Question

I have a 3 month old Ford Fiesta 1 litre Eco car. When I check the oil the dip stick is over the maximum limit. I took it back to garage and they say that you do not check the oil when the engine has not been run, you run the engine for a couple of minutes and then check. They said the engine oil expands when stationary. This is contrary to the manual that states check when not in use. Which is correct?

Question

my van was over filled with oil and revved its nuts off but I stalled it straight away. I drained the oil and replaced it with the correct amount. I left it sit for a day hoping the excess oil would run out of the system, It wouldn't start off the key, jump or bump so I bumped it off a tow in 3rd and it started but was burning off the oil, it would idle then before cutting out. I don't think theres a problem with the engine I just think its something silly, is there any thing I could try? is it possible to have the engine flushed so to speak? its a Renault kangoo 1.5 2003

Hi, I have a Ford Mondeo Ghia, KU57 FCD. A "Service Oil" sign has come up on the dashboard. In the handbook this says an oil change is due. I had this done back in October 2014. Is another one due already? How often should this be done? I am female driver and not very technically minded! I use the car for daily short journeys to work and shopping.

Hi - we have a 2006 1.6 TDCi Focus Estate which seems to have developed an oil leak directly under the driver's seat. There are no warning lights and the car runs fine but we are having to top up the oil regularly. Do you have any idea what this might be and whether it is serious? Thanks

Hello, I have a 2003 Ford Fusion 1.4TDCi. It has done 27,000 miles and has just returned from its service, a journey of approx 4 miles. I checked the oil level, as they had placed less oil in this service as they did on the 18000 mile service. The oil is at the correct level, but is already black, not honey coloured as you would expect new oil to be. Would a journey of 4 miles have created this colour change, or should I be suspiciuous? Thank you.

Question

My son has a 1994 Ford Mustang. He put on some fancy expensive oil filter when he changed his oil. It oil pressure began to vary from normal to very low out of normal. I made him change back to the recommended oil filter and oil and the problem seems to have gone away. He still see an oil pressure drop as the engine warms up and increases as he revs the engine. Is it common for a Ford Mustang oil pressure to change from high normal to lower normal in normal running?
