Hi All I have just signed up and I am very optimistic in finding answers to my queries. Thanking in advance. I have recently bought 2013 ford s-max zetec 2.0 tdci powershift 140 from an auction. I max a decision after having driven the same car but with manual transmission hoping the auto would be the same. However the car is extremeky sluggish especially when setting from a dead stop. It's so sluggish that i think it will be impossible to drive it on junction and pulling off from round about. I hope don someone who has the same car can suggest whether it's just my car or this is how the auto drives. To add to my worries I have an engine malfunction light on the dash which disappears as soon as the car starts. It also has an 'í' warning in dash but I dont know whether these warning lights are an indication of a problem causing sluggish drive. Please help as this is my first Ford and I haven't got a clue of what to do. The pictures attached show both warning lights and their disappearance when engine is running. Finally, the car is a 2013 plate, from London and has 17000 miles on block suggesting shorter journeys and low miles got the age. Wing side mirror is broken. Thanks
Hi, basically I have a 2009 1.6 focus zetec I know it's no rocket but I drove my nans 2006 1.6 ghia today and it feels a lot more smoother to drive, my car feels as if it struggles to pull away in comparison, anything guys cheers?
Hello, I own a MK3 Focus Zetec, 1.6L Manual. When the engine is cold and I pull away the revs drop incredibly low and I have to dip the clutch to prevent it from stalling and sorta balance the clutch and accelerator until the power comes back and I can drive like normal, I have never had this sort of problem before with any other car when the engine is cold. I just want to know if anyone else has this problem or if there could be anything wrong with the car such as the electronic accelerator control? Thank you.
