Winter Fuel Consuption

05 December 2012 - 09:11 PM

I have a 97 1.3 Fiesta with an endura engine. All through the summer I was getting 54 mpg. However now winter has come the consumption has fallen to 40 mpg. Is it usual for the winter consumption to fall so drastically The journeys are just the same, a 20 mile commute which is mainly rural driving. Any suggestions as to why the fuel consumption has fallen so much?

Engine Misfire

24 February 2012 - 12:13 PM

After about 2 miles it starts to misfire. This can be cleared briefly by depressing the clutch but then the misfire will return after a minute or so. The misfire also clears if when moving the ignition is turned off & on again & will not return so long as the car is cruising at a constant speed. The misfire returns upon accelerating after the gears have been changed down. The air flow meter has been replaced as well as the clutch switch. Its been checked on diagnostics & no fault showed up. Anyone any ideas.
