Used car UK

Ford, escort, MK1, Mexico,Classic car,Ford Escort parts, Ford escort Brake padThe story of this Ford Escort MK1 Mexico was begun when Mr.Sutthikiat Jirathiwat, the owner of Central Department Store, ordered the car for a rally in Thailand. Obviously, the Ford had been modified since it was in UK. Chevy silveradoWhat is unique about the 2009 Silverado models of Chevy autos? With models such as the 1500, 2500HD, 3500HD and Hybrid, this selection will, without a doubt, include the vehicle you’ve been dreaming of for years.Brake pads,Racing grade Brake pads, replace brake pads, frontandrear brake pads,disk rotorA braking system is one of the most crucial parts of any road vehicle out there. If you were driving a car, this would provide you the ability to slow down and stop whenever you need to.Alfa 159Alfa 159 Very sporty.Have plenty of power and is very stable on twisty roads.I drove alot of cars but this is really very good.Alfa MitoAlfa Mito Makes me smile everytime i'm behind the wheel. Especially when you get people checking it out, as it is relatively rare, don't get that with a Focus! Great all rounder, will cruise happily at 70+ or ponder around town nicely to. Will also get a hurry on when you want a3 cabrioletAudi a3 cabriolet UK Very smooth and quiet but with plenty of power when its neededAudi A5Audi A5 Fanatastic, if feeling lazy then leave in Auto, or if feeling like fun use the Sport Auto or Tiptronic gearbox.Audi A6Audi A6 Plenty of space, good fuel economy, good satnav, ability to control many controls from the steering wheel, comfortable rideAudi A8Audi A8 Magic, far better than the closest rivals. Speed,class and looks when you need itAudi Q5Audi Q5 There's a good choice of engines, including the refined yet frugal 2.0 TDI, along with an excellent seven-speed automatic gearbox. Bmw 118dI think it says your a young professional who likes their cars.BMW 320dBMW 320d Driving it is absolute pleasure. I like quite stiff gear change and firm steering and this car is perfect for me. Good motorway tourer and eats up miles at good mpg if you stay within 2000(ish) rpm. You do notice a little external noise.BMW X3BMW X3 A vast improvement on the Disco very much more car like, corners well and pretty rapid if required.BMW X6BMW X6 Drives really well but front wheel tracking must be kept sopt on or steering becomes vagueBMW Z4Chevrolet Aveo nice comfortable seats but feels a little low on power. poor fuel consumption.Chevrolet Aveo nice comfortable seats but feels a little low on power. poor fuel consumption.BMW Z4 Fantastic, this is a real drivers car.Chevrolet AveoChevrolet Aveo nice comfortable seats but feels a little low on power. poor fuel consumption.Chevrolet captivaComfortable. The Captiva remained very stable at motorway speeds. Drives like a normal family car on the narrow winding roads. Performed adequately offroad.Citroen BerlingoCitroen Berlingo Nice light steering and light controls. With there being lots of glass, visibility is very good.Citroen C1Citroen C1 Really nippy and good fun to throw around. A bit noisy on course surfaced roads.Citroen C2Citroen C2 Not a lot happens until you're above 3500rpm but then it flies. Revs to about 7000rpm. Suspension is fairly hard so it's good in corners but on bumpy roads it can get a bit uncomfortable. Citroen C3Citroen C3 Pleasant to drive tho a bit light on the steering. They seem to have set the steering for a tiny person who has no musclesCitroen C4Citroen C4 Quiet, comfortable, with power when you require it.Citroen C5Citroen C5 A very competent car on the road. Not the fastest but capable enough - fuel consumption is poor though at about 39mpg. Would expect it to be a lot better, but still only 10k on the clock.Citroen C6Citroen C6 Wonderful, restful, smooth, powerful, commanding, safe, gorgeous... I could go on but having just driven a C1 courtesy car it made me appreciate the C6 even more.Citroen C8Citroen C8 Good high position, responsive engine. Not too hot on fast corners but then again it's no sports car. Body role is not too excesive but it does understeer quite badly when pushed.Citroen NemoCitroen Nemo Very easy to drive. The engine pulls it along effortlessly and the gear change is smooth. The view ahead is also excellent due to the high driving position.Citroen xsara picassoMy family loves it so does the dog my mum and dad went to the lakes with us and my dad loved it hes even looked at buying one !Daewoo MatizDaewoo Matiz This car is fun to drive!! It takes a bit of going to get it to 70mph, but it can do it. It's quick with no passengers in, and hey it can wheel spin, and jump hump back bridges,as ,good as the next now that is fun!fiat 500 abarthfiat 500 abarth very easy, pretty quick & comfortable - great punto grandefiat punto grande Responsive and quick. Stiff ride to be expected on this model. Ford C-MaxFord C-Max Very good actually, not much body lean compared with our previous Xsara Picasso.FORD fiesta 1.25 zetecFORD fiesta 1.25 zetec It's nice, but it's just not fast enough. It really didn't like hills.Ford focus titaniumExcellent ergonomics and driving position plus lots of space. Nicely weighted pedals and no offset. No ankle ache or other pains on long journeys.Ford Fusion dieselFord Fusion diesel quite fast for a diesel, never had one before so i cant compare to other diesels,not alot of width in front seem to knock elbows alot,other than that its okFord ka 1.3Ford ka 1.3 This car is a dream to drive. The 1.2 engine is so responsive but very nippy from a standing stop. It feels like a far bigger engine.Ford KugaFord Kuga Very good engine, great for round town wish i'd got the parking sensors, mine has the confort pack (dark windows) can make it hard to see when parking in the darkFord S-MaxFord S-Max Pretty poor really. The engine is gutless. The handling is just about OK but nothing more. The brakes are odd, there's about an inch of travel when nothing much happens then they snatch on pretty hard.Honda AccordHonda Accord smooth for a diesel. The Honda Company has first introduced the Honda Accord in 1976. This particular model has been around for over 30 years and the company continues to develop it each year to conform to technological advances and driving efficiency.Honda CivicHonda Civic The civic is very refreshing to drive, it doesn't quite handle as well as the Saxo VTR I once owned or the Focus, but it handles and grips well. The 2.2 diesel engine is refined and offers great pulling power.Honda CR-VHonda CR-V Brilliant. Engine has plenty of punch for a 2 ton car. Drives smoothly, cruises well on motorway and easy around town. It is a big car but feel likes a hatchback to drive. Comfy inside for all passengers; took the in-laws out and they were impressed with the ride in the back. Honda frvI'm hoping to keep it until I don't need another MPV.Honda JazzHonda Jazz Little sluggish compaired to my old Mondeo turbo diesel, but never struggles,Honda LegendHonda Legend Excellent on the motorway and around town. Not so good on twisty roads as it wallows a fair amount, but it will cover ground at a fair pace on sweeping A roads.Honda S2000Honda S2000 Still fantastic car to drive despite 10 years underpinning design. The F20c engine is still a world class in my opinion. Still beats many cars in drive and response feel to this day.Hyundai i10Hyundai i10 easy to drive once you get use to it (keep thinking it has stalled at the lights as it is so quiet)Hyundai i20Hyundai i20 If you can get it into first gear, it's OK, if you want to reverse, again, getting it into gear eventually, engine sounds like it needs another gearHyundai i30Hyundai i30 Smooth and quiet. Far more relaxing than fun. The light steering makes it feel like a small car, and the 1.4 engine is very very willing. Happy to cruise at 70, although the engine seems to whine a little at that price.Isuzu Rodeo DenverIsuzu Rodeo Denver Isuzu Rodeo Denver TD Doublecab Pick Up. Taxed and Tested. Automatic, A/C Cruise and Smartnav. Looks Great Drives even Better!Jaguar xfJaguar xf Superb. Very very quick, and with massive carenskia caren stested quite a few cars of this size and found this came tops on most points. good vision seating firm and quite high. easy controls and steers well slightly light against one or two of the others kia ceedkia ceed Lovely gearbox and sensible ratios. Good handling on smooth roads, occasionally a bit bumpy at higher speeds on uneven B-roads. Very easy to live with for motorway cruising.

I actually arrive feeling ok instead of tired now. great oomph when you need it, pretty quick but I didn't buy it to race chavs in their Saxo's. I'll leave that to the BMW driversLexus is250Lexus is250 Nice and smooth, very quiet.

It's nice and quiet and although only a 1.2 it cracks in down the motorway! nissan notenissan notenissan qashqainissan qashqaiPeugeot 207 hdiPeugeot 207 hdiPeugeot 307 ccPeugeot 307 ccPeugeot 4007Peugeot 4007Peugeot 407 SwPeugeot 407 SwPeugeot 807Peugeot 807Renault EspaceRenault EspaceRenault grand modusRenault grand modusRenault KangooRenault Kangoo Renault KoleosRenault Koleos drives very well performed perfectly on its drive from england to southern spain a 4000 mile round tripRenault LagunaRenault Laguna Fine very similar to the Laguna II, slightly harder suspension but that may be due to it being new compared with our older laguna.Renault MeganeRenault Megane Easy to drive, gear box finger tip operation. So are all the controls. Not much torque below 2000 rpm and not much fuel efficiency above. In, out and around town 55 mpg. It is good not to overtake on any hill. Corners well.Renault ScénicRenault Scénic Wonderfull, For a 1.6 it has a good kick down, and is really comfy and im 6ftSeat IbizaSeat Ibiza After my old Leon Cupra,it feels a bit slow.However my Leon was rapid,so it's still nippy leonseat leon Great smooth gear changes. Super responsive accelerator (sometimes a touch too quick to change down and speed off)and good brakes. Cruises easily at motorway speeds.skoda fabiaskoda fabia Fast, Responsive and very economical. Happy to cruise quietly or battle it out in the 3rd lane. Good around corners, but not as tight as some other small cars. Big wheels and low profile tyres make it grip well, even if the handling isn't class leadingskoda roomsterskoda roomster I drive 45 minutes each way to work along windy country lanes as well as motorway and the car handles both very wellskoda superbskoda superb Lot better on the B-roads than motoring journalist would have you believe. Fast enough in the real world - good motorway fortwosmart fortwo It is fun to drive - I have a semi auto box which you manually select the next gear but when slowing down the gearbox gears down automactically. The car dislikes hills so some times I have to gear down to scream a bit to get some extra revs to make it. ssangyong kyronssangyong kyronVisibility is good thanks to the lofty seating, but the flat chairs dont offer much support through corners. Most of the switchgear is chunky and logically placed, although the stereo has too many fiddly buttons. heres plenty of headroom throughout the Kyron, but rear legroom is a little tight. Much more impressive is the mammoth 625-litre boot, which has lashing points and a small underfloor compartment so you can hide valuables. Fold the 60/40 split rear seats and luggage capacity increases to 1222 swiftsuzuki swift It's brilliant, great driving position. Slow to pull away at first but has the power to overtake on sx4suzuki sx4 Excellent, quite quick and holds it's own easily on a motorway. Quite happily sit at 80-90 providing you don't get caught.Toyota Avensis dieselToyota Avensis dieselThe driving experience in car is very poor due entirely to the level of engine noise in the cabin. The peformance is lively enough and it is economical but the lack of sufficient engine noise insulation to the cabin is really unpleasant. Also there is a characteristic in the tourers that the vertical screen in the rear of the vehicle does not seat properly and rattles constantly - Toyota don't seem able to stop this.Toyota aygoThat I have matured enough to be more concerned about economy than image. I imagine I would put "Funky" here, had I been 10 years younger.Vauxhall AstraVauxhall AstraBetter driving position than previous model, extra gear helps with MPG.Vauxhall Corsa VXRVauxhall Corsa VXR Best car I have driven. Alot more fun to drive than the clio 197Vauxhall Insignia sriVauxhall Insignia sri when boot empty a great drive, when weight in the boot but no passengers will slide when turning right down hill (think turning on powered snow)Vauxhall MerivaVauxhall Meriva fine,good over long and short distances,plenty of room in back for 3 kidsVauxhall monaroI love driving this car. I've taken it on a few road trips and it's great for cruising along. Aceleration in it is also fab, just put your foot down and it takes off. Does drift quite easily. Vauxhall Zafira DieselVauxhall Zafira Diesel It drives well keeping in mind it is still a people carrier. It does have a bad blind spot if you come up to a junction to look for oncoming trafic.Volvo C30Volvo C30 It is quiet (very smooth for a diesel) and suprisingly quick. Handling is excellent with virtually body roll and more feedback through the steering than the reviewers suggested.Volvo V70Volvo V70 The best long distance drive on the road. D5 is powerfull and fast enough. Not a sports car but still very competant.Volvo XC60Volvo XC60 It is like your are out from the World. Everything looks like you watching TV. Even BMW 5 series looks small from high seating position and moves like in a film. The engine is not really responsive when cold. After warms up much better, less noise better response. Gear change is not noticeable at all.VW Sharan tdiVW Sharan tdi Drives like a car. The Sport model has uprated suspension and stiffer springs. The result is minimal body roll and car like handling. High driving position very good and plenty of space to shift around when stuck in traffic when needing to attend to the baby.VW Touareg V10VW Touareg V10 Engine is fantastic, so much torque, feels quicker than my S4. Handles well for a 3 tonne car, feels heavy at the front but that's to be expected. Very comfortable for any sort of journey, however the air suspension seems to hit bumps quite hard at lower speeds, drove a normally sprung model and it felt more composed, sports setting on the air suspension is ridiculously hard.VW Golf gtiVW Golf gti Well here we get to the whole point of this car, It shoudl be like driving a normal car with extra mpg but it's not, It's a nightmare to drive around town, and on the motorway it's just not economical enought to justify the problems driving around town.VW Polo DieselVW Polo Diesel Easiest car I've ever driven. 1.4 petrol yet plenty of power. Hardly any wind noise even on the motorway. You can't tell the engine is on at standstill it's so quiet.VW tiguanI like good and well engineered machinery.VW Touran SportVW Touran Sport After a day of driving, it feels no different to say that of a Passat. The 1.9TDi has lots or Torque and even fully loaded its a very quick car. Its extremely quiet, very comfortable and being someone who has always been anti-MPV, I love driving it.

92 f150 shudders & misses when warmed up
Mood:  cool

92 f150 302 4X4 aod

I have checked through all of the forums and have yet to come up with the solution to this problem. The truck runs fine on a cold start and runs down the road the way it should. Once it warms up it starts missing and causes the truck to shutter. It will also sputter pulling away from a dead stop, once it is warmed up (does not do any of this from a cold start). I have scanned it quite a few diffferent times and get no codes. i will list what I have done so far and maybe you can help tell me what I missed!

replaced all vacuum lines (verified routing about 10 time)
replaced EGR Valve, EVP, EGR control solenoid (tested new parts all good)
replaced TPS (tested TPS and adjusted it properly)
replaced Idle Air Control Module
replaced MAP Sensor (tested good)
replaced Ignition Coil (tests good)
replaced Ignition Control Module
replaced plugs (autolite Platinum) gapped properly
replaced wires (have been routed properly to avoid cross fire)
replaced air filter
replaced fuel filter
replaced O2 Sensor
replaced Engine coolant temp sensor (tested good)
replaced cap and rotor (bronze conductor set)
ran injector cleaner through system for last 5 tanks of fuel
checked fuel pressure at rail. 38 psi engine off, 32 psi engine running, 40 psi running w/ vacuum line disconnected.
checked upper intake plenum for leaks, could not detect any
switching tanks while driving does not affect this at all

The motor is a fatory long block crate motor installed by ford about 2,000 miles ago. Just paid them $90 to put it on their machine, for them to tell me that they have no idea what the problem is. Gotta love those dealerships!!

Anyone with any suggestions, ideas, anything would be greatly appreciated


i'm not real sure but i think that fuel pump should run around 60psi? cat converter maybe clogging up.also sometimes you may have 2 02 sensors and if your running ethanul threw it not good.try putting some sea foam in it.

good luck...

I have a 96 F-250 460ci. fuel injected. I've got the same problem going on with mine. So far all I've replaced is the temp. sending unit for the computer and I'm in the process of the fuel filter. Any help here diagnosing htis problem would be greatly appreciated. I can't afford to just start replacing everything under the sun. lol
