      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. Had the battery changed see original post lol. :-p
  2. Thanks for the responses, already changed the glow plugs. I will give the fuel filter a go i think, would this affect starting though? it did have a fuel filter last year.
  3. New to this forum so hello. :) Wondering if anyone would be able to share any insight on what the problem might be, it's driving me mad! I have a 2003 1.8 tdci focus 115. Had it 8 months now but as it started to get colder I noticed it becoming worse and worse starting on cold mornings, to the point where you would turn it over and it would almost start then stop, this needed to be done (at worse) 8 times before it would eventually fire with a bloom of smoke out of the back. It went into ford for a new battery/glow plugs and also a starter motor, for the problem to still remain, £300 later.. The car also suffers from a reluctance to rev at times, it will hit 3k and will hesitate to rev any further, it will almost clear itself and this will vanish however..then sometimes re appear. I don't really know where to go with it, some people have told me it could be a lazy fuel pump due to it being worse on the colder mornings. If it helps the car also had a DMF + clutch when I first brought it. Thanks in advance. :)
