6 posts in this topic

Hi all,

my run around 1.25 zetec cut out last week, had rac out to it and it will start but then cuts out.

if you pump the trottle it will stay running, tho there is bits of something coming from the exhaust, i can feel it.

all plugs are firing and are new, there is no air blockage.

rac cant find whats wrong. full tank of full in it to and the coil and leads seem fine according to the rac.

any idears would be most welcome.

thanks.
