      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, My 02 Ford Ranger 2.5 TD has developed a metalic rattle on startup. It seems to come from the front of the engine and gets less as the engine warms up. Once it's warm I can't hear it. It started as I got to France and as I was on my way to Spain I hoped it wasn't too serious. That was 4000 miles ago and I've just got back. I wonder if it's the valve gear, does anyone have any ideas?
