My Ford Fusion 1.6 petrol has a problem.
I bought the car from the market and after i got it home the battery went flat. i jumped the car and it was ok. But this happened a few times with a lack of power every time you started to drive. When you try to accelerate you get flat spots where the car starts to dwindle.
I replaced the battery and the problem is still there. Except now the engine management light is coming on. It is flashing 3 or 4 times when the flat spot occurs.
I spoke to a bloke yest and he suggested i had a problem with the throttle casing (i am not sure what this is) as the same thing happened to his Ford Focus. He said once his was replaced the problem went away.
Has this ever been a problem for anyone or can anyone suggest what it may be.
My car is a 53 plate with 67000 on the clock.
Really need some help
