      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.

    Focus Ghia TDI 1.8
  1. Ford Focus TDI

    I have a Focus Ghia 1.8 TDI (2007). The cylinder cooling water temperature appears to reach about 88oC only after very long engine run and seem to drop back. If my understanding is right the cooling water temperature should be about 90oC and should reach this setting pretty fast in order to protect the engine from cold corrosion and for best fule economy. My attempts to get the correct temperature setting through the Ford service centres had been futile. Much appreciate feed back similar experience and suggestions.
