What are the tyre pressure of a ford focus 1.6 automatic 2014


Coming from someone who has worked for Chevy,Ford,and Chrysler dealerships we had to gauge the tires by what the sticker said on the door jam at the driver side..I disagree with it...It is always best to gauge tires with the outside temp because cold weather and hot weather make a huge difference...NASCAR racing can drop a tire pressure on one tire and raise it on another for better traction on the constant left hand turns...Just a 1/2 of a pound can make a huge difference..Tires tend to swell in hot weather and on long trips..another reason it normally says to gauge a tire while it is cold which means been sitting still overnight..It doesn't mean cold weather...However tires won't swell in cold weather...I like running 40 psi in tires if it says 32 or 35....this will give you a good flat even tire wear...I have always added 5 pound to whatever it told me to gauge it at...If a tire wears out on both edges it indicates low air ..,also tire alignment can wear one side of the tire....If it wears in the center it means too much air...It is hard to keep them perfect because of rotations..,weather ,and certain terrain but it can be done by checking them every month....Some tires have different pressures written on them that is different than the door sticker...To answer your question ...Add 5 pounds to the door sticker...,your tires will last longer..They won't last as long with door sticker pressures which will give dealers more tire business...Another thing dealers do is put nitrous in tires instead of air which is supposed to keep air from swelling and changing in the summer and winter...This is good..It isn't Nitro that explodes.....Always tell them to gauge them with your choice of tire pressure....

Low oil pressure engine noise


the ol used has been inappropriate for the weather conditions and the engine bearings have been starved of lubricant. From your description , it appears that there is bearing failure in the engine.

Oil Pressure Gauge Not Working Properly


Electric oil pressure gauges are a waste of time as they rely on a pressure controlled resistor in the sender unit to send the correct voltage to the gauge . If the sender unit is not calibrated correctly then the gauge will read accordingly. If you used thread tape around the sender thread before putting it in that will alter the resistance as there is resistance or a bad connection to earth to start with. TO be absolutely sure of the reading I would have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge . Next is it a PSI gauge or a KPA gauge that you have .

Hi I have a bmw320i 1989 model my oil light keeps flickering and when I have driven for about 20min it will stay on when I stop and the car is idling


check the oil level and condition. Change it if it looks black or too thick. Have a mechanical oil gauge fitted to check that the electrical gauge is correct because the problem may be in the oil pressure sender unit. Check the viscosity of the oil used as now you should be down to the 15w30 range for the cold weather.

Oil light came on when the weather turned cold. Garage put in new light sensor. New oil. Oil cleaner. still comes on when it is cold out. goes off when engine has heated up (around 20 miles)


you need that checked out asap. you cant drive with the oil light on for 20 feet. 20 miles? if it really doesn't have oil pressure for 20 miles, your engine is toasted. have the oil pressure verified with a mechanical gauge, if you are lucky, its only an electrical problem.

Oil gauge goes straight to 80 when 2003 chevy is started.


Hi
have your oil replace with new and make sure it is the proper weight. In cold weather old oil gells up making thiker once it warms up the pressure will go down but is not protecting you engine.

Oil pressure gauage reading high


depending on the weather, and how cold it is, oil pressure will run high until it warms up. now if it still runs high after it warms up then its most likely the oil sending unit.

Oil pressure gauge


they are full of it, u should show oil pressure as soon as the engine starts, this may be a sticky guage or a sender but that advice they gave u is bull, that is for sure, I am a GM technician.

My 2005 Chevy 1500HD when cold there is no oil pressure accoring to the gauge. But after a few minutes of running and then a restart of the engine the oil pressure is bake to normal.


most likely the problem is the oil pressure sending unit or the oil passage to the sending unit is partially plugged, that is unlikely, I would replace the sending unit 1st.
