Pushing it a bit here as it's far too new for this place really, soz.

2008 Fiesta 1.25 Zetec pez
MOT Feb
77,000 miles
Allegedly had a new clutch ('but not all of it, just most of it') in December
Dent in n/s/r wheel arch.
3 wheel trims missing (but two replaced with BMW Mini ones!)
I think the tyres are legal but not too far off their limit.

It's running on three instead of four. Best case scenario a valve seat problem, worse case scenario piston or something.
It does run and drive but you'd really not want to go very far at all as it is now. Recovery home shouldn't be a problem though if you use your noggin ;)

Interior minging, will try and valet it myself

V5 missing, assume you'll have to apply for one, but I'll try and get it sorted in next couple of weeks at most.
I reckon at this price there's plenty enough room for someone to make a good few drinks out of it, and I'm more than happy for someone to buy it for that reason.

I have a QH timing belt kit, water pump and a couple of front bearings for one of these, if the lucky* buyer wishes to have 4 cheepz, seeing as it needs to come to bits, anyway.

I had an issue getting the RAC to uplift my Sedona from outside the MOT station where the brake pipe had burst under vigorous testing, due to it not being registered as taxed (it had been, but due to DVLA cock up the D/D had been cancelled.

 

So, make sure your new purchase is taxed to get you home if using the orange breakdown company, not sure if the yellow one has the same policy, but I bet they do now :shock:

 

Also having bought a Fester from Cavcraft motors last year I can thoroughly recommend the experience, 8)

I've got it's twin on an 03 plate with exactly the same symptoms and even very similar miles that I've just taken in px. Going to pull the head off this week to investigate...if it ends up being destined for the great weighbridge in the sky, I may well have a sniff* at this and salvage the necessary bits from the scrapper....

Pull the spark plug cover. These are prone to having the washers leak water through the bonnet that then pools around the plugs and causes a misfire.

Set of plugs and some silicon sealer around the washers and job jobbed.

I forgot that about the washer jets. Good suggestion!

Cav, get it done. 8)

Speaking to the previous owner again, she said a garage told her the problem was with cylinder no. 4.

How can you fit 'most' of a new clutch? Is one of the friction plates missing or something?

Is it one of those retarded slave cylinder in the belhousing designs?

I've got the timing kit for these somewhere, a surprisingly easy job as I discovered after OMGHGF at 22k on Mrs Hooli's old '58 festering.

I've no idea, to be honest. The girl said the clutch went, she was quoted £350 (or something like that) and then they said it 'didn't need everything they thought' so was £240.

No, to be fair she clearly knew the garage well and had owned the car a while, whatever it was they decided wasn't needed, wasn't needed.
