      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. Complete novice that wants to learn more so be warned! I have a 1.6 Ford Escort 99 plate finese. The temp gauge hasn't worked for ever and a day and i've not really thought much about it, the car has always run well without any issues. However recently i've found myself topping up the coolant... think i've gone through around 1/2-1 litre in 6 months or so... i figure I have a leak and want to know where to look first! There aren't any obvious patches on the driveway although i'm half convinced i've seen moisture coming from what I think is the gear box about a ft or two down the underside of the car nearer the passenger side? ....am I on the right track? Any pointers? Should I just scrap it now!
