      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. I have tried this guide with the screwdriver, is it just a case of keep persevering? Because as yet it is not working for me, screwdriver directly above the wire pressure applied by my husband and me turning the key! Nothing not even a click. Please give me some advice if you can. Thank you, Carol

    Update on Engine Management light. Ford have had it on the Diagnostic tester and the fualt showing is an actual hose that leads into the DPF and no the actual DPF Phew!! So thats the story so far, the hose is is being replaced tomorrow and hopefully once a recheck is done then it doesn't flag up anything else fingers crossed guys and gals, will keep you posted. Carol

    Update on engine management light, after the diagnostic test the error is from the DIESEL PARTICULATE FILTER DPF. Garage does not want commit to the repair, so it's now sitting at a ford garage, he did give me a price for the part though, so I will know if after the ford diagnostic if they price me crazy money for the same part if it reads the same error that is at least I will know if they are ripping me off.

    I think I will just rely on my mechanic at the garage instead of throwing money away, thanks for the quick reply mike. Carol

Thanks Carol
  9. Temperature Gauge

    Every thing okay on that score, vehicle has been running about all day today, no overhating in the engine, just the needle going up to the red every now and again. Behaving and sitting normally sometimes, then just for no reason climbs into the red again.
  10. Hi can any one help, my Ford Mondeos Temperature Gauge is misbehaving sometimes by going of the scale even when started from cold, changed the thermostat thinking this was the problem, but still doing it. The automatic fan in the engine keeps triggering on, is the problem one of my sensors and if so which one? I have been reading there are two in other posts! My Mondoe is a W (2000) Reg 1.8 petrol.
