      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 All, I am a new member to the forum. Before I start posting a new topic about my problem with my Focus, I thought I ask you people if you know where I could find the solution to my issue (if any). In August this year, I bought a second hand Ford Focus Mk2 (facelift) 09 plate Titanium Auto 2.0 petrol, 48,000 on the clock, full Ford service history and 1 owner, it was an ex-Motability vehicle. (In the picture the aesthetic modification were done by me ;-)) Since I have had the car, I feel like the engine is very “sharp” and loud. (My previous car was another Ford, but a Mondeo 2.0 Auto petrol.) Here are the issues I have: a. The car revs to over 2000rpm too quick and changes gears just under 3000rpm, very loudly! b. Sometimes, (intermittently) the accelerator will not respond straight away, then I would have to press it deeper and suddenly the car shoots off. Here is what I have done so far: · I’ve had the car fully serviced as soon as I got it. It has a timing chain; the garage told me I do not need to replace it, as it is not a belt. · I also went to Kwick Fit to check the whole exhaust system, to make sure it’s not a faulty or leaking exhaust, but they said it all looked fine to them. · I connected an OBD device with my phone to check if there is any issues with the engine or any warning codes, it all came back clear. The last thing I am told by the garage is it could be that the car was “chipped”, but it wouldn’t make sense as the last owner was an elderly gentleman, in case his kids had done it!? I am contemplating an ECU reset, disconnecting the battery for over 30 mins Also, I can’t seem to find a garage near Essex who could code/remap the car, if you know of any, please let me know. I would really appreciate your help guys! Thank you in advance.
