Re: Check engine light on solid

Changed the battery to a known good one and still doesn't start. Is there a way to test the alternator without the car being on?

Any help on how to read the engine code would be most helpful.

Re: Check engine light on solid

Its the engine with a cross through it, the battery has gone flat due it to being sitting there for a few months - I charged the battery all day before giving it a boot.

The engine with a cross through it is the check engine light right? Am I stupid as heck?

partsouq.com - Anyone used it before?

Hey guys, Has anyone used https://partsouq.com/ before? I just found it last night and it seems like an absolute godsend for fasteners and difficult bolts (The long bolts in the rear knuckles and the camber bolts.) Just want to make sure its totally legit. I'll probably make a smaller order from it ...

Re: Bosh Immobiliser- by pass Ford Probe 16V

Possibly the dumbest question on this forum -

Is there a specific wire I should use for linking the pairs? The guide mentions 10a standard wire, but google doesn't give a result, which means I have no idea what to do next.

Thanks as usual your all great people!

Its right beside the fuel t...

Rear lateral control arm bolt

https://i.postimg.cc/jwc8G9qS/IMG-20190825-204811.jpg Hey guys, Not even sure what I'm hoping for but this nut is driving me crazy. Its the left rear lateral control arm. Its rounded, and I cant get an angle grinder/hacksaw anywhere near it because of the ridiculous shaped metal around it. I'm not ...

Re: Rear through-bolts

Makes sense... The shock is still attached, I didn't think that would make a difference.

Thanks.
