  1. Re: BFII XR6 Turbo ZF Auto slipping on kick down

    Maybe instead of a top up get the transmission fluid replaced. Its a bit expensive but I found it worthwhile when I had it done.

    No I don't think they have changed it but I haven't seen it recently. It was still basic white last time.

    Re: fg dash change to xr

    Yep that is the idea but it is a bit rough when you need a tow because your cluster stopped working.

    Anyone getting nervous after the reported Kuga fires in South Africa. The Aussie ones come from the same factory in Spain.
  8. Re: What does the 'MKll' mean in Ford Kuga MKll Titanium

    They probably thought that people would think Mk11 stood for "mark eleven" rather than "mark two". They seem to cope with R on a gearlever meaning Reverse rather than race!

    If you look at the circuit board in the HIM you will find that has zener diodes on it. They are 1% tolerance versions (not commonly available) and they were used as a cost down instead of using...

    Re: Fpv logo

    As far as I can recall the GT had a GT badge and the Ford oval was replaced with the FPV logo. There wasn't any extras.

    I like the Nissan EV but find the highlighting on the bonnet a bit much but as it is a concept I could live with it. It does show that designers will have to come to grips with designing interesting...

    Re: Indicators flashing double speed

    I don't think it has a relay at all. It is controlled by an IC on the cluster pcb. The BA Falcon certainly was I remember buying the ICs for the protos.

    If you try the swap and it works then the problem, most likely, is that the white plastic bits on the switch are worn. You need to disassemble the switches again.

  24. Re: health prescription for Australian car manufacturing

    Monash Uni can 3d print a jet engine so technology is moving fast so hopefully it will put the GM and Fords etc out of business and you will be able to do an individual design of the vehicle you want.

    I think a Thai built "Commodore" is much more likely than Chinese one same with the Falcon replacement. Don't be surpised if eventually the 'Commodore" is made in Indonesia as GM is establishing a JV...
