Hi folks, need advice with something. Ive got a Fiesta Metal, had it now for about 6 months, its on a 12 plate. Just recently ive noticed that when i put my foot down, say to pull away in traffic, overtake etc, ive noticed that the engine is 'pinking'. Like in the old days when your engine would be too advanced/!Removed! and you had to mess about adjusting the distributor......but obviously now a days, thats not possible. So was wondering if its worth a phone call to my local Ford Dealership (where i got the car from)....or would it solve the problem if i had it re-mapped (which i was thinking about doing). The thing is, i know that the dealership will probably just do a diagnostic check on it and if it comes back with no faults but its still 'pinking' then what would be my next course of action . Some people have suggested that it could be the fuel, but i go to different garages for fuel so dont see how it could be that.
Any advice would be grateful......just to add, noticed it doesnt seem as responsive as it was when i first got it.
