  1. Not quite shite, but,In 2006, I picked up my oldest (now) from the hospital in...A 1998 R reg Mercedes E240 Avantgarde....Man, I loved that car. My youngest this year was ...a 2005 vauxhall astra 1.6...reliable enough car, but shite. The Astra has since been replaced by a Honda CRV 2.0 I vtec... I don't intend to be picking up any more newborns in the Honda,I'm getting the snip.
  2. Just to add to this, I currently have a 2004, 54 plate T5 (2005 facelift model) 6 Speed manual. It is a very very strong pulling car....3rd gear acceleration is rather addictive & it pulls like a train. Weak points on the petrol turbos, the PCV System, it has a canister under the inlet manifold, this collects all the oil gasses & residue & then recirculates it. Saves it just burning out the exhaust. However, this is often neglected as the cars get older, & the pipes into the canister & the canister itself block up with thick, hard oil & carbon deposits...this in turn ca

  10. That's what I think I am going to do, give it to someone I know to sort. I genuinely did not know about them needing to go in a specific way. Oh well....everyday is a school day as they say Top tip for future reference people...check the rear wheel bearings are magnetic on one side BEFORE fitting them. Thank you all for your replies. Apprieciated.
  11. As per title, today I replaced the rear wheel bearings on a 2006, 56 plate Fiesta. I did not have a press, so used the tried & tested socket & extension bar & hammer combination & It worked a treat knocking them out. Got the new wheel bearings (With new ABS reluctor rings) placed the old bearing on top of the new one & placed a bit of wood over the old one & proceeded to knock the new bearings in (both sides), checked bearings were seated correctly,put the circlip on, built it all back up, take car for test drive & once at 15-20mph the ABS light comes on, which wa

  17. Sorry for the delay in posting back, yesterday was a hectic day for me. Thanks for the suggestions, I will when i get time (maybe tomorrow) jack it up & have a look at the starter connections & maybe give it some gentle persuasion with a hammer. & have a look at the earth wire also.
  18. As some of you on here may know, Last year, around October, I bought a 2003, 53 Plate Jaguar 3.0 S Type. I got it MOT'd & sold it on to my Dad, who really enjoyed smoking around in it. In January this year however, it decided to FTP. What happened was, it was parked up as normal, my Dad went out to it the following morning, put the key in the ignition, turned on the ignition, turned the key to start it &........Nothing. No Click, Just nothing. Ignition lights all come on ok, it just will NOT turn over. Various messages on pinging up on the display, ASC Failure, ABS Fault etc.

  20. GLWTS. My S60 is a cracking car (albeit a bit thirsty, but it's a 260bhp T5) & it is a very nice thing to waft about in. it can fair shift on when required..just ask the arsehole in the Mongdeo St220 who came charging up behind me...3rd gear in the Volvo &..bye bye Mongdeo I must say however, the turning circle is rather poor. Mines does require some TLC now,it's done nearly 148,000 now. There is a judder from the front when braking from speed,a clicking c.v joint & I need to get the (important on these T5's) PCV pipework changed, as I do not believe that this has ever been done
