Focus Loosing Power

31 January 2015 - 05:56 PM

Hi, I have a 1.6 tdci focus, lately after about 5/10mins of driving in really cold weather if I pull off from lights or a round about it looses power as I change into second! To the point were I pull over and it stalls. It starts straight back up and 9 times out of 10 it runs perfectly after that, once it did it again straight away but then drove great. Just before this started happening I had the alternator changed by a friend that knows a bit about cars (I haven't told him about this just incase its him who broke it and he did me a huge favour so don't want him feeling bad). He removed a peice of kit that sits just above the alternator that has a few air hoses connected to it and I swear 1 of them had a little split. I can take a pic of this part in the morning as its dark now. To help the only way I can explain the problem is like when you used to have a manual choke on old cars and you left it out for too long and it hesitates!? Hope this helps. Thanks a lot if you can help!!
