  1. Hi everyone I have been the content driver of my 2010 1.6 Zetec for over a year now, but sadly I have a fault which is difficult to pinpoint and would appreciate advice. My wife was driving the car for a few miles two days ago, stopped the car then after 5 minutes it wouldn't start, she left it, came back a few hours later and it started right away, drove it home about 5 miles no problem and the next morning, same problem, wouldn't start, called out the breakdown and they said it was the battery, (still original battery),took car to chemix garage and the guy tested the battery under load and said it had plenty of life left in it and said he didn't want to change it as wasting money and said no point changing battery, he said probably a sticking starter, I was convinced until last night, tried the car and it tried to start engine, but could see the panel lights dimming, decided to put the lights on and it got worse and worse, left it, got jumper leads and connected it up, still same thing, took them off and was going to give up, connected them directly to battery this time (previously I had connect the negative to the body earth), It started, left it for a minute, switched it off, put lights on again and it started, took the jumper leads off and tried it again with lights on, started easily! Don't know what could be the problem, If it was the battery, it wouldn't recover after a minute of charge, or can failing batteries be intermitant? if so, why did the garage say battery was fine, they put a load on it and checked the alternator. Would appreciate any suggestions, really struggling to think of what it would be.

    Fiesta 2013 Wishbone and Shock's Cost

    Had my 2013 Fiesta Titanium ecoboost for 9 months now and was due a service. Went to an independent garage recommended by a few friends and they did a great job. The guy did however tell me that I needed a new N/S/F Wishbone and 2x Rear Shock Absorbers. Obviously both of these would be an MOT fail when thats due in a few months so I want them both sorting. Was wondering if anyone can give me a rough estimate of how much an independent garage should charge for these jobs? Just so I have a ballpark figure before he quotes it for me. Thanks
  3. Hi all, My mk3 Ford Focus Titanium X is in for the recall relating to the coolant system and it got me thinking, I have had it in the garage numerous times for repairs and i was wondering if any of this could be related to the recall. I'm going to take all of my invoices to an independent mechanic that i know and trust to see if it is but was wondering if there is a policy in place that i can claim a refund for anything caused by the faulty system. Any help will be much appreciated and i will keep this thread updated with how it goes as i have had over £2k worth of work done in less than 18 months! Cheers Mike
  4. Just wondered how you got into working on cars? And how you developed your skills further? For me, it was a money saver and from then on became a hobby. Have mainly learnt more through this forum but occasionally wish I had an experienced mate to work with me when I come to tackle jobs that are just out of my skill level! Haynes has helped too (sometimes). I've wondered about volunteering at a garage a few hours a month but don't know if this is ever done or anyone would allow this.......... What about you?
  5. Hi all, I'm new still new to the forum but I've already learnt so much from all the people here sharing a crazy amount of information, so thank you for that! I'm in need of some help, I've been having some issues with my Ford Focus CL(2000). It starts fine, begins to drive well but after a few miles the engine cuts out. I performed a diagnostic check and got an error code of P1299 (Cylinder head overtemperature protection active) but as far as I can tell there doesn't appear to be any over heating. I've purchased a new Cylinder Head Temperature Sensor but I can't find the location to change the part on the car. I've been looking behind the alternator but haven't see anything there. The Engine is a Zetec SE. Any information you can provide would be much appreciated. All the best, Dorian Sora
  6. Hi can anyone please tell me a reliable shop/website to buy a drivers side replacement seat tilt handle for a MK6 Fiesta + is it as easy as people say it is to DIY. What have other Fiesta owners spent on replacement handles for this particular model? Thanks

    Fiesta Mk7 Seats?

    Morning guys, I'm selling my fiesta seats on ebay if anyone needs them - came from a 58 plate so 2009+. They're in perfect condition and work fine, I'm selling because I've just put a leather set in mine. Dec
  9. Hi I've just recently bought an 05 plate 1.25 ford fiesta style (3 door), and it needs a few parts repaired My question is, how do I know what parts will fit, will parts from any fiesta fit? E.g. A fiesta Zetec part? Is there a number or code I should be entering when searching for parts? This is my 2nd car my first was a corsa b and I know I had to just search for corsa b parts, so what should I be searching for with this? Thanks for any help

    Mot Failure Of My Baby

    Hi all, I've had my 1997 Fiesta 1997 for a long time and has done me great, but has recently failed her MOT. Rear suspension arm rubber bush deteriorated. Anti-roll bar gas excessive play. Parking brake efficiency below requirements. Nearside rear position lamp not working. Nearside stop lamp not working. Things like the lights are simple, but the others, im not sure whether its work the repairs now? How much should i look at paying for these repairs inc labour as i have been quoted £300, and I think that is a bit steep. Thoughts? Any help will be much appriciated :)
