Maintenance section of the site

G'day all,

Just thought I'd pass on some recent feedback from a member in case anyone can help out. I'm going to suggest doing a search on the forums for fuel economy advice, but we are going to start needing maintenance tutorials. I can do the oil change one, but that's about as far as my knowledge goes.

"Hi,

congratulations to your Ford Falcon web pages - I finally managed to
identify the exact model that I have (GLi ED).

However, it's a pity that the maintenance section is empty. Do you know
any web pages related to the maintenance of the Ford Falcons? Mine is a
fuel guzzler, it takes about 15-16 litres/100 km, contrary to the specs
of 12 litres/100 km which I found on your page, and I wonder what I can
do to reduce that a little or whether the car just needs some basic
maintenance.

Cheers,

Enno"

Re: Maintenance section of the site

i think a maintanence section would be great, were people come up with different tips and ideas on how to do things. not just oil changes but maybe disc brake changes and possibly rebuilds of parts.

Re: Maintenance section of the site

G'day all,

Just to confirm the situation, we have had a maintenance page since the new site was opened, but it has said 'coming soon' for all these centuries.

Thanks to everyone who has volunteered, and I've brought the matter to the higher-ups. All we have to do is co-ordinate the effort and we can get right up to date in no time.

I'll keep everyone posted. Thanks again!

Jack T

Re: Maintenance section of the site

Averaging 12l/100kms here with an EMS 8860 which needs a better tune. I think I could get it down to 10s or lower.
