      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. Exhaust smell in car

    Hi Guys, I'm new to this forum but hoping you can help. My wife's Fiesta 1.4tdci is drawing exhaust fumes in from the under bonnet area. There are no leaks in the actual exhaust system anywhere but I can see faint wisps of exhaust smoke coming from the top of the engine between the front of the air cleaner assembly and the 'rocker' cover. I've already removed the upper camshaft housing and resealed with silicone gasket but it hasn't changed anything. The only place I can now imagine it is coming from is one of the four 'o' rings sealing the inlet manifold inlets to the cylinder heads but can't actually see the source of the smoke. No soot externally around the EGR valve or EGR pipe. Any help appreciated. Thanks fellas.
