just purchased a ford escort van 1.8 55 non turbo(1999 vreg 96k with full service history (ex BT van) from ebay, only to find its packing up on me!! fckin heap of shit!!!!
it takes a couple of starts to fire up in the morning and ticks over rough until warmed up ( to be expected i guess) probably due for some glow plugs
but the main problem is, whilst running, it seems to die out with no throttle response. I was driving down the dual carriage way at about 60 and lost power with no throttle response and eventually stalled whilst still moving. i turned the key again whilst still moving then it was running fine and picked up speed again, it keeps do it and its driving me insane, every time i drive the thing i have to keep turning the key to stop the problem
any ideas on what it could be?? ( fuel pump, filter, injectors???) the garage said they cant put it on a diagnostic test because they dont have the leads
