Slight Lack Of Power At Gearchange

28 December 2013 - 10:08 AM

Morning All,


Over the last couple of months, every time I use my wife's fiesta (2009 mk7 1.6tdci) and change gear i notice a slight lack of power as if its been starved of fuel then it pops back into life again this happens in gears 2nd-5th, the drop in power it's more noticeable if you change from 3rd to 5th, not that i do that a lot. Has anyone else experienced this, and any pointers as to what it may be would be greatly appreciated. It happens even if the AC is off as i thought it might be the WOT relay dropping the AC out under hard acceleration.
