Fiesta 1.4 Tdci Only Cranks Over For Approx 2 Seconds??

14 January 2013 - 12:38 PM

My Wife tells me her 2004 Fiesta 1.4 TDCi plays up when its cold. She says she turns the key and the engine turns over but then stops. She has to try 3 or 4 times before the engine starts. When its warm it just cranks over until it starts, but when cold its as if something cuts the power to the starter motor after the engine has turned over for about 2 seconds? Any ideas on what this could be?

Noob With A Couple Of Questions

Hi All

Just bought an 2004 1.4 TDCi Ghia. Is this a MK6 Fiesta?

The car pulls to the left which I assume/hope is due to the wrong sized (?) spare wheel being fitted. It has alloys with 190/50x15s on. I note the spare is a 185/65x14. Is that normal having a smaller wheel with a higher profile tyre on it?

The passenger door mirror is cracked and I need to get another but when I looked on ebay I see some are heated and some not? Presumably I'll need to take the cover off to see if it has wires going to it or not? Are the covers easy to remove or ones with sneaky clips you end up breaking. I fthere is a knack to getting the cover off without breaking it I'd be glad to hear it.

The car only came with one key. I believe getting another ordinary key cut and cloned is simple enough but you cant get another remote key from anywhere but Fords. Is that correct? Out of interest anyone know what I can expect to pay for a cloned ordinary key from a locksmiths and what Fords charge for a second remote key?

Many thanks
