      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. TDCI Turbo Issue

    it all depends on how badly your car loses power. My car suffered sever loss of power so it was something i could not ignore. At first the mechanice relised that was a build up of carbonised oil which he tried to clean but made no differnce that is why i had to get the egr valve replaced. faulty egr valves seem to be a common fault on diesel engines, im juts going by what i have already read on the internet and what the mechanic told me.
  2. TDCI Turbo Issue

    I recenlty bought a 2.0 tdci mark 2 ford focus. The mileage was 80, 000 miles on the clock. Basically i experinced similar problems to yourself wnere there was a turbo lag. I took it into mechanics and after much investigation i had to get the egr valve replaced. Since this has been replaced its been ok, touch wood, the part cost me £150
