Hi Guys, being a new member and a new owner of a ford, thought I would ask you as enthusiasts if you could help me to diagnose my car problem. I am a petrol head in general and this particular problem tells me it's a fuel problem, however unsure as to which part would cause it??
I bought the car from Ebay!! I know not the best place to buy cars, but any way in 5 days done approx 500 miles problem free, but last night my engine started jerking intermittently, giving me short bursts of power followed by no power, then the power would return for a few yards and then repeat all over again. Finally when I slowed to a junction in the road, I had to come to a stop and the engine stalled here. It did start again, chuffing out plumes of Blue smoke, however following a 500 yard distance of slowly failing power the engine died and refused to start up again at all.
My initial thoughts are Fuel pump, or turbo.
Any thoughts welcomed!!!
Thank you!

it could be a fuel delivery problem so check the simple stuff first like fuel filter/air filter, the blue smoke is a worry and suggests oil being burnt,the two common faults on the oil side are valve steam oil seals or the turbo seals leaking.
