      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.

  7. Focus Diesel Non-Starter Help Please

    How do you go about doing that, thought that's what I was doing by bleeding the from the top on the filter
  8. Hi All so my problem is I have changed the fuel filter on my Focus Estate 2007 1.8 TDCI and attempted to bleed the system via the Fuel filter after filling the fuel filter up with diesel first and there is no fuel coming through. I have tried bleeding it with the ignition on. I have tried easy start and the engine turns over but still doesn't start once I stop the easy start. I have placed a pipe in between the fuel filter and the inlet fuel line and no sign of fuel. the tank is half full Any suggestions greatly welcome please Thanks Bob
