  1. would you happen to know where is located on my car? been googling it for ages but no joy and considering im unsure as to what it looks like, just looking under the bonnet wont help! Its a insignia 1.8 petrol if i didn't mention earlier
  2. Hi all! So I brought a 2010 insignia 1.8 last week (private sale), really nice car but has a coolant loss issue. Fortunately I’ve still got my Focus parked up outside 😄 the owner before me told me the expansion tank had a hairline crack in it, common on these apparently. So I’ve replaced that along with a coolant change. Unfortunatly im still loosing coolant but got no idea where? Ive done all the usual checks for a head gasket, no symptoms at all. After a bit of research, another common issue found relating to the egr. Is it possible to loose coolant through the egr? If so, how could I check & repair? Am I right in thinking the egr is located on top of the gearbox? Thanks all!
  3. Okay so you’re saying is it’s fine to only replace one but worthwhile replacing both? Just to be clear as I don’t want an unsafe car
  4. Did exactly that, works fine now. Still no spare working key but that’s a problem for another day!
  5. Sorry for such a late update! Car had now been sold to a “mechanic”. He said the tapping noise was the coil pack!
  6. I had a look at both shocks on the front, the passenger side had a lot of oil/grease around the bottom of the shock. The drivers side is clean. So I’d guess the passenger side is shot. Should I replace both sides or is replacing the one fine? Thanks.
  7. Oo good idea & out of the car park at work, always get one to spin up 😉
  8. Hi, can someone tell me the best way to test a shock? Last couple of days my car hasn’t felt right, it’s felt loose & knockes when I go over bumps or accidentally wheel spin. I’ve got a 2005 Focus1.6. I’ve had a look at the bushes on the front, they look fine. No major cracks that I can see. Thanks!
  9. That’s what I meant haha, yeah I knew you could transfer the chip but due to the design in the original key the chip is built in, it would mean damaging the key to remove the chip
  10. right guys, I’ve got a video on YouTube; ignore the sound of the engine, it’s not that loud in person haha
  11. Any ideas where? The car runs smooth & sounds fine apart from the ticking sound
  12. Great description I know 😂😂 I do have a video but it won’t let me upload it. I’ll upload a photo now. The ‘thingy’ is that thing with the big air pipe going to it
  13. Hi all, I know this is not a Ford but I do have one I promise! I recently got my mrs a 2010 Corsa 1.0 ecotech with 52000 miles on the clock. I brought the car with a misfire, sorted that no problem. But there is a ticking noise there too. Doesn’t sound like anything back. Maybe like a relay ticking? Mot sounds like it’s coming from the thingy sat dead centre of the engine (pipe from airbox joins onto it) i have raised YouTube but can’t find any noise remotely similar to mine I do have a video but I can’t upload it! Many help is greatly appreciated!
  14. Sorry about the long delay in replying! Its only half solved because I only replaced half of the remote ;) I don’t have the tools/software to reprogram the immobiliser chip in the key so I got a blank key off amazon, used the old key, old remote back (containing immobiliser chip) & new front. Programmed that to the car and hey presto! I figured it was the key because the car only locked when I was close with the key, it didn’t lock if I was in the house for instance.
  15. Hi all, so I put a post up here the other day regarding faulty central locking. Turns out as my remote was faulty. I now have a new remote (new key from amazon) which locks/unlocks the car fine. My plan was to use the new remote with my old key then get the blank key cut to use as a spare. For some reason the car won’t start using my old key with new remote, it will start however using my key, new remote front and old remote back. Im assuming this has something to do with the led sender thingy within the key. This is not a issue, I’d just prefer to use a complete new remote. Does anyone know any way to make this work? Thanks, Jordan.
