      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. xr2i overheating

    hey ive got a xr2i and its been fine until recently. the cars temp gauge needle sits near the top of the gauge (its in the norm bit tho) and the fans kick in obviously, it'll cool down for a bit, then the needle will move up again and the fans kick in. The heaters all work and water is being pumped through the engine as you can feel through hoses etc. The hoses dont get too hot around the radiator, they get hot but not like overheating hot. Am i worrying over nothing, i mean it doesnt appear like anything wrong, but i dunno. Could it be the thermostat? or the sensor for the temp gauge?? any ideas people.... thanks
