      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. Hello, I am new to this forum but have been looking at your posts over the last few months. I have a 56 reg 1.6 petrol ghia. The car has developed a hesistaion while cold always at 2000 rpm is fine awat from 2000 rpm. The car is only a week out of warranty and the local garage have had the car for nearly two weeks now and they have done Car computer diagnostic - an error code that they have never seen and have no clue what it is! Temporarly swapped spark plugs, HT leads and coil pack from another car - no change Complete fuel tank and pump removal check - no problem 3 sets of compression test at different time (first they said it was OK, then not OK (140-155psi range) Cylinder leakage test! They have not found the fault but think it may be the conrods are bent (Want over £800 to take apart the engine and check - but no guarantee its the fault!). The car has never been driven in the flood and never hydrolocked. Also why would this problem be only when cold and at a certain engine speed - Surely it would be all the time? The garage cannot anwser any of my questions above which has left me really worried! Does anyone have any advice on what it could be as I am sure it is not bent conrods?! Many thanks, Gareth
