Delay In Revs Coming In, Easy Stall - 2006 Tdci

10 March 2014 - 01:23 PM



I have what is really just an annoyance at the moment, but wondering if anyone knows what might be causing it as it would be nice to resolve!


I have an early 2006 1.8 TDCi, and the problem is that when I pull up at a junction (for example) and then go to pull away after being stationery for a few seconds, the engine does not react to the accelerator peddle being pressed and I nearly stall. Prime example would be when I pull up, stop and then someone immediately flashes to let me out, I press the accelerator and start letting the clutch out and there's no more revs than tickover, so I have to wait a couple of seconds and then the revs kick in.


If I have been stationery for say 10 seconds it will be fine, so it's only when I have just stopped and literally go to pull away again.


Not seeing any other issues except for a flattish spot around 1500-1700 rpm where it feels a bit hesitant and jerky at times, but I suspect this is roughly where the turbo kicks in.


Mileage is around 75,000.


Any thoughts?

Speakers Dead Down Right Hand Side

30 September 2013 - 09:36 PM



Bought a 56 Focus last year and since the outset the speakers have been dead down the right side of the car - both front and rear, woofers and tweeters.

I assumed that the right channel had blown in the standard head unit.


Today I replaced the head unit with my old Pioneer one which I know works fine.

However, the right side speakers are still silent.


All the wires are plugged in at the connector and there are no signs that the wiring is damaged or been interfered with.


I know that in the history of the car, the entire dashboard was removed by Ford due to a problem with the aircon or something, and the previous owner (who had it from new) said that the speakers on the right had been dead for years.


I wonder if there is a connector of something in the loom that never got reconnected when the dashboard was removed.


So if there is anyone out there who has experience of the speaker part of the loom and can shed some light on this, it'd be greatly appreciated - I'd rather not have to run new speaker wiring if at all possible.
