    Hey guys, just about to service the 4 speed in my 04 model BA XT, as it's just about hit 160,000kms (I got it at 96K and have only changed the oil at 116K)

    Anyway, the box still shifts fine, and still drives pretty well, but I've noticed that it's taking a little longer before it'll shift after you have moved the selector (mainly from drive to reverse).

    So I'm going to do the filter and fluid, and I'm going to drop a bottle of Lucas Transmission Fix into it.

    Anyone used this stuff before in the BTR boxes?

    I have in my XF ute (it had a BW51 in it) and found it to be pretty good.

    Just don't want to go stuffing up a otherwise healthy auto with something that's suppose to be preventative maintenance...

    Thanks guys.

      Hey guys had a issue this morning, I opened the radiator cap to check and left it opened as I warmed my ba turbo after a while I noticed the engine shaking and the temp gauge went up and the car wasn't coping I quickly closed it down opened the bonnet and saw the steam coming out and noticed I forgot the cap off. Topped it up took about 3 litres. Now she isn't running right and gauge is sitting about half way all the time usually sits between quarter and half way. Any advise why it did this and what I should do?

        Hey guys 2 things going on with my ba 2004 xr8 ute

        Hey guys , 2 things going on with my ba 2004 xr8 ute .

        1st - very randomly at speeds anywhere between 80 to 120 k sometimes I get a slight steering wobble so I slow down and apply brakes then it shakes badly until I stop . Take off again do the same speed and nothing happens .

        I've had wheel alignments done , tyres balanced , and randomly it will shake again ?? any thoughts ???

        2nd - I wash the car , then I can hear water gushing from the inside when I'm driving , this goes on for days ???? Any thoughts ???

        Cheers Bruce

          Cheers Guys, Im just chasing some advice... I have a BA wagon and it has been parked in the same place overnight... About 25 minutes ago the horn/alarm started sounding... I used the remote to unlock the car but the alarm didn't stop until I turned the ignition on... I started the car and moved it closer to the house and locked it using the key... I only got a few metres away and it went off again... I checked all the doors and tailgate were closed properly... It hasn't happened again.... Anything I should be checking for?? Thanks...

            hey guys i did a post the other week and had problems with a Boss 260, i received a lot of feed back , that was greatly appreciated! i followed as much advice as i could, but ended up just getting a recommended mobile mechanic in, under normal conditions or faults all suggestions most like likely would have fixed the issues, but the problem was the fuel has been contaminated with water, making the issue, well hard to detect, unless you know what your looking for.. so if anyone one has a similar issue and have got fuel around coomera, upper coomera, within 2 to 4 weeks, check your spark plugs, they may look something like this.

                Hey guys, just picked up a BF Fairmont sedan and i am looking at fitting a towbar.

                I have already sourced a second hand heavy duty/hayman reece style one and was wondering on degree of difficulty. It has the cut out that pulls out of the rear bar but does the whole rear bar need to come off to bolt it in or just straight up from underneath.

                It came with a trailer plug so i take it there is a grommet that it will feed into the boot and plug and play near the tail lights. is that right? and left or right tail light?

                Thanks for any help

                    2004 BA XR6T 175k's Serviced every 5,000klm's Total cost including vehicle purchase over 25k Rego until March 2017

                    Thousands spent with plenty of receipts. GPS Alarmed with smart phone remote fuel cut off $16,500 ono

                    Car has always been maintained to its best level with no outstanding repairs required. Serviced and built to its current level only by Gary at Bargo Automotive Care except for recent control arm/blade bush replacements and rear screen seal being done by my local Pedders store and O'Brien Windscreens.

                    Trophy winner Best XR6/XR8 with AFMCC entry at All Ford Day Eastern Creek 2016.

                    Car was purchased stock 09/15 and has had every preventative maintenance component replaced since which includes lowered springs and ride height suitable shocks and brakes. No short cuts have ever been taken or any repairs ever delayed. Will pass any inspection.

                    As stated it is a serious consideration and will only be sold if a reasonable price is achieved with consideration between what money has been spent and what would be an acceptable price to depart with it. I am not expecting to achieve the money spent after the purchase price but any less than serious offers will simply be ignored and you can personally go and spend the money to build one of your own. And no its not an FPV so please do not offer it as a bargaining tool. If it's an FPV you're after, then shop around for one.

                    I have a few questions ,hoping someone here can shed some light for me

                    #1: I am going to build a Barra to handle a lot of boost ,can I use a n/a block and throw away the Pistons and rods and use the standard n/a crankshaft ?

                    #2: is there any difference in turbo location between the ba/bf turbo exhaust manifold and fg turbo manifold or are they the same ?

                    #3: has anyone used the precision turbos bolt on 6466 turbo and what sort of power would I expect with a lot of boost and e85 fuel ?

                    Thankyou guys in advance

                      Hey everyone just got a few question

                      Hey everyone, just got a few question..

                      Ive got a 2007 bf mk11 xr6, and having troubles with the icc.

                      One day I was driving the car and all of a sudden the icc stopped working completely, no music, air-con etc.

                      The next day it was all good again.

                      It did this a few more times until it wouldst turn on again.

                      I pulled the icc out and checked everything and all seemed good, put it back in and started working again.

                      Soon enough it suddenly stopped working, i tried pulling it out, checking all connections, fuses etc and it simply wont turn on again.

                      what could cause this? and how to fix it?

                        Hey all just a couple questions for those who may know.

                        I brought a manual conversion for my ba wagon a few months ago out of a ba ute but the box itself was stuffed. So today i brought another in hopes its in better condition (will find out when i tear it down) though the new box doesnt have a speed sensor like the stuffed 1 did so that brings me to my questions.

                        #1: why doesnt it have a speed sensor and can i use the rear extension housing with the sensor on the good box?

                        #2: since the conversion came from a ute can i use the ecu in my wagon?

                        #3: what clutch is recommended for n/a?

                          Just after a second opinion..

                          I put some china bay rear led brake lights in after the "proper ones" from jaycar didnt function correctly. (Lights where on all the time without foot on brake pedal).

                          After installing the china bay ones they work perfectly with the pedal and what not however the park lights and cluster lights light when I press the brake pedal come on.

                          The cluster and park light light up then slowly fade to about 50 percent intensity before sustaining until I remove foot off pedal.

                          Any thoughts?

                            Hey guys having a problem with my 03 BA XR6. Having a decently loud hum coming from some corner of the car. I've pulled apart both sides of the front wheel and checked the brakes n all but couldn't see anything so I tightened it all back up but that didn't help. The humming stops when the wheel is turning left irrelevant to speed or angle. Noise gets worse the faster I go, pushing the clutch in doesn't help so I've taken that out of the equation same with taking it out of gear whilst Rolling. I'm out of ideas and just wanting to see what you guys might think it could be.

                                  We are putting together a document showing all the BA, BF and FG colours.

                                  We aim to gather the following information:

                                  - paint code *just the code don't need a photo of your vehicle details

                                  - what years, models will you also see the colour on *if you know :P

                                  Colours will be demonstrated with photos of members cars, so... show us your beasts ;)

                                  If you found any problems with the colour or something you would deem important for someone interested in the colour, please feel free to add that too. Such as it being closely related to another colour or that it has fading problems etc :)
