      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.

  2. hi all, i own a escort 1.8 zetec 16v 1996-7. when i take disconnect the ht leads from the plugs and look through the openings there are two plugs in between the 1st and 2nd spark plug and also between the 3rd and 4th, i presume they are threaded due to the (star) socket needed. around them is quite a build of rust deposit with what looks like small blow holes in the rust. I am losing water and can`t find the source could it be that it is ecaping through these or are they plugs for the oil. thanks in advance ,vinny
