Fiesta P Reg Idle Speed

Recommended Posts

Hello all

P reg Fiesta 1.25. Just changed the engine. Got the new one running tonight and it sounds really nice but the idle speed is too low. The engine sounds sweet on a little throttle but too low when you release the throttle.

It got too dark to spend too much time on it tonight so I thought I'd come back and ask the experts where I should check next.

Thanks in advance

Stu

You need to sort the timing I think. (something along those lines) Take it to a garage because if you get it wrong you'll kill the fuel economy.

Sorted now. One of the vacuum pipes on the throttle housing had a blanking plug on and on the new engine I'd missed this off. Running sweet now, but has an overheating issue which is the subject of a new post

Thanks Orcomma I'll check the pipes out.

Hula89 was that a serious reply <_<

It was a serious reply one of my mates had the mk6 1.25 and his was like this and it was becuase the previous owner had messed with the timing or something.
