Advice please,, as always it's this v6 mk3 misfire/splutter doesn't always give an eml but when it does gives code for misfire cylinder 3, me and Alan Thor Coutts have changed plugs and today changed all 6 injectors, changed coil pack for a used one (which was worse, alot worse with same misfire) put old coil back with new HT leads idles great drives great until u want power then it hesitates kangaroos, have to take foot off the go pedal then force foot down to get anywhere (intermittent with no eml or codes) thinking try another coil pack... BUT am I missing something could it be something else maybe fuel pump, fuel filter??

Help. I m losing Boost

Help....I'm losing Boost?

Hey Guys,

Well, the boost pressure issue seems to be getting worse, before I had around 15psi Boost, I know not the normal 22psi or over-boost of 26psi.

Well on the way home I'd thought I'd give it a blast on the dually, a bit more black smoke than usual but my maximum boost was reading 8.6psi? :(

So something is getting worse, but what I'm not sure? :nope:

Brand new Turbo, Manifold and Electronic Actuator last year, I've upgraded some of the Silicon hoses and at the weekend I cleaned the EGR Valve which was a little bit dirty, nothing major though.

So what on earth is going on?

    Today I decided to put 2 badges on the boot of my estate 1 being v6 and the other being 24v which is exactly what my estate is! I was driving back from the school run when a vectra came up behind me tin opener close so gave a flash of my brake lights and backed off down to around 20mph, they then came round offside to overtake but they sat along side me laughing. I floored my estate and left them for dust (nearly hit a curb) on a bend too busy laughing in my rear view.. They then eventually came strolling past my street I stood at my car pointing and laughing... Bastards didn't look to see me ffs

      Escort gti update

      Finally the fuel tank is now reinstalled and all bolted up and filler neck, front to back brake pipes renewed, rear disk conversion mounted and every thing clears and not catching anything, just need to wire in abs sensor on passanger side, fit new hand brake cables and the last thing I'll fit is disk and pads and there in the boot and that's all the rear end done minus bleeding,

      I've recently purchased nother set off wheels for the car and can't decide if they suit it but I'll get one on when the car is fully ready to go back on the floor and new suspension going on

      Need to order a new exhaust and get that fitted but now I'm please how the rear has come along now to get the front end all mocked up new brakes and give the old girl a service as I've found shes 19years old

      Will keep you all Update to how I'm doing

        Please copy and share to as many Ford Groups as you can, together we can make a stand.

        *Announcement to All Ford Owners* - There are so many sticker businesses that are being told they cannot make the gel overlays as it is using the Ford Trade marks, but will not give anyone permission or a license to make the VERY popular gel that goes over the badges to customise your vehicle to the colours you want. Ford do not make or supply these either, so you are being made to either buy a whole new badge (not that many colours available) or stick to what you have been told to have on your car. I have recently been reported by a lovely individual for making these and so have now been banned from doing so, I continue to seek permission, although applying each week have had no luck.

        So I have come up with a New Design DORF - this is for those individuals that DO NOT want to conform or do not want to be told what they can or cannot have on their vehicles, it is as bad as the government.

        With DORF gels you can have ANY colour combination you want and anyone ordering these within the next 2weeks can get a set of 3 for just £10.00, but I will want LOTS of pictures to plaster all over the internet.

        Make a stand and let us together show FORD we will not be told what to do or what we can have on OUR VEHICLES.

        Private message me to order. OFFER ENDS: 9th March 2017

        Please contact Debbie Morgan

          Morning all fellow ford ppl, quick question I have a mk3 with this heater control. I have noticed something quite odd and hope someone else has experienced it, my blowers and controls work as they should however I only get hot air on highest temp and only get cooler air on the lowest temp setting, all temps in between low and high is the same temp depending on what temp was last.. As in if I had the temp on high it will stay blowing hot air until I select lowest and will stay blowing cold till I select hot lol

            Anyone after a very nice project mk2. NEEDS NO WELDING!!!! Only 111k 2.0 black top glx with both Aircon and electric sunroof (both working). Basically it's mechanically superb and I would easily jump in and drive anywhere in it. The reason I say project is I had a small argument with a post and lost so would need both drivers side doors and the rear quarter straightening and painting. Could make an excellent project for someone. Also have st24 (right exit) rsap back bumper and skirts in medium steel blue to match the car. Also have a rear section stainless exhaust to suit zetec to right hand exit.

            If I had the room and money I'd do this up, spray it satin black and do plenty to free the power out. It has disc rear brakes as well as traction control.

            Other than drivers side rear damage bumper is taped and wing mirrors and grill are stardust silver after swapping pink bits to the missus zetec s. Rear lights are standard not the tinted ones as are headlights.

            Had full service with quality parts.

            Only selling as can't afford to run both hers and my 2.0 mk2 s and decided to give dirty diesel another try.

            Open to offers and I know you won't be disappointed.

            I'll be sad to see her go but hopefully someone has the same vision as me and doesn't just see her as a donor or banger racer

                Bit of bad news guys

                Bit of bad news guys -

                I had a smash in a works van on Monday, hit at about 40mph by a drunk driver whilst I was stationary. Luckily I was in a van cause I don't think I'd have been so lucky if I was in a car.

                Anyway, I've got a suspected fracture so I'm in a cast and unable to drive. Any meets or events that are on in the next few weeks are a no go. I'll be on the page as admin where I can along with Rich Trevett, Steve Burrow and Dan Daniel Whitehead.

                I cannot go into detail or post pictures of the incident on social media until claims/court visits if need be have been settled.

                Hopefully I'll be better sooner rather than later but the suspected fracture in my hand is a hard one to heal so time will tell.

                    So, as some of you know I've been having slight issues with the xtrons ford specific head unit. The first one stopped working, got sent a replacement and that has issues aswel. After a week of research on various forums I've found that the canbus adaptor which works various features has stopped working. The only part of the unit that wasn't replaced first time round.

                    So, I get another canbus unit sent to me, asking them to make sure they send me the Ford specific canbus unit as each one has unique wiring etc. I get the new canbus unit today and it's for a fucking audi tt! Completely different plug size, different serial numbers etc. Absolutely fuming. So, now when I've been paid I'm going to buy the next version up from a different seller and send this one back as they clearly have no idea what the hell they are doing. I don't understand how hard it is to read clear instructions and look at what unit I actually bought in the first place!!

                        Well after Rich and Gordon having fun with the Android units I thought I'd give mine another go.

                        I've still got to cut the cradle behind as it sits quite a way back but for now it's looking a lot better and it's properly locked in place.

                        I'm still undecided on what to do but for now I'll go with it and like Gordon I've still got to hook up the DAB+, DVB-T, AMP, Sub Box and Reversing Camera, if not maybe I wouldn't have bought it, C'est le vie.

                        It's not the best unit out there but it just about works when it wants to.

                          Soooo, had an interesting conversation today with ringways ford at Doncaster regarding my neighbours mondeo mk4 estate that has had an electrical fault. Apparently it's down to his Bluetooth module and the sat-nav unit in his dash

                          When he bought the car he connected his iPhone to the car and everything was fine, then after a period of time the car kept dying on him all the time and turns out that when you update your phone, the car then doesn't recognise the phone has disconnected when you turn the car off!!!! Hence coming back to the car in a morning and being completely dead!!!

                          So (not that ford will tell you) but every time you update an iPhone which is paired to your mk4 Bluetooth module you'll need to take your car back to the dealer and pay around £130 for a software update!!!!

                          DISGUSTING IF YOU ASK ME!!!!

                            So, we started half way through the year as 4 mates who wanted to do our own thing. We had no idea our club would grow to what it is now and have the support at shows we've had. Our passion for the club has grown more and more because of you, the members passion for the same thing. I love being a part of our family as each and every one of you have made it worth building. A massive thank you from the admin team here at ford society, and a massive thank you for your support! We've had a pretty awesome 2016 and hopefully an even better 2017. A happy new year to you all, and see you at the shows next year!

                                Trying to decide between

                                Mk3 2.5 v6 6 speed (had one before and loved it - wish I kept it)

                                Mk4 2.0 140 tdci (sensible choice for running costs)

                                Mk4 2.5T 220ps

                                Won't be getting straight away as need to sort money for one as due to problems with missus car im giving her my mk2 2.0 glx which shes not allowed to pinkify till I get replacement.

                                Mk3 is where I'm veering as got full 220 interior and stainless cat back for one as well as know and trust them but thinking maybe clean break and have a newer mk4. Child in me wants the 2.5T but not sure about fueling and taxing it (495 a year will hurt along with low 20s mpg). Sensible choice is the tdci but don't trust diesel as every diesel I buy breaks (had a tddi, 130 tdci and a bmw 530d - 130 actually blew itself to bits) but we have a little fiesta 1.4 tdci as well and it's brilliant and I know the 140 diesels are basically Peugeot engines like the 1.4 in the fez.

                                My car would be the household workhorse, my work car, crap carrier. Fiesta is local run around, her work car and what we use when can't afford fuel for mine

                                      Well guys, I know some of us tend to take care of the exterior of our cars more than we do the interior, well I've just tried EZ interior trim detailer, I must say for its price which isn't bad, it is very good, it smells lovely, and leaves the interior spotless, definitely recommend, and this is available through Deluxe Auto Detailing.

                                      I know some of you will get fed up with seeing my posts on this, but I'm just trying to save you guys some money on your car care needs, if any of you are wondering, I'm not earning anything from this, I just believe in what these guys are selling, so remember check them out and use the code. :)

                                          Evening Fellow Fordies, thought I would add a wee post tonight and introduce myself (might be a lengthy one), So... This is my 3rd MK6 Escort, my first was a 1.6 5door with a WRC spoiler, my 2nd was my 1.8si 3 door (RS2k replica) which i currently still have but sadly she is destined for the scrappy in the sky due to metal worm which has become terminal... and now I have the RS2k which we spent all last winter working on to get her up to where we wanted, she had been in storage for at least 6 years prior to this & is petrol blue in colour which they only produced for one year as far as I am aware. We replaced the sills as required, plated the rear chassis legs, replaced the battery tray, fully stripped out & replaced the interior with parts from my RS replica due to the ones in the RS not being in as good condition but all parts are completely original, I had the fuse box fully reconditioned by a wizard down south after it packed in, replaced the exhaust manifold, & fully undersealed the car, then we replaced the alternator, then on a morning when I had to leave early for work (typical) the starter packed in, so that was replaced too lol.

                                          She is now my daily, the bodywork will be getting some TLC next year. I am also going to be putting my K666WRC private plate on her. My first two mk6's were both zetecs, obviously the RS2k is a completely different ballgame and she has given me a couple of reminders of this since going on the road.. one of them being the fact she likes to kick her arse end out in certain situations and the 2nd being how difficult parts are to get at times (nearly died when I was quoted over £450 for an exhaust manifold lol). But omg she is some machine... yes I know she could be beaten by a new corsa on a strip but I don't even care, I am still shocked she gets the thumbs up from people who own new focus RS' and even is an ice breaker when people are nice enough to compliment her. I am definitely feeling the love.. I am hoping to save up next year and maybe get a wee run about for winter because I don't want her ending up the same way as my last escort (even though she made it to 143k and still starts and runs first turn of the key). So here's a few pics.. I'll add a couple of my 5 door and 3 door in the comments too.

                                          sorry for essay.

                                                Ok so this is a bit random. Sat in McDonald's, and my Mrs turns to me and says someone's in my car. I look over and she's right, a woman is sat in the drivers seat looking bemused at why she can't start the car. I run over, see what's going on and she tells me her mondeo key just opened my car. As it happens, she drives a pepper red mk3 and it was a simple mistake. The worrying thing is though, how poor must the key design be if a key from another mondeo can open another car, albeit with the alarm going off!! Anyone heard of this??

                                                  Morning all, unfortunately due to grief at squires, Sarah and Kieran have been removed from the club, we understand that some of you are friends with them, as are we, but the issues they seem to have with other clubs are getting in the way, if they decide to start a new group I will share the name of it on here so you can find them.

                                                  Very sorry that it has come to this but unfortunately we are left with little choice. Ford society is a friendly club, and any shit aimed at other clubs will lead to members being removed.

                                                  Thanks

                                                    On behalf of myself, Gordon, Dan and Steve, thanks to everyone making the effort to come out today, 24 cars on stand we are all overwhelmed at that turnout,

                                                    Next year we are hoping to get to most of the major ford shows and maybe a mixed bag like ultimate streetcar or traxx, aswel as our Aviation themed meet (something new in the pipeline this year) watch this space.

                                                    A special thanks to Sarah Pantlin and Keiran Jackson for helping out with the admin work. More regional pages coming very soon...

                                                    Just a point going forward please remember to conduct yourselves accordingly when on stand with us or wearing branded clothing, it doesn't matter what others say or do, we are there to enjoy ourselves and that is what we do best.

                                                    We hope to see as many of you as possible at the Christmas do the first weekend of December, and those of you we don't see, all the best for the new year, see you at the season opener at squires in April!!!!

                                                      Hi guys and gals.

                                                      After a good number followers of my builds and requests to build replicas of my mondeo estate stealth box im prepared to build more for you lucky lot.

                                                      The benefit of the stealth builds is they take up little room as the custom shape takes up normally unused room within the boot area.

                                                      Now, the pics below show the estate stealth build, hatchback moulds are being made and salloon soon to follow

                                                      For £120 you will recieve the box with the cutout size of your choice - 8", 10" 12". Covered in black carpet and binding posts on the rear.

                                                      For £130 i will fit the subwoofer flush with the faceplate.

                                                      For £150 i will flush fit the subwoofer and also make a custom heavy duty grill that will also be flush to really add to the stealth look along with protecting the subwoofer from any shopping, tools, pets etc that may be in the boot.

                                                      I can wrap the box in other materials, leatherette, leather, alcantara plus more but again at additional cost.

                                                      Yet to be determined as i have to price up the material.

                                                      If anyone has any other makes or models that you require a build for please do not hesitate to ask.

                                                      I can and have built speaker adaptors, tweeter a trim panels,

                                                      amp racks,

                                                      wiring upgrades inc the "big 3 upgrade"

                                                      I have been building installs for a long time, mainly for friends & family and the requests for work for others is getting quite large. I enjoy doing it so why not.

                                                      Feel free to fire any questions over.

                                                      I will require a deposit of some kind if taking on custom work to cover the base cost on materials.

                                                      Heres a link to pics of some of my previous work, a lot of you guys will recognise my mondeo and its previous build -

                                                          Right guys n girls, how many of you lovely road tax payers have noticed the real reason why so many of our roads are knackered, well yesterday it dawned on me why this is happening! Taking a nice drive to my mother's for her birthday I came across some road works. Now, considering when these roads are laid down with perfectly good tarmac, some companies come along and "have" to do utility repairs (fair enough) but, why instead of repairing a hole properly, do the highways agency insist on laying on top of perfectly good tarmac.....loose chippings, now I'm no scientist but even I could see that all these chippings will do over time of relentless traffic pounding over and over, all this is going to do is break up even more of the tarmac that is underneath, do surely it must be more cost effective to fix the problem properly in the first instance than poor money after money into something that's just going to need constant repair, the other thought I have on this is, are there companies out there paying for this to happen, so that your pride and joy ends up getting damaged in some way so you have to pay to get this repair done time and time again?? Just a thought....rant over

It will be a daytime meet, we will park in the park and spend the day chilling and chatting whilst having our cars on display. Anyone who saw/attended the meet last year will know how well it goes and the number of people that have a look at the cars.

                                                                      You can bring children, wives and pets as there is plenty to do if they get grumpy because they are bored as there is a cafe, toilets, children's play area and ice cream van.

I'll leave the sample one on my car and if you are happy to order once you have seen it they will be ordered in especially but probably not stocked for now..

                                                                                  A page created for those who have a passion for Ford across the uk

                                                                                  Ford Society, a new club built by a group of friends who share a common interest, is a club that is open to all model's of ford. Regardless of age, spec, or model, every owner is welcome

                                                                                  We have just 2 rules, those are:

                                                                                  No abusive behaviour towards others in or outside the group or abusive comments about other clubs and/or pages

                                                                                  Static meets only. Our meets are in good locations where we have built a positive relationship with the land owner/occupier. Antisocial behaviour/driving will not be tolerated.

                                                                                  We do not mind the sharing of other ford clubs, all we request is that if you want to share another club or page you pm one of the page admins so we can ensure it is a genuine page, not spam

                                                                                  All member requests will be vetted to ensure the page stays enjoyable for everyone.

                                                                                  Other than that, enjoy your stay!

                                                                                    Flashing coil light issues -

                                                                                    Had the coil light flashing after a hard boost on a few occasions. Engine off & on cleared it. Didnt get an eml or fault code though and only happened occasionally.

                                                                                    Okay, through the process of trial & error and spending a lot of time researching.

                                                                                    Ive narrowed it down to to turbo actuator motor.

                                                                                    Opened the actuator up & it stunk of burnt out motor!

                                                                                    Stripped it down & took the motor out, tried it on a 12v supply, it got red hot & was surging.

                                                                                    Definetley FUBAR!

                                                                                    So now its time to souch a new motor assembly & maybe retrofit a fan to cool it down.

                                                                                    %d comments

                                                                                      Let's get one thing clear form the start shall we? This is NOT a slag any other car club off page. As much as shit has happened we still hold respect for the other clubs and those that are in it. Shit that's on other pages is spilling onto here. Give it a rest! This page was created so mates could get together and still attend meets/shows. But all folks seem to want to do is ruin it. I have no trouble removing ANYONE from this page. Anyone who is here to cause friction you better leave now as I always find out who it is, as I have with the screenshotter on the south yorkshire page. Enough is enough, forget the shit and enjoy your time on the club.

                                                                                      %d comments

                                                                                        Looks like I've been made the scapegoat for M-Os many problems, after 12 months of grafting my arse off apparantly it's all my fault... If that's the way people feel that's fine im a big boy I can live with that,

                                                                                        Yes i set up a new ford group, along with some of my friends which i wont name, as a place for my friends to get together without the judgemental comments and politics, I added my friends, that's where it ends.. it wasn't designed to compete with any other club especially not M-O.

                                                                                        I wish the admin team all the best and I hope M-O pulls through this difficult time, ill still be around, I'm a paid member and will continue to be as long as M-O is around, I'm in it for the long haul, always was, maybe now I can concentrate on enjoying my car instead of constantly dealing with my phone pinging..
