      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.

  2. Hi i have a 53 plate transit durashift only just bought it so know no history of the van at all but it's only done just over 60k the gearbox is a bit lumpy when changing up and down and when i go to slow down at roundabouts etc and then pull away before it's stopped it doesn't go into a lower gear it'll stay in 4th or 5th etc if i change it manually it's fine though has anyone had any of these problems? i've taken it to my local transit specialist who said change it to a manual ............ not a good response when i travelled 300 miles specifically to get an auto transit :~/ any ideas gratefully appreciated Steve
