      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. Hello. Obviously I'm new to the forums and I hate to start off my time here by posting about a problem I'm experiencing but I really could do with some help. I own a 1997 Fiesta Chicane, 1,388 cc petrol and 119,000 on the clock. I consider the car to be in excellent condition throughout but recently the car has been a bit sluggish starting up and quite a bit of white smoke now constantly blows out of the exhaust. It has been using up oil faster than normal but the powder inside the end of the exhaust is dry and there's no smell of petrol. The smoke smells sooty. If you have any idea what this could be down to I'd appreciate you taking the time to reply. Is it going to be cheap to put right or is my wallet in for a shock?
