looking at bearings for the car and can't find any with the abs ring. Can I just buy the beari g and reuse the ABS ring as it's seperate too the bearing anyway? Cheers
  7. Hello, I have a 2007 fiesta zetec s 1.6 petrol. I have noticed that sometimes when I start my car, the revs shoot up too around 2k rpm and then come back down too proper idle speed. This mainly happens on cold starts but has also done it when warm. I have also noticed a hissing/metalic grinding under load at around 2k rpm. It doesn't make the noise while stationary, only while accelerating under load and makes the noise at 2k rpm. Anything about or below and it doesn't do it. Could it be a vacuum leak that is causing the high revs when starting and the hissing noise? Ch
  8. Just picked up a new fuse and new bulbs and that has fixed the problem 😃
  9. Just to update. I found the fuse for the rear number plate light has blown and one of the rear lights is burnt and has the same smell that I was smelling in the car. Water has got into the light fixture and has burnt the fuse. Getting new bulbs and a fuse and will seal that fixture up and hopefully that fixes it.
  10. Hello, I have a 2007 fiesta mk6 zetec s 1.6 petrol. I noticed today that there was a burning smell in my car when I was driving and I had my sidelights on. I noticed that there is no light illuminated on the dash when the sidelights or headlights are on. It also smells like a burning rubber type smell. I have had a look at some fuses and they all look alright. Any ideas what it could be?
  11. Oh right mine is like a whoop whoop whoop sound. Very strange. Hope my gearbox doesn't need changing. Just refreshed the oil and everything 😂😭
  12. I know this has got nothing to do with the OP but when I'm driving around 40mph in 3rd especially, there is a whooping sound that goes up and down with revs but fades of below 2k rpm. Is that what you had?
  13. Hope it's something cheap and easy too fix mate 👍🏻
  14. Maybe your brakes are sticking or a seized caliper? Is there excessive dust on any wheel more than others? I have a mk6 fiesta so it's not got all the computer warnings so I can't say for sure what your problem is.
  15. That's very strange, hope you get it all sorted mate 👍🏻
