      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. Turbo Not Pulling Focus Tddi

  2. Turbo Not Pulling Focus Tddi

    i had a similar problem with my 1.6 tdci..checked the engine bay and found that the air inlet pipe had a crack in it..changed this but still the same...so i went around all the jubilee clips and found that all of them were loose..so tightened all these..then as a secondary measure i put self augmenting tape around all the joins...blimey..what a difference..she goes like poo off a shovel now...using less fuel and pulls like a good un...worked for me..maybe worth looking at all the joints and clips etc...

  5. Intermittent Rumbling Noise

    after listening to this noise carefully now, its sounds like a dump valve. esp in 1st the revs hit around 2000 and there's a loud 'psssssst' noise. i changed the air intake pipe as the little pipe leading of that was cracked, but now i don't where else to look. it doesn't affect the performance of the car as its still quite nippy..i have a 07 1.6 tdci...any suggestions would be great ..and yes you may have to draw pictures..thanks

  8. Intermittent Rumbling Noise

    Can anyone help, about two weeks ago my car started to make a 'rumbling' noise whenever i went over 2000 revs, it would then stop for a while then it would come back..not sure what it is. could it be the turbo or a split in a pipe somewhere any help would be great..
