Hey :)

I've got a fod ka, 1999 and lately when changing gear, especially putting it in first it jumps, as if it's going to stall.

It also looses power randomly when i put it in 2nd or 3rd gear, sometimes cuts out and sometimes sorts itself out.

Don't suppose anyone knows what could be up with it? I've taken it to the garage and they said they can't find a problem with it. Had new leads and a new coil pack.

There's also a knocking on the driver's side, specially going over any sort of bumps in the the road.

Anyone else have the same problems?

Thanks :)
the knocking sounds like the wishbone has worn out or the droplink is gone aswell.

if you change either then do both sides.
parts here m8


on the cutting out problem i am not too sure but will
try to find info for you
Ah fab thankyou.
Howcome you have to change both sides?

If you find out that would be great, if not it's fine. I'll just get the other stuff sorted n hope it's fine haha

thankyou :)

You dont have to change both sides its just recommended you do as with all suspension parts. New "tight" parts and old "looser through use" parts can provide you with an unbalanced car.
