I now have a cure at last! The OSF shock absorber started to leak this week and showed itself to be defective. It has been replaced and now I can enjoy driving again!

In Topic: Cutting out

All I can say is that yes I experienced something similar and I have every sympathy with you.

It happened to my last Ford; a '93/'94 Mondeo Estate which kept cutting out when the revs reduced and I was slowing down to stop. Ford were none the wiser either and in my opinion ripped me off charging me 500 to clean the engine out with what they described as 'a revolutionary new engine cleaning treatment'. :blink:

I spent around 700 all in vain and eventually had to sell the car. I still don't know what was the cause. Sorry.

Have they looked at the CV joint?, also you need to get the coil spring on the other side changed they should be done in pairs its dangerous otherwise.



I did wonder about the other coil spring but was told it was fine. The spring that was replaced was badly worn and the noise disappeared after it was fitted but soon returned. Will look into the CV Joint.

Thanks for your suggestions.
