      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums.

The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Thx Jeebowhite. I think I'll give them a call tomorrow....... fingers X'd
  2. Hi. I have a Mondeo titanium tdci 140 & recently there is a whistling sound coming from what sounds like the engine. If you dip the clutch & rev it's pitch rises with the engine revs. I believe it's coming from my power steering so I took it to the garage where they replaced the PS pump, but when I picked it up it was exactly the same. So they ordered a replacement pump & that also made the same sound. They told it was my steering rack & as mine is a 57 plate that there was a recall on a certain year bracket (Mine falling inside of that). But I can't find anything relating to Ford recalling certain models that have this problem. I did first notice a loss of power steering a month or 2 ago but only for a split second, so i'm convinced it's from the steering rack. The steering hums slightly when turning & when I turn the engine off there is a whining / whirring sound for a few seconds from under the bonnet (I assume the steering). It's very noisy & embarrassing to drive, it's very bad when I stop & then reverse as well. I've only owned the car a few months & hardly drive it & so far I've spent more money on repairs than insurance & fuel.......... GRRrrrrrrr Any advice would be really appreciated. Mike
