      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. hello there, i own the above motor which i use in dublin as a taxi,, i have been having terrible trouble with power loss lately, my engine management light came on, and when it was put on the diagnostic machine it pointed i the direction of the air flow system, now the symptoms when the car has been running for a while the problem starts to come into it, as i take off the car pulls away normally, but when i go to give it power the engine just slumps, however if i tip the accelerator she will build up speed gradually, if i am travelling along m'way at say, 6o m.p.h. it will run normally for a few miles then it will start to slow down of it's own accord even with the cruise control on, when the car is stopped in neutral if i go to gun the engine it will rev right up and then die off to the point where it is spluttering and then backfires, however again if i tip the accelerator it will rev right the way up tp the red line, the ford garage mechanics are a pack of W&^*(%S and don't trust them one bit as the last time the car was serviced they left the used spark plugs under the bonnet, thankd in advance for any replies,
