      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.

    The official ford service schedules are here Ford Etis. I think it's every 8years/100000 miles.
  2. replaced fuel filter CAN'T START

    Yup, they will only fit on one way anyway, due to the length of the pipes.
  3. replaced fuel filter CAN'T START

    I'm having the same problem. The computer is claiming there is an "engine systems fault". Again a 1.8 TDCI. I didnt fill the filter when originally replaced. Since seeing this post I've filled the fuel filter prior to cranking. Still no joy. I'm fairly certain that there is air in the system. I get the impression that the fuel pump isnt trying to draw fuel from the filter. After removing the fuel pipes from the filter housing, there is no diesel evident. Also, the "engine systems fault", appears at stage 2 ignition. Any suggestions? How would i go about drawing fuel via the fuel return line? Thanks.
