      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.

  1. Fiesta Mk4 Doing My Head In

    Thanks, I´ve found the MAP sensor and the Lambda sensor, the IAT sensor I think needs some digging around under the air filter ( it´s not anywhere on the intake tube or manifold) and the engine temp sensor will need some digging around but now I know where it is ,or should be. I´ll let you know what I find, Cheers!

    Thanks Dieselpig, to be honest I don´t know,but I´ll certainly check up on that ,after I find out where those sensors are. That would explain why the diagnostic computer is giving confusing readings (?)

    Sorry, it´s fuel injection, and it´s not the injectors because they tried a replacement injection ramp,no difference.

    By the way, the diagnostic computer insists the fault lies in the throttle sensor (replaced), and the engine will only start/run with the vacuum hose disconnected ( the small one behind the inlet manifold ).

    yes they did, tried an alternative coil pack and leads, checked the plugs are sparking,etc. Thanks,matt
  6. Fiesta Mk4 Doing My Head In

    Hi there, I´ve got a 99 fiesta MK4, 1.3 petrol which has been at the "mechanics" for TWO MONTHS, now I´ve brought it home because it´s doing my head in,and I´m determined to fix it myself . Symptoms; poor idling,rough running, burning huge amounts of petrol and stinking the place out. Done so far; new throttle sensor,new idle air valve,replaced e.c.u, and watching useless mechanics scratch their heads for two months, any ideas? Matt
