Hello Escort fans,

I have just got myself a mk6 escort 1.8 si estate about a week ago on a R plate.
All seemed great until this morning... here goes the facts.

Temp seems ok
It's ticks over ok, seem really smothe.
but between 2000 and 3000 revs sometimes more the car feels like it being held back.
I've been doing lots of digging around on the internet today so going to check the following tonight,

MAF
ISCV
Air temp sensor...

Is there anything else you can think if that would cause this?
The car has not long been serviced, which is why i cant get my head round it..

Hope someone can help or shed some light on this..

Thanks

Stu

Right, Problem solved!! :D

It's was a faulty Lambda sensor, which caused the Cat to burnout. Should start getting decent MPG out of her now..lol

Replaced both, now the car is back to it's former escort glory!
