      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 Im new to this site and im hoping someone can help with my problem as garages and mobile machanic's keep failing!! I have a 1.6 tdci focus estate 55 reg which I bought around 9 months ago. When I bought the car it ran perfect for 2 days and then suddenly it cut out on me at traffic lights. A light came on the dash that I think is engine management light ( looks a bit like the sun lol) I restarted engine and the car ran fine until I went to accelerate from a junction, the car lost power and went into limp mode. It has done this ever since. The way I get past it is to quickly turn engine off and on and it resets itself. I have had car serviced and had egr valve cleaned but didn't help. one thing I did notice is when we had a few months of hot weather it ran fine, But now its cold again its worse than ever until I have ran it for 20 mins or so. Hope someone can spread some light on the problem Thanks
