      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.

    97 Escort LX1.6
  1. Hi, just wondering if anybody has had the same problem or could give advice... I just bought a 97 1.6 LX Escort and it was fine for a couple of weeks.... Then I realized the steering wheel was off centre and that accelerating sends the car drifting left and taking my foot off the accelerator makes it turn right slightly making the car feel like you are controlling a boat! It seems to be worst in 3rd gear and as far as I know it's called torque steering... I took it into a garage today because I realized one of the front springs had gone so I got that fixed for £200! Then once that had been done the car still has the same problem. I don't have any idea what it could be... the car has recently had an MOT with new wishbones fitted. Any help would be great.. Thanks
