In Topic: 1.25 initial throttle responsw

23 March 2009 - 06:41 AM

Mine's happening only in 2nd gear. Never on the 1st, 3rd,etc...My solution: Use the first gear up to 3000rpm before shifting to 2nd, thus gaining more momentum to the car. Flat spot no more.

In Topic: Amazing little fiesta...(or maybe not?)

The official 0-62MPH time (0-100KmPH) is 9.9 so yes it is most probably about 10 seconds... although that's the official ford specifications... I recon if it was pushed it would do it in about 9.5... not that that makes much of a difference but hay!

I'm not referring to the 0-100kph in seconds gents :P ...but the driver's top speed which is 205kph. Does a zetec 1.25 really has this capability? :unsure:

In Topic: Squeeky Acceleration

26 February 2009 - 12:55 PM

(i think its my clutch) seems to squeek on acceleration when i am travelling fast
Any ideas?

Are you sure it's not the belts that's slipping(alternator,fan belts,etc..)? Very common and sounds similar to a screeching tire. A faulty belt roller/tensioner squeaks too!

In Topic: Engine cuts out

22 February 2009 - 06:45 AM

How about trying to stay in "neutral" when you stop at junctions. I have this problem before (cutting out)..but I soon discovered that the longer I put my foot on the clutch pedal(first gear) while waiting for the green light, the more frequent I cut out at intersections! So just give it a try if it make some difference. I don't know though how it somehow elliminate my problem. Make a report here after you tried it. Just be fast on the gears...or the one behind you will make some nasty honking :-)
