Question

My 2003 1242cc Ford Fiesta has nearly 80,000 miles and has just started making a rattling noise when the clutch is pressed down. This happens in gear and natural but is more noticeable at lower speeds (maybe due to general engine noise). Do have any idea what this could be.

Hi, I bought a brand new fiesta st3 from your gateshead branch in September last year. After months of happy motoring, there now appears to be a problem with the engine. At around 4000 revs, whilst accelerating, the car occasionally seems to cut out with car jerking and the revs dropping off. This is happening more frequently and was wondering what could be done.

Question

Hello All, I would appreciate suggestions for the possible cause and solution to an electrical issue. I recently bought a Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.4 TDCi (09). When I returned home I notice the near-side door mirror indication wasn't working. It folds on lock but the light didn't work. I removed the outer casing and replaced the bulb. This didn't fox the problem but then I noticed further back into the mirror a cable was un-plugged so I corrected this and hey presto. I tested the lights using the hazard button, which worked perfectly. When locking/unlocking the car the mirrors fold in/out and the indicator lights pulse as they should. Unfortunately I have noticed the wing mirror light stays on permanently when the car is running. I am a little stumped as they appeared to work correctly for the tests I did. Any suggestions to the case would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, -Duncan

Just purchased on 08 plate Fiesta 1.25 zetec from local garage - engine cuts out in 1st gear when coming to a halt. Embarrassing as others think I've stalled it!! Garage said the Idle Control Valve just needed cleaning, but even tho they did that it still happens on the odd occasion which is most odd and very frustrating! Would it be better to replace the valve entirely? Someone else has suggested a Vehicle Speed sensor, but have no idea how that would help! Any suggestions please as really love the car but feeling anxious every time I get to traffic lights/junctions now! Thanks

when I enter 2006 Mazda 2, Ford comes up - probably because, at the time, Ford owned a proportion of Mazda and there are common parts used in both so, I am hoping that the problem that we have, with our 2006 Mazda 2, is one that is shared with the Ford Fiesta. We have never had any problems with the electronics so, when today, after using the car all morning, it would not start. Underneath the mileage digital display, the letters EAC came up. The breakdown man, after having checked all the fuses, said that it was the immobiliser and towed me home. When I turn the key, I can hear a clicking noise - near the bonnet release lever in the passenger well - followed by a whirring noise. I, honestly, don't think that he really knew what the problem was, and was clutching at straws. Can anyone give me some indication of what might be wrong? Thank you so much.

I have had a problem with the battery warning light on my car. When I tried to open the bonnet the catch was jammed so it took about 20 mins to open the bonnet. When I finally opened it the engine cover was cracked and loose with holes in it. The were also other loose bits under the bonnet which didn't seem to be attched to anything. The last time the bonnet was opened was during air con repair at my usual ford dealer in August. I am really angry that this damage has occurred. The bonnet catch could break accidentally but it is not possible to leave all those cover plates loose under the bonnetaccidentally. What is the best way to complain?

Question

Dear people of JenningsFord, I recently had a leakage fixed (t-stat housing & t-stat replaced by Ford dealer) After that I'm having some trouble with my fans and cooling. I went back three times and they could not find the cause of this particular problem. Perhaps you have an idea? Whenever I start driving (engine cold) and get on to the highway everything is fine (cools like a charm!) Scenario: engine heats up to 100 degr.C -> Fan 1 kicks in (temp. stays normal) At about 120 km.h. temp. rises to about 110 degr.C Fan 2 kicks in and temp. engine stays normal (108 degr.C) BUT when I leave the highway and come into slower traffic (temp. between 100-110 degr.C) both cooling fans keep running (A/C off!) and temp. stays above 100 degr.C Demanding quite a lot of power of the engine (display sometimes flickers) When I pull over and let the engine idle for a while temp. drops slowly and both fans only shut off below 110 degr.C When I take it to the Highway again temp. rises to about 112-116 degr.C and does not go down unless I lower my speed. What could be the cause of such a problem? A bad relay (if so which one?) or a faulty resistor (fanshroud) or even a problem with the A/C?

I was driving yesterday and I think I heard a loud noise from the front of the car (KA, X reg), the engine sounds OK but the car wont get up to speed as easily and wont go abouve 70 mph, and generally feels sluggish under acceleration. The ride feels a little bumpier as well!!

Question

Hi there, I recently purchased a used Ford Fiesta, R reg. The heating doesn't work, only cold air is blowing through. Whilst there are many possible causes I am worried that it may in fact be a broken heater core as there are certian signs that this is the case. Is this likely to be an expensive thing to get fixed/replaced?
