      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. I have a 2002 Ford Fiesta Zetec and it has failed its MOT on the Offside Rear Exhaust emissions carbon monoxide content after 2nd fast idle excessive. The garage I took it to said they could not diagnose the problem and advised I book it into a Ford garage for diagnosis. In the meantime I thought I would try my local Kwik fit to which they carried out the following tests and could not resolve the problem: 1. Changed air filter 2. Fuel Treatment added 3. Lamda ( sensor 2 ) ( Rear ) changed: Reversed readings from CO high to Lamda high / CO low 4.Repaired broken pipe ( vacuum) from fuel rail 5. Refit clips to air filter housing and induction piping 6. Run OBD diagnostic ( no errors stored) They have written on their report: Vacuum noise coming from right hand connection of fuel rail. Maybe allowing excess air into return system Any suggestions to what could be the direct problem before I put it into a Ford garage ?
