Ford Fiesta '99 switches off while driving

8 posts in this topic

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

Is it an easy DIY? or I should visit a workshop?

How can I reach the idle control valve?

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.
