HI I HOPE SOMEONE CAN HELP I HAVE A N REG FIESTA 1.3.

Hi, you might want to check the throttle body for carbon build up. The butterfly valve may be sticking due to it being gummed up.

Just take of the intake hose and spray into the throttle body some throttle body cleaner. I've used 'BG 406' in the past and it's worked quite well.

That said, if you really want to clean it well you should completely remove the throttle body and clean it then.

It could be the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). Not sure how to test for a faulty one, and I think they are expensive to replace so I wouldn't replace it without being sure.

Best thing to do is get a diagnostic done. Go to a good local garage, because Ford dealers tend to rip you off from quotes that I've had.
