I'm being told that this is normal for my car (by Ford), though I don't believe this is correct, has anyone else had issues or should I believe what I am being told? Thanks

Have something to contribute?

Moved to Fiesta Forum.

I assume you have a Zetec S? Which engine are you referring to? Also what do you mean by lumpy?

It is a zetec s, sorry! It's a 1.6 ti-vct. It's lumpy when the revs pick up between 1500-3000rpm, when the car is in neutral. You feather the throttle between 1500-3000rpm and its noticeably lumpy. Thanks

Has it always done it, or only since the service?

I don't know as I have only just bought it. I just need to know if it is usual for this car to be like that or not, Ford are saying it is.

I'd expect a diesel to be lumpyish but not a petrol... Can u get a second opinion from another ford garage?

Hi

I would say it isn't normal. My zs has done 43000 and isn't lumpy at all.

If its got warranty take it to ford.

Regards
Adrian.
