      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. Fiesta Self-Service?

    Thanks ever so much guys :D You see with the spark plugs. I changed them myself just in the summer because at the service they never did. Turns out they were in the car since the beginning! I stumbled upon it because I had a missfire in the 4th cylinder. They were so old and brittle that the insulation broke and dropped over the cathode. :/ Thanks for all your help :) I think with you guys my fiesta will run for a long time :)

  3. Fiesta Self-Service?

    Hi, Since I'm not happy with how dealerships and shops deal with repair work here in Austria (bunch of frauds and scams going on) I'm considering servicing my Fiesta myself. It's a 2010 1.25L 60 HP straight 4 with around 42000ks on it (was an old ladies car wich I got around 3 years ago with 6000ks on it, she never really drove it), I'm sure you all know it :D. Now, I know how to do most of the mechanical work and am comfortable with reading my cars errors via the OBDII port, the only thing that bothers me is: I don't know what they do at each service rather than checking the oil, maybe the head gasket and scan it. Now here is my question: Does anyone know what has to be done at a yearly service of a fiesta? Thanks a lot. :D
