Jerky Acceleration

26 July 2014 - 06:17 PM

say im rolling in gear at 30mph,if i press the throttle progressively,nothing will hapen for the first 3mm and then it will jerk,theres no smooth delivery of power.


the only thing i can think of is the air box,its not held on tightly as 3 of the 5 screws or w/e are threaded so i can literally half remove the top cover by hand.Or could it be anything to do with the MAF or anything else inside it?Also dont like the way it coasts along it feels jerky in itself and the revs appear to stick although im not 100% as ive only done about 300 miles in it over the last 2 months :P


i've had a split intercooler pipe on the focus and it didnt jerk but i presume thats a different thing.


When i stab the throttle in neutral it makes the sporty sound it has but you can hear a tssss but its not there throughout the reving. I'll post a video of the sound.


any ideas?

How To Sort Rust?

27 June 2014 - 09:39 PM

I've got a zs fiesta,there's some rust on the underside of the car that I want to sand down and then paint with that black paint seal stuff.
What I wanna know is,do I just simply use a wire brush bit on my sander,or do I need to use certain grit sandpapers?

Anyone tell me or show me a link with a good guide,much appreciated.

My second ford is a 1.6 mk5 zetec S,currently lowered by the previous owner and some detangoed lights but that's it.

Was thinking of st150 brakes on the front and back or anything better?

An exhaust setup

Air induction kit

Rear seat removal and better front seats (don't want racing ones though)
Prefer leather seats but I've seen some really nice material ones,any advice on straight swaps?

Interior modifications?

And I really need an outdoor cover for it aswell so if anybody can recommend a good one,particularly if it's a tailored one I'd appreciate it.

And of course to really get the Bhp flowing,plenty of stickers!

Need Some Advice On Mk5 Fiesta

07 June 2014 - 07:40 PM

looking for a fiesta at the moment,either a zetec s mk5 or zetec mk6,doesnt seem to be many of either about in a fair price range,just passed one as i drove home literally 2 miles from me,its not on the internet so i went back andhad a look around it,wasnt any visible rust besides the spare wheel carrier bit.The rear arches had the material protector things in place and the owner wasnt around so i didnt want to start messing with things too much.was parked on grass so i couldnt see all that well underneath.


From what i could see it needed a left side headlight as it had a crack in it,2 front seats as theyre quite stained and the steering wheel was worn (as youd expect for a 13 year old car).


Are there seats i can get from other fords that would fit in there?


he wants £1k with 92k miles tax runs out at the end of the month,seems a fair price although id liketo knock him down to £850 due to seats and other bits


any other things i should look at? and would my obd2 reader work on it if i plugged it in?
