      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. 2.0 Tdci Losing Power. Loss Of Power

    ok. so now I have had the code read... P1288 CYLINDER HEAD TEMP. SENSOR OUT OF SELFTEST RANGE Any ideas anybody? Thanks, Lee
  2. I have a 04 (2005 reg) 2.0 TDCI 130. Whilst driving happily along the temerature gage will drop and become idle, at this point I lose all turbo/accerleration in the car and I have to turn the ignition off and back on again to gain back power, doing this seems to 'reset' the car until it happens again. I don't get any black smoke from the exhaust but the engine light is constantly on. I'm thinking about taking it to Ford to get hooked up to their computers but that's going to cost an arm & a leg!! I'm not very technical when it comes to cars either, but any advice/guidance would be appreciated. Thanks, Lee
