Here is my Kuga, 2013 2.0 TDCI 4x4 auto.

First job that needs doing is :

Disassemble the rear to fit a new towbar !

I went for a swan neck with a dedicated 13 pin electrics,

It’s a straightforward job to do!, other than the little black clips for the mud flaps !
All back together and check all the lights and rear park sensors !,

The 13 pin socket is fitted, but I’ll connect them tomorrow!.

The kuga is running great,
Just done a service, oil & filter, fuel filter & air filter.
No difference to servicing the Mondeo ! Other than the fuel filter being under the bonnet 😎.

I didn’t get much of a service history with the car,
So I’ve just changed the the auto transmission oil & filter !.

The oil looks dirty in the bucket !

But it wasn’t too bad!, so has been changed at some point !

The filter was black, so it’s doing it’s job.
It was a genuine ford one too !.

New tyres next !

They were not to bad, just light surface rust
Quick clean & rub down, then 2 coats of hammerite Matt silver paint !

Forgot to take a picture before I put the wheels back on 🙄

Next will be new timing belt & water pump,
Then get the wheels refurbished!

Thanks Steve

Not much to report, the kuga is running & driving great!.
Had the timing belt, water pump & auxiliary belt done @116000, just done oil & filter change.

Towed my caravan for the first time with the kuga, didn’t even feel like it was there ! Awesome drive to north wales stayed for a week !.

Other ford related news, her in doors car, a green KA aka the snot bubble.
Have just change the thermostat housing because it had a leek!

Just as well the plastic was so brittle, it was breaking apart like room temp chocolate! If that makes sense!

Notice the seal has expanded so cause of the leak! ?

New one came complete, new thermostat, temp sensor & gasket!

All running great now !

Other car related stuff, my daughters car non ford 🤔,
Came up with a misfire on cylinder 3, so swapped the coil packs around & it still came up number 3!
So change the plugs !
