      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. Haynes Work Shop Manual

    I sent a E-Mail to Haynes as below. Hi I have a focus C Max 53 with the 1800 Duratec HE engine with electric throttle could you tell me if the engine in the Manual for the ford focus petrol (05-09) is the same setup if not can you direct me in the right direction which might help. Reply; Thank you for your email Although the engine in the Focus hatchback is basically the same there are some unspecified differences when installed in the C-MAX. We are just about to start work on a manual for the C-MAX and we will have a better idea once the project has been started and a vehicle or two has been purchased. Until then we are unable to help with your query and I can only suggest you contact a friendly Ford dealer for advice. Any advice would welcome The Vicar.

    I have had the ECU checked out and it came up with the code P2008 do you think it has anything to do with IMRC valve as I have been driving the car with out the light on and it drives ok but if I put my foot down in a low gear I get a low roar from the exhaust and light comes on. Thanks for any reply.
