Revs Drop Until Stall After Ignition


Recommended Posts

Sup Guys

Could really do with some help.

I've got a ford fiesta flight 2001 1.3L endura E engine 89,000 hours.

Whenever I start the ignition its start fine every time, but immediately after the ignition the revs drop over a period of 30 seconds until the engine eventually stalls. Regardless of whether I try to raise the revs with the medal, it doesnt help.

recently it broke down due "miss firing" after which new ignition/HT leads were fitted. Now this issue has cropped up and I've tried having the battery and spark plugs replaced with no change.

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated

Aha I had no idea it was so bad. It was sold as being super reliable, load of !Removed! that turned out to be. I had bought a new coil pack, but I've notice that from beneath the oil filter is in the way, and will need taking off.

I guess it could also be the alternator, I was thinking because of the 30 second time frame maybe its the oxygen sensor heating up and adjusting the fuel air ratio until stalls. Is there a way I can test its the alternator or coilpack ?
