2001 2.0 Lx Petrol Running Problems???

09 May 2012 - 08:36 PM

Hi all,

I have a 2001 mondeo estate which has recently began to play up. When I pull away the car starts to jolt and pull bk, if I drive very slowly and let the car pick up speed it's not so bad. But if I try to drive at a reasonable pace or overtake it doesn't like it. Again it pulls bk and judders.

I suspect it's a fuel related problem as the car was running perfectly until I lent it to a friend who let the car run very low on fuel and the problem happened immediately after I got it bk! I've had a new fuel filter fitted and the throttle body cleaned which did make it 90% better but now it's just as bad as before.

Just wondered if anyone had any ideas on what this could be? Any help would be highly appreciated!
