      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. Ford Focus EcoBoost 1.0 63 plate new engine

    Thank you, The Plate is WP63 XOL
  2. Hi all, I am new to this forum and am looking for any help/advice possible, we have a Ford Focus Ecoboost 1.0 63 Plate, when my hubby was driving to work last week it starting making a rattling noise with the oil light flashing up and starting chugging/losing power, we called the RAC who towed it to our local garage now upon inspection the mechanic has said that the oil isn't circulating around the engine, it has always had oil in and we have never had a warning light for oil until now, - he just said that it could be a case of changing a part but he wouldn't be sure what part and it could turn into an expensive job trying this and that and then could still need a new engine, he has advised to get a new engine or try to get a second hand one, I will admit now that I know absolutely zero about cars so don't know where to start looking, also I have heard about these engines having problems and also about a recall that was issued that we have never received but not sure if this would apply to our car,
