my 96 fiesta

2 posts in this topic

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?

cheers

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.
