      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. 2.0 Ecoboost Smoking Problem

    I forgot to say that when the car is smoking it has a very oily smell.....could that still be EGR??
  2. Hope someone can shed some light on this as Ford could not!! Basically I have 10 plate 40k mile 2.0 200ps Titanium x sport Smax with 40k miles and full ford service history. Basically if I start it and leave it running it runs fine for around 5 minutes at which time it starts smoking. If I then drive it the smoking stops and if I stop it runs fine with no smoking for around 4 minutes when it starts smoking again. So basically it starts smoking when it is idling....if I start driving it clears in a few minutes and is fine until it idles again. I took the bottom pipe off the turbo and there was virtually no oil but the car is not overly quick so I am thinking the oil may be coming out the back of the turbo? Any ideas?? Surely the car is too young for engine problems?? Cheers
