Are you having mechanical problems with your Mondeo, Laser or Telstar?
I bet you've been to a handful of forums, posting up help threads on how to fix this, or where to find that. That's understandable - who wants to be paying on road costs for a broken car, right?
Unfortunately, we cannot...

Hi, I have an Australian KQ Laser 2002 (BJ ZM 1.6L Manual) which has the MECS II diagnostic connector under the bonnet (OBD0).
No one has produced a service manual for the Australian model (Other than Ford which is unavailable) and it is different to the US model workshop manual which has OBD2...

Hi When the fuel level is down below 1/4 in my 2002 Laser, the car surges under full acceleration. It accelerates then dies, then accelerates again and so on. I think it might be the in-tank fuel filter which is partially blocked and won't let enough fuel into the pump when the fuel level in the...
The KF Laser has two diaphragms for its vacuum advance. One is above the throttle plates like usual and the other is on manifold.. Now I've confirmed it's not a retard and advance system as both diaphragms advance the module.
So it will advance as usual under throttle but it will also advance...
Hi I've just been told by the 4th RAC patrolman that the alternator is overcharging in my AT Telstar. Shall I just replace it as the regulator is inside I suspect... It certainly is not an outside un-bolt unit like a Bosch.
I have taken the alternator off, ie removed all the bots and wires and removed the drive belt.
however im not sure how to actually take the darned thing out of the engine bay.....i only have simple hand tools to do the job...so jacking the car up (apart from a simple wheel jack) is...
Hi, just wondering if anyone knows the part number to this seal? Or if you know the dimensions it has to be?
I've got a dangerously sticky & unpredictable throttle/accelerator cable in my 89 Tx5. Has anyone had any similar issues & if so how as it addressed. I think it could be the cable..?? Because when depressed it stays down and sometimes 'creeps' but when you operate the...
For the past year if not longer I have had to run my Laser on 98 Petrol as running anything lower results in it pinking under load. I have tried 95 and that was somewhat better but to get no pinking at all it has to be 98 and here in New Zealand 98 is about $2.11 at the moment (was around...
Can someone in the know help me with a persistent oil leak in my AT Telstar. Just before Christmas I had to replace the front crankshaft seal (along with the water pump, T.belt & harmonic balancer..$225+) as it was so bad the alt & power steering belt were getting...
Hi guys as the title suggests I seem to be getting low voltage to the fuel pump in my 86 AS turbo Telstar and I cant find a workshop manual that covers the 2.0 turbo let alone anything on the net regarding AS turbo wiring diagrams? Its kind of doing my head in as there seems to be alot of wiring...
just bought a 95 kj2 ford laser, auto

One of the cars I have owned had a small key that fitted a lock switch in the A pillar on the passenger side. Turning the key...

Hello to anyone who can & is willing to help,

After the first start up one...
