      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. 1999 (T Reg) 1.4 Focus Smoking

    It's got 70k on speedo, so don't think bores would wear out just yet. Oil level was checked as soon as car came in. Compression good. Also found out that the PCV valve is letting air go past both ways, so gonna try changing that.

    Bluish/grey. You think all 4 bores/rings would go at the same time? Costumer said i appeared out of nowhere and it wasn't smoking before.
  3. Hello, We got a Ford Focus 1999 1.4l in our place. It smokes on idle or on revs. We have changed the valve seals and it haven't fixed the problem. What else we noticed is that there is oil in all 4 cylinders which is weird. I don't think it could be gasket or piston rings because if it was that problem then I think only 1 or 2 cylinders would be oily, but what we noticed is that the PCV valve is burn up and just looks really nackered, so we will try to change that and also clean out the breather system to see if it helps it or not. In the meanwhile I'd like to know what you guys think and what suggestions would you give us to try. Any sort of information would help. Thanks
