      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. Starts Second Time

    Would an injector cleaner be of any help if this is the case? Been using 'supermarket' fuel for the past couple years, short journeys etc.
  2. Starts Second Time

    Evening all, Have a 3 door mk2 2.0 TDCI 05 reg. Had the car two years, occasional issue with car starting after a short journey (engine would sound like it half started up, and then glow plug light flashes). Without fail, it would start on second attempt. Recently, the car has been failing to start from cold first time (becoming more of a constant issue). No matter how long you crank on the first attempt, it will not start. Without fail, second attempt will start. Are these two issues related? Car had a service last month (all filters replaced), garage stated no errors were found, so did not change the glow plugs. I now have a set of glow plugs, cam belt and kit, and also a water pump (that got weaker and eventually gave up over a two week period), these are due to be fitted tomorrow. If the glow plugs are not the cause of the main issue, what do I look at next? Cheers
