      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. Mk2.5 1.8 Duratec issues

    I have a 61 plate Focus with the 1.8 Duratec, bought it about 2 months ago. Had an issue idling initially and threw up a P2135 fault code, throttle pedal was replaced under warranty and fixed that issue. However, I notice every now and then when it starts up it sound quite rough, you rev it a little and as the revs drop there seems to be a noise coming from the dash area/rear of the engine, any idea what thats likely to be? Additionally over several longer trips-150 to 200 odd miles it has an issue where it starts to feel like the car is braking gently now and then almost like its hitting a wall of wind and after say 10-20 minutes of feeling that the check engine light comes on. Restarting the car clears it and it only seems to happen over longer distances. Has anyone had similar issues like this in their cars? How were they fixed? Much appreciated
