      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. Y-reg 2.0 TDCi Just had a look at my mates Mondeo as he's losing power steering fluid. It 'appears' that it's leaking from the pump, from the join between the two halves of the casing, on the underside of the pump. Is there a common fault with either the gasket failing, or the casing cracking there? Hope someone can narrow down the cause before i get up to my elbows in PAS fluid! (nice!?) Many thanks. Marv.
  2. Knocking noise (leaf springs)

    Hiya, is your van lowered? Changes what it could be.
  3. Siezed spark plug

    Hi, it's fairly commonish on some Ford engines. I've had to snap all the plugs off, turn the engine over to blow the centres out, stuff the holes with bits of rag, drill down almost to the seat, tap a big screwdriver in and wind the remnants out!! Took several hours, and was NOT a fun job! I certainly don't want to have to do it again! If Ford can do it for sensible money, save yourself a lot of grief and get them to do it. Be cool. Marv.

  5. ST170 paint codes.

    Hiya all, Can anyone tell me a paint code for Perfomance Blue Metallic? I've seen it on 2004 Focus ST170s. Looks very similar to Imperial Blue. Would also like to know the paint code for the standard alloys on the same model. Hope someone can help. Many thanks. Be cool. Marv.
