  1. Are you spraying the easy start then trying to start it or is there some one spraying why someone is trying to start it ?
  2. Does the car run on the easy start then stop when it has burned it or is there nothing at all?
  3. Ok so my mum has got a 2006 focus Cmax and i after changing the heater motor resistor which I believe is located behind the glove box. So I was wondering if any one has removed one before and could point me in the right direction of all the screws as it seems that the center console has to come out.
  4. Ok so my mum has gone away and left me with her c-max but when ever the car gets to 3000 rpm it nose dives and then cuts out any ideas what this could be thanks. The car is a 56 c-max 1.6 diesel
  5. The chemicals in the blue antifreeze are alot more aggressive than what are in the pink as the blue antifreeze eats away at aluminium Engine parts so if your engine is running pink antifreeze I highly recommend you don't put blue antifreeze in but I can't say if the prestone yellow will be OK
  6. No I left it on the jack when tightening and I have had no problems
  7. I just did mine ft the horizontal and vertical ones i pulled them in with a buzz gun then checked with breaker bar and the pinch bolt just did that up with a 3/8 ratchet If you want torque settings get me the tensile strength of the bolt and the thread size and I can get a torque setting for you
  8. Ebay Item number 151430793986 Then select 2 way 6.3 in the options
  9. Why cool it when the engine ain't running tho I thought it would need oil more than water to stop the moving part wearing
  10. I typed in ford fiesta turbo water cooled on Google and the 1st site is fiestast.net it's on there about the water jacket for the turbo http://fiestast.net/threads/the-official-fiesta-st-network-question-and-answer-thread.90/page-4 5th comment down
  11. Agreed but upon looking online fiesta st turbo has a water jacket for cooling just can't understand why it would still pump with the engine off
  12. Your car is bubbling due to the coolant system being over filled the tank you are looking at is a expansion tank and should and be filled half way between min and max to allow for the water to move as for the turbo cooling down its more letting your turbo slow down before turning off the engine to prevent starving the turbo of oil
  13. Get well soon hope your not hurt to bad
  14. mick ogden diesels they are based in Chorley not 100% sure if you can take your car to them or just parts we use them at work as I work for a bus company in atherton all I can say is give them a bell see what they say hope its any use to you
  15. That's the thing my no claims ain't protected
  16. My guesses are the cars been sold or scraped and he's now driving round in something else also uninsured until it happens again but like you say hopefully they do find him and make him pay for the damage but I doubt they will
  17. Used the site you suggested to find out the guy ain't insured so looks like it's coming out of my pocket
  18. I was thinking of just paying myself as the damage is only a few scratches down the drivers side and a wing mirror but for obvious reasons I don't want the guy who hit me to think it's Ok for him to drive round crashing into people do a runner and nothing come of it so one way of another I want the guy to pay for what hes done. Cheers for all the advice If I do go threw hes insurance do I have to pay my excess?
  19. So I was the victim of a hit and run the other day but managed to get the guys reg number rang the police who told me to go to my local station to make a statement but noone was available at the time so I was told they would contact me with a date to go back anyway just a few questions if I ring my insurance and explain what happened and ask.the to claim my damages off he's insurance will I lose my no claims bonus? Plus how long do the police usually take to sort something like this out as my mot is due Thursday and some of the damaged parts are failures. Iv got a funny feeling I will have to pay to put my car right for mot
  20. Huyton asda post code for those who need it L36 7TX
  21. Is there any way of my updating the software on my stereo without a usb port?
  22. XL stands for eXtra Load which means the side walls of the tyres are reinforced to support more weight for the likes of vans ect. I assume you drive a focus from your Dp and I think your car doesn't really need xl tyres on but check with you local tyre shop just to be on the safe side
  23. Next : your car in mc donalds drive threw
