hi all, i bought me a 1996 fiesta 1.25 ghia (manual) and its a lovely car but it idles erratically. i have cleaned, unplugged and even removed the maf sensor/air flow meter, and it idles normally for a few seconds, then goes back to up and down idling, i would say between 500 to 1000rpm. ok its not the worst problem in the world but it shouldnt be doing this, and i was sure it would be the air flow meter until i cleaned it. Can anyone help? do these have auto chokes, and could this be the problem?

Have something to contribute?

Hello and welcome to the club

(Post moved from new members introductions)

I would imagine it would have an auto choke but not sure whether this would be the problem, it could be the ecu playing up as i had this problem in my old clio.
