[quote name='InstructorPiggy' post='51790' date='Dec 1 2009, 12:34 PM']Doesnt sound too bad, heater plugs are very good nowadays, and being direct injection they are hardly needed.
My Fiesta (done 17k) does run little rough for first minute, but quite normal to be honest in cold temp, just needs those few degrees to warm up and get them piston rings/block up a few dgrees.
Best thing to do is not rev/drive for first minute or so in the cold, otherwise you can create heavy wear on the components.
If it gets realy bad I would look at getting the injectors checked for leak off and any pipes for leaks, maybe drawing some air in, but from what you have described, dont panic!
Changed fuel filter and noticed pump and water pump bit oily ( me forgetting to wipe after intercooler pipe split) so cleaned off.
Have now checked a few day later and they have a coating but cannot see where from, push fittings? Can I look at replacing anything or am I looking at a garage bil for crimbo.
Thanks for replies
