      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. Thanks for the reply's guys. when i changed the egr valve, i did mean to change the fuel filter, but for some reason never got round it, but yes i would agree it would be a cheap thing to try.
  2. I have myself a mk6 (56 plate) fiesta. 1.6tdci my issue is, it idles lumpy, and this morning it wouldn't even idle, it would just cut out, and struggle to start. also if u park it facing up hill a little, the fuel system will need bleeding, I've become a pro at doing this now. what I've done so far, the egr valve was faulty and has been replaced with a new one, i have also bought a blanking plate which still needs to be fitted. also so cleaner has been added to the last tank of fuel. i have read that an O ring set can be bought to replace all the fuel systems O rings, as this is what i thinks wrong with the hill parking, but the rough idle i lost on, could it be an air sensor or idle sensor? any help would be great. thanks in advance
