      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. Hi there, Can anyone help with a problem? I bought my Daughter an 03 streetka 7 days ago, drove it 62 miles with no problems, stopped for an hour, drove 3 miles and it didn't feel right! The engine management was flashing and the car was losing power on small hills, and it sounded more like a V.W camper! Called out the A.A, no help at all, they suggested change the fan belt. Took it to a mechanic who put it on a diagnostic machine and it came up with a misfire on 3.......changed the injector, put on new belt, plugs, leads, coil, etc It was running great for an hour then low and behold exactly the same problem has happened.... engine management light has started flashing again and it sounds lumpy as before, any ideas what we can do next....... cos I'm wishing now that i hadn't bought it :-( especially as it was meant for my daughter's 18th Thanks
