      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. Thanks rig-pig, although the starter is at the front of the mondeo engine, while the exhausts is at the rear. The starter also seems to turn ok.
  2. Thanks mintalkin, I shall have to try and investigate further.
  3. Hi Guys, I would appreciate some help here. I have a 96 Mondeo 1.8 TD, and ever since coming back from our hols in Ireland the car has been experiencing starting problems when hot. We had travelled about 200 miles in the pouring rain and the car still seemed to be running fine, then when I stopped the car for the wife to grab a snack it started ok, but after sitting for about 5 or 10 minutes while waiting the car would not start, luckily I was sitting on a hill and managed to start the car but the car has had the same problem ever since when starting hot. When the engine is cold it starts almost right away, but when I go anywhere I have to wait about an hour and a half or more till the car cools down and it will start again. Thanks in advance.
