      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. Fusion Fumes In Car & Tapping Noise.

    It's been like it since I've had it (About 2 1/2 years now) and I think it has got louder. The oil is changed around every 6 months or so, my husband checks all that over. Would un"gumming" them be a difficult/expensive job do you know?
  2. Hello everyone, I've got a 2003 Diesel Fusion and I'm noticing a smell coming into the car whilst idling. I've had a look at the engine today and I can seem a little smoke coming out from the top and back it seems. I've not had a proper look at the exhaust for corrosion or holes yet. It's also got a tapping noise from the engine, perhaps something to do with the valves - I've been told they could be "Coked up" about a year ago when my Husband asked the local garage - and has gradually become a bit louder over time. I'm trying to decide whether I want to get it fixed and keep the car as it's been so reliable or whether I want to sell and buy an automatic, which I prefer. If anyone could give me any suggestions and advice on the faults and rough estimates on how easy/difficult it may be to fix or get fixed, I'd be very grateful. Thanks Harri
