      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.

    Focus Cmax 2.0tdci
  1. Hi folks, My december 2005 2.0tdci C-Max will start however for approximatly 10 minutes the rev's will not go above 1000 rpm. Whilst waiting for this the engine feels as if it is jumping and fumes are coming out of the exhaust. When it eventually runs enough to move off for approximatly 800 meters a lovely cloud of fumes follow. After about 40 minutes you feel a short cough like feeling from the engine. and then it is alright until you start it again and the same thing happens. No warning lights come on and their is no loss of power or consumption except for the starting procedure. Has anyone else had this problem? Whilst the car is still in warranty I am compiling evidence and suggestions so as my local ford dealer will not fob me off. Any comments and suggestions will be greatfully recieved. Cheers Colin.
