2010 Ford Focus oil temp gauge reading hot
Kasuallymadi posted a topic in Repairs & MaintenanceMy 2010 Ford Focus oil temperature gauge started reading hot this evening. It is smoking. Once we leave it off for 10 minutes it’ll go back to normal but after 5 minutes it goes back to hot. We found the coolant was out so we tried that and it got hotter faster that way. What could the problem possibly be?
I need some help to locate an unwanted sound from my engine compartment. Im driving a Ford Focus 1,6 petrol engine/zetec (2000), mileage:166 000 km. It's best described as a clicking or ticking sound which is quite distinct. The sound seems to follow the "speed" of the engine. Most likely the sound is coming from the drivebelt, and maybe from one of the tensioners which the belt is running on. It's a visible wobble on one of the wheels but im not sure if this is the case. It dos not seem like the sound is originating from the engine itself but im not 100% sure. Any good advice on how to go about this conundrum? Super greatful if anyone could take the time to help out a novice! I attached a sound .wav file for those who are interrested..... Thanks again!ford.wav
Vauxhall Astra vs Ford Focus
MotorTorqueuk posted a topic in Car Comparisons & ShoppingThis is a well know fewd, but what does everyone think - the Astra or Focus. Apparently the new Astra Tech Line model is supposed to be a new way of Vauxhall getting back on top and overtaking its American rival, but we drove one recently and didn't think it lived up to it's reputation. But what does everyone else think? Let us know, it will help writing stuff for our site Here is our review of the new Astra Tech Line by the way:
