Hi all,
am newbie here,hope you could be tolerent with me.
I have Ford Fiesta '99,1.3 engine,after the engine warms up and while driving,when I come across junctions,I slow down I see the engine switches off !!!,this happens around 4 to 5 times a day,also I notice that it has rough idling,some told me it is the idle control,others told me it is the air mass.
What do you think?
Thanks in advance

its not a mechanics job really, basically if u look at ur engine its just above it, its hard to explain what it looks like, but mine went on mine, what happened with mine was that when u rev it up and let it drop it kept dropping n just stopped altogether. Basically thats what u need below, its easy enough to see, once you look at the picture then at your engine, you'll spot it just above it.

its a diy job as far as i can remember as diferent models have different valves

It could be a cylindrical oblect with a plug on it, bolted on the injector body, clean it out wit some carb cleaner, NO sharp objects.
