      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. Car Wont Start! Garage Cant Work Out Why

    Sorry for the misunderstanding the car is not firing if that help. Had contact with the garage today and Ecu is fine so not that. My partners mate changed the starting motor after changing glow plugs thinking of solutions to it before taking it to garage to save money that was all. At the time we weren't aware it was such a serious problem. So if it's not the ecu god knows wot it can be. The garage says will have a look at it again wen they get Ecu back and fitted. I don't want to scrap the car as there is quite a lot o ppl on forums that have had this problem and managed to get it fixed and I find it hard to believe were the ones that cant. Apart from the not starting the car was absolutely fine no probs at all.

  3. Ok here goes! Car one day doesn't start. Ticking over but not starting. Glow plugs changed. No starting. Starting motor changed. No starting. Easy start sprayed still no start. Ford garage plugs in computer checks all parts including fuel injectors. Timings the lot n still doesn't start. Ecu now sent to london to see if it's that as garage couldn't test it. Been told this is common problem. Other ppl on forums managed to get problem fixed why can't they find whats wrong and fix it. Anyone else have any suggestions
