      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. S Max Smoking Inside

    Hi My partner was driving our S Max (2.2 Titanium 09 plate) to Sainsburys today but on the way smoke was visible inside the vehicle along with a burning smell. The car was stopped and the AA called, he could smell burning when the Climate was switched on and seems to think the burning smell is coming from the engine compartment. We have had issues with the spanner light coming on and the service oil message coming up a couple of times. The first time the oil was changed. I am told this is due to the DPF putting too much fuel in the oil due to it tring to regerate itself. Has anyone had any experience of this issue or smoke or burning smells in the engine compartment? Many thanks in anticipation for your replies. Regards. Matt
