Doing 100kms down the M5 towing my excavator. 1 hand on the steering wheel the other on the dash cam formatting the disc. All of a sudden the trailer fishtails across 2 lanes, i looked behind me & i see my wheel hit the gaurd rail & fly in the air at least 60 metres. I managed to pull the Territory into the break down lane & retrieve the wheel. Made in China, check out the hub. The welds snapped nice & clean.

    Would road side assist have the tool to tell me which coils are misfiring — Ford Territory appreciation forum

    Would road side assist have the tool to tell me which coils are misfiring?

    Drove about 5kms then coming out of the round about the car just started shuddering. Stops when I take foot of accelerator and does it even in neutral when I press the accelerator. Any other ideas?

    Just done massive drive not an issue out there now this. Barely made it home. Engine light is now on.

      Thought I d post this for the benefit of others — Ford Territory appreciation forum

      Thought I'd post this for the benefit of others.

      A week or so ago I posted of our TTG going through its locking unlocking hissy fit sometimes after 1/2 hour of stopping the car sometimes immediately, sometimes I'd unlock the car to get in and it would lock itself before I could open the door.

      I had disconnected the battery a couple of times in the hope of fixing it but also because it was doing that often it was driving me insane and would flatten the battery.

      It didn't matter where the car was it was doing it.

      Posted here got a few other ideas that I tried with no luck.

      It went to ford for a service they told me it's almost certainly an actuator, the car was there the whole day and never did it once they said they tried to get it to do it but no luck, so took the car home (5 minute drive) pulled up the driveway got out and it started straight away!!!

      Anyway my neighbour an auto electrician asked if I had 2 remotes which I do he asked how long since I've unlocked and locked the car with the second remote, couldn't remember but had been maybe a couple of months, he suggested trying the second remote so I locked and unlocked with the second remote.

      Wouldn't believe it but that has solved it.

      Car hasn't done it now since and been almost 2 weeks!

      Amazing the little quirks these things have!

        For sale — Ford Territory appreciation forum

        For sale.

        I have a white 6cyl 2004 BA wagon in Sydney.

        I am reluctant to give it to a wrecker or scrappy so the can flog it for a lot more.

        All I want is the same as the wreckers offered $200, worth it for the tyres alone.

        Good motor, 220,00Kms,

        Plugs replaced a few months back.

        Trans rebuilt recently.

        4 new tyres.

        Towing springs and shocks.

        Front end is ok.

        Interior ok, no holes or rips.

        Suspension ok.

        Toe-bar and ball.

        Some diff noise.

        Has a little surface rust around the roof.

        Very driveable, but 1 month out of rego,

        road worthy except for a leaky exhaust.

        Was always a good reliable Car.

        I was going to re-rego it but received a small inheritance so I bought a Territory.

          Hi guys. Got a 2010 sy territory v6 petrol. What revs is it supposed to sit at 100ks. Also park won't register unless it takes the weight of the car. It never used to but my wife always puts it in park take her foot off the brake then puts the hand brake on. We have had many of arguments about it. Is there anything I can adjust?

            For those saying that u need to wait for lights to go off before starting to let fuel prime. Father in law taking us to a party in his xr6 with the lpg injection motor when he turns key on it comes up with a lpg priming and a spinning symbol. Now surely if petrol needed priming it would do the same thing...

              Having the gear selector issue with our territory, it's an early 2005 sx and ford have nla'd the replacement cable. I have found this pic that shows a way to rectify it without replacing the cable but the cable on our car has a different plastic end on it. Has anyone got any idea what I can do to fix it? Have taken a picture of our selector cable end and the other pic is the bolt fix that I don't think will work for the early model. Any help and advice appreciated!

              We had the trans out to replace the welsh plug above the rear main, after putting it all back together again it doesn't like going into drive. Takes about 5 times going from drive to reverse and back to find drive.

                Info Falcon & Territory

                Are u having trouble getting your car to start first go.

                Starts coughs & stalls or just won't start at all.

                All the facebook mechanics will tell you to leave he reds on for a few seconds then crank it. Thats aload of hogwash, what a ridiculous suggestion.

                The issue is ford with the millions spent on designing the falcon & Territory overlooked 1 problem. The recommended battery is a 510 & 550 cca in all. The battery is the issue, put a 650cca & up battery & i gureentee you it will start up every time without an issue. Its not giving enough cranking power to the starter in order for it to spin fast enough to start the engine.

                Don't use Super charge batteries, they are crap.

                Im having an issue with my thermo fans 09 ttg. The high speed fan pretty much runs the whole time its set to come on at 100deg and turn off at 95 but it comes on any temp. Time i checked it came on at around 60deg. Anyone had this issue? There is only one temp sensor at the back of the head isnt there? The ecu would use that to control the fans wouldnt it?

                  Question, so my territory has started doing the unlock lock unlock lock thing it had done it once before in the past not unlocking and locking as frequently as it is now though but last time I disconnected the battery and it was problem solved.

                  This time I've done the same but hasn't fixed the issue, I've noticed when it's doing it the remote won't work and I need to unlock the door with the key (when I've disconnected the battery it's been ok for a short while and the remote works fine) is this usually a faulty actuator? Last year I used one of those eBay repair kits as one of the doors wouldn't lock but that time the faulty actuator didn't cause the doors to lock and unlock, just the affected door wouldn't lock.

                  Any advice is much appreciated.

                    A little experiment — Ford Territory appreciation forum

                    A little experiment:

                    When buying a car, what do you consider more important?

                    Mileage or condition or servicing or trade maintained or enthusiast maintained or what else can you add to this?

                    What makes you decide on looking at or outright buying a car?

                    I have heard a lot in my time about what people expect from car especially when buying. So here's an opportunity to have your say on what you think and lets see what the result is? I for one am very interested in the response.

                    I was in the Auto industry for over 10 years and have seen it all before, my trade contacts and I agree on many issues relating to this topic but its always good to see how non trade people view this issue, looking forward to your responses...

                      Had a bit of a moment with my 05 this past week and was going to post straight away but didn't want to jinx myself. Drove 950kms inland and got 780 off a tank going south (1 passenger, toolbox and suitcase). Thought I was chewing a bit more coming back but by halfway it levelled off and ended up getting 760/70. I'm pretty pleased since I commented not long ago on range and hadn't had a big drive in a while. Recently did filters etc but otherwise she's base model 269000kms on her. Pretty proud considering I've done 4500kms since 19/12 and not a sniffle out of her

                          Ford Ignition Switch Replacement Kit

                          Does your key not spring back to the on position after starting the car causing your accessories to not work (Electric Windows, Radio ETC…)

                          Has your ignition switch fallen apart preventing your car from starting, or turning off if the engine is already running when it happens?

                          Perhaps the key is springing back from start to accessories and you have to hold the key in the on position to allow the car to continue to run.

                          Have you been told you will need to replace the steering column in some cases costing over $2000 for a new column supplied and installed and losing your car to the repair center for at least 1 day sometimes more?

                          Then Look no further

                          So I needed to replace the front diff bushes before big trip next month. Wouldn't have had time to get some off eBay so I sikaflexed one of the rears I salvaged and made a new one out of some hard conveyor belt scraper. Was a bit of a mission because the bushes push in from the inside and to get enough room you need to take the engine mount off that was to much effort so I smashed out the old bushes then die grind'ed the holes so bushes could be pushed from the outside in. Took a bit of fiddling but worked out well for temp fix until I can get the proper ones

                            Space is a bitch for me as i have 5 kids.

                            Either that idea or a 10 or 12 inch in the middle row seats on the floor. Cant put in the boot cause it will deafen the kids

                              I take pics every time I play with my car. Just adding these to show the amount of shit built up in the throttle body. I also noticed an immediate drop in revs and smoother idling after cleaning. The cleaner cost me $14 and took about 10mins tops to do myself.

                              One thing I have noticed is my radio display screen now goes to 'sleep'. I assume it's a change I can make and have wanted to for long drives but I would like to know how to change it back too.

If you would like a decal contact me and I can send one to you. Just let me know the design you want. Multiple colours available however white always works best of vehicle windows. The stickers will be a cut vinyl meaning no background, only the image itself. Including postage $25. PM me for further details. (Sorry for the repost)

                                    Yesterday I had to emergency brake on the motorway and got rear ended, at first look it isn't too bad, but the Commodore ute that hit me went under the rear of my terri.

                                    it bent the Tow bar down almost to right angles, busted the bumper bar and munted the exhaust into the RHR wheel that is all i got a decent look at

                                    My dad (panel beater/assessor) was saying if the towbar has bent the chassis rails that it might be written off by the insurance company, he's gonna have a good look when I go and pick up all of my personal stuff tomorrow.

                                          Looking to sell my territory. A few pros and cons listed below, not really looking to part it out or anything just want to get rid of it as I'm buying the mrs a new car today.

                                          Its a 2006 turbo ghia in grey. 5 seater. 180ks


                                          Flex plate is broken (let go in the burnley tunnel Friday night)

                                          Has a dent in the front right guard.

                                          Missing the centre caps from the rear wheels.

                                          Tint is a bit shitty on the tailgate.


                                          Car makes 356awkw

                                          Mechanically it has had pretty much everything replaced that you would expect to have replaced by 180k
