FORD FAIR – SILVERSTONE – 6TH AUGUST 2017
Join us on the Ford Owners Club stand at Ford Fair, Silverstone on Sunday 6th August 2017.
Hi Im new to this site and im hoping someone can help with my problem as garages and mobile machanic's keep failing!! I have a 1.6 tdci focus estate 55 reg which I bought around 9 months ago. When I bought the car it ran perfect for 2 days and then suddenly it cut out on me at traffic lights. A light came on the dash that I think is engine management light ( looks a bit like the sun lol) I restarted engine and the car ran fine until I went to accelerate from a junction, the car lost power and went into limp mode. It has done this ever since. The way I get past it is to quickly turn engine off and on and it resets itself. I have had car serviced and had egr valve cleaned but didn't help. one thing I did notice is when we had a few months of hot weather it ran fine, But now its cold again its worse than ever until I have ran it for 20 mins or so. Hope someone can spread some light on the problem Thanks
