  1. Hello mate, I couldn't send you the finished product through messenger so I thought I would post a pic here of what the rear disc conversion has come out like 😁👍🏻 Cheers for the help through it
  2. Hello, quick update, my car just did the same thing again while I was on my way back from Derby, luckily it cut out on a quiet street. I called the RAC too come and have a look and it turned out the be the ecu earth cable on the negative battery terminal was lose because the threads were stripped on the actual bolt. The bolt on the right is where it normally should be but the chap from the RAC move it too the bolt on the left RAC are absolute saviours and they deserve more credit than they get
  3. Very weird, my engine was barely even getting warm then it just cut out and I lost steering. Managed too get it on the drive and it still wouldn't start or anything so I disconnected and reconnected the battery and it fires up straight away with no lights on the dash or anything. Those codes I had are related too the knock sensor but I doubt that would cause the engine too cut out. Very strange 😐
  4. I have had a look at the connections today and all seems fine. I have it booked in for a proper inspection as I'm concerned about what happened the other day with it cutting out so it will put my mind at rest. Cheers
  5. Hello, I was driving home from work and my car suddenly cut out and the red light at the top of the instrument cluster was flashing and a message saying engine system fault, high engine temperature showed up. I got the car home and disconnected and reconnected the battery and now the car starts fine. The engine was barely even warm as I only have a 2 minute drive too work so the high engine temperature is confusing. One thing that I will say is that the rear brakes are seizing up so if that's got anything too do with it I don't know but I'm getting that sorted tomorrow. I plugged in an obd2 scanner and got 2 fault codes: P0324 P0325 The car is a Ford fiesta mk6 zetec s 2007 with 49000 miles. Cheers for any help
  6. Hello, i am in two minds whether to change my current alloys that are 16" to the ST alloys that are 17". would they look good on a 5 door? cheers
  7. Cheers for the replies, I will look into buying a Ford gasket. The gasket has been alright for now with no leaks and seems to be alright but I will keep an eye on it and if it starts too leak again I will purchase the Ford one. Thank you for the help
  8. I have used silicone sealant where it advised me too use it, I.e where the timing belt is on the half moons. Is it worth just unbokting the cover and adding a bit more silicone to all 4 corners? Cheers
  9. I will see how the car gets on for the next few weeks and if its bad then I will replace it again. Cheers for the help
  10. Elring are meant to be one of the best ones for gaskets aren't they?
  11. Hello, I recently noticed white smoke coming from behind the engine block and a burning smell coming through the AC vents inside the car, I looked at the rocker cover and saw a black residue in the top left hand corner that was dried oil. I changed the rocker cover gasket yesterday and cleaned the whole area. However after letting the car run for a while I have noticed that there is a very small amount of fresh oil in the exact same place it was leaking from before the gasket change. Its only a very tiny amount of oil but it should be leaking after a new gasket change? I have torqued the bolts down in sequence and used silicone gasket sealant on the areas that were advised. Is it the gasket adjusting and will stop leaking in time, or is it a leak from somewhere else? On the diagram photo it's the area at bolt number 4 Any help is appreciated.
  12. I was cleaning the seats yesterday with a valet spray and sprayed it over the cloth parts, that's why it was wet. Cheers anyway mate
  13. Cheers mate appreciate it. It's more grey than blue, it's the standard dash on the zetec blue.
