#141483 Cv Joint Failure?

Posted by Dougal on 25 August 2011 - 01:01 PM

If there is an issue so soon after a series of pre-checks, there should not really be a quibble about them checking ot over. A CV joint in really bad condition is not good (although at the age of the car it would be unlikely to be a CV unless its relatively high mileage).
I would take it in for piece of mind, and tell them to shove any bill where the sun don't shine. If its a serious mechanical problem, it would be picked up in teh pre-checks.

Oh, and my fault has recently developed to complete power loss, happens occassionally, change gear and put foot down, nothing, Revs just drop all the way back to idle. Not sure if this is related. But these 2 faults are really ruining my first car experience :/


Sounds like EGR or the Throttle body breather issues that you used to get in older cars. I used to have similar issues with Vauxhalls. A right lumpy ride they were when they got clogged with all the carbon crap.

Can't fault that, I've had a lot faster cars for a lot less than the Fiesta, me just need something that that's fairly secure (better than my kit car), gets me from A to B with the rest of the traffic (my average speed isn't high according to the computer LOL) oh and is very reliable.


True enough. I had a Alfa 147 (150) and it was great car to drive (when it wasn't on a ramp). Moved to a Fiesta as a cost cutting exercise. I like the cheap running and gadgets, but miss some decent torque.
