      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.

    Hi,I am quite new to this but,I have a 60 plate 2.0ltr diesel s,max,I have had it nearly 2 years now,I have had the car back to fords 3 times now,what happens is intermittent,one day the car would be fine then the next,I would start the car and it would run fine for about 10 minutes then I would notice that the main engine fan was on,there was a different exhaust note,and the engine was revving weird,it also has a loss of power,and a flat spot,I have had enough cars to no it's not right,I have like I said taken the car back to fords on 3 occasions,they run a diagnostic,and some other tests,but say there's nothing wrong,each time I go to collect the car they say they have updated the software,on the ecu,but as for the engine they don't know,I have to take it into them when it happens,that's helpful,has anyone got any advice,please,
