      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.

    Focus 02 reg
  1. My Ford Focus (1.6, 02 reg, Ghia) has some sort of engine problem. Symptoms: 1) Orange warning light (with picture of engine) on is lit up, then when I go up to higher revs (circa 2600+) for a reasonable length of time it settles into a steady flash. If i am going along the motorway it is flashing. 2) At low revs (sub 2500) it is sluggish and juddery as though it is really struggling, as far as I can tell this seems to be true of all the gears. 3) There are no visible leaks, the oil & water is at the required level. I have no problem starting it. Anyone got any ideas?? From some prolonged googling it seems that it might be emissions related? But that wouldnt explain the 'sluggishness' at low revs...?
