      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. yeah battery is fine, spark plugs not sure where they are or what they do, as I said I am not mechanically minded.
  3. Hey everyone, not really used these forums much and I am not mechanically minded.. I was wondering if you guys could shed some light on what my local mechanic can't find. Last year I got a Ford Recall - regarding something to do with the engine temperature sensor to be bypassed in countries with high salt content. I took this to a ford dealer near my work (not local) and they apparently done what had to be done in the recall. Less than 1 month after that my car just would not start one day, I tried it and tried it - it turned over ok but would not kick the engine into life. I was told that this was an ECU problem so I was recommended to get a refurbished unit. It got fitted and was fine for a month or two. Same thing, this time it was at my local garage and they had to get an auto electrician in, it started fine for him - no charge they don't know why it done it. This time the car is doing the exact same thing and with the mechanic for over 2 weeks. The mechanic is stumped - said it probably is a fuel pump issue and it wall cost £1000. do you guys know of any problems similar and what was your resolution???
