    Engine Mulfunction Update

    My 2012 1.6 Ecoboost does that about twice a year, light comes on along with limp mode but no codes stored. I just keep my code reader in the car and do a reset even though it's showing no codes it clears the issue. My mate hooked it up to the Ford diagnostic (IDS?) but no codes shown on that either. I think it's something to do with the K&N filter I'm running but I'm happy to just reset it a couple of times rather than put the stock filter back in. Funnily enough it's not done it though since it went in for the last recall.

    I was expecting to read 'Because I need to take my ID' after that! 🤣 Only joking Zain, I'm just jealous really of your youth, it seems so long ago!😉

    Cheapest Online Tyres

    Hi all. Where have you all found the cheapest place to be for tyres online? I am looking for supply only as I have a couple of people that can fit them for me. Cheapest I've found for my 235/40/18's is Camskill. £110 each for Continental Sport Contact 3's to match the other two still on the car.

  8. Hi all. I'm going to change the Focus later this year and have changed my mind so many times as to what to buy next. I want something bigger, still sporty looking, 3 years old maximum and with a budget of around £14000. I think I might have settled on a Mondeo Titanium estate with a bodykit, X pack and 19's. Looks like a lovely car in blue and grey. What are you all looking at buying next?

    I forgot I use to own a Fiesta ST too, probably because it was only for 30 mins! I was a salesman at a Ford dealership and on my last day working there I knew that we had a ridiculously cheap ST in stock which I was able to purchase at trade value. I bought it, drove it to another dealership 30 mins away that my brother worked at and sold it to them making a very quick £1500, result!!! It was a very nerve racking drive there though as I had to take finance out on it to buy it. The finance was paid off within a week so no interest was accumulated. That was the one and only time I actually made money on a car rather than losing it.

    Rear Speaker Question

    I doubt there are many on here that have changed Cmax speakers to be honest. If I were you I would pop the panel off and have a look for yourself, that way you will be able to measure the diameter and depth to see what replacements will physically fit. With regards to wiring there will most likely be a fixed connector block on the Ford wiring to the speakers if it's all still original. You can either chop this off and add new female spade terminals to suit the sizes of the speaker terminals or buy male spades that will slot into the Ford connector block along with a length of speaker wire and then female terminals on the other end of the wire to attach to the speakers. I like to keep things original and would usually opt for the latter so it can be reverted back to standard at a later date if required, that's up to you though.
  14. 125bhp is never going to feel fast. Maybe you're thinking back and comparing to when the likes of RS Turbos were considered fast cars with 130bhp, those cars though were a lot lighter than modern equivalents loaded with safety features. Has the car been recently serviced?Have you checked that filters, plugs etc are all in good order? Have you definitely got the 125bhp engine and not the 100bhp version? Its worth checking your engine numbers match in case it's been replaced.
  15. Lol, why not just stick them back on with some decent bodywork double sided tape? 2 of my doors have been stuck back on with regular double sided tape and stayed put. Just make sure you thoroughly clean the area first to ensure good adhesion.
  16. Go with your gut feeling which from what youre saying sounds like it's telling you to walk away!!!

    Strange beep on start up

    Have you tried the above as that will display DTC's (fault codes) too. Also useful as it tests all of the cluster led's in case one has been removed/blown which would otherwise indicate the fault.

    Have you tried this to see if any fault codes logged? Im sure some of our resident experts will be able to help you later.🙂

    I keep thinking to start a general chat thread as most of our conversations are always completely off topic for the thread we happen to be in at the time. I will let someone else do it though as I hate it when I start a thread that no one posts on!😂
