      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. Hi new to forum & after advice , Have a 2004 1.8 Focus Zetec TDCI ,About a month ago had problems with starting so called AA who managed to start with quick-start but advised me to take to a Diesel Specialist , As I have parts & labour cover i thought no problem take to a main dealer as it is covered up to £500 !! They had the car for approx 3 weeks & replaced battery, high pressure pump & one injector & said that a further could need replacing but I had run out of money & patience by then ,Oh & grand total was £500 for the AA plus an extra £1265 for me . Needless to say since then I have not filled the tank fully due to lack of cash but have filled with £30 on several occasions , well until this evening when i stuck £50 in , after about 15 miles the car has now developed what i can only describe as a misfire , sounds rough runs rough engine management (glow plug) light flashing until restart ? Before i take it back to the Main dealer in the morning can anyone advise what they think the problem could be please Thanks in advance Jules
