      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. Cold Running Fault

    Hi new member here after a little advice/guidance. My car is a 1999 S plate 1.8 petrol manual, owned for a week or so now, when cold the car cuts out regularly until engine is warm, I am assuming that the idle control valve is at fault here or possibly a faulty temperature sensor misreading the engine condition, does this sound right? I am replacing the idle control valve on Wednesday anyway. Also another the odd thing is that whilst the engine is cold and cutting out the speedo does not work at all, but when the engine gets to normal temperature the speedo works as it should. Is there anyway in which the two faults could be connected?
