Leak ?

27 June 2013 - 05:22 AM

Hi Guys

 

My car (fiesta 09 1.4 diesel) has a leak kind of underneath the passenger side foot well. It appears to be water dripping out from a flexible piece of flat metal.  Any ideas what that could be ?

 

Thanks

Hello all

 

Can anyone help, when accelerating at a constant rate in 3rd gear the car starts juddering/sputtering. if i increase or decrease the acceleration it clears its self. It only happens in 3rd gear any ideas thanks.

Diesel Smell

27 February 2013 - 07:50 AM

hello all

i need a bit of help, my fiesta 09 1.4 smells of diesel, when stationary it comes in through the vents. if you lift the bonnet it really is a strong smell like unburnt diesel (straight from the pump) ive also noticed my fuel consumption seems to be reduced. i took it to the garage yesterday and they "forgot" to look at it(never use bristol street motors). any ideas ?

thanks Tom

Anti Stall

27 October 2012 - 06:12 AM

Hello everyone

I have just bought a fiesta 1.4 diesel edge 09 plate

Does any one have problems with the anti stall feature, ive looked everywhere for information on it and found nothing.

when slowing down the anti stall kicks in way to early causing the car to surge forward. this is happening a good few meters before i would usually put the clutch in. the engine isnt struggelling at this point. it results in a very uneven braking.

It can be solved by putting the clutch down alot earlier, but the problem is i am a driving instructor and i try not to teach coasting (prolonged periods with the clutch down)

Is there any way to disable this feature ? it actually make it harder to smoothly control the car when slowing down , any ideas would be great thanks
