      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. I have another starting problem with my 06 S max 1.8tdci Zetec which has been ongoing for 6 months and has recently got much worse making the car unusable. The engine turns over but will not fire into life. Initially it would start after several attempts or leaving the car and trying again later. But now it happens 2 or 3 times a week and the car refuses to start at all. It has spent 2 of the last 6 weeks in the garage. They have tried replacing glow plugs, and fuel filter. No error codes show but they have checked wiring and some electrics. Fuel pressure has been checked and is ok. It can now only be started by bump starting the car. It will then go for a day but by next day the problem is back again. Ford tecnical deapertment are not intersted in helping and the car is now just a piece of metal. I can't use it and can't sell it. NO one can find out the cause of the problem. Any ideas or help?
