      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. The same day as i was planning to drive my car to the workshop the sound disappeared. I do have an issue with the oil thou. It seems to be burning oil and i constantly have to pay attention to this. (ca. 1liter pr. 1000Km) Always park in the same spot and can't see any signs of a propper leak. The spark plugs are relatively new. Prob about 5000km. Something funky is going on thou. When the engine is running on a low "speed" and i push the throttle hard the engine stalls/jumps a couple of times. Last time I changed the spark plugs this problem went away. But it came back just after 2000KM on new spark plugs. Anyone? Thanks for any good advice!
  2. Need some expert help to locate an error, hope someone can give me some good hints. My ford has a new sound in the engine compartment. Its best described as a ticking/clicking sound which seem to be in more or less in sync with the "speed of the engine". It's quite loud and distinct. I dont think its from the engine it self but likely in connection with the drivebelt. Not sure though. It looks like I have a small wooble on the belt tensioner for the drive belt. is it likely that this is the cause, and in that case how easy/hard is it to fix DIY? Any other obvious things i want to check out? I might also add that it's drinking a descent amount of motoroil.(mileage:100 000) Im afraid it might be something critical. Hopefully it's something I can fix myself. Greatful for all tips and hints! i tried to attach a sound file. Hope it's working. ford.wav
