Topics I've Started

Fiesta TDCi

08 January 2009 - 07:33 AM

With no responses to this previously I will try again as while the car drives ok it's just not right. Other TDCi fiesta's leave me standing. Ford want the car booked in to run checks but I would rather try the obvious 1st.

I am convinced that the car is lacking power. Particularly accelarating it seems to drop at 3000 rpm.

The car has been to Ford who say there is nothing wrong but did a software update and supposedly road tested. The car seems fine at lower revs but I am not convinced there is not an issue.

Does anyone know if disconnecting the air flow meter should be noticable when driving? I ask as I used to have a Galaxy TDi and it had Air Flow meter problems and when it was disconnected the difference was considerable once the meter was working.

Advice welcome.

Thanks
