      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. Hi Everyone

    Hi guys (and girls!) I'm Arrow and I currently drive a 1996 Ford Ka 1.3 First Edition. I've had a Seat Ibiza 1.4 (also from 1996) before but that car broke down almost every 100 yards. So, I ditched it, saved some money and bought myself a 1996 Ka. Lovely car, very few problems so far. If there's anything else you'd like to know, don't hesitate to ask!
  2. Hi there! When I started my 1996 Ford Ka 1.3 Endura e last morning the engine made a strange ticking noise. The noise appeared when I started the engine, during low gears and when I depressed the clutch in high gears or when I took my foot off the throttle. Several people on the internet indicated it could be one of the tappets, but the sound doesn't get any faster/louder when I accellerate and it sounds nothing like the sound in this video I'm not too familiar with car mechanics so I'm hoping one of you is able to provide me with a possible explanation or fix for the problem, as I don't want to waste a couple hundred of euros on a garage if it's something I can fix myself with a spanner. Thanks in advance!
