Hi,
I was wondering if anyone could recommend where I should take my BA XR8 ute to get serviced, I have just had enough of the ford dealership. The car still idles quiet rough and they reckon they fixed it! Please help.
Thanks

Try putting your foot flat to the floor and at the same time attempt to start the car whilst its still flat. The car wont start :roll:
Then turn off the ignition and start it as normal and see if that fixes it. That procedure resets your throttle and may help.

Honestly im not sure mate i service my own cars as really its quite simple and i do my BA every 7500 kms, And every so often my mate who is a qualified mechanic will check the car over on the hoist at his work and update the log books for me. The only time i take my car to Ford is to get the turbo bolts tightened which cost me 88 bux because he refuses to burn his hands doing it.
