      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. Butterfly Manifold Valves

    Thanks for that mintalkin, that's exactly the info I needed. Have just pulled out the vacuum pipe and complete silence!! The car has only done 68,000 and has a full service history. Thanks again for your help.
  2. Hi everyone. Have searched the forum for info on my daughters 2001 petrol Mondeo sounding like a diesel and have come to the conclusion that's it's the butterfly valves in the manifold. Have read they can be disconnected behind the throttle body, but does anyone have some more info for me please? Where is the throttle body...and what does it look like that I have to disconnect. Will get the car fixed ASAP, but just need this temporary fix so she can get to work. Thanks for reading and any info would be really appreciated.
