      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. Limp Home Mode After Filling Up With Fuel?

    hi, thanks for the replies and sorry for taking so long to come back (i had to go to work) anyway i fill up to full when i get empty which is about once a month and depending on what offers are around. i don.t think its sludge ive replaced the fuel filter and its too 'only the day i fill up' to be sludge. mass airflow stuff i'm interested in i think it is electrical cos it seems to re-set itself just got to work out which bit? nick
  3. hello all, first of all does the 97 1.9 td have a limp home mode fitted? because after filling up with fuel about 5 to 10 minutes down the road thats what the car seems to do..have a lack of power.. if you stop the car and leave it it works ok again but it seems the longer you leave it the better it is and certainly the next day it works fine. until you fill it up again days and weeks later. ive changed the fuel filter and put some injector cleaner in which are good but not solving what it is. it does seem to go like a switch being flicked you can still drive it but with very limited power.. any ideas and all suggestions greatfully recieved nick
