Hey Everybody,

I'm looking for a pdf version of the workshop manual, either gregory's or the genuine ford workshop manual.

Can anyone help me?? As the old max ellery's I have laying around is useless..... and I don't have $60 to pay for a new gregorys.

I hope one of you can help.

Regards,

John.

Hey,

The car appears to be using an excessive amount of coolant.

I filled the system up yesterday, and went for a 30min drive and came back. Today when I went to go shopping, the coolant light came on and I checked the bottle and was empty.

I checked all the hoses and made sure there was no cracks in the bottle. Temperature stays low.

I have no idea. Thats is why I need a decent workshop manual...hehe

Thanks,

John.

Did you check all your hoses? Main culprit hose would be heater hose giving way. Since it is winter you'd be using it more often so more inclined to go "oh snap" on you.

Located under the BBM.

Could also be a welsh plug. Put some water back into the system and let the car idle with the heater on. Then try to spot the leak.

My thoughts:
Check for leaks
Or maybe there is too much pressure and its venting it out.

But I can see why the manual would be handy.

You could also place the overflow hose into a small plastic coke bottle and see if its loosing coolant through the resivour cap. If its original its likely to have a cracked seal. If there is any coolant at all in the bottle after a short drive replace the cap.

can you actually see the lost coolant - if not it is quite possibly the dreaded blown head gasket and you are losing water internally

i got haynes and max ellery manuals in pdf format on cd if that helps
