The worst piece of equipment ever produced by Ford
Posted 12 April 2008 - 01:44 PM
So, let's all hear about it!
To kick this off, here is my nomination for the 'DROP IT IN THE SKIP' Award.
The Sonic Idle/VV carb. What an absolute waste of metal this thing is. It just chokes all the power out of the pinto engine. I should be getting about 86bhp, but with this abomonation I'm lucky to get 50! Whoever is respoosible for this needs taking out and given a job at BMW!
Who 's next?

How about the idle control valve on the Ford Ka. My sister has had a new one on both Ka's she had, my mum had 1 on hers and my mates boss has just had to have a new one. Very common problem.
You don't need a new one. All you need to do is remove the electric clip thingy, then the two bolts (top and bottom), then put some wd40 through it and a cloth and clean till your hearts content.
I had a KA for a oodle of years and I used to do this regularly because the damn thing kept cutting out when trying to stop.

Why not mould the clips into the moulding so that it doesnt fall off after a while due to the glue breaking down!
