      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. Engine Systems Fault Warning Light

    Cheers for the advice, I have found somebody that has the kit to get fault codes so will get that plugged in before taking it to the dealer.
  2. I have had a problem with my 55 reg plate 1.8 TdCI LX focus, recently I have noticed that I suffer dips in power while driving but had put it down to the possibility of me taking my foot off the accelerator slightly. Last night however I was driving home and as I was approaching a roundabout at 40mph in 5th gear I changed down to 3rd gear then to 2nd gear and the engine systems fault warning light came on. The car then started "juddering" and would not go above 20mph or 2000 revs. I pulled over after crawling round the roundabout and turned the engine off. I sat there for a couple of minutes and when I turned the engine back on the warning light did not reappear and the car was driving as normal. The description of the problem in the hand book is "A malfunction of the engine and powertrain related systems" Any advice on what this could be would be most appreciated as I would like some advice before taking it to a garage.
  3. Hello

    Good morning everybody, I would just like to introduce myself as a complete car novice, I know how to drive and where to check levels etc but other than that I am not overly technical. I drive a 55 plate Focus hatchback 1.8 TdCI LX.
