      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. Running "lean"?

    Thanks for the info.I've not ,as yet,plugged in a code reader so don't have a number.The fault appears to be intermittent as it didn't happen for a few days, but did a couple of times tonight....Aaaaaarrrrggh!
  2. Running "lean"?

    My plugs are clean,but white,indicative of a "lean" mixture.The car slows and then picks up,on the throttle,when cold,although this seems to disappear when the engine warms up. I've changed the plugs and leads to no avail.The engine management light is not coming on,tho' I've been told that a MAF sensor fault will not cause it to do so...?Any ideas...???? Lambda sensor problem or vacuum leak,perhaps..???
