      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.

    Thanks very much to you both.

    Hi guys, thanks for the feedback. Funnily enough I don't think the fuel filter has been changed yet. Might swap it out and run some fuel injector cleaner through to see if that helps the situation much. Why is it you can't get a Haynes manual for modern cars? I used to like getting one for each car I owned, like a walkthrough guide for a computer game, completely pointless until you need it but so happy when you do. Hopefully my pictures should be uploading too.

    Hi everyone, As this is the introductions area and I'm a full on newbie to the forums I thought I'd say hello and see who's about. I've owned focuses for most of my driving life having started with the Mk1 1.4 Zetec and a few years ago moving to a 2010 Mk2.5 Zetec S 1.8. Other than a couple of little issues I do love the car despite its poor fuel consumption and high amounts of tax. Once I have them available I'm looking to post some pictures of her just to see what people think and also take any suggestions for further mods that can be done, preferably without breaking the bank too much. Also I wondered if people could help with a little issue I seem to have every now and again. The car 90% of the time is absolutely fine. But every now and again either the engine struggles on start up or cuts out altogether. On starting it seems to just hover around a few hundred rpm and won't respond to me pressing the accelerator until I've pressed it 4 or 5 times and then suddenly springs into life. The second problem I've had is after driving say 200 metres, I've put the clutch down for a junction and the engine has completely cut out. Once restarted it's fine again but thought if anyone may know it'd be you guys. Thanks in advance Alex
