      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.

  2. MOT @ 80,000 MILES

    Just had my MOT done on a 1.8i ford focus 2002 reg with 80,000 miles. It passed :-) What I am struggling to understand is the following (I have looked for this info everywhere but can't find it) MOT print out is : FAST IDLE TEST PASS ITEM ........................... ACTUAL ....................................LIMIT RPM .....................................M.CHECK ...............................2500 - 3000 CO......................................0.00 % ....................................0.20 MAX HC........................................1 PPM ..................................... 200 MAX LAMBDA .................................1.00 .......................................0.97 - 1.03 NATURAL IDLE TEST ITEM .........................ACTUAL .......................[u]LIMIT RPM.................................M.CHECK...........................450 - 1500 CO..................................0.00 %......................................0.30% Does this mean the car is producing no CO2 or am I just reading it wrong ?
  3. Hi All I am new to this site and wondred if anyone may be able to point me in the right direction. I own a 1.8 Petrol Focus 2003 Reg. Unfortuantely recently I have been having the following two issue. 1 - The gearbox ocassionaly gets stuck in gear and in many ocassions I have got stuck at traffic lights due to not being able to release the gear from eg 3rd in to 1st. After 1 - 2 minutes of having the engine switched off the gearbox is perfectly fine and smooth and the problems may not comeback for another 1-2 days. 2 - The cooling fan comes on 10sec after starting the car from cold and keeps kicking in every 2 minutes at 3 to 4 minutes cycles. I am really not sure where to start looking for the problem :-( I have even made sure the aircon is off as originaly I thought the fan was linked to that but no luck..
