      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. HI, As this is my first post, I would like to say Hi to everyone. I have just brought a diesel escort 18 TD (as a runabout), and would like to know how to check if my turbo is working as it should. I have had diesel turbo cars before and normally you would hear a whistle or something, my escort should I say does a whooosh! not sure if this is leaking, or if this is how it should be. Not having a 1800 before, not sure about the performance. I know something is laking as I understand that a standard diesel (no turbo) normally goes from 0-60 in about 3 months. My escort well feels to be that long. Any suggestions? Thanks Jimbo.
