      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. Thanks for your help! 2002 Ford Mondeo Zetec TDCi 2.0 manual car 93k miles: 1. Takes 2-3 attempts to start when cold -starts fine rest of the day 2. Big cloud of white smoke when it does start the first time of the day 3. Glow plug light constantly flashes once car starts and never stops flashing 4. Cuts out over 70mph...can get to 80mph if I gently accelerate 5. No check engine light 6. DTC's read "none" when I hold down the Trip Reset button The car has been this way as long as I've owned it (four months). Never noticed the engine cut out at high speed until someone came to buy it and drove the hell out of it. I haven't found any posts about the glow plug light flashing constantly and immediately from start up. It doesn't matter if I drive for five hours across the country...the glow plug light flashes forever...I've never seen it not flashing while the car is running. Thanks again guys! Can't wait to get to the bottom of this!
