In Topic: Ford Fiesta Encore 1.3 Engine Cutting Out Whilst Slowing Down

The new idle valve seems to have done the trick. Not tested it properly on the motorway but  been out for a bit of a drive and been giving it a lot of revs and releasing the accelerator and it is idling much more smoothly and not cutting out. Infact it's idling so much better that I keep thinking the engine is off!

No, I first noticed it about a month ago on a drive to wales during the warm weather, than it was hit and miss but it seems to have gradually got a bit worse since then.

 

I've ordered a replacement idle throttle valve so I'll try that first then report back.

Yeh well, I put more oil in the other day actually so Oil should be ok. The spark plugs are only about 18 months old so I'm not too sure they would be a problem, I've just bought a valve of ebay for about 15 quid so I'll see what happens with that, Looks easy enough to fit so worth a shot first. The coil looks like it might be a bit harder to do if it is that,

I think I may have narrowed it down to the idle air control valve although I could be wrong.

 

here is a video that I took this afternoon.

 

Basically just revving the car a bit whilst the car is parked up and then as soon as the revs drop the car either stutters or like in the video it just cuts out.

 

Should I have a go at maybe just cleaning the valve or replacing it? I think they are going pretty cheap on ebay, That's provided it is the valve anyway.

Thanks, Going to start first with the spark plugs tomorrow, I did have a quick look yesterday and saw that one of the spark plugs was considerably dirtier than the other 3 , Not sure if that means anything But I'll replace those first anyway.

 

I'll look into getting the air filter changed too.

 

I've been told to check for leaks in any pipes but not 100% sure which pipes to look at. I can see 2 pipes from the IAC valve so I'm going to check those but is there anything else I could look at?
