      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. just thought i would update, i have now fitted a new coil pack, and have noticed a massive improvement,,,however, it still felt as though it was "choking", having driven a car with a manual choke, i would say it felt like the choke had been left on after it was warmed up. Possibly a choke prob,,,,any ideas??
  2. i thought that but after reading about the possible inlet manifold problem i did think again as the rattle they described sounds the same as mine
  3. hi, im in ipswich and i am on my 5th ford i think, i started in 1996 with a mk2 escort which i still miss to this day, i have had mainly mk3 and 4 escorts inc a convertible xr3i, i now have a little plodder in the shape of a mk1 mondeo.

  4. Good Morning, i wonder if anyone can help me, i have a mk 1 mondeo, 1996 N reg, 1.8 petrol saloon. In the mornings it starts fine but will not pull, it feels as though it is misfiring or a lack of fuel, i have put new plugs and leads on but have had no joy. I first thought it might be due to being cold but it also done it a little whilst doing 65 on the A14, i thought it might be fuel starvation but i read on another website that it wouldn't be that, i also have a little rattle coming from the engine bay, it sounds like a bearing on the cam belt pulley but i have also heard that that could possibly be an inlet manifold problem which would also cause the fuel like problems. My next idea was to fit a new fuel filter and coil pack but if anyone can help before i do this i will be most grateful. Thank you very much Gary
