Your heater control valve is faulty, these are a common fault and are mounted on the bulkhead with 2 rubber hoses and a 2 wire plug in the side. They are commonly found on ford ka and ford fiesta. A copy part can be bought from eBay for £30. Not much point in buying one 2nd hand as they commonly fail. Hope this is of help.

My ford ka has started to judder

It is probably ignition failure. Hard to diagnose with out witnessing it. I wud replace the wires to the spark plugs and the spark plugs themselves. If you take it to a service shop they will probably do that first and charge you more.

I just bought a new 2011 Ford Escape. The second day I drove it the speedometer went from 0 - 100 just backing out of my driveway. What is happening here?

There has been a recall from Ford where the speed control engine cover is malfunctioning. Take it to your local Ford dealer and they will secure that cable @ no charge. Good luck.

I bought a 2001 ford ka, the car still seems to be running hot. By that i mean from a cold start is able to use the heater on full heat within a minute, the engine is getting hot really fast and the...

ford KA has the same "problem"as some other cars in as much you should "vent the topmost hot hose,after flushing or refilling the system."...with the engine running and the cap off the expansion tank.undo the clip on the topmost hot hose and allow any air to vent(wear rubber gloves, cos its real hot...)then top up the tank.

You may have an air bubble in your coolant system. If so, use a large coolant funnel designed to purge out air bubbles. The funnel attaches to your radiator with cap removed. Check it out on line. It costs about $25.
