      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. Engine Really Holding Back

    Hi I have similar problems regarding loss of power, it seems to be really sluggish from 1st,2nd to 3rd but then when the revs build up all of a sudden some power kicks in, but still gutless when it does!! I took it too ford and he done the diagnostics and it read about 57 faults!!!! There was a few relating to the inlet and outlet on manifold which I see but he said he would have to take faults details(codes) and get back to me and for the meantime put some redex in fuel. It seemed to clear it slightly for about 2-3 days but now back to crap! I waited a week and herd nothing so went back to garage and he had a second look then cleared the fault and off I trotted thinking all was good when couple of hours later when I popped to the shop,,,the engine management light come back on! :( .....did the PCM update work or do u know what my prob can be as it sounded similar to yours....I'm clueless with cars and can't afford to keep going to ford,,,it's getting expensive lol
