      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 - new to this. Just wondered if anyone has thoughts on the following: i have a 2010 S-Max automatic and while driving to and back from Cornwall last week 'Engine Malfunction' message came up. The gear change sounded strange, as though it was having trouble finding the gear and some loss of acceleration (not good on the motorway & dual carriageway). During the week, the message appeared at random times, with the same engine trouble. Took it to my local Ford service garage yesterday and they found nothing logged on the car system and no error message. I wasn't surprised the message wasn't there as it only seems to appear after driving for some time. They kept the car overnight and tried again this morning - still nothing. They said I should continue driving and try to get it to them if and when error message appears again. They just couldn't understand why nothing came up in the diagnostics. Any thoughts, ideas or advice appreciated.
