      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.

    Focus Edge 1.8TDCI 115bhp
  1. After a recent weekend away travelling in convoy. I was told that my focus is smoking during accelleration.. My oil level was down and I was concerned. I had it checked out and the o ring wasl leaking. the fuel injectors were sooted up.. He sorted this out and put some additives to the fuel & oil to clean it out. I was told to drive the car hard for the remainder of fuel left in the tank and this should stop smoking. This has not changed anything. It was 4000 miles since my last full service and a new triming belt was added. I just seem to lack power in setting off and in 2nd gear and it smoking as I accelerate before the turbo kicks in. In 3rd, 4th and 5th the focus is flying. I realised that I may have to see a diesel specialist but i was wondering if anyone else is experiancing the same problem.
