2012 Fiesta Metal Loss of Power/ Drive


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. 

First post so sorry if this is elsewhere on the site or supposed to be somewhere else. I've searched the forum and can't seem to find a similar issue so hopefully someone can help. 

I drive a Fiesta Metal 1.6 Petrol. I love the car to bits and it's got just the right amount of power for me (especially with my previous car being a flat VW Polo running 85BHP).

Occasionally when I'm driving I get an issue with the power in my car. The car will be driving absolutely normal and all of a sudden the power will drop. I get no warning lights or error messages at all. Coming off or going no on the accelerator pedal makes no difference at all. However when I pull over to the side of the road or change gear the problem seems to rectify itself. 

Has anybody got any ideas where I can start looking for problems, is this fairly common? or shall I go straight down the diagnosis route? As I don't get any warning lights and because I can't replicate the fault I worry that nothing will be found. 

Any ideas will be appreciated!

that would suggest a fuel flow issue. I would check when the fuel filter was last replaced. By taking your foot off the gas, your reducing the pressure, allowing the fuel to flow more efficiently.


Next time this happens, just take your foot off the gas, leave it for a few seconds, and gently apply the gas again.
