      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. Hello, My Fiesta is at 170000 km and from some time it is behaving strange. It is a Fiesta 2003 with Semi Automatic gearbox. When moving off in traffic engine rpm go done about 500 rpms ( just ready to stall) then the ECU will kick in to bring it at about 1200-1500 rpms. I have to be quick from brake pedal to accelerator pedal not to have rpm s fall down. Changed throttle body but that solved nothing. Car has no IAC valve as it is an electronic throttle body. It seems like manual car when you release clutch without pushing accelerator. Car changes gear quite nicely and in highway runs normally. Will any vacuum leak cause rpms to go down? MAP sensor? Same happens in low gears when braking. rpms will go down ready to stall then ECU will increase them again.
