      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.

    2001 tddi focus
  1. Tddi 2001 Focus Rough Idle

    i have a 2001 tddi 90 ps with an anoying fault. starts first time every time(even with 260,000 on the clock) uses no oil/water does not smoke (no more than it should) the mot she was close to the smoke limit(egr sticking which has now been disconected) does not rattle/knock pulls very well all through the rev range cam belt changed abot 10,000 miles ago fuel filter done about 3,000 ago just when its warm and ticking over ,the revs are not stable,they can rise and fall maybe a couple of 100 rpm either way(not alot but you can notice it)also when the revs change you do get a bit of diesel knock,does not do it cold and does not do it all the time. there are no fault codes logged there are no fuel leaks etc........... could it be one of the temp senders for the ecu? apart from this small problem i cant fault the car thanks
