  1. Hello, I was wondering should I use Castrol Edge 5w-30 in my Focus mk2 1.4 ? My car by no means a performance car or anything, I just simply want the best for her, but I've read on some pages that Castrol Edge is for VW group cars?! I thought its Ford Castrol, hehe. So what do you guys think about this? Is this a good idea? Or use Ford Formula F?
  2. Thank you guys for the comments. I'm the second owner for 4 years now and it came with these R15 "Enzo" alloy wheels, so I'm not sure what kind of rim and tire was on the car when the first owner bought it, but anyways I want to change for an R16. And will this "change" cause any damage in the front suspension since its wider than the previous? I've heard some people saying that wider tires eventually damage your suspension.
  3. Hello guys, I need some help. I want to change my Nokian all season tires after 9 years of service and with it the rims. I would like to buy a Pirelli Cinturato Allseason P7 Plus with new rims and I'm not entirely sure about the compatibility. My car: Ford Focus Mk2 2006 3door hatchback 1.4 Petrol Current Tires and Rims: 195/65/R15 x 6,5x15/5x108 New Tires and Rims: 205/55/R16 x 6,5x16/5x108 I've looked up on Car.info and it says: Tires: 195 - 205, 50 - 65 / Rims: 15 - 17, 6 - 6,5 so it shouldn't be a problem, but I'm asking around just in case.
  4. Thanks I will definitely try another!
  5. Hello guys, I’ve found a very intriguing event with my car. (Ford Focus 2006 mk2 1.4 petrol) I live in europe, so I usually fill my tank with OMV austrian petrol, but I wanted to try Shell, so I gave it a go. The other morning the car was throttling and almost died down. After each and every “first start up of the day” the car throttled until I emptied the fuel tank and refilled with OMV and the problem was gone. What could it be? Is the two fuels so different?
  6. Hello guys, I would like to buy an mk3 pre-facelift Focus 1.6 petrol Titanium 2012, is there any common issues or something I should look for before buying one? It has 90 000km in it.
  7. Thank you, reading about it just now.. It seems like a huge issue.. But some state that it have been fixed from 2015/03 till present vehicles. Is it true?
  8. So basically, Mondeos made after 2015/03 are "fixed" and they've been made with steel bolts instead of the aluminium?
  9. Hello, As the title suggests, I would like to buy a 2015 1.5 Petrol Mondeo (EU), and I would like to ask your help about any common issues or what to look for before buying a 2015 Mondeo. Currently I have a 2006 Ford Focus 1.4 hatchback. Thanks in advance!
  10. Hello guys, I'm experiencing a creaking sound when I'm on the move and going through a bump or bumpy road and it definitely comes from the boot door. Any suggestions how to fix it or what could be the problem?
  11. Nope, I don't have neither sport suspension nor the "option" in the menu to change something on the car. Although I do have the ability to use the menu but its just for avg speed, l/km etc. I think on the MK2.5 it has electronic servo assistance so its easen by the "computer" beside the fluid.
