      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      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 1300 finesse
  1. Engine Over-run

    Hi chaps, first time on the forum, hoping someone may be able to help me out. My Fiesta 1300 Finesse suffers for an intermittant engine over-run. Can go days without problem, then suddenly, as I'm changing through the gears, the engine revs do not reduce when I depress the clutch, but stay "high". Also, when changing down the gears approaching, say traffic lights or a roundabout, the engine over-revs substantially. Only "cure" is to turn of ingition and re-start. Car is regulary serviced etc. and I have no problems starting the engine. Choke works ok and "goes off" one the engine is warm. I have a Haynes manual and am mechanically competant. Can anyone help and pin-point the problem for me please? Regards & thanks Ray
