Puma Genuine Ford rear arch protectors

Any Puma this old would have some sort of rust.
I have done my arches (with filler and lasted two years so far), and sills have had to be repaired the past two years running.
Sounds like run of the mill stuff really, depends on asking price!

Ford Puma Won't Start

Try going to Halfords and ask for a free battery check, they also do a coil pack test, maybe this.

Also look around and see if the rocker cover gasket is not leaking oil into the spark plugs.

And as one lsat effort start the engine with some throttle as if it has been flooded.

Ford Puma 2000 W-Reg 1.7 Red £150

Other peple would advise to manually crank the engine to ensure it hasn't seized before trying to start it with a battery.

Loss of acceleration and popping sound!

Does the sound happen when stationary? If so try to get someone else to push down on the air box then you will know if it is a bad seal.

If so try and get a slightly bigger screw (width) to hold the leaky box down!

MOT fail...advice please

Not really, look on eBay and you will see maybe £100 parts and £60 labour I would imagine.

Not sure swivel pins are. But the above cost includes both sides as this would be best practice. Also set aside £30 for wheel alignment afterwards.

Not sure but I'd think a new engine would be in order? £400 for a good one, make sure you get the electronics loom too. Someone with better knowledge than me able to help!

If you ask Halrford to do a free battery check they also do the coil pack.
Try cleaning ICV too.

Ok - what did I miss?!!!

After spending £3700 I would expect some sort of project roadmap, realistic timescales and better communications rather than 'it'll be done when it's done', even if you were saving money!

Nothing I saw warranted the reaction got, so don't be too anxious about it! :ok:

Your high expenditure has been diagnosed as the Puma bug! Highly contagious and hard to get rid of! :grin: I have been lucky in this sense as my bills have always been a few £100's per year but similar probs as yours (and others :o ) so spread out the cost.

You seem very knowledgeable about this stuff so I will ask you (and others!) about cylinder wear and tear:- If modern cars (e.g. the new Fiesta 2018) can disable on the fly certain cylinders then surely this will abnormally and quickly wear down these cylinders, ultimately rendering the engine usele...
