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

When was the fuel filter last changed?

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. :)
