Question about Ford Fiesta

1 Answer

Hi, i need to put water in my Ford Ka because the light is flashing and havent done it for a while. There are three tanks under the bonnet, one says power steering fluid so i assume its not that one. Then there is one in the top left hand corner, i opened it and there was a sort of red liquid in there. I put some water in that because i thought it might be that one but i am worried i might have done something wrong. Can anybody help please? Thanks NOTE I SELECTED FORD FIESTA ON THE DROP DOWNS BECAUSE THERE WAS NOT A KA OPTION. THE CAR INVOLVED IS A FORD KA

Hi, I'm not familiar with the Ka,but did the light go out after adding water? There are only 2 car fluids that are red. One is auto transmission fluid and one is a type of coolant. The transmission reservoir is in the pan, so I doubt you could have seen red fluid in the transmission without pulling up the dipstick. You can also try disconnecting the level sensor on the reservoir that you added water to. If the coolant light goes on and off when you short the terminals in that connector together (use a paper clip), then that is the coolant reservoir. My guess is you got it right.

Indicators on my Ford Ka flash once or twice and stop


Could be various things. Can be the indicator stalk - the actual lever that you push down / pull up inside the car. Take cowling off check wire connector.
(Is it both ways it does this?)
OR, simply the bulb and/or the bulb holder? They get corroded. Whip the bulb out and see the bottom metal part of it. Is it manky / corroded. Is the seat where the bulb sits wet and have white residue?
It does sound like the switch is simply jumping out from the lever.
Ya know if you indicate, it clicks itself off as you straighten up your wheels? Try looking see if the switch between steering wheel and stalk is broken or conflicting / inhibited by foreign bodies? I'm more the under bonnet amateur stuff really, sorry.

Ford explorer fuel tank change


this is pretty easy. You first have to remove the skid plate which is held on by three bolts then once you have that done you need to disconnect the fuel fill tube. which is the three inch tube coming off the back of the tank. next remove the breather tube right next to the fill tube. then you will see two metal straps holding the tank itself. their should be one bolt each on the ends you can see. dont worry about the other ends they are a tongue and groove type setup. once you have the one side off the side against the frame will slip right off. Be sure to have a jack under the tank so it dosnt drop on you. but once you have the tank down disconnect the pump by turning on the ring that runs around its top. You may have to put a piece of wood on one of the tines and smack it with a hammer to knock it loose. once that is done jack up the rear driver side of your truck and pull the tank right ou. put it back in, in the reverse order.
