      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. Engine Oil - Diesel Engine

    Hi Dave D, no I didnt buy from a Ford dealer, I will give that a go once I get my log book through, thanks
  2. Engine Oil - Diesel Engine

    O.k thanks, it's a hard one to call as to whether it has been recently serviced, but i'm glad that the replies have stated that it is normal for the oil to turn black. My main concern is the lack of service history, which they say they are looking into, but I wont give up until I have the proof that it has it's first annual service, as i'm sure this invalidates the ford warranty
  3. Engine Oil - Diesel Engine

    Thanks for the replies, that has settled my nerves slightly, all I need now is them to sort out my service history
  4. Hello, I've just bought a Fiesta 1.4 TDCI which was registered in 07/2010, it's got 10,700 miles on it and it's previous owner used the motobility scheme. I bought it from a reputable chain and 2 questions I asked before buying it were does it have a full service history and when was it last serviced. I was told that if it was a motobiluty car it would have been serviced because that it paid for by Ford, but that the schedule would have been sent back to ford when the car was sold. They also told me that it was serviced before being advertised. When i got the car home and looked at the service log, there wasnt a service stamp in it so basically i have no service history, I have contacted them and they are looking into it, but i'm worried about the state of the engine oil, as its black, is this normal on a diesel engine?, it obviously hadnt been recently serviced after all, so if the previous owner got it serviced it would have been approx. 7 months ago. This is obviously the first deisel i've owned Mark
