      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    Fiesta MK4 1996
  1. stalling!

    Have been back to a main Ford dealer to have a diagnostic run on my P reg Fiesta mk4 1.3. According to the computer, it's fine, though it had been running a bit lean ( which they sorted out). But despite replacing the air-control valve- (which seemed to work for a while) it stiil cuts out at low speed, and has problems when accelerating- it hesitates for a while- then accelerates like fury as if something has been blocking the fuel. It has been suggested that the coil packs may need replacing?...or HT leads?...then of course disconecting the air-volume monitoring unit to test if that is interfering some how. any further tips, info...greatfully received.
  2. running problems

    Hi Steve, just read your diagnosis below...I have a smilar situation. I've replaced my air control valve which worked for a while, but now I'm back to cutting out after breaking or slowing. Can you explain where abouts I should be checking for any split? Thanks in advance Lou
  3. Intermitant stalling

    I have a 1996 1.3 fiesta LX, which has developed a habit of stalling partically at low speed in heavy traffic where short 1st/2nd gears are selected. I've replaced the air flow valve (as suggested on assorted fault finding forums) which worked for a while but now the problem has resurfaced. Pretty sure its not injectors as have used REDEX over the last 3 months in an attempt to solve this. The only thing I'm thinking is it may be the fuel filter but any advice would be most welcome.
