Hi there i have a 2006 ford ka and would like to know if it is hard to remove the aircon unit that sits under the dashboard?

Any work under a dashboard is awkward although not necessarily difficult as such. One thing to consider is that an air conditioning system has refrigerant suspended in oil in its pipes, and disconnecting pipes in such as system will spray this mess all over the place.

My 2002 ford courier heater wont blow hot air the blower is fine but no heat oil an wayer levels are fine good engine just no heat anyone help please and thanks

Hello. This is a common problem on fiesta's and KA's so I presume it could be the same on the courier. There is a valve which 2 pipes goes in and 2 come out behind. The vave is stuck shut! They are right next to each other and about 1 inch wide. If you look at the bulkhead you will see these 2 pipes and they lead into the valve inbetween the wipers. Two clips hold the pipe on and two other clips behind the valve. These will have to be removed and the valve taken off. You will loose a small amount of water when removing the pipes. Just make sure the engine is cold so you don't scold yourself. The valve is quite cheap approx £30 and will take about 30 mins to do

Brown goo coming from exhaust pipe on a ford

I would think that the brown goo is most likely to be caused byworn piston rings or valve seals which are allowing unburnt oil to be expelled into the exhaust system. The other thought is that it may be a coolant leak such as a head gasket problem which is allowing steam or water into the engine and then exhaust.

Ford Ka OHV 1.3i Engine

The motor has what is called a positive crankcase ventilation system (PCV - hence the valve). It also has a pipe that goes from the top of the motor to the air cleaner. If your piston rings are well warn, the added pressure that this produces will force a quantity of oil into the air cleaner. A small amount is normal. You are probably losing some oil through the rings as well. The loss of power may be that your compression is low from the bad rings. You can check the compression yourself. They sell compression testers for about 30 bucks. Follow the directions. If a piston does read low compression, squirt some motor oil in the cylinder after the first test. If the reading goes up, that means that the rings are bad.

1992 ford tempo oil leak?

Definently sounds like the rear main seal. My 97' Dodge Ram has the same issue and it leaks in the exact spot and has the same symptoms. Changing the gasket on the rear seal in simple but it's hard to get it apart to get to it unless you have the right tools and mechanic know-how. Your car seems to be leaking more than mine so it seems to be worst, but it is most definently the rear main seal. I put gasket maker/sealer on mine and it temperarely stopped the leak but due to pressure it will always seem to start again. Your best bet is saving the money or if you have it, invest it and go ahead and have the problem fixed. Hope I was of some help.
