      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. Black Smoke On Start Up And While Revving

    I get a really thick puff of black smoke of start up then nothing while ticking over then if i pump throttle then i get the same puff of black smoke... i also get a tinny sound after 2k revs (like a rattle) car pulls really well no juddying etc i brought a new inlet/exhaust gaskets (cheapish) and to be honest prob does no harm in changing
