2008 1.4 Petrol starting issues


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, a friend in work has recently bought a Fiesta, he had the battery changed 2 months ago and ever since he's had an intermittent fault.  The fault is car sometimes won't start on the first or second attempt, on the third attempt he gives it a bit of throttle and it'll start but he'll have to keep the revs up or he'll stall.  Once the engine has warmed up a bit it runs fine, I checked the battery & alternator both came back fine, I connected it to forscan but it wouldn't connect, I tried my cheap bluetooth adapter & torque which connected but didn't show any codes.


Any ideas? Ideally I'd like to find out why forscan doesn't want to play nice.

This one


Works fine on my car (2009 Fiesta) but doesn't work on my friends, I thought at first maybe there was a problem with his obd port but then I tried a cheap bluetooth adapter and the torque app on my phone and it worked fine.
