      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.

    Escort Mk6 Estate auto
  1. escort 1.6 zetec surging

    Hi, Can anyone help me in identifying what he means by "The problem with the revs was caused by a little air valve front r/h side of the engine was blocked. I cleaned it out with break cleaner, and it's now running perfectly." My Mk6 Escort auto (Zetec-e) suffers from throttle surging very occasionally when I take my foot of the accelerator. It continues to accelerate sometimes for a few seconds, over times a bit longer. It doesn't do it all the time and its seems to tick over happily. Its only covered 26,000 miles and wasn't used much be its last owner. I've been told to look at the vacuum pipes but as its not doing it all the time I'm guessing it something sticking. Any help appreciated. Thanks
