      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. Hey, thanks for the post. I'm not the most mechanically minded person in the world and it appears my first post was way off lol It's not the glow plugs, it's actually the fuel injector and it's not oil, it's diesel! Turns out, it's a very common problem with these cars. Number 3 injector seal starts blowing fuel and will eventually destroy the turbo as carbon gets into it. This was also the ticking noise I was hearing. Getting this done next week at ford and that should be the end of that. I think you're right about the battery, having that checked tomorrow and hopefully it's nothing more than that. Will update the post when I get news on it, thanks again for the post.
  2. Hey, new to the forums, apologies in advance if I'm posting this in the wrong place..... When I started the car this morning (focus 05 1.6tdci) I heard a clicking noise (like a plastic carton on a bicycle wheel) coming from the engine. When accelerating it got louder and completely stopped after about 15mins I looked in the engine bay and noticed a bit of oil on the glow plug third from the left Recently, upon starting, the headlights have flickered and the speakers have crackled a bit. Will this all be connected somehow? Any ideas? Annual service due next week
