      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. Sluggish Fusion 1.4 Tdci

    Hi I have a problem with acceleration at slow speeds with my 2006 1.4 tdci fusion which has covered 45000 miles at slow speeds as when approaching road junctions or roundabouts in second gear the car is hesitant to pull away and and i need to slip the clutch to get a safe getaway. In traffic as well it can be a real nightmare other to this the car starts drives and pulls really well with good top speed and economy the cars had a full diagnostic test done and a software update plus injector seals replaced. Does anyone else have this problem or is it a characteristic of this engine design. I have driven plenty of diesels cars before but none with this type of problem can anyone help please.
