      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. Replace Inlet Manifold - Ford C-Max 2004

    Thanks Jeebowhite, It was saying P2004 error code coming from one of the inlet. The light permanently stays on. General condition of the car is good. I do not have the service history, probably that was the mistake when I bought this 2nd hand car from a garage. I hope that this helps. Farrukh
  2. Hi, Recently, I bought ford focus c-max 2004 (petrol) with 160K Kms. The car initially looked good when I bought it but after a week I got an error code of check engine - emission light was yellow in the dashboard. Now after couple of visits to the ford dealer, they found that there is a problem with the inlet manifold that should be replaced. They think that there is one valve that could cause the problem but suggest to replace the entire thing as they cannot fix one valve. They also informed me that there are not separate parts for this inlet manifold assembly. I am not from a machincal background to know these things well. I have a few questions. How far can I go with this thing being on i.e. the engine light remains ON and I keep on driving the car? Would it cause a serious issue in future? Secondly, the suggestion that Ford dealer is giving could cost about 600-700euros. That is quite expensive for 2nd hand car. Thirdly, could there be another alternative solution that someone has already experienced? Thanks, Farrukh
