      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. Hello! Is There Anybody In There?

    Thanks for the greetings, guys!
  2. Poor Mpg?

    Sorry, I mistook Duratec for the semi-auto option! Apologies. But I would like to know if the late shifting is normal, please.
  3. Poor Mpg?

    Can i ask at what revs the 'box changes into top? My 1.6 Auto is reluctant to change into 3rd or top until 2800 / 3000 rpm under medium throttle opening, approaching 50 mph in 3rd; even lifting off doesn't always cause it to change. I'm only showing 32 mpg on a 12 mile journey to work, all dual carriageway (but with 13 roundabouts!). Is this normal: at 30 mph it never sees top gear! I know that your's is the Durashift, but could this be your problem too? (My recent Fiat 500 semi-auto would shift at 2500 rpm).
  4. Having just bought my first Ford 43 years after passing my test, I know you guys will help with any problems that may arise. I dare say there'll be nothing that hasn't already been dealt with at some time or another. Thanks Nick
