Best of Crash Rallye HD - Compilation 2013
Rally Crashes happened in 2012 and 2013 . Car accidents because of drifts .
The production-based cars with 1.6 L direct injection turbo engine and four-wheel drive are built to
World Rally Car regulations for racing across tarmac, gravel and snow. The
power output is limited to around 300 bhp (225 kW). Current cars in the
championship include the Citroën DS3 WRC, Ford Fiesta RS WRC and Mini WRC.
The WRC was formerly held for Group A and Group B rallycars. However, due
to the increasing power, lack of reliability and a series of fatal
accidents on the 1986 season, Group B was permanently banned. Later, in
1997, the Group A cars evolved into the WRC car spec, to ease the
development of new cars and bring new makes to the competition. In 2011,
new rules were introduced to encourage more manufacturers (and privateers)
to take part, because the recent economic downturn had prompted several
manufacturers to leave the championship.
Cars in the Production Car World Rally Championship are limited to
production-based cars homologated under Group N rules. Cars in the Super
2000 World Rally Championship are homologated under Super 2000 rules. Most
cars in the Junior World Rally Championship are homologated under Super
1600 rules, but Group N and selected Group A cars can also contest the
Starting in 2013,a new category of rally cars known as Group R were
introdued as a replacement to the Group A and Group N rally categories,
with cars classified under one of six categories based on their engine
capacity and type, wheelbase, and drivetrain. As a result no cars will be
homologated under Group A and Group N regulations and instead will be
reclassified under Group R. Parallel to this, the Super 2000 and Production
Car World Championships were restructured; Super 2000 and Group N cars were
merged into a single championship known as World Rally Championship-2
alongside R4 and R5 cars, whilst the Production Car World Championship was
completely reimagined as the World Rally Championship-3 for two-wheel drive
cars complying with R1, R2 and R3 regulations.
WRC Teams and Drivers
20 different manufacturers have won a World Rally Championship event,
and a further ten have finished on the podium.
Suzuki and Subaru pulled out of the WRC at the end of the 2008
championship, both citing the economic downturn then affecting the
automotive industry for their withdrawal. Mini and Ford both pulled out of
the WRC at the end of the 2012 championship, due to a similar economic
downturn affecting the European market.
A typical WRC team will consist of about 40 people on the events, with a
further 60--100 at the team base.
Manufacturers and manufacturer-backed teams usually have two or three
drivers participating in each rally who are eligible to score points. The
total number of crews (driver and his co-driver) in the rallies varied from
47 (Monte Carlo and Mexico) to 108 (Great Britain) during the 2007
In 2012, The Ford World Rally Team and The Mini WRC Team both announced
their departure from the World Rally Championships for the 2013 season.
Volkswagen and Hyundai will make their return to the championship in 2013
and 2014, respectively.Best of Crash Rallye HD Best of Crash Rallye HD Best

2001 Mercury Cougar V6 Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2001 Mercury Cougar V6. I
take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car
while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling
cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it,
start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
Ford Fiesta, Ka, Puma heater control valve - failure of pattern-part HCV
This is an in-depth analysis of why a cheap pattern-part Heater Control
Valve failed after a few months normal use.
I've returned to the subject of Ford heater control valves (HCV) because
it's an important topic and one that affects several Ford models sold in
the UK, Europe and in the US. Earlier this year I made several 'how to'
videos on how to replace your Fiesta, Ka, or Puma heater control valve
which are well known to fail in the closed position so no cabin heat or
open position (full heat). There have been incidents where HCV failure has
also been put down to fragments of the unit breaking up and clogging the
cooling system but the common reason for HCV faults is seal failure which
causes either coolant leak from unit 'tell-tale' hole or simple reluctance
to work due to coolant leaking past seals into the solenoid and either
corroding it solid or affecting ability for the coil to provide the
magnetic field needed to move the plunger open or shut. Older HCV's were
sealed so even if it failed the coolant would stay in the system. Later
units have a small hole which allows coolant to flow out if the seals have
let go - which is what happened to my Fiesta a few months ago. This was the
second HCV (bought from an online auction site for £14). In hindsight I
should have bought a Ford or equivilent OEM part as the pattern-part was
cheaply made. As you will see from this video the quality of the materials
for the seals is dubious and the design is such that the main circular
gasket or diaphragm incorporates a very thin extruded seal which wraps
around the plunger stem. This almost paper-thin rubber has torn thus
allowing pressurised hot coolant to flow into the solenoid body and out the
drain hole. This hole is large enough to almost empty the car's coolant
tank in less than 3 miles. I only discovered it after suddenly smelling hot
coolant inside the car while driving. Luckily I managed to top it up and
limp home. The basic Fiesta doesn't have a temperature gauge but it does
have an engine overheat warning light. Luckily this didn't come on as I
spotted the leak in time. Incidentally this HCV is also used in the Mk I
Ford Ka, the Puma and certain Fiesta models. My Fiesta was a 1999 1.3
Endura-E OHV unit.
Several Ford based forums including the Honest John forum mention the HCV
causing overheating. This is either down to the leaking problem I just
described or it's due to pieces of the valve or unit breaking off and
clogging up the narrow radiator, matrix, or cylinder head coolant passages.
In normal operation when the HCV is closed such as during the summer
months, coolant doesn't flow around the heater matrix. Because the system
is in parallel the flow around the engine and radiator isn't affected.
When some owners have reported their heater has failed and the car has
overheated, there are usually other issues with the cooling system such as;
1)Too low a coolant level caused by bad maintenance, or leak from HCV or
other component of the cooling system.
2)Incorrect antifreeze concentration or system being filled with normal
3)Severe rust and limescale build up - especially in the iron block/head
OHV Endura- E engine
5)Hose collapse on low pressure side of the pump caused by old soft hoses.
6)Engine cooling fan failure. Normally spotted when stuck in traffic
7)Pump falt - impeller worn out due to cavitation, plasic impeller
separating from shaft, pump drive belt snapping or slipping.
When my car's original HCV failed in the closed position, the car operated
normally but the heater didn't work. There was no overheating because the
rest of the system was in good condition. Don't underestimate how little it
takes to clog up a cooling system. Think of it a bit like your kettle at
home. Even a thin layer of limescale will reduce heat transfer from head
and block to the water. Add some rust and and low antifreeze concentration
and you can see why engines can overheat.
Antifreeze not only protects against freezing but also from boiling. If
coolant boils it produces air bubbles and vapour which leads to airlocks,
lack of heat transfer and localised thermal stress - especially around
cylinder head. Antifreeze also inhibits corrosion, helps lube the water
pump seals. If you mix your own coolant, use de-ionised or soft water -
never tap water except in an emergency - and aim for a 50:50 ratio of
antifreeze to water. You can buy de-ionised water from retailers that sell
car batteries. Halfords sell five litre containers of de-ionised water.
They also sell ready mixed antifreeze/summercoolant so check your car
handbook to see what type your's needs. Most Fords need the long life red
coolant. Dont mix red with the old blue or green antifreeze. It will gel up
and cause flow and cooling problems.
