      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. power loss 1.6 tdci

    Yes and no, it depends on their knowledge I suppose, and a lot of EGR valves can be changed without having to code/calibrate them - I would ring ford and ask them to clarify.
  2. power loss 1.6 tdci

    I don't think they can just change the EGR valve. It has to be coded and recalibrated for the end points (fully open/closed) can only be done by ford iirc.
  3. Opinions on this car please?

    Nothing wrong with the 1.6 tdci engine. It gets flack soley because it's the most common Focus engine, and thus most commonly not looked after. i.e not keeping up with servicing which carbs them up and can end up ultimately causing turbo problems. I've had mine since 2010, it's serviced regularly and just passed 100k miles. Never had a single problem with it.
