      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. My Car Is Dieing I Think Plz Advice Me !!

    I have now bought my car to ford garage, away from original garage but he wouldnt release my keys until I paid the bill, was told couldn't have old egr back he sent it back to ford as there is a surcharge if he doesn't. When I picked it up I did drive it to new garage at less than 20mph but got there eventually still with original fault, missing and juddering like its very low on fuel or something. Just waiting for ford to let me know the bad news tomorrow. If its to much going to sell to scrap yard as it won't be worth fixing at this rate, if I do get rid anyone know of any good scrappys that will give me a good price .

    He told me yesterday he connected to diagnostics and it came up with (1) turbo under boost, (2) mass airflow sensor lower than expected and (3) egr malfunction exhaust valve I have asked him about it today and he said before he went out nothing was on diagnostics then after he took it for 22 mile test drive and with it cutting out and not starting he put it back on diagnostics it came up with that. And questioned him about exhaust value and said now its on and he's had it from ford I have got to pay him for the work done but I'm a little angry and feel ripped off. As still without car
