      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. Me too........... glad i spotted this!!!!
  2. focus starting problem

    Are you turning the key immediately to the start position (3) or are you letting the key pause at position 2 (ignition) for 1-2 seconds before firing? If you give the fuel a chance to pressurise (especially when cold) you'll give the engine a better start and it shouldn't kick out. Failing that, the component at fault could be.... Fuel filter Fuel pump Spark plugs Idle Speed Control Valve There are other probable causes but I would start with the fuel filter, it's the quickest and cheapest one to eliminate. Then spark plugs, then ISCV.
  3. **Newbie**

    Hi everyone, Got a brand new Fiesta Zetec Blue (MK6 Special Edition I think). Brilliant little car, really impressed so far. I hope to be comparing ideas and help/advice if I need it, or indeed if I can be of any help to you, just ask. Merry Christmas and all the best for 2009, by the way! Some pics of my new toy.... PaddyC
