      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.

  2. Engine Warning Light On

    my light comes on intermittently. I've read elsewhere that its a case of disconnecting the battery for a few minutes. Is this ok ? Has anybody else tried this ? The car runs fine btw . Just had it fully serviced - codes revealed a coolant and camshaft error - but no probs with car whatsoever ... they cleared the codes but they did say that if they come up again it would have to goto a robbing main dealer ... they want £120 just to plug it into a laptop !
  3. 1.6 Tdci Fuel Economy

    Morning, it was for the reason of being able to achieve 60mpgs that I bought my 1.6 tdci climate 06 back in Feb 2011 . It's now done 59k and after plenty of brim to brim calcs I cant more than 50mpgs ... and thats whether I driver like an old man or not. I'm happy with that after coming from a 1.8 petrol 2001 Zafira of 10 years doing only 35mpgs Plus very happy with only £95 road tax. Oh and I never believe the trip computer for the mpg ... but I do use it to try to adjust my fuel economy ... trying to edge up the average mpg on m'way runs.
