Gears Not Selecting

09 June 2013 - 12:47 PM

Hi everyone long time no see how is everyone.


Got a problem with my beloverd little fiesta 51 plate 1.3i. Yesterday all was fine until i taxi pulled out in front of me which caused me to slam on has if kept on going after blowing the horn i floored it in 1st gear to get away.


After i done that car felt i bit strange i found it juddering when takeing off in first gear and very hard to select 3rd gear. Now with the engine off goes through all the gears nice and smooth it's just when the engine is on can be a pain.


The car just has over 100,000 miles on it so i am wondering what the problem could be.

Hi everyone i drive a fiesta mk5 1.3i endure e engine petrol 51 plate. I got me self some spark plugs today has i am service my car next week in college. Now i had a gift voucher for halfords so i got them from there. Now i normally buy ngk ones but after giveing the sales assistant in halfords my reg number he comes back with bosch superplus spark plugs plus yttrium. Now i've been searching the web and these plugs have quite good reviews.

But i am a little confussed has these plugs look abit fancy for my little fiesta. So i have been on the halfords website typed in my reg and these plugs have come back has being ok for my car. But does anyone know what the diffrence with bosch superplus and any other spark plug? I don't want to put them in and cause damage or something.

Any help is gratefull
