      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. My focus has started to stutter/misfire when I accelerate it only happens when in a low speed for the gear but normally the engine will handle it not a problem so for example 20mph in 3rd gear should be a problem accelerating up but the engine seems to stutter/misfire until the car is at a speed this problem is the same for all gears but 5th as the car speed is enough also fine in 1st again as the gearing is meant for that speed. can anyone advise please?
  2. Stupidly almost ran out of petrol on 2 occasions tho the second wouldn't have been so drastic had the nearest garage not happened to have run out of diesel! Anyway, ever since my Mondeo MK3 tdci 2003 estate has been misfiring above 30-40 miles an hour. Not massively but noticeably. Seems to improve with use but then reverts on next drive. I've assumed because of letting the fuel run low and that there are bits now in the pipes but still doing it 2-3 weeks later. Might an EGR valve clean be in order or could it be more serious than that. I've learned my fuel management lesson!
  3. My friend has got a Ford KA, 2003, which the engine management light is on and the car is juddering as soon as the engine is turned on. They have changed the spark plugs and coil pack as per recommendation from a garage however it still has the problem. The HT leads haven't been changed however they are still sparking. Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks Jayne
  4. I'm new to the forum (never asked for help with a car online before!) and hoping for some advice, or for info from someone who may have experienced this problem. Last week, I bought a 1999 Ford Fiesta 1.25 Zetec. My dad had given it the once over, took it for a test run and (with it having a full MOT) everything seemed fine. I drove it round town for a few days, everything seemed lovely. Having not had a Fiesta before, I really enjoyed driving it. However, the first time I took it above 40mph on a dual carriageway, I noticed a major problem. In fourth/fifth gear, trying to get above 45mph, the car starts to judder in a rather scary way and sounds as though the engine is getting ready to blow up. It really struggles in 5th gear, and both dad and I struggled to get it above 50mph. Driving normally around town (as I usually do) everything seems fine, it's a dream to drive. What could be wrong with it? Dad at first wondered if it was something to do with the drive shaft, now wondering if gearbox may be the problem? Had gearbox fluids checked already; it could do with a service and we don't know when the timing belt was last changed so planned to do these jobs as soon as I bought it. I really do like the car, but have such a tight budget, basically used all the saving I had to get the car in the first place, and shopped around for weeks to make sure I'd got a car which wouldn't need any expensive work doing straight away. If anyone has a good idea of what could be wrong, it will help me figure out whether to try and return it (bought from a small-time local dealer) or whether it could be easily fixed. TBH, I'm a bit gutted as I do really like the car. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
