The advice that I give is to have the fault codes read first after a test run. do not believe anything the seller says. If there are no faults recorded, then have the vehicle independently checked by an accredited motoring checking shop (Motoring club) use a fridge magnet to check for body bog and rusty panels. a passing certificate can be bought so do not rely on it as an indication of good vehicle.

An 02 mondeo lx had no oil in so I put approx 3l in. it didn't register so i put another 2l in drove to London was stuck in traffic,the car started chugging now eml is on and staying on any ideas??

Too much oil can aerate and foam up causing cavitation in the pump which will cause the system to not be able to lubricate properly. Drain the oil and put in the amount recommended by Ford.

What to do when your vehicle is running rough

Hi, now this tip covers both petrol and diesel injection engines:

If your vehicle is running rough through all running temp range ie it runs rough when cold and at running temp.
The first thing you should do is go out and purchase a fuel line cleaner, now this you pour into the petrol tank and it then cleans all the fuel lines and all the injectors.
You can buy this from most filling stations and car spares shops a good brand to buy would be Red X this i find works better than any other brand, make sure you buy the correct type ie petrol or diesel and then just follow the instructions on the back of the bottle.
You will then need to give your car a good run for at least 30min to ensure it has worked its way around the whole fuel system.

If after doing this your vehicle is still running rough then you need to look at changing things like fuel filter, air filter etc just give your vehicle a good service and then you should find you have solved your problem

Hyundai Santa Fe, 2004, 2000cc petrol - excessive fuel consumption but car running very well - good engine, quite silent. Driver very economically conscious but can only achieve 18mpg urban and 24mpg long...

this is about right for a 2.0 petrol as the engine is built for the american market.where 18/25mpg is could always buy a chip for the car as this will improve things a lot.look for "starchips"or engine tuners on the web.(hyundai do not chip their own)my diesel went from 30mpg to over 40,cost £350 and the extra power is worthwhile on its own.....

Where is the fuel filter located on my 2004 Chevy Trail Blazer? WE

On 05+ Trail Blazer, the fuel filter is integral with the fuel pump inside of the fuel tank. It is a non-serviceable part. On 02-04s, the filter is on the drivers side frame rail at about the B-pillar. If your trail Blazer is a late 04 which means that it was build close to the 05 Trail Blazer, you may have a non serviceable fuel filter. Good luck and check under your Trail Blazer or look at your manufactured date sticker on the door which would help you indicate if your 04 is a early Trail Blazer and you'll have the fuel filter on the inside frame rail under the driver's door.

I have a jetta 2002. One of the lights is this funny looking square on the right. It`s yellow. What does this mean?

this is the engine electonics lamp or eml, basically covers upto 2000 different codes, if it hasnt gone out its a permanent fault but if the car is driving ok not too serious if its major (petrol models) the lamp will flash. Refer to a good garage/ vw agent or specialized in diagnostics to fix.
