Ford Falcon: LPG availability

Answered by CarsGuide 19 Jun 2015

I wouldn't be at all concerned about LPG being available, but I would strongly advise that you do your homework on where you can buy LPG before you leave home. The distribution network of LPG in country areas has never been as comprehensive as it is in cities, and that's what you've found.

Talk to the dealer about recalibrating the transmission to avoid the problem. They should have a fix for it.

Ford Falcon 2009: Turbo tuning

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Jun 2014

Dealers don't do that sort of work any more; they simply change oil, give it a bit of a grease, and hand it back to you. You obviously want more, and for that you have to go to a specialist mechanic who has the knowledge and experience, and equipment to do what you want.

Ford Falcon 2008: Rattling sound

Answered by CarsGuide 10 Jan 2014

If you're not sure whether it's coming from the diff or the auto trans you need to get some help to isolate it before you have any chance of finding the cause. Changing the diff oil would have been the first thing I would have suggested if it was the diff, the next would to suggest it could be a bearing, but that needs a specialist to sort it out. An auto transmission expert would say you should change the trans oil every 25,000 km or so, or every year, and there's good reason to do that if you do a lot of towing. They would also say you should do a full service every 100,000 km or so, and again it's more important to do that if you tow a lot.

Take it back to your dealer and ask him to reset the computer to soften the gear selection.  He should have a recalibration available to do it for you.
