      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.

    2006 c max 2.0 tdci
  1. Clutch Fault Maybe I

    Hi everyone hope this post is in the right place, apologies if not i am new to this site. I have a 2008 s-max 2.0 Tdci, manual 6g 35000 miles. dont get to drive it to often as my wife has it for work, but noticed today going down slip road to motorway when i put my foot down on accelerator a little to much it seemed to over rev and steadily pick up speed as though the clutch was slipping but this only seem to happen if you push the accelerator right down to the floor, i know it will only pick up gradually anyway but the over reving didnt seem right, but i wondered if the car could also be designed to do this. The car seems fine on general driving and have had it on drive in 3rd and 4th gear with handbrake on and lifted clutch up and stalls just like i would expect. as though the clutch is ok. Has anyone experienced this. Thanks in advance
  2. flat spots

    Hi guys, new to this forum so please dont shout if you have already discussed this, thanks. I have a 2006 2.0 tdci zetec c max and i love it its great, but i have noticed at 40 mph in 4th gear there is a jumpyness for want of a better word, it is like there is not enough fuel getting through really jerky like little flat spots it will drive through this it is inly at 40 mph in 4th gear until i realized it does the same at 30 mph in 3rd gear it really strange. Has anyone come accross this before. Thanks in advance.
