Random power dip


Recommended Posts

If I am trying to build up a lot of speed I may not drive very economically. What I have started to notice is that if I accelerate quickly in say third gear to around 40-50mph then power dips by about 1-2kRPM I usually just come off and go back on the throttle then change gear. 

It doesn't feel like a misfire in that it doesn't stutter, its like taking the foot off the power that sort of reaction from the car, despite my foot being planted. There has been no warning light on the engine though I have yet to try the Trip reset diagnostic thingy. Is this something I should be concerned about? 


The car is a 14 plate Ford Fiesta.
