      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 1.8 tdci 115
  1. I have a 2004 focus tdci, just had new dmf, starter motor and clutch fitted. i have had the car about a month. when starting the car it makes a metallic squeaking noise, and when i turn the engine off it shudders and feels like the whole engine vibrates (it has always done this- before and after the new dmf). Another problem that has just happened with the car is that a few times it has not started at all. i turn the key and there is nothing at all apart from a quiet short click from the battery. this happened a lot the other day but when i went back to it about half an hour later it would start. i would then drive it round the block, turn it off and it would not start again. But today it has not happened at all. other than this the car drives fine no problems. i have already spent a lot of money on the car changing the dmf and so am a bit fed up with it all as only had it a month!! any ideas?
