      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.

    ESCORT
  1. ESCORT ZETEC PROBLEMS

    yeah i will then do you think that it could be the ht leads/plugs if they line up ? there is no smoke when it gets up to the area of the rev range that has the problems so hopefully the timing will be slightly out, thanks for your advice
  2. ESCORT ZETEC PROBLEMS

    Thanks for that i done the cambelt myself last time but f**k doing it again will let a garage do it this time! do you suggest maybe replacing the ht leads?? and plugs or something else? again regards for any info
  3. hi all i need some help, i have a ford escort on a 96 on a p-plate zetec-e done just over 80k and over the past few months it has developed a problem, the problem is that wether revving it on the spot or when driving in any gear it gets to about 3500 revs and feels guttless as if it is misfiring or the timing is out, it used to pink when picking up from low revs which made me think that the timing is out(apparently this engine keeps the timing in check itself??) but this seems to have gone away and this other problem in its place any help/advice would be appreciated
