Ford Falcon 2000 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Falcon here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Ford Falcon: LPG conversion
You could, but it’s a lot of work and I wouldn’t recommend it. If you really want to do it the best way might be to buy a wrecked petrol-engined Falcon and swap over the engine and fuel system. You could also extend your range by fitting a second LPG tank.
Leaking transmission in Falcon
It's probably a leaking seal, but you have to first determine where the leak is coming from. The best course is to locate the source of the leak and replace it, but there are additives available that claim to recondition seals and stop leaks. You should be able to find them at your local automotive store.
Ford Falcon: Upgrading to bigger wheels
The only thing you should be concerned about is the affect it might have on the speedo readings. Check the overall diameter of the 16-inch wheels and tyres and compare them to the diameter of the 25-inch wheel and tyre combination. If they're close to the same I don't believe you would have any trouble fitting them to the 2000 AU.
Ford Falcon 2001: Rattling sound
You've probably got a number of problems. The rattling noise and the vibration could be the exhaust hitting part of the body; the overheating could be a radiator issue.
