  1. Misfiring Problem Mk4 1.3 Fiesta

    Just found this but then saw your Fiesta is 2000 year, I'd put my money on this being the problem though. Google and research your symptoms before shelling out though I would! "Ford Fiesta 2002 – 2008 misfiring on two cylinders. The 2 cylinder misfire is the most common fault caused by the engine ECU for the Fiesta 2002 - 2008, the fault is originally caused by a faulty ignition coil pack that spikes voltage back to the engine ECU and blows the ignition output circuits for 2 of the cylinders. We can test and rebuild your engine ECU to cure this problem." - http://www.ecutesting.com/ford/ford_fiesta_2002-2008_ecu_faults.html
  2. I have yet to send my ecu off for repair, perhaps a remap might work, but then as stooge says it may happen again.

  15. Speedo & Ecu - My Story

    The stuttering and over-revving remains. I have ordered a Ford Focus Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). I have booked it's MOT + new TPS installation for this Saturday so I'll let you know how she drives! Fingers crossed it's that. Cheers.
