      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. Hello From Scotland

    Hi from the other side of ‘the bridge’ 😉
  2. Rust

    I’m the same, I Paint it with touch up paint whenever I see it appear!
  3. Wait till the fuel light comes on then fill to the brim, never had a problem on any cars I’ve had.
  4. MK2 head lights flash

    Battery is on its way out, I have heard it’s a ‘visual’ signal
  5. Low mpg mk2...

    33mpg just now on a 7 mile drive to/from work on 50mph roads. It increases to around 38 mpg in the summer. ... 2008 1.6l (non vct) titanium focus
  6. Forum Content Unavailable

    Yeah, that’s how I’ve had to do it. Just weird it’s gone on so long. I’ve even tried downloading other browsers but it’s still the same so I’m wondering if it’s related to an IOS update .
  7. Anyone else getting ‘forum content unavailable’ when using safari browser on IOS? I haven’t seen any listings for several weeks now even after clearing cookies and closing/reopening the webpage.
  8. Guess the car

    One of our sons mates had a ‘lovely’ BMW which suddenly developed a nice crack in the chassis, when I say nice, you could slip your hand inside it!
  9. Yes, it matters which oil is used because the engines are ‘close tolerance’ engines so the correct viscosity of oil has to be used so that when the engine is cold the oil can easily get into the correct places.
  10. Some drivers are so unaware!

    Someone didn’t stop at a junction and pulled out on my son driving his 140psi black edition zetec s, when my son got out the car the guy asked HIM where he came from and just stood laughing! Had he had his 5 year old and pregnant partner in the car the guy would’ve been missing several teeth! Some people just don’t give a monkeys about other drivers and are in too much of a hurry to get to where they’re going.
  11. Original Ford alloys ....... https://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/c/steel_wheels_alloy_wheels_wheel_trims_and_tyres_416/
  12. Spark plug fell into well

    That’s one of my worry’, first thing I did after having new plugs fitted at a service was remove them and put copper grease on them (they had none on!) then put them back and very gently just nipped them up!
  13. Spark plug fell into well

    If your just trying to get it back into place, something inserted into the port to manoeuvre the plug upright in the hole is easier than you think or as @Stef123 says ‘long nose pliers’
  14. http://www.clusterrepairsuk.co.uk/ give them a look, Im sure the prices start around £100 and you get a guarantee. You can always message/call them to ask......also try a google search for ‘instrument cluster repairs’
  15. Engine Differences

    As the timing belt change on an ecoboost is 150,000 miles/10 years Ford claim the engine life is at least 150,000. In reality (as we’re now seeing), it’s a lot less in some cases!
