Well found some redex in the cupboard so stuck 150ml into a nearly full tank and gave it a drive for about 5 miles.
Smoke wasnt too bad on startup today but i still say this thing is lacking power... its a 1.4 and if you dont time it right its VERY easy to stall, slow down for a corner to 8 - 10 mph and u got no chance of pulling off in 2nd gear... put your foot down and it takes forever to climb to 4k revs.
But this is how its always been since we got it, like i say its the mrs car so i hardly drive it but from what i can tell from todays long drive is that its a Pile of S#@+!! lol
Apart from and oil change and filter, air filter... spark plugs have already been done 5k ago what else could be the trouble with it?
It baffels me... i used to have a punto 5 year ago 1.2 and that was faster than this thing! Much to my delight i dont have to drive this fiesta every day.
Its a 52plate but the 03 model (registered in feb 03)
