      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. Hi, new to the forum and am looking for anyone who has had this problem with a Galaxy. i have a 2014 2.0tdci 163 titanium. I have noticed a noise when accelerating, if I'm rolling along in 3rd/4th/5th or 6th and the RPM is around 1500 and accelerate hard (press foot to the floor or nearly to the floor) as the revs start to increase, I get a groan/hum/resonance noise from under the bonnet. This only happens when the engine is at it's warm running temperature and the aircon is ON. Turn off the aircon and it doesn't do it It has been to be ford dealer under warranty and they have replaced the EGR valve, a pulley on the aux drive belt and changed the aircon gas pressure per a mod which ford released. Still no joy. now I'm getting the usual from them that it's clearly a characteristic of the vehicle.... which I don't believe and they don't have another to let me have a go in.... any ideas or has anyone had this issue before and fixed it? Do they all do it? thanks for any help. Ben
