      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.

    ford fiesta mk4 16v zetec
  1. I have just recently bought a 1996 mk4 fiesta for my partner and it is having a slight issue with stalling a lot. When it's cold it over revs till it warms which i belive is normal, the problem is when you rev the engine or if you are in 3rd or 4th and press the clutch to stop at lights the rev counter needle falls below the 800rpm mark and most of the time splutters to a stall. At first i though the idol was set too low if that was possible but i am now unsure, does any one know what it should be idoling at? I read in another topic that a guy replaced the idol control valve which helped in his over reving problems could that be the cause of it? and how hard and expensive is that to replace? Many thanks in advance.
