    Cool running engine

    i have a 1.8tdci mondeo mk4 59reg. The car engine temperature always fluctuates a lot. I have changed the thermostat twice and the engine coolant sensor is on the side of the engine in a dry pocket rather than in the fluid flow. I have changed this sensor as well. To rule out the gauge I have...

    warped again

    The reason I say they are warped is when new the is smooth. When they warp when I brake the car vibrates from the rear. I can test this by driving then gently pulling on the handbrake which then makes the car shudder. After changing the discs it stopped and has come back after a few months.

    Mondeo water temp

    I have changed the thermostat and vented all the air. Temp still hangs between 75 and 90c. If i wait in traffic it gets slightly closer to 90 but then pull away and it drops again. Is this a duff sensor as the temp should be 90c constantly.

    Vectra dead randomly

    We have a 1.9tdi 2006 vectra. It has an intermittent fault that you put the keys in and turn the key but everything is dead. You do this 3 or 4 times then the dash lights up and starts. I thought this May be a key issue but it does it with both sets of keys. Any ideas.

    Mondeo water temp

    Yes when you drive along the temperature varies. I put the heater on full with the fan on full and you could see the needle drop. When put back to normal temp it creeped up again. Will be replacing the stat this weekend.

    AC just stopped working

    It's a top up unit with pressure valve that connects/pierces a can of r134a. It does have obd2 but it looks like the car does not support ac diagnostics.

    AC just stopped working

    Hi I have a 58 reg fiesta and API switched on my AC that was working last week and now it's not. The fuse is fine and I have checked the pressure in the system (I have a top up unit with gauge) so I know it's not loss of refrige. The light on the AC button works so how can I test if I have a...
