      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.

  2. Broken spark plug

    Thanks again guys The RAC man changed the plugs and put stuff round the threads etc etc he was very careful putting plugs in and tightening them he was very good even checked for anything odd before he put plugs in and said there was nothing obvious and it all looked clean and tidy
  3. Broken spark plug

    Thanks guys i might just have a look at coil pack
  4. Broken spark plug

    Yes it was a clean break at the base of the ceramic bit so the plug was in 2 pieces on the first plug it was the top that had broken leaving the threaded bit and ceramic case
  5. Broken spark plug

    That's exactly what the RAC man said but he didn't think they were too tight ? I am hoping I've just been unlucky
  6. Broken spark plug

    Hello you lot in August I had a misfire no engine light the 2nd plug along from timing belt had broken i changed all 4 and all was fine until Thursday just gone cruising along the A2 doing 70 suddenly car started to slow and engine light came on I managed to get off motorway and called RAC he plugged his machine in and code came up saying plug number 2 had a misfire it was the same plug as before and had snapped in half ???? he replaced all four plugs and all is good again he also said he has no idea why a plug would break like that and maybe I had been unlucky Has anybody got a view on this and what might have caused it to break ? Thanks for reading
  7. Idle problem

    hello ippy they call it a silver service which includes a lot of checks oil and filter change and they only do plugs with the gold one so i was lucky the guy mentioned it misfiring cos i had no idea as it drove quite well i know they charge about £75 for labour and then the cost of plugs are £30 PHEW so im glad i did it myself

    Just to mention that it's been like it for a couple of months now and today after a long drive back from Hastings I noticed that if I timed it right and pulled away just as it juddered it struggle to accelerate for a second ?
  13. Idle problem
