I don\'t think it matters. it\'s not like it\'ll spoil or undergo some sort of chemical reaction. afaik, any changes that occur with chemicals such as diesel and alcohol would require heat if not some other processes that would involve other chemicals. but again, don\'t take my word for it. ask a mechanic.

That depends solely on the person using it and what they want to use it for.
If you are wanting to play games or watch DVDs then no. If its for easy access to your emails, and internet then yes. In saying that I would not suggest a tablet if you are writing a book or you spend your life on your PC typing as typing on a tablet can become tiresome very quickly. &inches is nice and light but a bigger screen is always a little nicer.There is no right or wrong answer to your question, I know people that love there 7inch tablets and other that wish they had not bought one, think about what you would want to use it for and go and take a look at some demo models in your closest PC store.

How do i put diesel into my ford mondeo from a diesel container when it has a security feature which prevents syphoning and therefore will not take a plastic nozzle??

You will find the diesel pump at the petrol station have slim nozzles that release the safety feature and the other petrol types a wider nozzle thus preventing you from putting the incorrect fuel in your tank. Your spare tyre compartment should contain a special funnel to use that releases the safety catch for you to fill from a can.

My car has been sitting up for five years. Recently, I had the car serviced. The brakes pedal is very low. I was told that I needed to pump my brakes in to get them to come up. I think I may need some...

The master cylinder reservoir should be close to the firewall (at the rear of the engine compartment). Brake fluid will not normally just disappear when a vehicle sits though, and you should have pedal pressure even with low fluid. Chances are that the master cylinder, or a wheel cylinder, is leaking and needs to be replaced.

Where is the topping up reservoir for the power steering fluid?

In the E series of that vintage, which I have. There is a round cylindrical shaped metal container that is about 5 inches in diameter. There is a lid on top of it with a dark colored plastic knob.
It is located at the front of the engine. On mine it is situated on the driver's side of the engine about 1 foot to the right of the engine. It may not be exactly the precise same location on a diesel but the unit is of the same design. If you unscrew the knob, the lid will come off and you will be able to add fluid.
I hope this helps,

How do i change the cabin air filter in my 2003 ford expidition

Locate the cabin air filter container on your Ford Expedition. If you are standing in front of the vehicle, looking at the engine, it will be on the back, left side of the engine, next to the heater fan. You will see a black cover over the top of the container. The air filter is approximately 6" x 9" and about 2" deep. Look for a black casing that will be about 10" across and 8" high. The box sits vertically against the firewall of the vehicle.
Step 2
Remove the cover of the cabin air filter by lightly prying on it with a screwdriver. The cover is secured with plastic tabs that pop off quite often. If this happens, you can buy replacements at your local automotive store.
Step 3
Remove the cabin air filter, and vacuum out the container to remove any dust or debris. Wipe it down with a clean damp cloth and let the inside of the container dry before inserting new filter.
Step 4
Place new cabin air filter in container and secure the cover, replacing tabs if needed. Remove tools from engine compartment and close hood.
Step 5
You are now able to enjoy driving with clean air flowing through the inside of your car.

What type of oil is best to use?

Cheapest synthetic is better than the most expensive standard oil. Walmart offer full synthetic, 5-quart containers of 5W and 10W-30 oil for about 17 bucks.

Either of those weights will serve you well - for 6,000 miles or so.
If you want to run for 10,000 miles, then a Mobile 1 full synthetic for a bit over double the price will serve well.

Suggest that you NEVER allow someone to sell you oil by the quart. The mark up is silly.
Suggest that 4 quart containers are NOT for cars... No car takes 4 quarts.

Suggest that 5 quart containers are good for buying and discarding oil - also cheaper. Check your local Walmart... then check ANY other retailer. Let us know if you can beat the price and container size advantage offered by Walmart.

Cooling system

there should be. its likely a "closed" system, meaning you fill coolant through your resivior tank. look for a plastic "bottle" or "container" next to your radiator, or alond the left side of the engine bay as you face your engine. you should find a cap that says something like "do not open hot- under pressure" on the resivior tank you should see level marks molded into the tank/container. these indicate coolant level at cold and hot. also look for a tube coming out of the tank leading into the radiator. this tube feeds coolant back into your radiator. hope this helps
