      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. Cvt History And Fluid Change

    Hi everyone. This is a very old thread but I'm hoping someone can help me still. First of all I know nothing about cars but bought a 2004 c max 1.6 diesel TDCi couple of months ago as I needed a car for work badly. Four days ago while driving home from work and a stop in a grocery, my car stalled. It starts fine but dies immediately when put into drive or reverse. I had to be towed home. The following day the car was running again. Garage found error code p1145 but he said he's 99 percent sure it needs gearbox replacement which costs more than the car itself. I was able to drive the car home. Yesterday when I tried to start it it wouldn't turn over but all the lights are working and an engine system fault showed up. I don't even know how I am going to rid of the car as no one will buy that at it's state for more than 500 Euro. I have read in this forum about flushing the oil and I want to ask some opinions if you think it's still worth to try that. Like what I've said I know nothing about cars so it has to be brought in a garage. I don't even know how to bring it to the garage as it won't start and I'm very hesitant now to spend another penny on it if I can't make it run again. Hope to hear some answers. Thanks in advance!
