      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Mk4 Fiesta Hesitation under Acceleration

    Nope, no warning lights at all.
  2. Hi all, we have a Mk4 Fiesta 1.25 zetec engine (automatic). It started out as a small hesitation ages ago which we lived with. Recently though this has become really bad to the point where we have had to take the car off the road due to it being dangerous having quite a few near misses. It seems to happen when the throttle is fully open, and the engine seems to go into some sort of limp mode - the revs die, there is zero acceleration, and the engine is in tick over - it never stalls though. Take your foot off the throttle and back on it seems to clear and you are on your way. It doesn't happen every time, for example last week I drove it for a good 45 minutes around town and it did it once after about half an hour. My dad has tested the throttle position sensor which he says goes open circuit at full throtle, does anybody think this is the cause, or does anybody have any other ideas before I spend 30 or 40 quid on a new sensor.
