      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. Hi folks, my brothers owns a Fiesta mk5[?]. It's a 5 door, 1.3 petrol finesse. He came home from work today and asked me to take a look at it, as it was chugging and had a loss of power. First thing i noticed was it seemed to be idling a bit rough, slightly below 750rpm, while warm. I know they go down to around 750rpm when warm but it was fluctuating a bit up and down and chugging. Also, his engine management light was on. I was just wondering is there a procedure you can go through to check what fault code it's throwing up? Something similar to ones in the likes of toyota, where it'll flash the engine management light a certain number of times to tell you a specific thing that's wrong. Excuse my ignorance on the topic, I've never worked on a fiesta like this before. My guess was either a simple serive, plugs leads etc, or the lmbda/02 sensor might be at fault. Any helps appreciated. Cheers, Paul
