  2. Slight Mis-Fire

    Hey Guys!!! I know I was going to wait 'till Tuesday but, it got the better of me. So, I bought a new coil pack & HT leads (£48.76) It took me 10 minutes at the most & hey, look at me!!! the newby mechanic has fixed it!! Car goes like it should with no hesitation at all. Hope this helps anyone with similar probs & thanks again for all your ideas. Regards PETE :D :D
  3. Slight Mis-Fire

    :)Guys, thanks for all your interest. I've got the car booked in to a garage that I've used for years. They're good lads & now that I WILL & have checked their work before & I'm lucky that they're good guys to me. It's booked in for Tuesday so I'll report back on the findings!! Thanks again for your help, Regards PETE :)

  5. Slight Mis-Fire

    Hi Folks, Problem with my 99 T reg 1.8 Focus. When warm, if you hammer down the accelerator, you get a hesitant mis-fire then it goes like a freight train!! ONLY IF YOU THRASH IT. If you gradually build the speed up, no problem. It's driving me crazy. It only happens initially & then runs great. Any ideas whats wrong?(Thanks in advance!!)
  6. Rear demisting/heated screen.

    No. I think the answer lies with a broken connection somewhere, but hey, thanks for your ideas anyway. Regards PETE
  7. Rear demisting/heated screen.

    Had a good look at the glass & all I can see is very very small, what look like burn marks, on three of the lines. I've bought some of the liquid mentioned & I'll give it ago later. Thanks for all your help.

  10. Noisey Steering?

    Hi Folks. Sorry for the late responce. It turned out to be drag link bushes/antiroll bar thingy ma jigs!!! Anyway, replaced the !Removed! lot & she's fine now. Thanks again to all of you who tried to help. Regards Pete :D
  11. Noisey Steering?

    It happens when turning from lock to lock & not when holding it on full lock. Also, it only seems to happen when car has been travelling a while ie, when it has warmed up. If it is pumps, what pumps are they as my tool kit consists of one big hammer & a grinder!!! Thanks PETE
  12. Noisey Steering?

  13. Noisey Steering?

    ]Yes, it is power steering & it happens on either lock. Its more pronounced if you rock the steering wheel from side to side.
  14. Noisey Steering?

    Hi folks. Be gentle with me as I'm a newbee!! I'm getting a groaning noise from my steering on my T reg Focus. Driving me mental!!! The steering is smooth & not heavy. Only happens lock to lock. Any helpful surgestions would be great. Thanks Pete
