You can use any make coolant. most spares outlets sell a hydrometer for coolant, and your coolant/water can be determined by this, depending on the temperature your vehicle operates in. Usually a 60/40 mix is good. However remember that the cheaper the coolant is usually the more diluted it is so although it has a pretty colour it is well worth testing the intensity.

Where can i get a free workshop manual for a ford fiesta courier van


have a look on this site as there are many manuals in PDF format ,but i would like to know why you need a manual for a ford fiesta van as they are so basic ,if their isnt one go to halfords and pick up a haynes manual ,yes i know they are written by mechanical engineers and not associated members of the institute of road transport engineers and every one based on an actual strip down by who ?? as the only legible thing is the pretty pictures and the wiring diagrams.But it can be useful as a tea tray as its a wipe clean plastic cover.

Heating has suddenly stopped working


Start by cheking the coolant level first and add as necessary. If it is low, add, and then start and turn on the heat to full and check operation. it is possible that you have a small leak and have not noticed an operating/overheating issue. Let me know if you need anything further.

Adding water to a 1996 ford contour?


Check the level of the coolant in the reservoir at least once a month. Be sure to read and understand precautions when servicing your vehiclein this chapter.If the engine coolant has not been checked for a long period of time, the engine coolant reservoir may eventually empty. If this occurs, add engine coolant to the coolant reservoir. For more information refer toAdding engine coolantin this chapter.
Automotive fluids are not interchangeable; do not use engine coolant, antifreeze or windshield washer fluid outside its specified function and vehicle location.

Check page 169 from Ford-Contour-Owners-Manual for other details.

Hope helps (remember comment andf rated this).

What kind of oil should i put in my ford focus year 2000.


Hi,

You do not say what size engine is in the car and this is important as different engines require different oils.

Therefore have a look at this handy oil checker - you can input the exact vehicle details yourself and it will advise on the correct type of oil for that vehicle.

Ford focus estate diesel headlight bulb change


Halfords just did mine for £15 including the bulb. When I got there the other one had gone so I had to get both done. If you want to save money, just get one done and watch how they do it.
