      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. sump replacement

    I need to replace the sump on my 1998 1.3 fiesta encore (endura engine) due to serious rust. Anyone got any tips on what sort of job this is likely to be. The research I have done so far has produced conflicting results from being a PITA to a reasonably easy job. The haynes manual indicates the exhaust manifold and starter motor need to come off. Also is the gasket a one piece or four piece for this model? Also any advice on where to get a new sump at a reasonable cost. Seem to be about £40-00 on ebay to £120-00+ from Ford. Cheers Whitey
