      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 tom its 20l tdci the turbo stop working intermittently  the tester said turbo mechanical fault so the garage fitted a new turbo but still the same

      Ok, it could be the turbo actuator at fault, damaged vacuum pipe maybe, or any of various sensors.  Really need to get the codes read if they haven't been already, you can do it yourself with Forscan on a laptop or smart phone.  Post the faults on the thread when you've got them.  :)
