I'm in need of some advice. I bought a Escort 55 van non turbo 1.8D, its a 1999 (T reg) with a little over 100K miles on the clock. the thing is it starts up fine...its not smoking from the back and rev's up well when idling... the thing is when driving to get any movement I'm staying in 1st gear till 20mph and 30mph in 2nd all the time foot on the floor! at the moment I'm unable to get over 50MPH and thats raggin the B*****S off it in 3rd-4th.(please note to get to that speed it takes half a mile)
PLEASE HELP WITH ADVICE!!!
i dont fancy having to join the M1 or M62 at 35mph!
