hi all

i have an '02 fusion 2 1.4 16v

it starts and drives fine

but on occasions, it will just cut out on decceleration

as i'm slowing down coming up to a junction for instance, the engine will just die

it will re-start without problem by either bumping it while its still moving, or by the key

i've fitted new plugs, ht leads and coil seem ok

i've checked usual connectors ands hoses etc

but cant find anything amiss

i have an OBD reader, but that doesnt show any faults

it doesnt cut out all the time, or at any peticular moment

some days it wont do it at all, or on some journeys it may do it 1/2/3 times

 

can anyone help? i'm at a miss

many thanks for reading

only bought the car recently

have to say though, that when i bought it, it had just about NO fuel in it

have tried some red-ex in the tank, which seems to be helping a bit

 

do you think a fuel filter change might be advisable?

Well its 10 or 15 quid max so probably, either way you aren't losing anything.

Changing the fuel filter certainly won't hurt, but am I right in assuming it dies when you press the clutch to change down gears?

 

If so, then the idle control valve could be the problem.

In these circs I'd be checking your crank sensor. When they fail they cause intermittent no start/cut out. :)

Hi, my Fusion is doing exactly the same thing. I have a bit of history though which may help. I had my cam belt changed but in the process of doing it the mechanics couldn't get the main bolt out, after a while and having to cut the bolt they were able to change the belt.

After that was done my engine would just cut out going round corners but as the previous poster said not frequently. I had sensors put on and the engine checked but nothing was found. So they decided to strip it back down to the cam belt and start again just to make sure nothing was damaged etc. Well this has made the issue considerably worse. Its going back in on Tuesday but we had to get a new code for the radio as the one that was with the manual did not work so we went to our local Ford dealership to get one, while there we asked one of the head mechanics if they had any idea. So he jumped in and took it for a spin ( (cut out on him and then he made it happen several times) and his diagnosis was that the cam timer is out.

Now this is probable for my case due to my issues starting after the cam belt was changed. I'll certainly mention to my mechanic about the crank sensor, idle control valve as well as the cam timing.

Fingers crossed you get your car sorted as i hope mine will be.
