      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. seatbelt light keeps flashing

    hi mate, the old seatbelt clips you removed would have a switch inside them, so wen you push click your seatbelt it would engage the switch, causing the 2 wires to short, so in your case it should be ok to put a piece of wire between the 2 connectors, this will let the car know that you have clicked your seatbelt in. can' gaurentee this tho, cheers mick
  2. escort mk5 fuel problem

    there are a few things that can cause your fuel to be used up to much, on carb models the carb needs cleaning out, and on all models could be air filter clogged up. or spark plugs worn or defected. try changing your air filter and plugs, also give it an oil change, could see some good results, not sure if this will help but worth a try. cheers mick
  3. escort oil lite prob

    when an oil lite comes on, it means one thing only, that your oil level is low. so in your case the oil is at the rite level untill u brake, thats wen the oil pushes forward away from level senser and reads no oil, once you pull of again it will be force to the back and touching the senser, saying it's ok. the only other thing i can think it can be is your oil is way to thin so it splashes about in the sump. that's all i can think it is mate. cheers mick
  4. engine revs up and down
