      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. Overheating problem

    Yes the temp guage is right up, it happens all the time regardless of standing idling, driving in normal traffic conditions or driving it hard. Under normal driving conditions it'll hit top of guage within about 10 mins. I've had the radiator system all flushed out so that should be ok. I've had all my sensors checked and they're all good only thing left to change is pressure cap as soon as i can get a geniune one.

  5. Escort GTI - Help needed

    Unfortunately no longer got the original one, although the one thats in now is a genuine part
  6. Escort GTI - Help needed

    Yes, kicks in just before it tips into the red and brings it back down to about 3/4 on temp gauge. Since having new thermostats (its had 3 lately) temp gauge sits middle to 3/4 up whereas original one never moved from the cold unless on the rare occasion sat in tonnes of traffic. Totally confused with whats up.
  7. Escort GTI - Help needed

    Changed thermostat, water pump and had head gasket done but still overheating. Water appears to be circulating properly, any ideas what else could be causing her to overheat?
  8. Overheating problem

    Anyone have any idea why it keeps overheating? Changed water pump, thermostat 3 times, just had head gasket done everything looks to be working right, water circulating ok but still overheating, at a loss as to whats wrong! Any ideas?
