      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. Focus 1.4 mk2

    Changed leads and had my flashlight on but couldn't see any liquid down there. However when i replaced the plugs they were cracked and in an awful state so i replaced them with bosch super 4's. Cheers anyway.

    I am going to replace fuel filter today also. I will ask my brother about maf and o2 sensors as he is a mechanic. I will keep everyone updated, cheers.

    Hi, i replaced the ht leads and no difference. However i got some stp injector cleaner and held the revs to 2.5k and sprayed some through a spray bottle into intake butterfly valve and it had a drastic performance increase.The car pulls now when i put my foot to the floor but slightly holding back still at higher revs. I am going to try cataclean today because i got a very good deal on a bottle of it (snake oil) and i suspect a blocked cat. I will keep everyone updated anyway so thanks.

    I will borrow some from a different ford focus today and let you know. Any idea to where the egr valve is located?
  5. Focus 1.4 mk2

    Hi all, I have my 2005 1.4 ford focus mk2 and it needs attention asap. The car is very sluggish to accelerate especially on a hill. I know they came out of the factory with sluggish acceleration but my car seems like it wants to hold back when foot is pressed to the floor. I have replaced plugs and coil-pack and still no improvement, the ht leads look in good shape so i didn't bother with them. The car has also failed nct due to emission problems so i have come to the conclusion that the egr valve may need a serious clean considering the old spark plugs were in an awful state. The car was scanned with diagnostics and no codes were present. Anyway, I can't locate the egr valve though so if anyone could help it would be appreciated, Thanks in advance.
