      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. Hesitation Issues

    Have finally had the problem solved after taking the car back to the dealer again and insisting a mechanic came out with me to whiteness the problem, car was in for a couple of days and turns out it was a faulty egr (exhaust gas recirculation) valve. The car is now running sweet as a nut again, though glad I have an extended warranty as the part alone is getting on for £500. Sent from my HTC One mini using Ford OC mobile app
  2. Hi all, I am just new to this forum. I have a 60 plate 1.8 TDI Mondeo which is suffering from hesitation / jerking issues when cruising at 60 and above.I have had the car back to local ford dealer where I purchased it and they cannot find anything wrong when they plug into their machine so say they can do no more. They put a newer calibration on it which has not solved the issue. They did say it might just be the engine regenerating (burning off soot etc!) and it is meant to do it. I had the fuel filter changed back in December (2013) due to lack of acceleration, this solved that issue. I have just changed diesel type (to shell v-power) to see if that solves the problem. If anyone has come across this before or has any suggestions / advice it would be gratefully received. Thanks Lee.
