    Misfire Question

    Surprisingly the garage have agreed that I am entitled to a refund and all we have to do is wait for the V5C to come through so that we can legally sell it back to them, ie get a refund. Hopefully only a few days. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Yeah I'm not expecting an easy ride there. What was your eventual outcome? Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Misfire Question

    Serviced to schedule and was done at dealers last month. RAC recovery came out and checked it and it isn't drivable. It was towed to the dealers and I'll be breaking it to them that we are returning the car for a refund as I've no faith in the vehicle now. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Misfire Question

    We got a 2014 Ka 1.2 petrol with just over 10k on the clock last week and last night on the way home from work it came up with an engine error saying something about an injector fault (I haven't been in the car - my wife was driving and checked in the manual). The manual says it is safe to drive at moderate speeds. The car is booked in to the garage 2 days away but we really need the car between now and then - is it safe to continue driving (sensibly)? There is a loss of power and you can see how it's running from the attached videos. I don't want to damage the engine or cat and it not be covered under warranty (3 months Ford warranty left) but don't want to not drive it if we can. Thanks. http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/59084e49ba094/VID-20170502-WA0000.mp4 http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/59084e49d2651/VID-20170502-WA0001.mp4 Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Noise/Vibration Under Load

    I have almost stalled it yes and it isn't the same noise. Still trying to get used to this car as I normally drive a 2.2l diesel Land Rover which weighs about 2.5 tonnes. Very different engines :-) Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Noise/Vibration Under Load

    Great, will check that first. I had assumed a car with only 13000 on the clock would be like new :-) Silly me. Thanks. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  7. Hi everyone, first post here. My wife has just traded her old car in for a 2014 Ka Mk2 1.2 petrol. Nice little car. I noticed that when driving at low speeds and putting the engine under load, ie getting out of our lane which is a fairly steep hill with no run up. So essentially starting from a standstill going uphill. There is what sounds like something vibrating or rattling outside or under the car, definitely sounds like metal. Under normal driving there's no noise or issue. Never having driven a Ka before I've nothing to compare it to and I've never tried to get a 1.2 up the hill before :-) Is this normal and if not, is there anything I should check? Thanks.
