Hello Escort fans,

I have just got myself a mk6 escort 1.8 si estate about a week ago on a R plate.
All seemed great until this morning... here goes the facts.

Temp seems ok
It's ticks over ok, seem really smothe.
but between 2000 and 3000 revs sometimes more the car feels like it being held back.
I've been doing lots of digging around on the internet today so going to check the following tonight,

Air temp sensor...

Is there anything else you can think if that would cause this?
The car has not long been serviced, which is why i cant get my head round it..

Hope someone can help or shed some light on this..


blocked fuel filter or collapsed cat.

Thanks for the advice, i check all that i could last night. Going to take it into my local Ford place today to see if they can plug it in and find whats up. I will let you know my findings.

Right, Problem solved!! :D

It's was a faulty Lambda sensor, which caused the Cat to burnout. Should start getting decent MPG out of her

Replaced both, now the car is back to it's former escort glory!
