My partner has a new fiesta and on saturday, with just 300 miles on the clock, I got a call from him to say that he'd broken down. Turning the engine over the centre display was flashing "Engine Malfunction - Service Now" and the engine was pulsing to about 1.5K revs about every second.

Garage recovery came, got in, pulled away and came back two minutes later and said that it was out of fuel (embarrassed) ! followed him on way to garage and you could see the car bouncing, pulled in and recovery put some petrol in but still had same problem with engine pulsing. Recovery said it might be the cam?

I know that new cars have 'teething problems' but does anyone know what may be wrong??

300 miles? Is your car not under warranty then?

As the car is new, let the dealer sort it out.
It does sounds like a fueling issue, but its their headache, not yours
