      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 Zetec 1.8
  1. I have a 1.8 Zetec Focus and when i drive long distances at high speeds (e.g 60-70 mph for about 5-10 minutes) the gears seems to seize up. Usually it is when im in 5th gear and cruising then when i try to come out of 5th the gears feel really stiff and can hardly move them! And when i try putting it in 1st it just flicks in to 3rd, and its nearly impossible to drive. People have suggested gearbox oil etc, but wondering if anyone has had this problem and know for deffinate what it could be? <_<
