Mk4 Fiesta Engine, Starter Motor, Battery? Not Sure Whats Wrong!

06 February 2012 - 04:50 PM

Any advice or ideas are welcome, please help!
I own a W reg MK4 Fiesta 1.4 zetec. I have NEVER hasd any engine, clutch, gearbox, battery problems or anything under the bonnet basically in the 4 years i have owned it. Has always driven smooth and perfectly.

Yesterday i drove out of a parking space, stalled (embarrassing i know) and the engine would not start again. Was still turning over, battery fine etc. Towed it home, go a sort of mechanic mate who discovered that was just the fuse for the fuel pump, replaced, started fine and went to bed (it was late).

The next morning had to jump start the car because the battery was drained from the numerous attempts to start the car the day before. Took the car for a drive and it now feels HORRIBLE! Every time i put my foot on the clutch it feels like its going to stall, the car feels like its shaking when this happens. When in neutral its shaking, the car just doesn't sound good at all, almost feels like exhaust is blowing but its in mint condition! I simply cannot figure it out! Any advice or questions feel free.

Thanks, Ian.
