Question: Re Escort cabriolet EFi. What is my best option to increase performance on this engine. I have heard talk about injectors, ECU's, cams etc. What can I do myself for a fair price. Thanks
Answer: Assuming this is an 8 valve engine, not very much! Apart from the usual air filter and chip method, there isn't a lot I can recommend. You have the option of going the RS turbo route, or maybe a 2 litre zetec bottom end, although both would cost around ?2000 to sort out.

Question: Alan, I have a pug 205 1.6 CTi H plate. I have driven a few other 1.6cc cars and have found that my 205 rev's a lot higher than the rest. when i am doing 60mph my engine is runnung at about 3500rpm is the engine ment to be running this high or do I have a problem with the engine.
Answer: Hi Terry - It's not an engine problem, it's a gearing problem. You may have a mis-match of components somewhere, maybe it's had a diff replaced or a gearbox from another model fitted. 17" wheels would help if you don't fit a tyre with too low a profile.

Question: The car has done 92,000 miles, has a full Renault service history, but keeps overheating according to the guage in the car, but the fan never cuts in, and there is no steam from the header tank when the cap is removed, so is it overheating, any ideas????
Answer: Try replacing the temperature sensor first, it's possibly just a faulty reading. Are you sure the cooling fan works? If you aren't blowing water out, or pressurising much, it doesn't sound like a head gasket failure.
