Hello,

 

i have a for fiesta zetec s 1.6

2000 model

 

but iv got a bit of a problem

 

the car was sitting for a year basiclly but i bought it yesterday, and when ni started it it was jump lumpy n the power was not there so i thought maybe spark plug n leads need changing so i bought new plugs and leads and is ticking over a bit better then what it was but the power was still not there but once u get in second gear n pick up speed it fine just in first gear...

 

so i took it to a garage to be put on a machine n it come up 02 heater sensor would that make the car run like that n make it loss its power or could it be something else ??

 

please someone help i no good with fiesta iv just had bad luck with all fiestas lol

 

 

 

Thanks

Dave

quite possible, but as its been sitting idle for a year i wouldnt condemn it yet

 

if possible, give it a decent run on a motorway, may well clear itself.

 

be aware though, sitting around doing nothing for a while may cause an issue with the rubber timing belt...if it was mine, i would change that and the oil/filter as a matter of course...to be on the safe side

it can yes.

the sensor can be tested with the right equipment, or an emmission check might help diagnose the fault...but still think just a decent run may cure it...a good old italian tune up :)

why not give it a run first...might save you a few quid

 

but if you do renew, get a decent one, cheap ones are a waste of money...go for original/ngk/bosch or beru makes

I had the exact same problem and it was the coil pack, engine was misfiring on cylinder 4 particularly when the engine was cold and would drive dead lump and jumpy for the first few minutes in 1st + 2nd gear

coil pack mate mine used to do the same changed all leads etc then did coil pack last and thats what it was. from ford there £30 + vat which is cheap. a few year back they were common to go and they retailed at £80 + 

 

hope this helps

all very true...just because a code is set for o2, doesnt necessarily mean thats where the actual fault is...in fact, more often than not, it isnt.
