      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 All, I followed my other half down the road a couple of weeks ago and noticed that his Focus 1.8 TDCI (02) was chuffing out lots of lovely black smoke, it has since started losing power and being difficult to start, so today we decided to treat it to a new Air and fuel filter as a starting point to curing it. Both have been fitted and fuel filter primed but we are not starting, I know that from reading other topics that the car can be a pig to start after a fuel filter change. Any suggestion and if we can get it started and it still has the same symptoms any suggestions to a cure. Thanks Samantha
