      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. Ford Ka2 1998

    hi there i have a ford ka2 1998, for the last few days it has been tapping like mad and has a slight missfire, so it only seems to be running on 3 cylinders. no pwer there and also need to ride the clutch or wont hardly move. so i took it to a garage and he tightned the tappets. then it was perfect. next day a loud clicking noise was coming from the engine so i took it back and he said you need a new engine so i took it for 2nd opinion. and they said it was the rocker shaft, means nothing to me so im just looking for some advice really if this sounds about right ? i think he said on the adjustables one of them is on its limit so the push rod is not reaching its destination or vise versa please help lol thanks dale
