    focus 1.6 L

  2. Brake Oil Loss

    I will definitely go back with the car. I was gonna ask a friend to do it for me but don't think I could put him through it. Plus the fact that he's over 6ft won't help. Thanks

    The mechanic checked the clutch he said it was ok. Will have to take the car back for another check. Thanks
  4. Brake Oil Loss

    hi , I'm here again with the same problem oil loss, It isnt very noticeable that there is a loss. but I also noticed recently that there is some fluid under the pedals. First i thought it was water. But it dropped on my shoe today and as i wiped it off with my fingers it felt oily. so any ideas folks on this new development.
  5. Park Assist

    Hi, An Acquaintance told me his father in-lAw just got his new mobility car which can park itself. Now excuse my ignorance but as All my cars have been older cars I've never heard of this park assist. What does it actually do. Zev
  6. Brake Oil Loss

    Yeah A friend suggested condensation for the fluid loss. Come to think of it I had new pads last year I was told they were quite bad. perhaps the mechanic didn't top the fluid back up. Thanks Zev

  13. Water Drip

    hi all, can you help, i have a 2002 1.6l .Last couple weeks have noticed i have a small pool of water on the drivway on the drivers side. I've watching my fluid levels and its been fine, lost alittle over months but nothing much. Is it likely to be the AC which I havn't used for months ,just read in the Haynes book it should be used for at least 30 mins a month which i didnt know .Or the pollen filter which i'm not sure ive even got. The patch of fluid dosen't appear to have oli in it as it drys away if it dosen't rain.I've also noticed a slight drip of water in the car near the foot pedals, Any ideas xev
