      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 guys new to the forum, Looking for some advice really, my mum owns a 02 plate 2l Mondeo zetec and uses it for work etc, now it is run alot but very carefully driven, it hasn't given us any real problems to be honest over the few years we've had it, but the other night she went out to go for groceries and it just wouldn't start It would turn over and it started once but the noise was terrible, revs all over the place and a funny smell so we turned it off and never touched it until we could get the local garage that we always use and trust to come pick it up and take it down on their van. They just phoned and said it's dropped a valve and needs a new engine?! Is this a common thing to happen? like I said as far as I know it hasn't given us any problems, no warning lights or anything, this seems to have just happened?! Any advice would be much appreciated on what the best course of action is/ what it should cost to fix etc Cheers guys :(
