      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. Hello Fiesta Goodbye 500

    hi from hull
  3. Focus 1800 Diesel Engine Problem

    i have had to change three cats on focus 1.8 tdci due to it breaking up inside,over time it vibrates and eventualy you are left with what looks like a tennis ball size chunk ! this then blocks the exhaust causing the lack of power. it can somtimes vibrate free again if the car goes over a bump. the early signs are a vibration rattle sound coming from under the car on tickover. its worth checking out by removing the cat,it may not be the fault you have ,but the first one we came across at the dealers took some time to work out.
  4. Engine Rattling When Idle

    clutch release bearing maybe ? if its worn and vibrating on the clutch pressure plate it could cause the noise, when you press the clutch down the load on the bearing may then cause the noise to go.
