Power Drops\flattens When Driving

27 September 2013 - 12:35 PM

My 56 Fiesta Ghia (55000 miles) has a problem where I am constantly getting hesitant acceleration and flat spots when driving. I will be driving at a constant speed but the power will suddenly drop\flatten, but then picks up again a few seconds later.


I have just heard back from Ford garage (who were crap) that they can't find a problem (but can replicate the issue) and have replaced the spark plugs.......for £85.




- occurs especially when lightly pressing accelerator, but also when pressing harder

- no engine lights
- getting progressively worse
- doesn't overheat
- no excessive fuel consumption
- no mis-fire or stalling
- no unusual engine noises
- tick over seems fine
any ideas?

Fiesta 56 - Rear Heated Windscreen Stopped Working

14 January 2013 - 04:02 PM

My Fiesta 56 plate (mk5) rear heated windscreen has suddenly stopped working. I have replaced the small fuse behind the glove box no change. The light comes on the button when pressed on the dash and something clicks (sound like from drivers side somewhere). Been looking at 'relays' not sure if this is correct or where I can find the rear windscreen heat relay anyway?

Obviously I know nothing about stuff like this, can anyone advise? Thanks
