      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. Kent engine?

    Thanks Dellboy, It's this one matey, some people I've spoken to have referred to it as the 'Kent' engine but yes, it is the Endura-E. Is this the 60bhp engine which preceeded the 70bhp one? I'm new to all this Ford stuff http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=htt...ngine%26hl%3Den Thanks buddy, Ben.
  2. Kent engine?

    I'm very new to Fords and only bought my new KA on Friday just gone from the local Vauxhall dealership-she's a KA Collection model on a 2002 plate with 28k miles and in silver with the silver bodykit. From what I can gather she has the 60bhp Kent engine which was superseded by the 70bhp Duratec engine-is this correct? Anyway, I'm told that the Kent engines can be a bit troublesome, can anyone give me any pointers on things I should be looking out for, ie noises, smells etc that might suggest something is wrong in the future? Thanks in advance, Ben :)
  3. How do folks - newbie here!!!

    Thanks for the welcome folks, I think this site will definately be a nice place to visit B) Ben :)
  4. Hi folks, I picked up my first ever Ford on Friday (6th Feb 2008), a 2002 KA Collection and I'm thrilled to bits with it! She has the usual CD player, full electrics, colour coded bodykit and air con. Prior to this I was driving a 1999 T plate Astra and although a good car it was killing me on the fuel consumption (she was a 1.6 auto) and cost £205 per year to tax so the the KA should save me a fortune. She is great fun to drive, very nippy and looks great. I'm new to Fords so I'm hoping to pick up some tips along the way, first thing I need to get is an owners manual as it didn't have one. ATVB & take care, Ben :)
