ka 3 cutting out!!

4 posts in this topic

Hi all,my wife's ford KA 3 keeps cutting out when slowing down to junctions. It seems to do it as you put the foot down on the clutch and the revs drop,even thou the clutch is well down. It has started to do this more often now and its starting to get very dangrous. Any help would be greatfull........ Many thanks Paul.....

sounds like the idle speed controlle valve playing up its a common problem, try cleaning it with carb cleaner. it could also be the speed sensor starting to break down.

you can also try cleaning the temp wire that's connected to the engine at the front of the engine

it's a simple bayonet fitting that's used.

keep us posted if you get it sorted m8
