Hey!

This has happened a couple of times but happened twice tonight, when the car is floored it seems to get to a certain point and comes up with engine malfunction then the engine cuts out for about 4-5seconds. Any idea what it could be?

Might call ford tomorrow and get them to see what it could be,

Thanks

Alright Steve, I was the guy parked next to you at Ford Fair!

Does sound like fuel starvation and as above first thing to try would be the fuel filter.

Ps, have you seen the pics I took in the fiesta area? I've got some high res versions if you'd like them.

Hi Steve, As has been advised its likely the fuel filter. I had the same issue Zetec, basically the fuel filter had a hole in it. when I drove up to 2500 revs it was fine, although putting my foot down harder than that caused a vacuum, the vacuum took air in through the hole in the fuel filter and then injected air into the engine. As we all know, air doesnt burn very well! so the only way to start it again was to get fuel back in.

I suspect a new filter is required, whether clogged, or damaged, it sounds like its one or the other!
