      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. smax official trouble topic

    Brand new to this so hello to all! I have a (almost) 3 yr old 1.9TDI titanium which I love - there have been a few problems over the years (and thanks guys - I was able to solve one of the issues from looking at this site - after the garage - official dealer - had had it 4 times and hadn't a clue!!) - but the current one is becoming increasingly annoying. Has anyone experienced a whining / whistling when accelerating? It is really loud and sounds like I'm being followed by a police car. I can hear the car coming from quite far off!! It's happening all the time - and a friend's mondeo has recently started the same thing. All the garage says is it might be something to do with the turbo - but they don't know - and suggested what they always suggest - a software upgrade (you'll have gathered I'm not overly impressed with my local dealership!) Anyway- any suggestions would be extremely welcome. It's getting worse by the day! Thanks
