      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. My car wouldn't start so thinking it was a battery problem I charged the battery indoors and placed it back in car next morning. The problem i think is with the starter which at 1st wouldn't turn but then with the ignition held on it wound itself up very very slowly ( sounding like something was resisting it) then smoke started coming from engine. I know that I may have held the ignition on for longer than it was healthy for the starter but the car was driven the night before and on this occasion the engine didn't even try to start. Looking under bonnet I could see a plume of smoke coming from what i think was the starter motor. What I would like to know is since I have in the last six months replaced the battery and alternator due to other problems does this new problem now mean that the engine pretty much had it or is it just a case of bad luck and a new starter motor is needed.
