      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. Escort Van Engine Problem (1.8 Endura) Blown?

    I just had a proper look at the engine & it turns out the cam belt has snapped... only 5k miles till it needed to be changed :(
  2. i have owned my escort van for a few months now and it has been fine. I started it this morning, it ran on idle for around 20 seconds then cut out. So i tried starting it again, i can hear the starter, engine turns over but with a loud tapping sound & does not fire. I checked the oil, just below minimum & all other fluids seem to be ok, no leaks ect. I am not sure if the engine is knackered? it is a flat 1.8 endura, with 85k. Hope somebody can help? thanks.
