      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.

    2001 Ghia X 2.0 Petrol
  1. Hi, I recently bought my 2001 Ghia X and have noticed that twice in the last week the engine has developed a misfire. The first time it happened was when my wife drove it to work, she had just turned into her road when it started juddering. She pulled over, switched it off and restarted after a few seconds and it was fine. The 2nd time it happened was after I'd filled it up with petrol. As soon as I turned the car over and started to pull away, it misfired so I switched it off and on again and it was fine. On both occasions there were no warning lights and the speedo dropped to zero. Is this a common fault and is there a solution? Thanks in advance, Colin
