In Topic: 1999 Fiesta Zetec Juddering And Misfiring At Speed

Hmmm. Spoke to the mechanic this morning, he's apparently tried 2 evap sensors and it didn't clear the problem, so back to the computer to see if there's any other fault codes =/

I can only assume the fuel filter/pump has been checked and ruled out.

Can anyone suggest any other possible causes I could ask to be checked?

Just spoke to the trader, he says the garage has checked the car for faults on the computer and came up with an evap system problem. I'm not sure what this means, is it a big issue?

Thank you for your advice. I called the trader and he's arranged for his mechanic to take a look (it's in the garage now). So hopefully will have it fixed later today or tomorrow. Will post later when I've talked to the mechanic to let you know =)

Thanks Lenny, that seems logical considering how the car feels when trying to drive at speed (it feels choked). Also, it's in dire need of a service, so it wouldn't surprise me if the fuel filter has never been changed.

Do you know it its possible to check the fuel filter easily on a Fiesta? Checked the manual and googled for a diagram of location but still unsure. If I could check myself, then could buy a filter from the local motor spares and have it ready to change when I have help.

It's a big relief to know it might not be the gearbox =)
