Abs Work

QHi Fast Ford, I'm having trouble Willi my Siena Sapphire Cosworth in as much as the abs light won't go out. When I turn the ignition on I can hear the abs pump working, and it builds up pressure and then stops like it should do. I've also checked the brake fluid level as my mate told me this could sometime cause a problem. However the light is still on and won't go out. Have you got any ideas what could be causing it because I'm running out of ideas now Tommy, Letchworth A when the abs light...

Advantages Of The Puma Engine

As they say there's no replacement for displacement, and although the Puma engine is only 100cc larger than the zetec S unit, when coupled with the VCT and slight design tweaks made to tne Puma s 1.7, It gives an Instant 25bhp and 10ft lb gain. Mot only that but the Puma engine responds really well to simple mods such as air filters, exhausts, cams, and remaps, so the foundations for a decent little engine are already laid down. Trie vct also helps make the Puma engine more refined, more...

Display Cars

There Is something subtle that we like ibaut the blue ones It wasn't just inside the Mountune home that everything was happening either. Outside, the car parks were filled with a selection of well modified fast Fords, and the atmosphere was more like a club event than that of a company's open day. The atmosphere was chilled and relaxed and, much like a regional meet, light-hearted banter and customary mickey-taking filled the air. In amongst all this though, owners were also discussing their...

Escort Cosworth

Event, Jason took a step back and surveyed the damage. The bumper took mos of the impact and it needed some love anyway. After all that stress I took the car off the road. I have friends with Escort Cosworths and they were influencing me, telling me to tidy up the engine bay. We can sense where this is going to go I started to do that but before I knew it, I had removed the engine altogether he shrugs. This was the beginning of a long restoration and power hike. finally settling on a T6,...

Mk7

M B a good car to drive, fresh and new its very smooth. The Mk7 is the la est and arguably greatest in the long Fiesta legacy. The chassis is a belter but in standard guise they do seem to lack a certain something. However Ryan Doherty was quick to get that sorted. I actually had a Mini before I passed my driving test, the teenager tells us, but when I was old enough to drive I jist felt it was a little too small and cramped. I had seen the Mountune Fiestas and liked them, I started to look...

Sierra Rs Cosworth Tightening Torques

Borne cut of a desire to race, the whale-tailed RS500 was a monster of its time. The 500 was a simple build number requirement to meet homologation rules which then allowed the racer to dominate the BTCC and burn the Sierra in the history books. Separating itself frcm the already cult arid outlandish Sierra Cosworth, the 500 came with over 20 significant engine tweaks and further aerodynamic aids. These additions, along with changes to the rear pick-up points on the suspension, would give Ford...
