      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. 2003 1.4 Starting/charging Problems

    Hey could be a couple of things, sounds like something's draining your battery when youve left the car, seen as you've charged the battery and alternator( as long as the scrap yard one is working correctly) have you checked your alternator is charging correctly under load? If thats alright could be down to a dodgy earth, diode pack in the alternator or something simple like glovebox light staying on or boot light. Hope any of this helps

  3. Ford Coolant

    What we normally do in garage is add 1l of coolant then 1l of water doesn't really matter just let the car run after changing the coolant for abit and it'll mix in it's self
  4. Real Problem?

    could be down to the glow plugs, if their on their way out it won't bring any fault codes up as their still working, just taking too long to heat up so it's not igniting at the correct time, when the engine warms up the glow plugs arnt needed as much so performance should pick up, had the fault on a few cars not just fords
  5. Cost Of New Key?

    Hi I'm new to the forum just been reading threw, when programming new keys in when you get it in to learn mode it wipes all existing memory so all keys that's used need to be re-programmed again dunno if anyones already mentioned this.
